Preferred Solution: camera 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.)

A: camera not working

This issue can be a hard thing to fix and get working properly again. If the issue is software related than chances are a lot better that you might be able to fix it. I just want to stress that this can be a pretty bad malfunction and there?s probably only about a 50% chance of actually fixing this problem

Can anyone help me?
I've tried updating my camera drivers in device manager, uninstalling the camera and booting windows 10 again...to no avail. Still no main camera....only the front camera works.
Does the rear camera need seperate drivers? How do I check this?

I found out that my web camera doesn't work with Skype as it used to. I followed all procedures to diagnose the issue and found out that software manager doesn't find any camera on my computer. Should I renew a camera driver? So how to find one? I have 4 CDs to recover the system, but it looks as everything will be formated if I use this option. Is there a way to resolve my problem faster?

I have a Sony notebook laptop with a 'motion eye' camera. The software is installed but I can't find it. i don't know where to go. I read many people had the same problem but I don't know how to open that program if I want to take pictures. I can use the webcam for messenger. but not the program alone.
Can you help ?
regards.
 

A:Camera is not working

Control Panel | Scanners and Cameras
Under Printers and Other Hardware if in Category view
The camera should be shown in there, and you can use the Windows wizard to take pictures.

If they the laptop came with a separate application for the camera, you'll just need to browse through the Start | All Programs list. Could be in the main list, could be under Accessories

Hi - I have a Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX - have had it a while and its always worked. Now whilst I can see myself if I open the cam for myself, but if I chat to someone on Windows Live Messenger - there is a red cross, and the picture doesnt appear. Im using Windows XP Home Edition.

Strangely enough my other laptop which has Vista and a built in Cam (and has worked) - also doesnt work on Windows Live Messenger.

Have you any clues?

Hi Matthewliu1,If the webcam is not being recognized in the Webcam central software then please follow the steps mentioned below for refreshing the drivers for webcam.
Open ‘Device Manager’ by clicking the Start button. In the search box, type ‘Device Manager’, and then, in the list of results, click ‘Device Manager’.
When the device manager pops up, in the list please check for ‘Imaging devices’.
Under ‘Imaging devices’ check if you are finding webcam.
Right click on the webcam available and click on ‘Uninstall’.
Check the box which says delete the software and click ‘OK’.
Restart the system and check for issue resolution.

Also, I would suggest that you download the ‘Dell Webcam Central’ and install it.
Please follow the steps below to run the diagnostics for the Webcam on the system.

HI

I have installed IP CAmera - DVR Viewer, in Location Qatar. This camera is installed and connected in the LAN Of the Qatar Location and is configured with DynDNS. The Router is a SPEEDPOINT and the Firewall is turned off. The Hostname is updated successfully in the router. Port 8080 is forwarded.
The Problem is the camera is able to view from any location inside Qatar. But our HO is based in the UAE. We are not able to access the camera from the UAE.
Similarly they are not able to access the cameras in UAE. But in UAE Locally we can access it. These host names are under zone level services in the DynDNS Account.
Please help us in advising in what ways we will be able to access the Camera Worldwide?

A:IP Camera not working

Use Ping and Traceroute tools to diagnose the problem:

http://help.expedient.com/general/ping_traceroute.shtml

Try Ping and Traceroute tests locally and from UAE and compare.

Ping the public ip address of the camera and the DNS name.......For example:

Ping 211.23.10.9

Ping www.thecamera.qatar

Traceroute 211.23.10.9

Traceroute www.thecamera.qatar

NOTE: As you are aware there are a number of restricted websites/services in Qatar. You may have to check with your local internet provider to be certain you are allowed to send traffic on that port outside of the country?

Show your internet provider the Ping and Traceroute results. I do not think this forum can help you bypass restrictions.

I have just finished my month-long exam. (That's not the problem; it's described below).

A week before my exams, I had opened Windows (in Safe mode, as Windows is not booting in normal configuration, and I have to re-install it) to transfer the photos. I connected the camera with the computer with the help of a USB cable, and turned the camera on. As usual, the LCD of the camera was off while the lens was out, the LED was green in colour. After I copied the photos, since I didn't find the "Safely remove hardware" option, I shutted down the computer, and still, the LCD was off. I took out the camera from the cable, still the camera is in that state, the LED is still on. I tried several things, but the same thing is happening. The lens is out, the LED off.

How can I get my camera working again?

It's a Nikon Coolpix 5600 (5.1 megapixels, 3x optical zoom).

Try installing the webcam in another computer check if it will work, if not then the webcam could have been damage. But, if the webcam is working on another computer, you may need to reinstall the driver to have it work again with your computer.

Computer model? OS? App?
 
Two quick things to try. Some Lenovo laptops have a camera hotkey. I cannot count the number of times I've accidentally hit that. If you have the hotkeys disabled, you'll need to press Fn + F8 (or whatever it is on your particular model, though I believe it's almost always F8. It really helps to know the model). It could be as simple as pressing the hotkey to turn the camera back on.
 
Windows Update 1803 introduced some new privacy settings that disable the camera by default. To adjust these - assuming you're using Windows 10.. it really helps to know these things - go to the new settings: Windows Key + I > Privacy > Camera. 
 
If none of that helps, we'll have to dig deeper. You'll need to provide more detailed information.
