Lenovo Yoga 500 Camera not working

The camera has been working with Skype.  Now not working and camera icon on Skype screen has line across it showing camera not working/available.  


In Device Manager I have checked that the device is available (Lenovo EasyCamera).  I have checked privacy settings and camera is on.  I have downloaded an updated driver. The 'general' tab states 'This device is working properly'.


My operating system is Windows 10. 


Thank you SEJoseph - I have checked in Lenovo Settings and the camera icon has a slash through it.  I assume that means it is disabled.  If so how can I enable it?


Problem solved - in Lenovo Settings - camera - set privacy to 'off'.  Camera now works with Skype.

Dear DIOM,


Welcome in lenovo community,


Please try to open Lenovo settings,


You can use the search bar next to the windows key >> Type lenovo settings,


After that check if the webcam is enabled or disabled.






What's DOS?

Re: Lenovo Yoga 500 Camera not working

Hi guys,


My camera is not displayed or there is no icon for camera shown in my Device Manager or in my PC Lenovo Settings. Does this mean that the problem is with the hardware and maybe the wires of my camera? I have been using my yoga 500 for 2 months only..
