My hp mini web camera does not work


HP 2133 is a mini-computer (netbook) that comes with a built-in webcam you can use to take photos, record videos or video chat in messaging programs such as Skype or Yahoo Messenger. The built-in webcam generally fails to work if the driver is corrupt or damaged. Repair the webcam quickly and safely by reinstalling the driver from the HP website.

Restart your computer to reset the webcam driver. Go to the HP Support page (see Link Below). http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3687085&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3687084&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=2094 - 7831 Click the "Download" button next to "HP Webcam" to download the webcam driver. When prompted, click "Save" and save the driver installation file to your desktop. Double-click the webcam installation driver and click "Run" to launch the installation wizard. Follow the guided prompts on the wizard to complete the installation. Restart your computer. Launch your messenger, media or photo application and test the webcam.

I Have a Logitech Quickcam and it works... but it won't on yahoo


If the camera is working on other programs it should work on Yahoo Messenger.

The way to check is to ( in Messenger ) open "Messenger".
My Webcam.
You should see your picture on the camera there.
If you have the picture there then goto "Preferences" , "Webcam".

In there you will see 3 settings
"Always Ask my permission"
"Allow everyone to view my webcam"
"Always allow the following people to view my webcam"

Choose one of the settings, I use always allow the following people to view my webcam.

You can also tick the chatroom box.

HP KQ246AA not working with Yahoo Messenger 9


v Normal 0 See section B. Yahoo Messenger in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
Hope this helps. Bud

No there is no compatibility issue. But you cannot use cams simultaneously on 2 messenger. Make sure that when you using it in Yahoo messenger than msn is totally shut off. Try this it should help you.

If my advice helps you, than please feel free to rate me.

Gmail does not support video as far as I know. To chat with your friend over Yahoo you need to download the Yahoo Instant Messenger software. Others use the Microsoft Live Messenger or AOL Instant Messenger. Skype is another popular Instand Messenger program.

Yahoo messenger - Webcam is not connected


You cannot access camera source until the webcam is running in Messenger - try setting it up from scratch
1) The webcam is working outside of Messenger
2) Reboot webcam by unplugging the USB connection and inserting it again - its important if its been used elsewhere and prior to chat.
