Question about Logitech Inc 960-000581 Logitech Webcam C260

Open Question

I loaded up the C260 webcam installation software and set up my camera. After shutting down for the night, I restarted my computer the next day and got a "black screen" that had the phrase "corrupted file/logitech...." in amongst the other computer "talk". I immediately uninstalled Logitech's webcam (and other) items. Now, my computer takes about 10 minutes just to "boot up" and when I click on a desktop item, there is about a 2 minute delay with response. What has happened? Thanks, Kathy

If you mean that it will not install at all, and mean that windows won't recognise your cam; it maybe that you have not updated windows installer 3.1 after you have done a clean install. Click on link to download, apologies if this is'nt what you mean. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=889482fc-5f56-4a38-b838-de776fd4138c&displaylang=en

SOURCE: No video when using quickcam pro 9000 on google chat (gchat)

I had this problem but I fixed it. The google chat uninstaller does not uninstall everything. Go to the hidden folder Application Data of the default or local user in the Documents and Settings folder of the C drive, you will find the plugin folder for google chat. Delete it and then reinstall the plugin and it will work.

My webcam night mode is turn off how can i turn it back on


Face Recognition Usually you'll find the webcam at the top and middle of the laptop screen. One unique feature included with the webcam on newer Toshiba laptops including the Satellite Pro, Portege and Qosmio models is facial recognition. Instead of having to type in a password when you open the laptop, you can set up the computer to recognize your face and automatically load your settings. b> Setup b> To access the face recognition feature on a Toshiba laptop, open the laptop to the registration screen and click the Face Recognition icon. Look at the circle that appears on the screen and align your face so that it fits within the circle, and then click "Next." At the next page, enter your name and password and click "OK." The next time you use the computer, click on your Face Recognition icon from the main screen and look at the webcam so it can recognize your face and load your settings. b> Night Mode b> If you're in a low-light situation you can take advantage of the webcam's Night Mode effect. To turn it on, open the Camera Assistant by clicking the Start button, and then select "All Programs."

Select the "Camera Assistant" folder and then select the "Camera Assistant" software. Once it's open, hover your mouse over the far left hand side of your laptop screen. This will cause a number of webcam icons to appear. Click the "Properties" icon, which looks like a box with a pen over the top left of the box. Click the "Night Mode" check box from the Properties window and then click "OK." b> Other Profiles b> You can also alter other effects and features of the webcam from the Camera Assistant. First open the Camera Assistant by clicking the Start button, and then select "All Programs." Select the "Camera Assistant" folder and then select the "Camera Assistant" software. Then hover your cursor on the far left of the screen until you see the webcam menu appear, and select the "Properties" icon. Then click on an individual "Profile" tab to adjust the white balance, lower or raise the brightness, or correct the colors. As you click on the adjustment, you should see the change reflected in the way the webcam is displaying on your laptop. When you've selected the settings you want, click "OK" from the Profile window.

Setting up Logitech C615 webcam


Hi bryno2087

LOGITECH C615 WEBCAM SETUP

You don't say which Operating System is installed on your computer or where you loaded or downloaded the drivers for this webcam from. I assume it was from the CD that came with the camera. If you do not have a CD or the CD is defective, you can select your Windows or Mac OSX Operating System (other Operating Systems might not be supported) and download the drivers from the Official Logitech Driver and Downloads Support Website here:

http://www.logitech.com/en-gb/435/8041?section=downloads

For some webcams, it is better to install the drivers and software first and then connect the camera afterwards.

If you have previously installed the drivers and software with the camera connected, disconnect the webcam > uninstall all components of the webcam drivers and software > restart the computer > reinstall the webcam drivers and software > restart the computer > reconnect the webcam > Computer > right click on the camera icon at the bottom of the window (scroll down if necessary)> Send To > Desktop (create shortcut) > double click on the new desktop webcam icon.


I hope this helps.

Sounds like a possible driver issue.
Go to Sony's support site and download the latest drivers for your Camera, namely the WebCam Companion software to ensure you have the proper drivers for your integrated webcam.
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGNCR420EP&SelectOS=44
A restart is usually needed after the installation.
Test the software to ensure you actually get proper video from the webcam after driver installation.
Test it out on Skype if all goes well.

I have windows vista and the c260 webcam and it will not install to my computer it says the program is not companionable with my computer?


It means that you don't have a good enough graphics card, or camera, or depending on the cameras make, computer. If you still have the receipt return the camera for a new one, but first write down your computers Ram, Processor, and Graphics Card by going to the start menu > right-click computer > properties. When you chose a new camera make sure it will match up with that same information.

My 2.0 mega pixelsgigaware webcam stopped working. Do i have to re-install that software?


That would be a good place to start.

First go into add and remove programs (if you are running XP or earler OS's) (in vista or windows 7 look for Program and Features in the control panel) then uninstall your camera.

Next unplug your camera then restart your computer. (this will clean all remaining files associated with your camera.

now go ahead and install your camera software and follow onscreen instructions.

Now if your camera does not come back to life it could mean that the camera is defective and you may need to purchase a new one.

good luck and have a great day

Logitech QuickCam Deluxe video won't work


Send thhis to him so he can check his Audio & Video settings.

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
