The built-in webcam on my Asus U52F-BBL9 does not work properly. The Lifeframe software opens and all camera images are blacked out. The camera is an USB 2.0 VGA UVC and the driver is the Chicony Sonix 260. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

Go to this site:
Sift through the menu choices until you pick the model of your notebook. Select your windows version, and it will show the drivers for your laptop. Download the latest driver for your touchpad, and install it. The touchpad should be working after that. If not, then there is something wrong with the hardware and you should get a computer shop to physically inspect it.

Hey..... i have a problem!I bought an Asus laptop and I had to start a problem. The webcam is upside down. I do not know what to do. I asked many people, but I did nothing. Many people told me to make...

You could try and fix this yourself. Which would obviously be preferable.
You wouldn't have to go any time without your laptop, and logically, it sounds like it should only be a 10 minute job to be able to flip the camera.
What you should do, is take it back to where you bought it from, ask for a replacement.

I have an asus laptop, and the built in webcam worked for about to weeks but it just stoped working, when i to open lifeframe it says the camera is being used my another program help me fix it

Did you try reinstalling the drivers? Maybe try uninstalling the webcam device from the Device Manager first.
Sometimes programs that install later can affect the workings of existing software or devices.

Asus Webcam constantly being used by mystery application

Built in webcams are not the easiest to troubleshoot as its difficult to reboot the webcam software.
With my plug-in I can just disconnect it for a couple of seconds to reboot it and clear the previous program.
Its not unusual for webcam software to remain hooked up to a program even after you exit it correctly.
What is unusual with yours the webcam comes on when you start your computer.
You might try to disable your webcam and then enable it again in the 'Imaging' folder of your Device Manager to see if the webcam light goes off and remains off when you enable it again.
You should be able to see where the webcam is being used by launching your Task Manager and hitting the Application tab.
Hope you can get your problem sorted and post some information on it for future reference
