Question about Creative Labs PC-Cam 350 Digital Camera

Camera doesnt work

I bought this camera 6 years ago and it was working fine until last year. At first, I didnt give attention to it (while running XP SP2). Now, i have updated my system and it has Windows Vista installed in it. Somehow I installed the required drivers,skipping couple of Windows Vista driver compatability warnings, but still the camera doesnt work. it only displays black screen (sometimes with dark colored lines of the actual images for a small portion of screen only).

I installed the PCCAM 350 drivers whilst in Vista SAFE mode. After rebooting it seems to work OK with Messenger & Skype.

Sorry talhahs, creative has not written Vista compatible driver software for you're PC-Cam 350 camera. Hence you're camera will not function with any version of Vista.
There are few SD readers currently that are compatible with Vista. Click on this link to see one type.

A card reader that will help you in transferring pictures from you’re camera to you’re PC while using Vista.
Win XP, unlike Vista will still run program software even if it has not passed MS's compatability.

Good Luck!

    talhahs, please ignor the part about the SD card reader. That has nothing to do with you're web cam. Sorry....

    Well think about it!

    The web-cam is six years old. Yeah I got that it did not function with WinXP but it's a mute point since you installed Vista. It does not change the fact that it will not run with Vista. The cheapest thing you can do would be to buy a Vista compatible web cam. There is nothing you can do to possible repair the cam.

Hi there please reset the camera 1st . THen pair your battery with your camera. Go in menu then battery type option. Select the type of a battery. After that save the setting. Now try . If you face the same problem then the camera internal power transformer are damaged or week. So you need to replace that transformer after that it will start work properly. You use that camera so long, that's why there is a chance of that damaged. Thanks if its helpful then rating me.

My fuji fine pix z1's flash doesnt work. i dont even remember it worked ever. the pics are blurred most of the time


1) Check you're settings are all on "Auto".
2) The button you press to take the photo is a 2 stage button. Press half way, if you're gentle you should feel a slight resistance. Pause at this stage, just for a moment to allow your camera to focus properly. Then proceed with the action until photo is taken.
3) It takes a little practice to get used to it, but with any luck you photo's should be crisp.

4) If this doesn't work and you bought it less than a year ago, take it back to the shop and comlain.

Turns itself off every time I try to take a photo


I had a similar problem with my Cyber-shot S600. It just turned off every time I tried to take a photo. I bought a Sony recharger + batteries and it fixed the problem. Camera works fine and I'm impressed with the how long the batteries last between charges.
