My webcam is not wking on my mac book pro ,it says device not connected


Thank you for contacting FixYa Support, I am glad to assist.

The best way to check if your iSight camera is working is to launch the built-in Mac OS X chat application, iChatAV and under Preferences check the video setting and see if the video will activate the built-in iSight camera.

As iChatAV is the defacto application to use and check video settings, if you cannot get the device to work, then you will more than likely need to take your Macbook in for at least a diagnostics to have your iSight camera checked.

This iSight is a built-in device, that if not working, as an internal device for your Macbook Pro, it can only be checked by a certified Mac technician.

If you are referring to an external web camera connected to your Macbook Pro, however, please feel free to reply back to this post and specify the model you have and we will be glad to assist you with that product.

Regards,

My daughter says her built in Isight camera is only showing black. This happened one time before and I found a fix online that was a couple of keystrokes but cant find it now...she has taken the battery...


1.) Shut down the system completely, remove the battery, and disconnect the power adapter.
2.) Press and hold the power button on the laptop for a few seconds. This drains all the power lingering in your Mac.
3.) Re-insert the battery and power adapter (if you were using it before), and turn your Mac back on as your normally would.

Does apple poewerbook g4 have webcam installed


No. You gots to get a Macbook or MacBook Pro for the built in web cam.
You can buy a Mac Ally web cam and clip it on the top of the powerbook for a web cam, but it looks odd in contrast to the stream lined architecture of the Power Book.

Logiteck Pro webcam on Mac does not want to work


You should be able to select the Logitech webcam in the Settings of the program you are using. Try this free webcam test site. Click on the camera icon and then choose the Logitech from the drop down list. Once you are sure it is loaded and working properly, go into your service and select the Logitech. In Skype it is under Settings, Camera. In MSN click Tools, Audio & Video set up, Next. It should give you the option to choose what camera you want to use.

Mac mini does not recognize web cam.


Mac's have a set of built in drivers that list a group of brands they support with out additional drivers. I can't remember which ones but they tend to like logitech cameras a lot better. They like iSight camera's the best.
