Question about Webcams

Computer cannot read camera

Whether on my desk to {wit the dock} or on my laptop, when I connect the camera, both computers give the same warning:
"can not read the device"
I tried a new USB, contacted Kodak and followed their seven pages instructions, to no avail.
I have XP and the camera is a Kodak EasyShare Z612.
Can you please help?
Thank you.

You might have a USB registry error, you have to clean the registry. or you can try to use another port on the laptop. if none if this work and youve tried it on other compauters and same results, then your webcam is defective. time for a replacement.

My camera doesn't work


It is quiet difficult to address this problem as there can be many reasons for the same. Although for your perusal i am writing a few and their solutions:

1) Most importantly check whether your Camera Driver is installed correctly. To ensure that, Right Click My Computer, Manage, Device Manager and look if you can see any yellow question marks. If yes than download the driver and install it.

2) Acer Laptops comes with a Camera Software Utility, open it and see what it tells you about the status of your camera. If an error comes please post it here in comments.

3) Your camera is generally connected with a strip to the motherboard, if everything else is right then there can be problem with it. The connection of the strip could be loose.

I cannot used my logicool webcam, but i already connect it to the computer, but it does't work. what should I do?


You can go to other machines to test whether your camera can work, if it can work,maybe it is the problem of compatibility between driven and devices.
You can download the latest camera drivers and graphics drivers,install them,and then check. If the logicool webcam cann't work,it is likely that camera and graphics do not match, you have to give up and replace one.
I hope the above can help you.

As you run the program, write down the info about the camera so you will know what you have .
Double click on this site and download the Camera Diagnostic Tool and run it to check out your camera and/or problem.

I ran the diagnostic on my camera to give you an idea how well it works.
Give it a try.

I am not sure how to install the software


WARNING: DO NOT connect the camera to your computer before installing the software.
To install the software, insert the Logitech camera software CD into your computer's CD-ROM drive. The Setup screen should appear. If it does not, please perform the following steps:
  1. Click Start and then Run.
  2. Type D:Setup.exe and press the Enter key.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions.
After the computer reboots, the driver installation for the camera will start. Do not connect the camera until the setup prompts you to connect the camera cable to your computer.
While the driver installation progresses, remove the camera and camera base from the packaging and mount the camera on the camera base.
When prompted, plug the camera into the USB port. You should see the following diagram to let you know where to plug the camera in:

After the installation is complete, the camera should be ready to use.

Thanks

Try unplugging the USB cable and replugging it while the computer is on. I had the same problem you describe and also did a soft reboot of the computer which did not fix it. Cycling the power of the camera by unplugging it and plugging it back in fixed the picture.
