I can not get the web cam to work

Open your selected communications software program and click the webcam button to work your webcam.

Step by step procedure on how to open my web cam on my eM350


With regard to your eMachines Netbook EM350, for you to open the web cam, you just need to click on Start then click All Programs, and you should see a software for Cam. Just click on it and you will be able to use it to capture still photos and videos.

In the event you wanted to use it for chatting like yahoo messenger, once you open the application (example: yahoo messenger), you should see your web cam available in the options.

I hope this solution will help you resolve your issue.

Thank you,
Jack

I dont know how to turn on my web cam camera ?


If you start any application which uses webcam, it should be activated automatically.
For example, use your yahoo messenger / yahoo messenger / the camera application that came along with the computer. First time you have to choose the camera / imaging device, once done from the next time onwards the application will directly open the camera.

Cristal eye not supporting yahoo messenger vedio chatting


This usually happens when the cam is still being used by another application. Go to Task Manager and see if windows live messenger is still running. If so close it in Task Manager then try to run the cam again in yahoo messenger.
