Laptop Camera is always blurry and red - FLEX-14IWL Laptop (ideapad)

2020-03-18, 22:05 PM

Hi,

 

I purchased my FLEX-14IWL Laptop (ideapad) in October of 2019, and I just realized that my laptop camera never was functional. The picture of me is essentially unrecognizable, and deems the function useless in video chats, an increasing important function considering the coronavirus pandemic. The entire image is red and blurry (see full image below). 

 

 

As of my knowledge, the camera never worked. I would appreciate any help in fixing this issue. I am currently in self-quarantine due to coronavirus and my mental health is tied to being able to effectively communicate with others.

 

My machine model type is 81SQ000BUS and I am running a Windows 10 64 bit operating system. 

 

Thank you and I appreciate any help.

I resolve the problem. Over the camara is like a bottom. Move it to the right and now you can see it. Its a protection bottom. 

Try it. 

Have a nice day!

There is an almost invisible switch next to the objective of the camera. Move it to the right and the camera will work. Not even Lenovo Support could help me with this simple fix. I see that a number of Flex 14 users had the same problem. May be Lenovo will put a message on Lenovo Vantage to move the switch as one of the first things to  do. Cheers, Raphael

I just bought home a brand new ideapad 5 and the camera is super blurry. The shutter is definitely open.  Any ideas how to fix this?

The camera in my Ideapad is blurry.. tried everything including opening the camera shutter, changing the lighting, reinstalling the driver, running hardware scan in lenovo vantage etc. Still the issue persists.

 

Was facing the same issue in a laptop before, and got that replaced with the one I have now..

 

Unsure if Lenovo has some batch issues. Both the laptops were manufactured around march 2020.

 

In Lenovo community, I'm seeing the same sort of complaints, but the only solution given is the camera shutter, which didn't work for me (and I've found a few more users facing the same prob)

 

Please give us a quick fix, Lenovo.
