Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web do this.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Laptop restarts after shutdown


This sounds like the On/Off program in the "Programs and Features" section of the computer. On newer computers, there is a feature called "On/Off", and what this does is it keeps power going to the USB ports on the computer so you can charge things and keep things plugged in. Sometimes, if you have certain things plugged into a USB port, and you shut down your computer, the USB ports will "wake" your computer up and turn it back on. Simple things like a wireless mouse will cause this, I know because I use a Logitech Trackball mouse and it's wireless. I had the same issue, and found out that simply flipping the switch on the mouse itself(turning it off), solved my problem. I would recommend either shutting the external devices off when you shut down, or just completely unplug everything from the USB ports(minus the keyboard).

My powered USB port on my Dell Latitude D410 shorted out. Can this be repaired/replaced?


The USB plug will need to be removed from the computer, if luck is with you the computer will work, if no part is available, use a none powered USB hub on a spare port if available to run your applications.

A bluescreen error is rarely a good sign, but sometimes it's fixable. Have you tried plugging the webcam into a different USB port? Also have you tried unplugging some unnecessary USB devices and then using the webcam? You may be draining too much power from the PSU with USB devices and the PC shuts down to prevent damage. Have you been able to test on a different computer to see if the problems happens there as well?

I open my webcam it,s start normal after i chat get dark , hence i shut down it, work again after 20 minits or 30 mnints dark again , so please what can i do


If you are working on a laptop - check the power setting in the control panel. It may be shutting down peripherals such as USB ports when it thinks you have not been there for a while.

Change the power settings to not shut anything down when you are plugged in.

Pc shuts down after I turn on cam and I don't know why. how can I fix it?


Check the Event Viewer if there is any Error Log related with this problem. Check the USB port and also you probably might need to re-install the Webcam again.

Seagate 1.5 TB Free Agent will not turn off


Definitely, You must turn off the External Hard drive when it is not in use, because as it is external and it comes with an external power supply,the power supply will not cut-off automatically when the computer is turned off.This is not the case for Internal hard drives that are built-in in the computers, their power supply will cut off automatically when the computer is shut down. You can turn ON the external HDD when ever you need, that is even when u are working with the computer and if you doesnt need the hard drive then you can left it OFF....When ever you need the hard drive, you can just turn ON...and dont unplug and plug the USB wire frequently, let it be plugged in the computer. Whenever there is a need unplug and take it away. Because if you unplug and plug it back many times, then the usb port may become wide, which results in frequent disconnection of the device that is connected to that particular usb port...
Guess it is useful....

VX-1000 problems


Start- right click my computer - properties - hardware - device manager. Click on the + signs to expand links, find your camera, is there any question or exclamation marks showing, is so, right click & see what it says.
If nothing shows up as wrong, un-install your cam in device manager, restart your computer,(cam unplugged) when up & running, plug your cam back in & system will see it as new device & install it.
Hope this helps your issue.
Have a nice day.

Logitech Quickcam Fusion!


Instead of plugging the webcam in after the computer is running, I plugged in while it was shut down. The first time the computer booted with the webcam attached it took approximatly 2 minutes longer to boot, but every boot after has been as fast as ever. Webcam works great now!
