SOURCE: why does my a4tech pk635m webcam not working in my yahoomessenger

See section B. Yahoo Messenger in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
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://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
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 to install that web cam model PK 635 M in windows 7.. coz evrytime i open my cam in yahoo messenger it say that no camera was found in the system


http://www.driverstock.com/a4tech-pk-635-driver-download/1-3-4200/index.html

I noticed that there is no Windows 7 specific driver for this older camera. This can be problematic as the older XP drivers sometimes work and sometimes do not work in Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit.

Good luck on this compatibility issue with Yahoo Messenger. Maybe try Skype or Windows Live Messenger for video chat.

I cant install my a4tech 635 camera


Hello,

Just visit your camera's manufacturer website and click "Support" to search for your product and download the driver.

Once the driver has been downloaded, just make sure the camera is not connected to your PC before stating installation of the camera driver.

Upon installation just follow instructions on connecting webcam to PC to finish installation and reboot PC.

Hope it helps.

Driver/software of a4tech web camera model: pk-635k,we cant use it in yahoo messenager!


est your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/

If it fails to broadcast - disconnect webcam - uninstall current webcam software - restart computer - download software from here

http://www.a4tech.com/ennew/support.asp

Once your webcam is working on your computer,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger.
YAHOO SPECIFICATION
To find out what the requirements are for messenger webcams and automatically download the latest control software , check out the following.
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/webcam/mstacamtest.html
You have to Use Internet Explorer for that.

Note
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it, and you can get a 'webcam not located' or 'webcam being used in another program' error message.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use the keyboard shortcut or disable / enable from the Device Manager.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

INTERNET CONNECTION
Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

TESTING
> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

PERMISSION OPTIONS
> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your selections ( who you will allow to view you) > Apply > OK

IN USE
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( 1 minute) before they see you, so dont be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.

Your contacts may need to configure their connection the same as INTERNET CONNECTION above ( less the reference to the webcam ) if they get a "webcam not connected" message

Plug in webcam
Visit this page, using Internet Explorer only !!
Make sure your webcam is displayed and allow time for control software to download onto your computer

Once your webcam is working here, you know its compatible with Yahoo and you can make your settings.

A4tech black or blank screen problem


Test your webcam here, by hitting "allow" in top window and assess your cam in left panel.
If it works there you know the Hardware is ok (webcam/lead/USB etc)
Test it in Yahoo
Re-boot the webcam by unplugging it from the USB and plugging it back in again
Open Messenger - Click (>) Messenger > My webcam > OK
Your webcam should launch - if it fails to do so you have a software problem.
Try updating your driver from the Imaging folder in Device Manager
Expand the folder, right click on your webcam text and select "Update driver" opt for Internet, when prompted.
No luck ?
Uninstall webcam software from Programs.
Restart computer
Go to A4Tech website and download software

Upside down display


Have checked with the manufacture for updated drivers. Many camera's that use windows uni-drivers fail to work in all applications. If updated drivers are available use them rather than windows drivers.
If you need further help just email.
