I won't say the camera is usable as a webcam because you will definitely severly shorten the life of the camera by using it as such. Firstly the camera is designed to take photos and short videos, NOT being left on continuously for use as a webcam. The heat generated by doing so could damage the delicate CCD (the part which collects light from the lens and converts it into electrical signals) Secondly most cameras are deigned to switch themselves off after a certain period of non use. Not handy for webcams.
Next there's the power issue. Unless you are using an external power supply for the camera you will be forever replacing batteries and for what an external power supply costs you could buy a proper made for the job USB powered WebCam complete with focus and sometimes zoom.
Next there's the mounting issue. Where will you mount the camera to give a well lit and steady picture of your face. Definitely not on top of the monitor due to extra heat generated by the monitor itself. Mix that with camera's heat and hello, and too soon, goodbye camera.
Webcams cost $20 if ou shop around maybe cheaper. OK your cmera will give a better picture but at the distance you're talking it won't matter. Plus you will need software to generate the webcam picture. MSN is a good webcam program. Plus depending on the output of the camera, usually only video. You may need a video capture card for your computer. The camera will give you a full screen image of what it's pointed at but you need a box to put a smaller picture in on the screen otherwise all you will see is one big face, yours.
So do you really want to wear your camera out prematurely simply because you can't afford a $20 webcam. The made for the job unit is cheap, will stay on all day and the power comes from the USB port. Everything you need and cheap. I think you know which way to go.

1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format.
