Odd colors last week I downloaded an update for my webcam and now the colors are not working properly. I tried adjusting some settings and nothing has seemed to work. Has anyone else encountered this error before and if so how can I fix it? Thanks in advance.

How do get the web cam to work on my e525 with windows 7


Probably all it needs is the proper driver. You should have gotten several disks with the laptop containing OS, drivers, etc. If not, go to the Acer's site and download the proper drivers and install them. They will have installation instructions posted or for download. Unfortunately, I can't tell you who manufactured the webcam in your PC. Should be available on Acer's website.

I do find it odd that Win 7 doesn't have the drivers already installed tho. Most major webcams are covered, especially if you bought the laptop with Win 7 installed.

Can also try going to device manager and uninstalling the webcam, then reboot. Windows will reinstall the webcam. Try updating the driver from device manager also.

Lighting
Lighting is a common cause of strange webcam colors. When your webcam does not have enough light, it compensates by adjusting settings internally. The adjustments can result in color shifts that are not true to life. Bright, diffuse lighting reduces the workload on your webcam and allows it to display colors as they are. The light source should be behind the computer and pointed at your face to reduce shadowing and provide an even light. Avoid light sources behind you, as they can cause extreme contrast between your face and the light. b> Webcam Settings b> Most webcams come equipped with customization settings that allow you to adjust the display. Changing the settings while watching a preview webcam image can help you fix odd colors on the display. The location of the video settings varies, but is often located in the Preferences, Settings, Configure or Video menus. Adjust the tint, contrast and brightness settings until the image shifts to a normal color scheme. Webcam Drivers b> Webcam drivers allow the camera to function properly. When your drivers are corrupt or out of date, they can affect even the most basic display abilities. Webcam manufacturers publish the most recent driver downloads on their websites, usually on the individual product page, along with instructions for installation. To allow your computer to communicate with the webcam and use the drivers, run a software update to install any recent versions. b> Special Effects b> Some webcams come with built-in special effects that allow you to customize the appearance of the video stream. If an effect was enabled during the last session, it may stay on when the camera is turned on again. Turning the effects off will usually resolve the problem. The location of video effect settings varies by webcam model and manufacturer. Logitech Video Effects are located using the mask button in the QuickCam menu.

I dont know how to adjust the color setting of my web cam..its already color green..i already adjust the color but still it didnt work...i tried the advance setting but it didnt work too.


Webcams do not have a perfect system just as the regular cameras as the resolution is also low. So you can make some adjustments with the corrrect lighting as luminance is important, being low can make it look green.

Windows Live Messenger New Version makes video "grainy"


Did you check your webcam settings? Could be that the updated version cause the settings to be reset. In any case try to make sure that the sharpness and low light adjusting are set to automatic.
