Camera freezes and then comes back repeatedly | Lenovo T460P

2020-08-26, 15:24 PM

Hello

My laptop's camera stopped working properly - when I turn the camera app on the camera works for a couple of seconds, then stops (even the light shuts down) then after a couple of seconds works again.

This happened without any noticeable change to my setup.

I'm running windows 10, tried to update both Lenovo vantage and the windows, nothing solved this.

How can I fix my camera?

I'm with you... coworker has exactly the same issue with her T460p. We did all Windows, browsers and ThinkVantage updates, but no success so far.

I might have accidentally found a 'solution', I have no idea why it works, try it at your own risk.

Go to device manager > Cameras > right click on "Integrated Camera" > Uninstall device

This worked in my case too! I've just uninstalled the device as you said and then scanned system for new devices - camera got reinstalled and it works now. 

 

Thanks a lot! :)
