    OS: Windows Vista 32
    Webcam: Logitech QuickCam Communicate MP
    Logitech Software Version: 11.80

    This webcam worked fine when it was first installed. Within the first couple weeks, I began having the problem of seeing a black screen instead of a video image, with both the logitech software and Yahoo Messenger. A few times, this problem was fixed, by restarting computer, and once by ending all related processes in Task Manager, then restarting Logitech software.

    Currently, I am only seeing the black screen, and cannot get a video image. I did uninstall all Logitech software, restart the computer, and reinstall Logitech software. The problem persists. I have not received any error messages at any time relating to this problem. The camera appears to work fine; however, it only shows black.

Try unplugging the USB cable and replugging it while the computer is on. I had the same problem you describe and also did a soft reboot of the computer which did not fix it. Cycling the power of the camera by unplugging it and plugging it back in fixed the picture.

Logitechquick cam - can't see my mother


Hi,

from the logitech video instructions it says:
Going full screen is easy. When you're on a video call, just click the icon (on the left corner) to enlarge your video to full screen.
Just click on the video or press ESC to return to normal video size.
Picture-in-picture allows you to see what others see. Click on the PIP icon to turn it on.

If this is not working as it is the latest XP driver needs to be downloaded from the logitech web site.

Logitech QuickCam E3500 to use with Yahoo Messenger


  • Is there enough light in the room? Flip a switch to light up the room a bit more.
  • Is your camera functioning properly? Try your camera alone; separate from Yahoo! Messenger, using the manufacturer's software that came with the camera.
  • Yahoo! Messenger might have the wrong camera selected. Follow the steps below to change your camera source.
  1. Click "Messenger"
  2. Click "My Webcam.
  3. Click "Messenger" again.
  4. Select "Preferences."
  5. Click "Webcam."
  6. Click "Camera Source."
  7. Click the pull-down menu and select the camera you want to use.
  8. Click "OK."
If that doesn't work, your friend might have one of the same problems with the camera on his or her end. They should try the same steps to see if that helps.
Hopefully the info here will help get things running smoothly!
