Acer orbi cam not working


Wow..i've posted many answers to the Orbi Cam...

I will repost the urls for you...Being an Acer owner, I know how frustrating it is getting this camera to work.

First of all, uninstall any drivers you currently have for that orbi cam.
Secondly, visit this site and install

Camera Bison Driver ver. 5.0

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5680.html

Once you have downloaded that specific driver, extract it, and reboot. Let me know if this works for you ...if not we can install the Orbi Cam driver as well, from the same site..

Good Luck

Acer orbi cam not working


Your Acer has all of your programs saved and accessible--in a hidden partition on your hard drive. you can find your manual by clicking on start, then all programs, then acer system.

But to fixya, first try making a new folder and moving all of your pictures to it, leaving your pictures file empty. Bizarre, but that can work, heavens knows why. Or, go to control panel, then check out device manager to see if you have any nasty big checks. If imaging devices has a big check, try reinstalling the driver there. If that doesn't fixya, click on Start, then Acer Empowering Technology, then Acer E-Recovery,and choose Restore Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab. (that's where you get access to reinstall any of your programs) It will extract; then click Install for Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - Camera or CCD - on the right side of the screen for your model which you saw in device manager. Please let me know if that doesnt do the trick.

Acer orbi cam not working


Hi,
I think ur laptop webcam driver not installed properly.If ur laptop have windows vista operating system then do these steps.
Goto Start - Programs - Recovery Manager - Recovery Manager.In that recovery manager,click on next.Its shows the Software reinstallation page.Click on next button two times.Its shows the software lists.Select the webcam software and click on next button.After reinstallation completed , u restart laptop and check it.
If ur laptop have windows XP operating system then u uninstall the webcam software through Add/Remove program and restart it.After restarting ,Reinstall the web cam software and check it. If u doesnt have webcam drivers then u go for nearest service centre and install it.

Thanks

You need 2 things, 1 is orbicam driver and 2 is orbicam application.
Checked in the device manager if your camera is installed, it shoud under "imaging device". If it is installed, you need to install the application, this software you can get from acer website (www.acerpanam.com). there are 3 type of orbicam for this model (suyin, bison, logitech), you should try one by one. the driver and application, you can download from that website (www.acerpanam.com)
The other way to solve your problem is to reload the Operating system using disks/Alt+F10, it will wipe out your c partition, it's the easiest way.

Checked if your orbicam is in device manager (under imaging device),
if it still there, you might have wrong orbicam application installed. try to download the orbicam application, there are 3 type of orbicam for Aspire 5050 (suyin, bison and logitech). try to installed one by one.
or if you can try to reload the whole windows, using alt+f10 during boot.

** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that
folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.

If that does not work then do this:

Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will
"Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say
extracting) - once extracted - click Install or Guides and Manuals if needing Orbicam instructions - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the
right side of the screen, then look for Bison driver or (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) you have then click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions. Then repeat steps above and instead of driver choose Bison (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) Utility
