Question about Skype IM

I can see and hear my contact and they can hear me but they can't see me. I know my camera functions for taking pictures and videos and I've used skype once before several months ago and it worked wonders.

Hi,

Open Skype and click on Tools>Options...>Video Settings and see what you have as your Webcam. If it doesn't have anything listed you may need to reinstall the driver for it.

There are also some options to turn off video on the bottom of the right side. Make sure that wasn't selected by accident.

Thanks for using Fixya. Use the Comment link to post any additional information.

The picture has a delayed action


It's not possible to take a photo in a second, because the camera needs to get in focus the object you're taking picture of.

You have a square on your display that indicates where the focus will be.
With whatever function you use, you need to press the shutter button halfway and wait for the camera to focus on the object. When it's focused you will hear the click and the square will turn green.
Now your pictures shouldn't be blurry.

I have a canon rebel xsi that is not taking pictures on auto focus. It will take pictures on manual focus, but they're blurry. I changed my lens to a bigger one to see if it was the lens or camera, and...


Try cleaning the lens contacts on the camera body and on the lens.
This maybe the problem, it is not making contact with the lens zoom motor.
