Many webcams have a focus adjustment somewhere on the webcam itself.Try adjusting that to correct the blurriness.

As for the black and white image, there is often software that controls the incoming picture of the webcam, and offers different settings and adjustments to "enhance" the image on whatever chat or recording program you are using. Also, some chat or recording programs offer those adjustments as well. Without knowing the make and model of the webcam and the software you are attempting to use the webcam with, I cannot get much more specific than that.

I'm assuming you are using the Webcam on a PC running Windows. While the webcam is on, look for a task-bar icon on the bottom right right of the screen (beside the clock) that says the name of the Webcam maker when you hover the mouse cursor over it. If you see one that says the maker's name, double-click it. that might open up a utility that will allow you to turn "Black & White" mode off.

Unable to capyure a video I just get a white screen

If you see a black screen where your webcam image should be, please try these troubleshooting steps:
_Make sure the webcam lens is unobstructed, adjust the lighting if necessary, then try accessing your webcam again.

_Verify that your webcam is connected properly and can function independently. Try using your webcam separately from Yahoo! Messenger, making sure to use the software that came with the camera.

The person I am viewing is in black and white

1) You are chatting to an albino nun
2) Their 'colour intensity' requires adjusting
To check yours;-
You appear to have a logitech - launch the toolbar open the 'Quick Capture' menu to start your webcam ( 2 photo frames )
Transfer to Settings menu ( 2 gearwheels)
Move the colour intensity slider to the left and you will remove the colour.

MSI starcam 370i only shows black and white

You can change your lighting to fluorescent lighting the brighter the fluorescent lights are the better your cam will show up the colours, it worked for me.

Video Downloads and Webcam do not show in color...Only Black and white

There is an option in the Webcam properties for black and white.

1. Open the Webcam program.
2. Top right corner of the window click the "down arrow" button next to the minimize and maximize button.
3. Select "Properties"
4. On the right side of the window, under the heading "Extra Control", make sure there is no check in the box.

Hope this helps.
