Lenovo Y70-70 camera is not working

Hi,

 

I own a company called "Cooper Webdesign", where I develop Drupal CMS solutions for private and business companies.

 

I use the Y70-70 as a development-machine to test features I develop for my customers.

 

In this case I am developing a feature where a company will have a live-stream connection through a page

 

But the driver for the camera for Windows 10, 64-bit doesnt work. Does anyone have a solution for this?

 

Best regards,

Cooper Webdesign

Re: Lenovo Y70-70 camera is not working

Hi there, Cooper-

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

Can you try the following?

  1. Uninstall the Camera Driver from the Control Panel (icon views) > Programs and Features and reboot.
  2. Re-install the Camera Driver from the D:\Drivers folder or from the Y70-70 Drivers Page and reboot.
  3. Close all applications that uses the Camera (e.g., Skype) and go to http://www.testmycam.netto test the webcam and check if the Camera lights up.

You cannot install only the camera driver because there are decencies between other drivers and issue continues to be the same. Even the driver version doesn't change.

 

Also install the chipset drivers.

 

Update us how it goes.

No, it didnt work. I have updated the bios and all the drivers. When trying to install the camera driver, I get an error "no camera is found"?

Open the Windows start menu, and type ‘Lenovo’ until ‘Lenovo Settings ‘appears and open it (if you do not have Lenovo Settings installed you can find it on the Windows App Store).

 

Expand the window so that the top icons are displayed and click on ‘CAMERA’ at the top of the window.

 

Scroll to the bottom of the settings page, under ‘PRIVACY MODE’ change ‘Turn Privacy Mode’ to ‘Off’.

I have the app installed, but I can not choose "camera" anywhere. I have also checked that no drivers are missing. 

 

Its like the camera it self are not registered at all in Windows 10. It was the same problem in Windows 8 and 8.1

Re: Lenovo Y70-70 camera is not working

Check if Integrated camera is enabled in BIOS, for that you have to enter the BIOS by tapping F1 key after switching ON the system, go to security menu and in that I/O port access – Integrated camera enable.

 

Update us how it goes.

I have the latest version already v3.03, and there are no where to choose "integrated camera" in the BIOS. I also use F2 to go to setup, not F1.
