If this is happening to many customers, then the problem most likely does not lie with your system alone. Sometimes, computer companies release a line of systems with hardware that they do not know is faulty until after they ship to many consumers. Since you are under warranty, ASUS will most likely pay for you to ship your computer to their repair facility. This will be completely free of charge to you. If enough people are experiencing this problem, ASUS may return your computer with a new webcam.

When camera turns on lens makes a gritty sound like there may be sand or something in it. Other lens works fine so I know it is the lens and not the camera. It won't focus correctly. Not sure how to fix...

hi Nathandfrank.
this is all i could find out and it is from another fixya members(.obertelli and cosku arsiray.)

A few years ago that noise was extremely common on almost all body motor driven AF lenses, and it's not exactly uncommon these days.

Your kit lens is not bad, but it is built down to a price as a get-you-started measure. It's not built as well as the upgrade alternatives and is certainly not built to last nor with repairs in mind.

Your fix is to eventually replace your lens, preferably with one which has a built in motor which will be near silent and far faster to focus. Note that if your lens has become harder work for your camera body focus motor to operate then it will put an extra strain on the motor and can shorten it's lifespan.

If it is made of plastic kit lens, you have broken gears inside of that kit lens. mine did same. you need a new lens or you will use your camera in MF mode..
so its them two members you need to thank if you ever come across them on the fixya site.
hop this helps you out.

Wont connect to the computer anymore

Are you deeply attached to a USB connection? The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, or you can continue using whatever software you've been using.

How to Use a Sony DSC-W5 as a webcam?

Look at the supplied software and try the Yahoo/etc software but beware that most cameras are not built to run as a webcam. The designs are for size and wieght so the cameras tend to overheat and expire. If they don't tout the webcam feature, then you know why.
