New Yoga C930 camera not found

I just purchased a new Yoga C930 with an integrated camera.  I have changed all the settings I can think of to activate the camera to no avail. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and still I cannot use the camera. Any suggestions?

I had the same problem. Check the F8 button. It turns the camera on and off

The actual problem ended up being the extremely tiny slide bar at the top of the screen was in OFF mode. Once I slide it to ON mode, the camera worked fine.

Re: New Yoga C930 camera not found

I just bought a yoga c930 this week and I am having the same issue, i have been on the help site with microsoft and they can't figure it out and I found this. What screen did you find the small slide bar? I have looked after reading your post but not sure exactly where to look

THanks

It's a slide bar that's located right above the camera. It physically blocks the camera so hackers cannot spy on you.

Just use your thumb to glide across the top of your computer.  In the middle, you will feel some bumps.  that's the slider bar cover to the camera.

So Funny. This is the right solution for my 930. You can barely see the slider but right above the camera is a slider and you turn it to the left and your camera will work when you go to skype or somthing...

Re: New Yoga C930 camera not found

Hi, similar issue here. However, I knew there was a security cover/slider for the camera. When I use Skype or the Windows camera app I see a grey box with a picture of a camera with a line through it. I do see a small LED light next to the camera come on. That's a good sign but still cannot see myself. The F8 key hasn't helped in this case.

 

Any ideas?

Thank you! That hung me up for an embarrassingly long time. Smiley Sad I needed a flashlight to see that slider.
