My cam doesnt work at all. its built in but the laptop normally says "you have no video capture device". i fixed all of this 3 days ago, yet when i tried it again today, i pressed my "P1" button to turn on the camera, which has always worked before but instead of even opening the program, it goes to the advanced search window.
Its broken camera cable in hinge area.. you must repair it or bring your notebook into the service or apply warranty. I had same problem and I fixed it. The cable is located in right hinge of the display (there are two black cables of wifi antenna too).
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Cause you did not specified your problem exactly ..I will refer about video capturing in general using the web camera and a laptop ..No matter if the camera is built in or external the procedure is the same...Open the AMcap..program in start menu / all program s..This is the program usually present when you install a web cam driver..and when you open it the camera will open a window for capturing ..If it shows nothing use the setings to enable video and audio and also the preview... This will make you an idea about the quality ..After that all you have to do is open the capture using the start capture function in options or so ..and stop them ...when you stop ..usually it asks to save the file in a location ...You may also be asked when you start to assign a size for the file .. There is a better way to make a capture and this is using a capture program ..and I will recommend the windows movie maker...Itis present in all windows..and has a capture from device feature..and you have the editor advantage with i t..and the fact that will capture from other devices than web cam alone .too..so you can increase the quality as well .. Please ask if you have any future question s.. Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided. Please show your appreciation by rating your experience. Thank You.

Assuming that you want to do your video editing in the PC rather than on the tape.
1.Your PC must have video capture device(either built-in or add-on). 2.Properly set your video editing software to able to capture video form your device. 3.Connect your camera to your PC in regular manner,like when you connect it to your TV. 4.Have your camera in PLAYBACK mode.wind the tape to the beginning of the footage you want to capture. 5.Open your editing software.turn on capture mode. 6.Start capture.At the same time,start playing back the footage on the cam. 7.When all footage were captured,click stop capture. 8.Start your editing work. 9.when complete,save it to some uncompressed video format like *.avi for later burning to DVD or converting to other format.
For beginners,I recommend Windows Movie Maker video editing software that should come bundled in almost every computer.It's fast,simple but effective enough for home-movie work.
BTW forget the old-school Linear Editing (on the tape) thing.It's slow,complicate and much less flexible than Non-Linear method.
Go to start button then right click on "My Computer" and choose properties. Look for the hardware tab then choose device manager and look through the list for a yellow exclamation point.It may be under "imaging". You can try removing the device, then when you reboot the computer it should find and install the device again.If this doesnt fix it then go to the manufacturers website and download the drivers for that models webcam.

I had the same problem and by accident I solved it by pressing a button. Up by my power button there is a group of 4 buttons the first one is i assume for e-mail the next is for internet i think the third is to start my wireless internet and the last one has a P1 above it thats the one that fixed the prob. for me. When i pressed it a pic. of a cam poped up briefly. It was so fast i had to try it again when i did a pic. of a cam with a line through it popped up so I knew I must have stumbled uppon turning it on and off. but now I have a new prob. When i start the cam it runs briefly then stops with a message that there was a prob. and windows searches for a solution and shuts the program down. It says they will notify me of a solution if there is one but i dont know how they can do that without any of my contact info. Anyways I hope this helps you out if you come across a solution to my new prob. please shoot me a e-mail my adress is firstname.lastname@example.org thanks and good luck.
