My chicony usb 2.0 webcam worked for months and then I sent away the laptop to get the screen fixed and ever since then my webcam doesn't work. It says webcam driver open failed. Please restart pc or laptop now. The imaging devices is no longer in my device manager either. Any Ideas?

Driver open failed - I got the link for you so you can re-install the driver for webcam http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=2175704&rpn=PSLB0U&modelFilter=L300-ST2501&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663. In case this failed, please format the computer but make sure your data are saved. In case this failed and you will get the same error, you need to send it in for repair. Call Toshiba @ 18004577777 to get an order# for repair if you're still in warranty. If not, visit any Service Center near you!

    If in case you already rebooted your computer to factory and still it didnt work, you need to send the computer for camera repair. It is already defective.

Sounds as if there is a driver issue not being installed or they have not connected the webcam back up inside the screen

Chicony webcam usb 2.0 PLEASE HELP (TOSHIBA)


Honestly speaking, the cost for USB webcams is so low (around $15 to $25) it is not worth the hassle. Just get a new camera and do not get upset with the one you have as fixing them is not worth the cost.

My Chicony USB 2.0 camera on my toshiba vista home premium, intel celeron inside, doesn't work normally. you can use it on Skype hotmail and Facebook but u can take pictures with it normally. Ther


Suggest you go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. Scroll down through the installed programs to see what the camera app is actually called, then search for that name in the "Search" box that pops up after you click on the Start menu (before you click All Programs).

Or try just typing Chicony in the search box.

Chicony USB 2.0 camera will not work


Please uninstall the camera from Control Panel->Ad Remove Programs and reboot. Then insert the CD that came with the camera and install its drivers. Reboot. Now attach the webcam and allow Windows to detect the webcam and load its drivers till you get a msg in the right bottom corner of the screen saying "The new HW is installed and is ready for use". Now start MSn and configure it for this webcam as default webcam and save settings. Now you can start your Video Calls.

My toshiba web cam is not working,


Windows Vista has compatibility issues with many webcams because the ACPI is different; need to know the make/model of your webcam.

I am assuming you have a Chicony USB 2.0 Webcam made by Toshiba...
