    light stay on no detection

  • x_soldat Nov 09, 2008

    Yardsale Quickcam Pro 3000 aka V-UJ6, behaviour is same under Win_2000 and Win_XP. Have downloaded about 4 different variations of the windows drivers from Logitec and have downloaded and installed DirectX9 as required.

    Install proceeds to the point where the menu asks you to plug in the webcam. After you plug the cam in, the green status light on the cam lights up and stays lit. Thus, it is getting the juice it needs. But, evidently, no signal is getting back to the machine, since the device is not recognized.

    Could it have been damaged only partially? It's very odd since it is getting power.

Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


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 set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. 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:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

How do i use digital live cam on samsung r580


It should already be detected by your OS.The digital livecam on the R580 is interal and built into the case above the lcd display.It's not a device you need to add via a USB cable On this model Samsung provide Cyberlink You Cam preloaded on the machine. Starting the app detects your integral camera (and allows many extra effects to be added) Youcam provides Youtube support and recording functions with filters and effects,also capturing audio via the interal mic positioned bottom left of keyboard.
support page for youcam 2.0
http://www.cyberlink.com/CS/support/enu/support_index.jsp
If you simply start camera functions (without youcam) on yahoo messenger or windows messenger you should find its already detected by those programs and installed as a webcam in windows 7 anyway,so a very minimal setup process.

Brand new HP computer with Integrated Webcam Not working


Do you have the USB cable connection from the monitor hooked up to your computer? If so, are your USB ports configured properly?
Your computer should alert you with an audible tone indication whenever you connect or disconnect the webcam USB cable. If it is not doing this, The webcam itself may be defective.

If it still fails, try to download the newest drivers for your webcam.

and also check if your webcam works with another messenging program like skype or msn messenger... your firewall on your PC could be blocking the webcam data stream
