Thinkpad T540 (win8) Integrated Camera no longer works

Hi guys,

 

I got my Thinkpad T540 several month ago and found the integrated camera did not work and I brought to a warranty center. They came up with a cause of virus instead of hardware problem, even if they stated they changed a new camera for me. After that in a couple of weeks, the camera seems to be ok, at least I used it for twice. However, recently, it stopped working again. I have no idea what's going on. It should not be a virus, as I installed anti-virus software and firewall and scanned my computer but nothing warnned.

 

Dose anyone have solution?

Here is what I did to fix this for my machine.  I had the same symptoms.

 

Install most current "lenovo settings" software lenovo.PNG

After install you need to reboot your machine:

 

After reboot please open Lenovo settings:Capture.PNG

Then click on Camera:

 

Next click on "NORMAL"  *NOTE: BY DEFAULT SOMETHING SETS THE CAMERA TO PRIVATE.  camera.PNG

 

Once I clicked on "NORMAL" the camera started working.normal.PNG

 

Please let me know if this helps.

 

Thanks
