Web Cam image very dark

Hi.  I thought I needed to buy a new webcam because the image became dark and I was unable to correct it in the settings box.  Then I went on vacation for a week, with my desktop computer, but left the webcam at home.  After my vacation, I downloaded a new version of Skype, which offered to set up my webcam.  While setting it up I discovered to my joy, that it was working well again.  Only it was slightly too bright.  I should have left well enough alone.  As soon as I tried to adjust the brightness, the picture turned upside down and it reverted to the privious darkened state.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

SOURCE: web cam picture is dark green and upside down. EZ-368.

Normal 0 Disconnect 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: How do I correct an upside-down image?

Normal 0 Try this, while the computer is running, unplug the camera from the USB Port , wait a few seconds and then plug it back in. I have fixed several cmaeras that were upside down that had the same problem by doing this.
Worth a try.
Hope this helps. Bud

My cam is to dark and pixalated how do i fix it?


From what I just read here and here of this camera, it is unable to provide good quality images. It's "inferior".
I suggest buying a new, high-end camera from Logitech.
If you just bought this camera, take it back and buy something else.

Blurry and dark picture


Is the issue occuring only with the webcam, or is the picture quality of the new monitor bad in general? I would suggest checking the monitor properties via control panel. You can also try reinstalling the webcam drivers. Try that first and let me know how it goes..

Yahoo! Messenger > Yahoo! Messenger Help > Messenger 8 > Webcam How do I correct an upside-down image? That’s no fun. The image in your Webcam Uploader window might be inverted because of your camera setting.

To change the setting:

Click Messenger and select "My Webcam."

In the window that opens, click the "File" menu,

select "Preferences," and choose "Webcam".
Click the "Camera Settings" button.

There is usually a checkbox for "Invert Image" or "Mirror Vertical."

Un-check this box if one exists.

If you can't find this checkbox, try searching the other tabs.

Focus problems


There are settings in the menu to turn on the AIAF did you buy it used? maybe the settings need to be reset. If you have the manual there is a sequence you have to do to reset the camera to default settings. One thing to note this may or maynot be yoru problem. If the lighting is low and you have the correct settings the little box in the center will turn green. If they are not the box will turn yellow and beep a few times then give you a red number to indicate how much under exposed the image will be. When you need more light you should turn the flash on this is indicated by a lightning bolt on the display. If it is on then the image display will be corrected and then get brighter showing you an estimate of what it thinks the image will look like. Hope this helps
