Have you gone into System Preferences (click on Apple icon, top left of screen) and changed the Energy Saver settings? If the Energy Saver settings are set too low, your Mac will shut down.

My webcam is not wking on my mac book pro ,it says device not connected


Thank you for contacting FixYa Support, I am glad to assist.

The best way to check if your iSight camera is working is to launch the built-in Mac OS X chat application, iChatAV and under Preferences check the video setting and see if the video will activate the built-in iSight camera.

As iChatAV is the defacto application to use and check video settings, if you cannot get the device to work, then you will more than likely need to take your Macbook in for at least a diagnostics to have your iSight camera checked.

This iSight is a built-in device, that if not working, as an internal device for your Macbook Pro, it can only be checked by a certified Mac technician.

If you are referring to an external web camera connected to your Macbook Pro, however, please feel free to reply back to this post and specify the model you have and we will be glad to assist you with that product.

Regards,

I have msn on my macbook pro. i can instant message but cannot video conference, how do i do this ?


I do not believe msn has video conferencing for macs.You can get messenger for mac (the download) but it does not include video chatting. I am sure of this. However, Skype is great for mac videoconferencing. Gmail also has something to download for videoconferencing. http://www.google.com/chat/video

I have a mac laptop,and i cant see my cam on the MSN need help:


Take a look here:
http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.mac.messenger&tid=c104ad24-0ba2-4038-babb-82debd496db9&cat=en_US_f7cd3fd2-7356-4a5a-a5a1-3d328e7a8170&lang=en&cr=US&sloc=&p=1
The current version of MSN does not support video calling. You may want to try using Skype.
Good luck.

A lot of issues.


AOL is a POS. If you have a mac you will already have AIM linked to it via an application called ICHAT. Open that application, and fill your details. It IS AIM for Macs. If you do not have ICHAT you can download it for free.

Good luck

I would suggest you look in to Apple's Bootcamp. Although you do not want to run in a dual-boot configuration, Bootcamp allows you to create a CD with all of the Mac's windows drivers.

I appologize but I am not totally sure if 1) the Bootcamp drivers contain a camera driver and 2) if the camera works at all within Parallels.

Worth a shot though.
