I see person I call but they cannpt see me, only still picture can be seen. I printed the users guide and tried every thing..I am on Skype.

Try making sure you both have the same version of Skype. Sometimes an older version of Skype can also help.
Another thing to check is the DirectX version on both ends, as it is used for video rendering.
Some more ideas on how to fix webcam problems can maybe help as well.
