Re: webcam not working?

hi gokuvegita,

 

When you get the "Webcam is unusable" error, can you try to:

-  Open Device Manager > imaging devices and see if. have built-in camera detected. If it's there uninstall it and reboot to refresh the driver. 

 

Alternatively, try to:

1. Run Windows update to get the latest patch and bug fixes to your OS

2. Uninstall the Camera Driver from the Control Panel and re-install the driver below:

 

Camera Driver (AVC, Liteon, Bison, Chicony) for 64-bit Windows
Windows 8 64Bit

cam115w8.exe
26.6MB

 

Camera Driver (AVC, Bison, Chicony, Liteon)
Windows 7 32/64Bit

cam118w7.exe
26.6MB

 

3. If the webcam is still not detected, apply this USB binary fix and reboot:

If problem persist, the camera is probably not getting detected properly or is already defective. Try to perform a factory reset using the OneKey Recovery button to isolate if the issue is OS level.

 

 

Regards
