Re: SOLVED!! Built-in Camera not working

Webcam is not detected or unable to turn on the camera. Before going to the below troubleshooting flow, please give a quick check. Try different apps to identify whether it is a hardware problem. Different apps include Youcam, Skype, Line, Facebook messenger, etc.

The issue may be caused by:

  • Camera driver is out of date or not installed correctly
  • Camera was disabled in Device Manager
  • Camera was set off under Privacy or Lenovo Settings
  • Hardware is broken

Confirm webcam is on under Privacy

  1. In Windows 8/8.1, open Charms Bar via the desktop and click on Settings option. Click on PC info or Change PC settings -> Privacy -> Webcam. Slide on the webcam or configure to Let these apps use my webcam.
  2. In Windows 10, open Settings -> Privacy -> Webcam. Slide on the webcam or configure to Let these apps use my webcam.

For models with Lenovo Settings installed, open Lenovo Settings and ensure camera is on

Check the camera is recognized correctly in Device Manager

  1. Open Device Manager. Navigate to Imaging devices.
  2. If there is no imaging devices, it indicates no camera modem configured or camera hardware failure. Suggest to contact Lenovo local service provider for more help.
  3. A yellow exclamation means indicates camera driver not installed properly or is out of date. You can right-click and select Uninstall. Then right-click Imaging devices and select Scan for hardware change.
  4. If the yellow exclamation mark still exists, go to https://support.lenovo.com to search your product name and find the responding camera driver to install and update. For certain model, there is no seperate camera driver, instead you need to install Windows inbox driver.)

Check in Device Manager if camera was disabled

  • Under Imaging device, one of these two options Lenovo Easycamera or Integrated camera will show up. If a down arrow shown, it indicates camera device was disabled. Right-click Lenovo EasyCamera or Integrated camera to select Enable.

Hardware failure is of high possibility. Contact Lenovo local service center

Re: SOLVED!! Built-in Camera not working

Thank you for taking the trouble to respnd. Solution was easier than expected. Turning off and on the application itself (and not just the laptop itself) made all the difference. 

 

Thank you again.

Re: SOLVED!! Built-in Camera not working

Hi there,
I've solved the problem installing Lenovo Setting on my laptop but unfortunately, every time I shut down the laptop and on again I need to go to Lenovo Setting and switch on the privacy setting and off again, and then the webcam works. Anyone knows why?
Thanks in advance.

Re: SOLVED!! Built-in Camera not working

Here is How to disable inbuilt webcam camera for Windows 10

 

Use Windows +R shortcut keys to open the Run command box or manually open it from the Start menu.

 

Type in ‘devmgmt.msc’ in Run and press the Enter key.

 

In the Device Manager, select ‘Imaging devices’ from the given list.

 

Under Imaging Devices, right click the ‘Integrated Camera’ option and click on Disable. You will get a message saying ‘Disabling this device will cause it to stop functioning. Do you really want to disable it?” Clicking on Yes will disable the camera.

 

If the camera option does not say Integrated Camera, don’t get confused, the name of your webcam will be displayed in that space.

Re: SOLVED!! Built-in Camera not working

This was the easiest and most straightforward solutions, after updating my firewall on my thinkpad my camera stopped working and I sent it in twice. Lenovo Tech support needs to be clued on this solution!

Re: SOLVED!! Built-in Camera not working

one can never be absolutely certain, however,

 

the Fn F8 key, (the one the camera crossed out) was my problem--I think
pressed F8 a viola, camera and video works.

 

The issue may be caused by:

  • Camera driver is out of date or not installed correctly
  • Camera was disabled in Device Manager
  • Camera was set off under Privacy or Lenovo Settings
  • Hardware is broken

I did the registry fix first, so YMMV
