problem with webcam

2008-10-05, 16:48 PM

hello folks!

i got my ideapad y510 about a month back and no doubt, it's a wonderful machine. i have had no issues with it- till now.

i recently tried to setup the camera to use with as a webcam with yahoo messenger. but the messenger application always gives me a message: webcam not connected and i can't make it work anyway. i tried different version of yahoo messenger and i even uninstalled the webcam driver (via device manager) and reinstalled the latest drivers from the lenovo support site. but the camera still refuses to work as a webcam.

i would appreciate any help very much. please guide me how to setup the camera to be used as a webcam.

 

Solved! See the solution

hello!
thanx for the solution, but for me something different worked and i stumbled upon it just by chance- i went to the shuttle center and there i reset all the settings to default in the tv tuner card settings.

it beats me how it worked but it worked and now the webcam works like a charm.

cheers!!!

I have the same issue and still have not been able to resolve the issue of Yahoo Messenger not detecting the integrated camera.  I have tried Fun + Esc and it does not work.  What was the solution you found?

 

Any Help you can provide is much appreciated.

 

Thank you.
