  • welmags Jul 14, 2008

    it's already out of warranty

  • welmags Jul 14, 2008

    sorry,I just acant rate the solution because everything i want to know for fixing my problem is just not there,i've done this all a year ago but it just doesn't work,as a matter of fact i already uninstall it in my system but the problem still pops up evrytime i open my laptop,that's why i seek assistance,so maybe i still do what i always does everytime it pops up with sound,just tilt the built in cam so the sound will dissappear.

I'm sorry to say that this problem won't be fixed with software. From your description, I think that the ribbon cable that connects to the webcam itself has a small hairline crack in it and needs to be replaced. If a ground connection is one of the cracked traces, then the sound you are hearing is what is called crosstalk. Without the grond connected, the data lines act like antennas and pick up all kinds of interference noise. This unit will need to be opened up and the cable replaced. That should silence the noise and also allow the camera portion to work as well. Since you have removed the software drivers, you will need to re-install them once the cable has been replaced.


Hope this helps to at least explain what is happening.

    Could you mention whether you are running XP or Vista, and if Vista, was it an upgrade, or original install?

Hi-

Make sure all drivers are updated, and if you have the warranty for it might as well call manufacturer for support. Thanks for using Fixya!!

    Check this site, click HERE and download the recent driver for your cam

    hi-

    Or better have it service by an expert on this, because chances are there are some wires that are pinched on something in which its making up the sound and by adjusting it, it goes away.

    Thanks for using fixya though, have a nice day!

    please tell the problem in detail

    malfunction is a very general term for describing a problem. and hence it would be kind enough if you describe the problem in detail sir.

    thank you


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jul 14, 2008

    sound due to camera position?? this sounds like a hardware issue. and i think you will have to dismantle the unit to check up this problem.

    so please start the repair only if you are good in electronics and laptops.

    thank you

    good luck


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jul 14, 2008

    "there's a sound that wont stop and i have to tilt my cam just to get rid of the sound"
    this is enough to say that the problem is nothing to do with the software and the drivers.

    why dint you take this to a service center from one year??

    this is a clear hardware fault from my point. this can be even some small problem like a connection interface problem.

    is you want to avoid the cost of going to a service center then i would either recommend you to take risk and disassemble the unit to repair it.

    else leave the problem as it is. it may clear itself in time being.

Try disconnecting and plugging back usb

    Try first disconnecting computer power cable for 10 minutes and then plug it back. Also disconnect the usb cable, and then re-connect it, eventually using a different USB port.
    If this does not fix it, then you will need to reinstall drivers.
    Unplug the cam from USB, put inside driver disk and start again software and driver setup program.
    Disconnect the cam from USB before installing driver connect it back only when required explicitly by setup or after installing driver.
    If you do not have the disk you will need to download driver software from factory website.

    Then reinstall the drivers provided for orbicam on Acer website. Before doing this disconnect laptop from power and remove battery for five minutes, this can fix it.

    Use the link above, click 'drivers and utilities', either on Vista or Win XP, depending on your system. There you will find Orbicam drivers listed in a drop down menu.

Model5742 web cam not working


The Acer OrbiCam is a built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam mounted at the top of certain Acer laptops. The webcam can record video clips and integrate with instant messaging software. If you are trying to use your Acer OrbiCam but it won't connect, the driver--a small software file that tells the webcam what to do--may be outdated. Acer provides webcam driver update pages for the Aspire 9300 and Aspire 5570 versions.

1.Go to the Acer 5570 or Acer 9300 Driver Download page (see Resources).
2.Click "MS Windows XP" or "MS Windows Vista" on the drop-down menu, depending on your operating system.
3.Select "Acer OrbiCam Bison Driver" from the menu.
4.Click "Save File > OK" and wait for it to download.
5.Double-click on the downloaded setup files to install the driver.
6.Go back to the Acer Downloads page, and select "Acer OrbiCam Driver Bison Utility 1.0.0.13" from the drop-down menu.
7.Click on "Save File > OK" and wait for it to download. Double-click on the downloaded setup files to install the driver.
8.Restart the computer.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya
