T520 Windows 10 Camera not working

2018-04-22, 13:39 PM

I have a Thinkpad T520 running windows 10. Since I installed the latest version of SKYPE from Microsoft it does not recognize the integrated camera. It says no device found. The Windows Camera app also does not recognize the camera. The camera works when using Windows Live Movie Maker.

 

I checked the Lenovo support website for drivers. This model only seems to have camera drivers for Windows 7, Vista and XP. Although I do see Windows 10 drivers for the card reader which is displayed on the same page.

 

This is a problem because I cant go back to the old version of SKYPE which was working.

 

Please help.

Look in the Device Manager and see if there are problem devices.  See if something is there under Imaging Devices.

Thanks for responding. There are no errors with the imaging device in device manager. As I said before, the camera works when I use Microsoft Live Movie Maker.

Bump - my integrated camera used to work after updating the OS to Windows 10. 

 

The camera started bugging out a week ago by converting the image to a grayed out false color version of the image. 

 

I fixed it by updating the driver using the Lenovo integrated camera driver.

Today, the camera is recognized in device manager but the camera will not capture the image and the indicator light does not come on.

I have the same issue.  I tried downloading the driver you mentioned but after running install, the issue still persists.  I am unable to see the camera at all in device manager.
