Actually this is the codec pack problem.
the codec were trying to open the webcam.
If you installed k-lite codec pack or ffdshow codec, you might can easily solve this.

to fix the k-lite codec pack from opening your webcam:
(for windows xp only)
start > run :
type : rundll32.exe "C:\Program Files\K-Lite Codec pack\ffdshow\",configure
go to directshow control, then you will see 'dont use ffdshow in:' with box contains application name with extension. so just add the application file name with extension.
(without quote at the end)
by adding the explorer.exe usually can fix the viewing webcam in my computer.

for other codec, please locate the '' file and just change the directory above without changing ',configure' parameters and 'rundll32.exe'.

thanks for reading!!

    actually, it is only if you have conflict in ffdshow which is usually installed together with popular codec pack named klite codec pack...
    if u dont have it, maybe theres a driver problem or compatibility problem... to fix compatibility problem, u need to install 3rd party webcam software called ManyCam.

Actually it can take be one of two problems that K-Lite codec packs creates.

The first is the above and can be solved by running the K-Lite Mega Codec pack tweak tool - manage installed codecs and filters.

Once it has opened in "disable the following active filters" select ffdshow to disable it in the first screen.

The second problem is with a black screen even once the above has been completed - To sort this proceed to the next screen on the tweak tool - select VFW & ACM codecs that belong to windows - disable the microsoft h.261 filter and that should sort the black screen problem.

It would help if the message was there but will assume it said, if your are connected. Anyway here is the sequence of events I would suggest (assuming you have checked all connections).

First, if you can still see yourself but not take a picture, it is very likely your software became corrupted (or something else did in Windows - again assuming that is your OS). Try reinstalling your software.

Next....Make sure under device manager there are no exclamation marks....if there are reinstall the drivers.

If these do not work then uninstall your software, including deleting any application folders under program files (but not your pictures) and run scandisk in thorough mode. Then download Ccleaner and clean your registry. The try reinstalling.

If that does not work you more than likely have an operating system problem.....try to restore, repair, and then (last resort) reinstall (which also means you may have to reinstall all your application software). One of the above should solve the problem. Suggest you follow the sequence outlined. Tango.

Preview Picture - Locked Up

Eventually, the camera's battery will die. I suggest removing the battery and then wait for 30 seconds and put it back in. This should solve the problem.
