Sideways Webcam image

I have a new T420 with built-in webcam.


My problem is that the image from my webcam is always sideways. For example,  this happens when I press Fn+F6 to bring up Lenovo's Communications Utility, which displays the image from the webcam and lets me control its settings.


The  "Advanced Camera Settings" that Lenovo provides in their Communications Utility lets me "Flip" or "Mirror"  the image that I am seeing, but does not give me the option of 90 degree rotation, which is what I need to do to solve the sideways problem.


Can anyone tell me if there is something I can do to work around this, or if instead it is a software/driver problem of some kind, or instead if maybe the camera was physically installed incorrectly in my T420?

Re: Sideways Webcam image

I think the camera was installed onto the camera/mic PCB incorrectly, you'll need to have it serviced.
