I would really appreciate anyones help in this one. I've set up the camera to be webcam as well as installing the drivers for it.
When I go to MSN Messenger to set up the webcam, I can see the image perfectly well. However, when I actually go to use it within MSN messenger, the image goes virtually black... it shows a very dark green or red image when I point it to a bright light source - like the laptop screen.
This is baffling as it only does this when someone accepts my webcam send request. The viewscreen shows the same image
Has anyone come across the same problem and can anyone help?

When I was using a video camera as a web cam using Netmeeting, I found out a few things which may help. Once the connection is made, the settings from the other end play a part in the reproduction at your end.
I.E. the image you are seeing at your end once connected to someone is actually their image, not yours. So what is really wrong is that their image is not appearing on your screan. Also, the size that they have selected controls the size of your displayed image etc.
Have you tried connecting to other people or only one. The problem may be at the other end.

have you tried changing the camera's settings back to default?
in the camera's menu, find 'reset settings' or 'factory settings' or something like that to reset the camera settings.. you might have messed with some settings, otherwise it may be hardware failure, may be the LCD of your camera.. hope not so.. lol
1.first switch off the camera 2.then take out the battery 3.clean the inside with a dry and clean cloth 4.again switch on the battery 5.try to select the white balance option again 6.if not,do the process again it will surely work
Not really, it sounds like the lens has been bumped while it was extended. Unfortunately, the "buzz" you hear is the gears stripping one another. The only fix is to have the lens assembly replaced, which usually costs upwards of $200. I see this problem at least 3 times a week in my shop.
if you dont have a codex on your computer (if you're using windows media player) you wont be able to play your videos because this is a requirement for most of the newer pentax.
read your manual for more details
Check the settings and be sure you have sufficient power.
If you want to test the camera for defaults, remove the batter from the camera for a day or so, then replace it. This will set its defaults. If the flash continues to not work, then I suggest calling Pentax and having it serviced.
