That normally means that it is in some way being used by another program. Perhaps an instant messenger, video application or something of the sort.

Try restarting your computer, and see if that fixes the problem first. If not, let me know and we can try something else.

I got an open box laptop Dell Inspiron and the webcamera was initially working right after I got it. But now whenever I go to click on the webcamera folder, it only will open the webcamera console and not...


Hello,
With certain webcams there are actually 2 parts of the application to look for, one of them is going to be the console which is what you have found the other one will have various names but is often called the "Centre" which is what will actually run the cam for you. If this was uninstalled before you purchased it, you should be able to re-download the entire application from Dell's website. I would recommend uninstalling the console before you download the new software package.
Best of luck to you!

Web Cam Not functioning properly


You may uninstall the web cam driver from the Device Manager then restart the Computer. After restarting the Computer, please reinstall the web cam driver. You may locate the Web cam driver under the Imaging Devices category in the Device Manager. If the issue persists then you may perform System Restore to restore the system files to the time when the web cam worked normally.

HOW TO RUN INBUILT CAMERA IN LAPTOP


Try the picasa (initially loaded on your machine), click the camera button then check whether it is okay.

If you don't have a picase, check your messenger then click the webcam to check if it is working.

There is no application in Lenovo to check the camera unless you have the applications mentioned above.
