ThinkVision L2251x Wide - Unable to activate built in camera

[ Edited ]

Hi,

I have a problem activating the buit-in camera of my screen ThinkVision L2251 xWide.

It is connected to a ThinkStation D20.

I've installed the Lenovo driver but when running the provided utility (wpcam), I have an error message stating the camera is not recognized and I have to check the driver... Webcam testing utilities say "No webcam installed" as well.

 

Configuration:

- ThinkStation D20

- ThinkVision L2551 xWide with built-in camera

- Video NVIDIA Quadro FX 1800 (Driver V6.14.11.9039)

- Windows XP 64

 

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Here i find the question with no reply. I was handed the monitor and would like to know if i can get full use out of it using the built-in camera. I am starting in the forums...

What would we do without Google? If you ended here, you may be looking for this:

look over the manual, there it will show you how to install cables. It calls for 1-VGA, 1-DP, & 1-USB ....for one monitor!!! Soon as the sub was connected it found driver, loaded - even audio. I do not have the DP hooked up, not sure what extra it will do; using VGA and USB.

 

Win 10 - 64bit

Hi

 

I don't have that monitor, but let's see what we can find...

 

Here is the support site, it has some files:

Here are some other files site:

I think you should try the Webcam driver and Environment Sensing Utilities (ESU) Software , but I can not be 100% sure.


Which Windows version are you using? Maybe if it does not work you can also search on the Windows Device Manager for the HardwareID of the webcam, so we can search which exactly model it is. I can not be sure it will run on Windows 10, but we can give it a try to search for some driver.

I found those links before I came at the same time I was in the forums. My link takes you to the manual for the monitor. As soon as I plugged in the usb the camera loaded right up and the audio. Didn't need the 'sense' tech. 

 

Win 10 - 64bit
