    I have a yellow line down the center of receiving video. Colors in receiving video are also off. I have the latest version of Skype. I am using XP OS with all the patches. The computer has a intel dual core. The sending video is fine.

    Ihave the same problem and it truly interferes with the visual aspect of seeing my family long distance. If anyone knows the answer to this annoying yellow stripe, please enlighten me.



    Thank you............Patricia

I found this solution in http://forum.skype.com/index.php?showtopic=105497 - it worked for me.

1 - click "start" and choose the option to "run";
2 - type "dxdiag" and confirm in OK;
3 - a screen will appear with "DirectX Diagnostic Tool";
4 - chooses the "display" tab;
5 - disable the options "DirectDraw Acceleration" and "Direct3D Acceleration"

Re solution #4. Disabled only "Direct3D Acceleration". The yellow line has gone. With both disabled the picture is pixelated.
Thanx James T.

I have had the same as solution #6 however, sometimes it works and other times it does not!! if it does not, then i have to live with it. I went to download another driver too but it seemed to be a really big pain and now im living with it. sometimes works and others not. It also seems to be worse with the latest version of skype. I shouldn'[t have installed the newest version. I had better luck with older version but I do not know how to get it back!!!

    UPDATE FOR SOLUTION #8: I FOUND THE SITE :
    http://www.oldapps.com/skype.php?old_sky...
    Uninstalled Version 4.1.0.166 and downloaded and uinstalled Version 4.0.0.226 which I originally had. I corresponded with Skype and they said the new version 4.1 would solve the problem. It did not. As i said above, it worked sometime and others it didn't. Now with 4.0.0.226 it can be fixed with lowering the acelleration like it states in Solution #6.
    Good Luck!!!!

Do i have to pay a fee before i can talk to friends by video webcam??? if not how do i get on line??


Hello,
You dont have to pay any fees for using your webcam in skype. Your system would have already configured your webcam with skype. So during the call there will be a video button which you have to click to start your video.
If your webcam is not detected, go to video settings and set your webcam using the dropdown listbox in video settings.

Good luck,

Racieveing a bad image during the video call on Skype


Send this to them so they can properly setup the Audio & Video.
Normal 0 See section A. Skype in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
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

Picture Greatly distorted all of a sudden by many yellow lines


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs. To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as Tv Repair Kits to get a repair kit with instructions. Here is there link.

They have put together complete kits for most models that include the parts, step by step photo instructions, repair assistance, etc.
