Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I had this problem myself. After a LONG talk with an HP technician we finally sorted it out.
It was actually down to several programs trying to use the camera at the same time, mainly instant messengers, so the first thing to do is to shut down all instant messengers. If possible, from their preferences stop them running when the machine starts.
Once you've done that, try the HP Quickplay (any of the little buttons) and go to the camera from there. It should work. Sometimes a reboot is required if a particularly obstinate instant messenger has activated the camera but not turned it on, and won't release it.
