Logitechquick cam - can't see my mother


Hi,

from the logitech video instructions it says:
Going full screen is easy. When you're on a video call, just click the icon (on the left corner) to enlarge your video to full screen.
Just click on the video or press ESC to return to normal video size.
Picture-in-picture allows you to see what others see. Click on the PIP icon to turn it on.

If this is not working as it is the latest XP driver needs to be downloaded from the logitech web site.

Black screen


The problem sounds like it is not with the hardware or software - You are able to take pictures indicating the device is on and working.

The problem appears to be with the associated programmes such as Skype, Yahoo. You need to select on of the video chat programmes and select the webcam you choose to work with it.

In any of the video chat you will find it is in options/ settings/ video
