Follow the instructions below and it will work.

Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program.

When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.
Web Camera's have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the
camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype

http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/

set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on "Open the call setup assistant" and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.
Hope this helps. Bud

When i take pictures or on webcam with some1 they say im bluryy and i need help so i can see a clear picture of my self no blurry


webcams are not good for taking still photos. they are best for video. and even at that they are not very good quality, their use is for online streaming of video, which they are good at.

if you really want to take a good still photograph with your webcam you should use the application that comes with it, make sure not to move, and make sure the lighting in the room is static, else the camera will keep adjusting which results in a blurry image.

My webcam is really really blurry and i need to get it off help


Simplest answer: Usually webcams have a focus dial, this is usually a colored ring around the lens, you can actually turn this back and forth to focus better. I would try that above all else.

If that doesn't work you may actually have a problem with the camera. You could try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, and try a different USB port to plug it into.

Also try it with other video conferencing applications. If Google is Blurry and Skype is not, it may be a problem with the software you are using.

If all of those things fail, it may just be a worn out camera. If that's the case you may need to replace it.

My webcam is really blurry on skype and no one can see me . Help Me!!


all you can do is ensure the lens is clean without removing the bezel and manually adjusting the focus. if its less than two years old its enough reason to have acer fix it if you give them a call.

Got no picture all blurry


No picture or one that is all blurry? If blurry,
Clean the lens and make sure it is not loose or damaged. The camera cannot produce blurry pictures at distances greater than around 0.3m ish as it has a fixed focus lens. If it really is blurred either you are too close to the lens, the lens to sensor distance is wrong (mechanical damage) or the lens is dirty.
I hope that helps

The camera lens is blurry. Not clear focus.


1) Check if there is a ring on the lens that you can adjust to sharpen the focus, 2) try the tips in the article How To Improve Your Webcam Video Quality.

The camera is blurry and out of focus. How can I solve it?


Hi there, Just tune the black circle in front of the lens, that is a focusing part of the lens. Turn on your camera and when you seen your video then start tuning for focusing. It will solve your blurry & focusing problem.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

What would cause the image on a vx3000 to be blurry on either side of connection.im on xp,cable and other is on vista,satalite


Hi,
if your webcam’s image is not sharp, check to see if it has a focus ring. A blurry image can sometimes simply mean the webcam is not in focus. Adjusting the focus through the ring can solve that problem.
If it Doesnt work try to change video capture properties for webcam.Most of the programs have an option to access the properties of the video source which will bring up the video capture properties window. (Msn, Yahoo Etc.)

My camera is blurry every time i open up a video chat


Theres a few ways you could try to rotate the lense and see if itll fix just by normal focusing. Though the program you installed in the CD you can set the defaults which should also come with a "Zeroing" as it were. Try those 2 and see if they work, also check for new updated drivers just incase. If those fail then i would uninstall and reinstall
