Hi there,

You can turn on / off your webcam by holding down FN (bottom left of keyboard) and pressing appropriate F key (should have a diagram of a camera on it)

For example:

Hold FN and F7 together at the same time and release at the same time. This will turn on your webcam.
Repeat the process to turn webcam off.

Hope this helps and please rate, Thanks

    How to turn it on


    For some webcams, it is better to install the drivers and software first and then connect the camera afterwards.

    If you have installed the drivers and software with the camera connected, disconnect the webcam > uninstall all components of the webcam software > restart the computer > reinstall the webcam drivers and software > restart the computer > reconnect the webcam > (My) Computer > right click on the camera icon at the bottom of the window (scroll down if necessary) > send to > Desktop (create shortcut) > double click on the new desktop webcam icon.

    I hope this helps.

    How do i turn mycamera into a webcam

    Some cameras such as the Sony Cybershot line are pre-installed with a software that allows you to turn the camera into a webcam. Depending on which camera model it may be, you can either have this option or not. Usually with cameras that have the software, it should be shown somewhere in the manual. If not, you can use a third-party software like Sarmsoft Webcam.
    If your camera does this, then follow these steps:
    1. Check if the camera can be used as a webcam, if your camera doesn't come with the software, use the third party one.
    2. Plug the digital camera's power adapter into your camera. (Sometimes you may need to plug it into an A/C outlet for it to work) This makes sure that your camera doesn't die during broadcasting.
    3. Connect a video cable into your camera's "video out" port. Your camera most likely came with a cable made to connect to a video source. Plug the other into your video card "in" port.
    4. Set up your camera as close to the monitor as you can, it will look and shoot like a webcam in that position.
    5. If you camera doesn't have a built-in mic, then you may need to purchase one. However, most digital cameras capable of being a webcam already have a mic built in.
    Enjoy! and Good luck.

    My Labtec webcam is blurry ... Is this s problem with the camera ?

    This Web Cam is manually focused. Turn the ring on the front to adjust the fuzziness out.
    Use the camera software to see the focus while you turn the ring.

    How can i use my nikon l20 as webcam also

    You can't. It's designed as a still camera with limited video capabilities. Any videos go to the memory card or internal memory. It's not intended as a webcam.

    I have a windows vista and i dont know how to turn on my webcam

    If it is listed in the display for Computer" in Windows Explorer, clicking on it should open the camera.

    If it is not there in the list of drives, then its drivers may not be installed. Get the drivers of your camera for Vista and install them. Now you should be able to use the camera.

    I have a Toshiba A205-S4707 and I'm trying to turn on my webcam but, every time I try to turn on the Camera Assistant Software, it says "Error. Turn On Camera" Well, how do I do that?

    is you camera built in? or separate? try to reinstall the driver of your webcam, but first uninstall it in the device manager panel. note! be sure that your camera is properly connected to the computer. in order to determine that, unplug and reconnect the usb of your webcam, if the computer detects it, then your webcam is connected. Try the first suggestion.

    Good luck
