Lenovo Ideapad 310 Webcam is not working

Q: Lenovo Ideapad 310 Webcam is not working

Hello, On Windows 10. Just bought this laptop couple weeks ago. Decided to try and skype for the first time. Camera didnt turn on. Camera doesnt show up in the Lenovo Settings App. In Device Manager, Easy Camera was actually hidden. Had to unhide it from the View menu. Message in the device is: Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer. I have searched the forums and saw the post where simply activating using the F8 hotkey works for someone. It does NOT work for me. Any advice?? Thanks

Preferred Solution: Lenovo Ideapad 310 Webcam is not working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I recently bought a Lenovo Ideapad S300 running Windows 8 and initially had difficulty in getting it to update but, with help from several websites, managed to resolve this problem. However, I never managed to get the integrated webcam to work. The application would launch but the camera screen is blank. Device Manager advises that the device is working properly and the drivers are up-to-date. Incidently, this particular notebook does not have the hotkey (F9) to switch the integrated camera on/off but, I understand, on later versions Fn+Esc is supposed to perform the same function; it does not. The system has two associated programs, Lenovo EasyCamera and Lenovo YouCam.

More recently I have updated to Windows 8.1 but the integrated webcam still does not work. Can anyone please advise what I might be doing wrong or what I could do to get the webcam to work. I'm a bit of a newbie, particularly as far as Windows 8 is concerned. Regards.

A:Integrated Webcam on Lenovo Ideapad S300 not working.

Have you tried re-installing the webcam driver? I have a Lenovo at home and mine was ok when I upgraded, but I removed all the Lenovo drivers for the webcam. (As I hate all the rubbish companies put onto new equipment)

Also when you run the camera app does it detect a camera? Usually Windows 8 will ask for a camera to be plugged in. If it shows a blank image does the white light next to the lens turn on?

Hey there, just got my new notebook a few weeks ago. Started using Skype yesterday, but there's an issue with the webcam. I mean, it works, but it's extremely dark. I tried tweaking the Lenovo Settings, but increasing brightness and contrast only makes it worse, the video loses color and kinda greys somewhat. Any ideas on what's wrong here?

A:Lenovo IdeaPad 110-15ISK Webcam Issue

I haven't Skyped but have same PC a 110-15isk and also notice the camera produces a dark capture. Don't know if you could try reducing background lighting which maybe camera is reading off bright background? I noticed if I have bright light in background it makes my image more darker. Its not a great camera for sure.

A few days ago I tried to use my internal webcam, and it would work for a few minutes via Google Hangouts and then freeze. On Skype, it would be detected for a second, then make a sound as if I am unplugging a device (e.g. disabling a driver), and reconnect. Lastly, I reinstalled CyberLink YouCam 3, and now the cam isn't detected at all. Anybody have any ideas as to what it could be?

P.S. If it's a driver issue, does anyone know where one is? I can't find one on the blasted Lenovo site anywhere!

Thanks in advance everyone!
 

A:Lenovo IdeaPad Y460: Webcam is not detected

Theres 2 different sites for lenovo computers. Look for the one that has the drivers for the different models of ideapad laptops. It might be listed under support drivers and downloads. The other site is for the older ibm computers and thinkpads. It might be listed under laptop integrated webcam or something close to that.Im going to guess that yours came either with windows xp or vista. i had a y530 ideapad that came with vista so there should be the correct drivers for it.

This has been an exhausting day! I've been trying to figure this out for quite awhile.

To start, I'll post some information.

My webcam was working fine yesterday! I tried doing a system reboot to the the week before that and alas the issue prevailed. My internal webcam is not being registered by my laptop!

So the solution that seemed obvious enough was to check my drivers, update them if necessary. Which I ended up doing. Alas, the issue prevailed.

Checking the device status, I received the error "Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)

To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer." The device is currently registered as 'Unknown device' as I uninstalled the driver. I was receiving the same error when I did have the original drivers though.
Looking up what the error means, it meant that the device was disconnected. I'm not entirely sure how this could happen though with an internal laptop. I also need to get a new copy of the drivers (Which don't seem to be registering the device upon installation).

Anyway any help would be appreciated as this has become a huge headache for me, and i just want to skype with my friend!
 

A:Need help with internal webcam drivers for Lenovo Ideapad y510p.

It might be that the webcam has failed if everything else has been tried.you can take it somewhere and have it looked at but im not even sure they can be fixed when they go. it might be cheaper just to get an external webcam such as a logitech.

The webcam in my T420 suddenly stopped working. Tried the following:

F1 to access Bios. Under 'Security' the 'Integrated Camera' is enabled.

Under Windows Live Movie Maker: Displays 'No Webcam was found.'

Under Device Manager there are no 'Imaging Devices' listed so I can't update the drivers.

Lenovo Easy Capture tells me 'Failed to Open Camera'

Skype Tools>Options>Videos says 'Skype couldn't find a webcam.'

Have installed the 8aca15ww.exe Integrated Camera Driver.

Edit: thanks to those who looked at this post. As you probably guessed it's a hardware failure, and I've just taken it to Lenovo for service.

I upgraded my wife's Laptop to windows 10 from windows 7 last year and it seemed to work fine. She just went out of town and tried to use Skype to video call me but the webcam isn't working. The Audio works fine and Skype worked fine on windows 7. I had her push FN+ESC and it told her that there is no Webcam installed. I connected to her laptop via Teamviewer and tried to check the Device Manager Imaging Devices, but there was no entry for Imaging Devices. I downloaded the Camera Driver(Bison, Chicony) for Microsoft Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit) - Lenovo G460, G560 Lenovo G560 driver for windows 8 (no driver available for win10) and tried to install it but no luck. I'm wondering if there is a Microsoft Generic Webcam driver that might work, but this is her work machine so I don't want to remotely install drivers willy nilly. Thanks

Hello Have had some issues with my Lenovo Yoga 13 laptop recently.

When it has rarely done so, I have managed to restore all the changes made by AVG Tune up, uninstall it and then run a defragmentation. This appears to have sped up the laptop slightly and I can now log on.  However, I have now noticed that when connected to the internet, no pages load. I do however have another laptop and phone connected to wifi where the internet does work without any problems. It says that the wifi is "connected" and sometimes "No internet" but usually appears to be connected but no pages loading.  Thanks

hi vickydy,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
    First make sure this is a hardware concern.
Run an Onscreen Keyboard, by Pressing (Windows key + R) then type in OSK then hit enter
   Now on your onscreen Keyboard click on the keys that are not working see if they responding with the Onscreen keyboard.
     If the keys responded using the Onscreen Keyboard, Then your Keyboard hardware is bad.
Either you call Technical Support to have them repair the unit in / out of warranty repair OR Ask them where to get the part for it and have the keyboard replaced.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!
