This was the perfect answer.  Must have hit F8  by accident and shut it off.  :-) to have it back

IMHO the
Fn F8
really should be the first stop in troubleshooting this issue. Happy it fixed your issue!

Just got a refurbished w510, the camera light comes on, mic works, privacy setting works. All I get is a grey screen when testing the camera. Going to check the Fn+F8 tonight.

Re:SOLVED!! Built-in Camera not working

I have been having an ongoing issue with my Lenovo Thinkpad S1 Yoga 12 where whenever I do a video call, my camera will flicker on and off or sometimes not work at all. When I go to device manager and click on imaging devices and then "integrated camera", it says my device is working properly, even though it's not. None of the troubleshooting solutions I've found seem to be working for me, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Built-in Camera, biometrics sign-in options not working.

2020-03-16, 17:07 PM

I have thinkpad X1 extreme gen 2. None of my sign-in options are working even after latest update (as of 16 march 2020).

My integrated camera is not working even if all permission are granted to all apps.

My fingerprint, password are also not working. 

It is saying "This option is currently unavailable-click to learn more...... Something went wrong. Try again later."

This is bugging me from few weeks.

Pls HELP.

This has been bugging me intermittently for months and I applied all the suggested solutions above to no avail (F8, check device manager settings, update/reinstall Easycamera driver etc).

I believe the problem started after a Windows 10 update.

 

I read somewhere that pressing the top of the screen can help and it does in fact resolve it for my Ideapad. 

So when I get error messages like no camera detected in Skype,  I open the Camera app (it gives a similar error message) press the top of the screen, left of centre and move the laptop lid back and forwards a bit and on comes the camera. Closing Camera then allows the Skype image to also function.

 

Seems strange, but when all else fails ...

I have spent the last 48 hours going through the various fixes including doing a full reinstall of the laptop. None of it fixed it. Its a hardware issue. The lenovo guy told me it will cost me £100 cos I'm out of warranty. They fixed something in my hardware 9months ago and I'm pretty sure I've only just spotted the issue. His response was "Unlucky".

My advice. If having this issue return the laptop now and get a different make. the hardware is obviously not built to last and they just want you to keep paying for hardware fixes.
