Question about Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 Webcam

1 Answer

Can only get black and white

For some reason, the picture (video as well as still pics) is black and white only. I have tried all the settings, using the latest software. Win XP Pro. I bought this cam a couple of years ago (or 3?) and I remember then setting the s/ware to black and white. BUT that was on a different computer. Is there such a thing as a factory reset on these things?

1. Download and run a utility from Microsoft called AmCap. 2. Run it and select your webcam from the Devices menu. Verify the webcam output is visible. 3. Go the the Options menu and select Video Capture Filter. 4. Make sure that the Color Enable checkbox is checked, and the Saturation slider is in the middle. Or just click on Restore defaults. Hope that helps.

When using our Sony Bravia to display pictures from an Asus Revo 70 nettop via HDMI, the picture often goes into reverse video - any idea what might be wrong, please ?

There is no obvious answer. Do you mean it goes 'negative' i.e blacks are white and vice versa?
It could be any number of reasons ranging from faulty graphics adapter in the pc, dodgy hdmi cable, incorrectly set up laptop or a video driver update required etc.
Any chance you could try it with a combination of a different tv set, a different hdmi cable to see if it narrows it down. Try changing the nettop output settings to different resolution. Is the resolution set correctly?
You are going to need to narrow it down. Also open the graphics control panel and check the settings.

Lg 32lc2r, only showing picture in black and white

Make sure that the color control level is set to the default or 50% to start with. This should be in the Video menu.

The colour for the tuner and for the encoded base-band video uses a circuit area called the colour demodulator. It is possible that this cirucuit area has failed and needs servicing.

Time for new flash??

the camera's light sensor or metering system, for correct flash exposure is no longer working, that's why your shots is either black or white (overexposed or underexposed) the flash firing has loose its control because of the defective sensor, it now only depends on the charge current of the flash capacitor. If you'll wait longer time the charge is maximum picture result will be overexposed(white), and vice versa, less charge, dark result, have the flash assy replaced. Daylight no problem, it doesnt use the flash circuitry, thanks
