Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

Acer 5610 orbicam

My orbicam has stopped working. I can bring the orbicam menue up when I click the icon. But when I try to click to camera off the icon, it flashes up then dissappears in a split second. Also, there is no green light coming on the camera. I have checked the drivers are installed correctly - which they are. Is there something I am missing???

It seems to be an inherrent fault with this model, this sometimes works though.

swivel the camera around to face the rear of the notebook (making sure you turn it the right way) and turn it back again, now try to run the camera again, keep clicking the icon to start the cam and eventually it comes on.

Acer orbicam not working


Might be hardware problem. So better send it to service center. Or you can try to take out the camera, remove the camera cable and plug it in back. I think this model got design issue for the camera.

Acer Orbicam does not work anymore


Sounds like a driver went astray.
Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
