Many laptop computers come equipped with a small web camera assembly mounted above the LCD screen. Like any other camera, these webcams use a lens to take pictures. Over time, it is possible for this lens to become dirty, especially if you have touched it a few times. You can quickly clean the lens and get the unit back to taking crisp pictures.
1.Take a microfiber cloth and gently press it to the lens of your laptop's web camera.
2.Gently rub the lens of the web camera with the microfiber cloth. Be sure that you cover the entire surface of the web camera's lens.
3.Open your web camera program when you are finished and take a picture to test the quality of the webcam. If it is still blurry, close the program and repeat steps 1 and 2 until the web camera is no longer blurry.
Could be that the lens cover doesn't open fully or that perhaps there is a smudge on the bottom part of the lens. Maybe a water drop. IF the front optics are dirty, use an optical-quality lens cleaning solution and cloth (if you have glasses, the lens cloth that came with your glasses). Apply a very small amount of cleaner to the cloth and gently clean the lens.
If the lens cover doesn't open, could be a grain of sand. The only thing to do is to gently move the lens cover in and out & hope the sand works its way out.
I did the same thing to my Photosmart E327 and upon inspection, I found that the len had fallen out. I could not find it so I am trying to find how to get it replaced. The blurry picture began for me after the drop. Suggest that you check to see if your len has become dislodged, or fallen out as mine did.
