Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam

1 Answer

Microsoft Life CAm does not work.

It stopped working suddenly one day when we were in the middle of a Skype conversation. I got a message that there was a new device connected to the USB port, and to please put the installation CD. When I put the installation CD, it says now connect your webcam, even though it is already installed. I uninstalled everything and reinstalled the CD, but I keep getting this endless loop where the computer says found a new USB device and the installation wizard says plug in your webcam. I went and bought a different webcam, and am having the same issue with that one as well. Can you please help me troubleshoot this?

Normal 0 Start Skype ThenGo to "TOOLS", click on "OPTIONS," Then go to "Audio Settings" and click on it. Make sure both the Microphone and Speaker's are correctly chosen. Then "make a free test call." Wait till the voice tells you to record. Then when finished talking wait for the test persons voice to insure your audio transmission is working. Then go back to options and test your video settings. Click on Video Settings and proceed to set up you video camera. Also, you can visit this site for additional information to setup video.

When using Skype, I get an error message and people hear me but


Hi, I checked and found that the Oker web cam was rated one of the best for Skype. If you read Microsoft's review of your cam it shows that it's really made for the Windows Live System. Check out this link on the Oker.

7a9bc13.gif If you can do it, buy a Oker and test it out to see if the problem is with your cam and not the pc. If it turns out the same as your MS cam then we can look into your setup on your PC. but you have stated that your cam works find with other software. Let me know how it went.
