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

How do i turn on my web cam?


Hey Kara, your webcam should turn on by itself when a program requires it. For example, when you turn on Skype or Gmail video chat and connect video chat with someone the webcam turns on by it self. Some laptops already have a webcam program installed in the computer already. You can try to search for it using the windows search. I hope this helps. Give me a feedback if it does not. Good luck. - Joe

Just got a qwest pk5000z when plugged in power light stays solid green, dsl light stays solid green, then I receive Internet connection.. After about 30 seconds it resets and starts the whole process over....


Are you using the RJ45 ended Ethernet cable?
I've been battling an issue where an Ethernet cable plugged in caused the PK5000Z to reboot approximately every 120-300 seconds (2-5 minutes).
Switching to just the wireless and not having any Ethernet cables plugged in resolved the issue.
Unfortunately this won't work for me since I only use the modem as my gateway to the internet and actually have an Astaro Secure Gateway Firewall that connect to the modem via Ethernet. I'll be contacting their technical support again tomorrow as I've had 3 modems RMA'd and not a single person there at Century Link could figure out what to try except to keep RMAing them.
So anyone else hitting this issue, try using just the wireless instead of the Ethernet Cable.

I have a 2000 chevy silverado 1500. 3 nights ago, my truck started up just fine with no problems and has never had a problem starting up. The next morning, I tried to start it and the dash lights and radio...


do you have remote start on that truck? if you do, it has a hood safety switch that will keep it from starting if hood is open. That hood switch is quite easily identifyable. Look for it on the drivers side, either close to the firewall or right at the front of the fuse box.itsa worth taking a look

My bottom blades on my Falcon X Helicopter don't turn. I've looked and it seems the spinning bit connected to the engine (green coloured) is sitting right below the wheel connected to the blades....


Hi,
I think the problem is the green pinion drive gear, either it has already crack on the sides that's why it moves to another position.
You could adjust the green gear by pushing it where the big gear( wheel ) turns. There is a screw at the side of the propeller where you could tighten it to the point it can have a contact with the green gear.
You could buy that green gear in the internet.You don't have to disassemble the whole thing.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for using FixYa!

Webcam not detected


You may need drivers for your webcam, you can get the drivers from the CD in the packaging that the webcam came in. If you don't have the CD, I'll need more information on what type of webcam you're using to provide you with any direct links to drivers. Also, if you've already installed the drivers, try another USB port on your computer.

My green light won't go off on my dynex webcam


It sounds like your webcam software is hanging on to a program somewhere, and the chat program thinks its already in use.
This is unusual, insomuch that the webcam continues to transmit - almost as if its being forced by another program.
I always disconnect and re-connect the webcam to reboot it before going into chat, but its never had the light on.
Have a good scan of your programs to ensure you have no redundant webcam software creating conflicts.
I would suggest you uninstall the software - disconnect the webcam and install new software

Setting up Pentax Optio 50 to be webcam


When I was using a video camera as a web cam using Netmeeting, I found out a few things which may help. Once the connection is made, the settings from the other end play a part in the reproduction at your end. I.E. the image you are seeing at your end once connected to someone is actually their image, not yours. So what is really wrong is that their image is not appearing on your screan. Also, the size that they have selected controls the size of your displayed image etc. Have you tried connecting to other people or only one. The problem may be at the other end.
