Hi,
About your question how to find out if your camera is turned on, I believe you can use an application like Yahoo Messenger or Skype, open any of the apps I mentioned or anything that utilizes a camera should give you information that the camera is turned Off, if the application shows you an image of you then your camera is already turned on.
Most Laptops have to use functions keys to press to turn the camera ON and OFF by holding down the FN key + Esc for ex. but this will differ from what laptop you have some may have a different function key combination from what I typed in above, on top of your keyboard are function keys F1-F12 and it will have icons each indicating what additional function each key will turn ON and OFF.
I hope this will help in finding out if your camera is turned ON or Off.
Thanks.

Hi,

Please find the below steps to access Camera Assistant Software:
a. On the taskbar double-click the Camera Assistant Software icon , or from the Windows® Start menu, point to All Programs, Camera Assistant Software, and then click Camera Assistant Software. The Camera Assistant Toolbar location briefly displays on the desktop.
b. On the Camera Assistant Toolbar, click the Start Camera button and click on the icons on the software.
NOTE: If you are not hearing the audio portion of the video you created, try the following: Verify that you do not have the audio capture muted. An X appears on the Mute button when Mute is selected.
Click the Functions button, and then click the Audio tab. In the Audio Output section, verify that the Digital Mic is selected from the Audio Device drop down list, and then click Apply. In the Audio Volume section, use the slider bar to increase the volume level. Verify that the notebook's volume is not muted. Pressing the Fn+End keys mutes the volume. Pressing the keys a second time restores the volume. Increase the notebook volume level by pressing the Fn+PgUp keys.
If the the above steps are not working, then follow the below steps:

You can reinstall the WebCam drivers from the Acer recovery management, to do so:
Start Menu> All Programs> Acer erecovery management> Restore> Restore Application & Drivers> Contents> Select Acer Crystal Eye and install it

OR

Got to http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/

Click Drivers
Select Camera (Suyin) and download it.
Once downloaded install it on your computer.

Every time I turn on the camera it sais Error 99 could anyone explain it to me .thanks chris


According to ehow:

Turn off your camera and remove the memory card, lens, battery and time/date secondary battery. The secondary battery is a small, round battery about the size of a dime found in the same compartment as the main battery. It is located in a vertical slot. Slide out the secondary battery by pressing your finger on the battery and pulling it toward you.
  • Place the body cap on your camera to keep dust out. Attach the front and back lens caps on your lens to prevent scratches and other damage.
  • Let the camera sit for 20 minutes. This will clear the camera's memory.
  • Place the date/time secondary battery and a fully charged primary battery in the camera and turn it on.
  • Press the shutter release button (the button you push to take a picture). If you are still receiving an Error 99, the problem is most likely caused by the camera body itself. The camera body must be serviced by a professional camera technician.
  • 6 Turn off the camera and insert the memory card. Turn the camera back on and press the shutter release button. If you are receiving an Error 99, the error is most likely caused by the memory card. Turn off your camera and insert a different memory card. Turn the camera back on and press the shutter release again.
  • Turn off the camera and reattach the lens. Turn on the camera and press the shutter release button. If you receive an Error 99, turn the camera off and remove the lens.
  • Turn the camera so that it is face down, and gently clean the lens contacts on the camera body with a number 2 pencil eraser or soft cloth. The lens contacts are the eight small, gold pieces on the bottom of the lens mount. Be careful not to let any of the eraser scraps fall into the camera body.
  • Turn the lens so that the side that attaches to the camera is upside down. Use the eraser or soft cloth to clean the lens contacts on the lens, being careful not to let any eraser scraps fall into the lens.
  • Reattach the lens to the camera. Turn on the camera and press the shutter release button. If you are receiving an Error 99, the error is most likely caused by the lens. Take the lens to a professional camera technician for repair.

    Camera says turn off and turn on panasonic lumix dmc-fs5


    Hi,
    While you are turning the camera on, hold the lever which you use for zooming in. The lens should extend before you get the annoying message about turning the the camera off and on. Then, gently apply pressure to the lens as if you wanted to push it back to the camera. While you are doing this, turn the camera off (lens should come back into the body of the camera). This will solve your problem.
    Thank you!
