This could be a problem with the driver, unistalling and reinstallingthe driver could probably resolve the issue. But if this doesn't help,there's an existing issue with microsoftwherein the webcam stops working or simply doesn't work after a while.They released a hotfix on their website that you might want to try todownload and patch your windowswith. The problem description might not be the exact same error thatyou are getting but it's worth a try. I've tried this patch on a numberof issues that isn't included on the description. This is also a bitsafer than downloading other patches from unknown third-party websitessince it is coming from microsoft themselves. Just click on thehyperlink below or copy and paste it on your address bar if it is notavailable.

Check if you download any new application that makes a conflict with your webcam? just remeber if you did download any program and this makes the problems, if you donot want to do this , just go to start, programms, accessories, system tools, and restore yout pc to the day before this problem happened and you will be fine.

Locked by another aoolication (web cam) please advise


Do you have a fire wall running on your PC. If so disable your firewall and check to see if the web cam starts. If this is not the case do you have any type of internet child protection software installed?

Toshiba satellite a205 webcam says locked by another application


I don't know what exactly fixed the problem but I managed to fix it. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A215 by the way.

Here's what I did
Control Panel >> System Maintenance >> Device Manager

Go to Imaging Devices and right-click "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera" and choose "Update Driver Software"

First I clicked on "Search automatically for updated driver software" but everything was already up to date. So then I went to "Browse my Computer for Driver Software" and then to "Let Me Pick from a List". I updated the USB Video Device and rebooted but that only made it worse I think. Then I tried updating one of the "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera"'s and that did the trick. Yey. So now my webcam works.
