I have a sony vaio with built in web cam and windows 7 but i cant use the web cam . why is that?


Are you using the Sony Webcam companion? If not ou can download the application from Sony Vaio website. ( Sony Web Cam Companion ). If you are trying to use skype or any other video messaging software: Try to check if there are other video chat application running in the background of your computer. Open the system configuration utility (Windows key + R > msconfig ) then go to the Startup Tab. Uncheck all application that is related to video chat and leave the preferred video chat software active (checked). Restart the computer and viola! You can now use your webcam for video chat.

Webcamera doesn't work


1. Check if Imaging Devices is listed in device manager.
2. Uninstall and reinstall the webcam companion software.

Use the Arcsoft Webcam Companion Software to use the camera to capture videos and pics. Click on start and type Webcam Companion in the search bar and press the enter key.
This will open the webcam companion software, then click on the capture option to use the camera. If you want to use the camera with any messaging software such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger etc, it is required to close the Webcam Companion Software or any other web messenger software.

The camera can be used with a single application at one time.

I can't activate my laptop's webcam. the model is VGN-FW vaio


1. Verify if the webcam drivers and software is installed in the computer.
The WebCam Companion Software contains teh drivers for the camera.
2. If the WebCam Companion Software is available and there is an error message like, no camera detected or camera in use. Then, ensure to first singout from any third party messenger software such as Skype/Yahoo messenger and exit the messenger. Ensure the messenger is not running in the background and you have successfully quit and exit the software after logout.
After that, use the WebCam Companion Software to make the camera working.
3. If the issue persists, check if Imaging Devices is listed and has the Sony Visual Communications Camera driver installed under device manager in the computer.
4. Press the Windows logo key +R key together to access the RUN window and type the command "devmgmt.msc" without the quotes, press the enter key.
5. In device manager locate Imaging Devices. If not present, reinstall the WebCam Companion Software, Sony Firmware extension parser device driver, Intel Chipset Driver and Sony Shared Library.

How to activate the webcam


Easiest way to activate the webcam I've found, is not to try hunting for the driver, etc... it's usually pre-installed for laptops or netbooks with built-in cameras, best way is to download applications like Skype with video chat, install the software, and then test using Skype. That usually works.

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.

Skype can't detect my webcam - Laptop model sony vaio vgn-ns140e - have been using it without problem for more than two years. Imaging device is missing in device manager. Please help.


Hi,

If the imaging device is missing in the device manager, it is generally considered to be an hardware related issue. But, there are chances even in this situation the camera has worked after performing some troubleshooting steps:

Try opening the preinstalled ArcSoft WebCam Companion Software in the computer and check if there also you are getting the message, " Camera device not found".

If so then the issue may be resolved by reinstalling the Camera driver. In your case the computer uses inbox driver shipped with the OS. But, as it is Sony try reinstall the original ArcSoft WebCam Companion® Software from the esupport website.

If that also doesn't work, download and install the Camera driver:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNNS140ES&upd_id=4257&os_id=7

While installing the above driver, the computer may prompt an error this update is not for your computer model.

In that case, extract the setup file of the above driver using the Universal Extractor and then run teh setup, this usually works!!!!.

Download the Universal Extractor from the link below:

I have sony vaio vgn-nw150j. my webcam stopped working. it always shows black screen.but when some bright light falls on it sometimes it show some light.it works like it has gone in night mode. i updated...


I had the same problem with my VAIO E series motion eye webcam . I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers from device manager, but didnt do any good.Sometimes the device didnt even show up. So finally I uninstalled the driver and installed the win xp driver from the sony vaio support page even though I had Win 7. Now under Imaging devices in Device manager it shows 'Sony Visual Communication camera' but it works perfectly fine.

Dont uninstall the webcam companion just yet.Might be hard to get it back.

Try doing this and see if it works with webcam companion. or else you can try other free webcam softwares like ManyCam.

HP Webcam Deluxe KQ246AA Not working correctly in XP


No solution, but I have precisely the same issue. I've reinstalled and removed ArcSoft many times, being careful to clean registries, etc but to no avail. The camera actually worked with Skype initially (plug and play), UNTIL I installed ArcSoft. So I think that ArcSoft "stepped" on a driver somewhere that I can't detect or repair. (I'm using "Driver Detective" but so far it hasn't helped) Will update if I find a fix.
