Ok, I have a Y550, and lately when I go to start EasyCapture or more commonly Skype, the camera doesn't turn on (no white LED next to it). I go to EasyCapture to see if that works, and then settings, and the only option I have for which camera is UScreenCapture, or None. Do I just need to update the driver, or is something actually wrong?
Thanks for any help.

I have an ideapad y550 and I have a serious problem with its webcam.
about two months after I bought it the camera didn't turn on anymore , so I went to the guarantee and got it fixed ( I dont know whether they changed it or fixed it )
now ( about a month after fixing it ) it doesnt turn on again
And now the guarantee period is over and I dont know if i fix it again its gonna work or what ?!
what should I do ?!

i bought my new Lenovo B560 a few days ago and installed Win7. I got a driver Cd where I could find most of the drivers.
But when I try to install the webcam driver it says: "No matched device driver".
I tried to get new drivers (also for Vista and XP) from the internet but always the same. When open programs like Skype there is no Webcam detected. Or do I have to activate it somehow?

nope, i just moved the thread due to similar issue.
do you see camera icon when you press fn + esc?
re-installing power management may fix your issue.
edit: test your camera. do you see yourself?
