Toshiba Satellite A 215 - Webcam Doesn't Work

My Toshiba Satellite A 215 has a built in webcam that doesn't work w/ any of my messenger features (MSN, Skype, etc.). At one time it worked w/ MSN but never w/ Skype, which is ironic b/c it's supposed to be a "Skype-ready" laptop. Anyway, being technological idiot the only way I know to even check my webcam is to go into Skype-options-webcam. Here it either shows my picture (working) or remains black (not working). I don't know how to begin fixing it from this point. Any suggestions are welcome.

Thank you,
J. Van Eynde

    No, it does not show in My Computer. Nor is anything listed in Scanners & Cameras under the Control Panel.

    If you go into My Computer, does the web camera appear on that window?

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


if you have the webcam center opened along with with msn then it wont work on either one of them.
you can try these steps tp check if it works for you or not.

1)look for the web cam center system tray icon and right click on it if its there and select exit

and as u said u cant see you self in web cam console --- in webcam console you can only see your self under the doodling tab and only of your webcam is working at that i.e

either you have the webcam center opened or any other messenger or software which turns on your cam then only ull be able to view your cam in webcam console alongside.

Friend's new laptop webcam not working on windows live messenger


Hi,
I have a toshiba satellite too. I had the same problem when i had just bought my laptop. It seems like it is a software or driver problem, nothing wrong with the hardware. Do this once or twice and this problem wont reoccur, it hasn't for me again. Go to device manager and disable the webcam, restart the computer then go back and enable it. Now the webcam will for fine with all instant messengers. I remember donig this few times when my laptop was new. Now its been over a year and this problem hasnot occured again. I hope this helps you too or your friend.

Toshiba Satellite A200-AH5 Troubleshoot


The type of pc is not as important as the type of webcam at this point. The story also needs more details.

If you had a Logtec webcam and at first it only worked with its custom made software, what did you do to make it work with MSN?
----------------
Based of the info provided, I would
1. uninstall all cam software while the cam is unpluged,

2. Reboot the pc. Then plug the cam in.

3. When windows detects the cam, it will ask for drivers, do not click on search on windows update website, click the option to choose from a specific location and then browse to the cd provided.

4. Try and load msn now. The msn website or the cam company sometimes have a patch to make the cam and the messenger work together. I would check the cam website before looking around the microsoft site.

Using new Satallite P200-1EE, webcam is not connected message with Yahoo Messenger


I'm using a Toshiba satellite notebook A200, which I faced the same problem like you saying my built- in webcam cannot operate after I clicked on the drop down list from the windows live messenger to have a webcam conversation. Another program is running the webcam at startup. That program is called Camera Assistant Software which is the conflicting software. Therefore I closed this software and I'm able to use my webcam again in my webcam conversation in windows live messenger. I hope this information will help you.Good Luck!
