Hi,

If it is connected using a usb cable, make sure the cable is connected properly or else try to plug the cable into a different USB port. If it still doesn't work than uninstall the drivers completely, unplug your webcam >> restart your computer >> install the drivers and connect the camera when it asks for it.

Good Luck!

Webcam detected and installed but no image seen


It means that the chat program software cannot locate your webcam.
When you use your webcam in different programs - sometimes the webcam remains hooked up to the old program and the new program thinks its already in use.
Before you open a chat program re-boot the webcam software by unplugging it for a few seconds and then re-connect it to the USB again

I have tried to install the software that is given from the link and several others but it keeps appearing an error message saying there is an error during installation. What can I do?


Have you uninstalled all the old webcam software on your pc ?
Download Revo and scan your computer for any webcam software - uninstall whatever you find.
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html

Back this up with a manual scan - Start > Computer >> Local disk (C) >>Program files
Look for any folders that may be webcam related especially Lifecam
delete the folder if found.
Install software from Microsoft support. Select your OS and type Your webcam model into the search box
Close all programs when installing software and dis-connect webcam.
