Sounds like it might be driver related...try downloading Sony Drivers Update Utility and that should update all your drivers, here is a link to the download:

No webcam detected on oovoo


Make sure no other programs such as Skype are running at the time. If Skype is running and using the web cam, its likely it will be unavailable to other programs. Online virus removalWindows8Blog

Unable to detect webcam on aa Toshiba laaptop while using skype


Make sure the WEBcam driver is installed.
When the WEBcam works then the fault is with the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the installed WEBcam - Save the settings.

I have a compaq presario cq56 115dx and i dont know how to use the camera like on skype i want to make a video call and i cant


This model Compaq laptop does not have a built-in WEB cam.
You can check the specs from this WEB site.
http://www.cnet.com/laptops/compaq-presario-cq56-115dx/4507-3121_7-34498057.html

To use video call with Skype you need to purchase an USB WEBcam, connect the WEBcam into the Compaq laptop's USB port and install the WEBcam driver that came with the WEBcam.
Then configure Skype - select the WEBcam and mic.

I have problem with my DELL Inspiron N5030 - i cant use my webcamera - dell webcam center reports .*set up could not detect any Dell Webcam central on your system* I have updated drivers, new webcam...


Just for the purpose of isolation, try to download other application that has a webcam application like yahoo messenger or skype. If it still does not work, most probably there might be a loose connection or simply the webcam itself is defective. You might need to contact Dell to have it serviced.
On the other hand if yahoo messenger or skype works, you can either just used these applications or try to reinstall the software (dell webcam manager).

I am using skype and i tried to turn on my webcam but it says my webcam cant connect.im tryin to find out how to turn it on but i cant..can you please help me.


Skype automatically detects the Web-cam only if it works already well with windows. So go to my computer> see if its listed in the scanners and Cameras devices.

If not listed, then you shall need the drivers for it in order to work in windows.
