SOURCE: please help..my webcam A4tech is not working

hi

generally the webcams need more light than the normal cameras try using a good light source to from behind the camera

also the lense on the camera if is moveable then try to rotate it a bit on both sides for a proper focus of the image

also if it comes with a software to capture the video or pictures from the camera try stopping it first then try connect to YM and you would be able to broadcast the video

cheers
pls rate if this was any help

SOURCE: Webcam ain't working just a black screen

Make sure you are not using the camera with any other application. Change the screen resolution of your computer to 800 X 600 Reboot the computer It should work normally.

Chicony webcam usb 2.0 PLEASE HELP (TOSHIBA)


Honestly speaking, the cost for USB webcams is so low (around $15 to $25) it is not worth the hassle. Just get a new camera and do not get upset with the one you have as fixing them is not worth the cost.
