X1 Carbon Gen 1 (Type 34xx) Webcam Stopped Working

Q: X1 Carbon Gen 1 (Type 34xx) Webcam Stopped Working

Recently I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 Pro, before this I have no clue if the webcam was working but since trying to use the Camera app I have noticed there is no feed.I then went looking around, having installed (all auto-update recommended) applications for the laptop from the Lenovo support and drivers page. I noticed that there was no Intergrated Camera driver in the list, I then decided to install it manually. I was then met with a "Can't find the device, Abort install!"I have attempted to use FN+F6 to enable and disable the camera, even with restarts in between. I have also gone through the BIOS and enabled/disabled the camera to see if it would then detect it and nothing has worked.Has anyone else had an issue like this and been able to resolve it?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi,
 
I have have been using my ThinkPad X1 Carbon 34xx for the last year and half. Lately, I noticed that when charging the battery, it sometimes stopped unexpectedly. I had then to let the battery discharge a while before resuming the fullcharge, then successfully.
 
However, last week, the battery again stopped charging and this time, disconnecting the power cable turned off my laptop immediately. I tried all the reset combinations I could find on internet to no avail. The system indicate the battery level at 42%, but beside this indication, the computer behave as if the battery was disconnected.
 
The most relevant indicator I noticed is that when plugging the cable (computer being then switched off), the battery led blinks green 3 times, orange 2 times and green again 1 time. But I could not find any explacation for this blinking secquence.
 
I would greatly appreciate your help!
Pierre

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen 1 (34XX) that has a black screen issue with the following symptoms: - The system starts when pressing the power key, the fan and keyboard lights turn on normally, but the screen stays completely black.- by connecting to an external display using the mini HDMI port, the video signal can be seen on the external display.- the multi-touch future, web camera and integrated wireless antenna inside the display work fine, however, the screen itself is dark all the time.  What has been tried so far without a fix:- hard reset of the device using the key located on the back of the laptop.-  updating the BIOS and display drivers.- windows recovery/update. - opening the device, disconnecting the internal battery from the motherboard and pressing the power key for a few minutes. Has anyone experienced the same issue before and is there a solution to it? Any idea if this is a motherboard or display problem? Many Thanks.

I am at my wit's end here. I've tried all the usual troubleshooting tactics to try and resolve this issue but for about 4 months now my microphone and webcam have not been working on my 5th generation X1 Carbon Thinkpad laptop. This is driving me crazy. Is this a known issue? Is there anything else I can try to resolve this?  The sound works fine but microphone is never detected whether it's through the laptop, through the headphone jack, or through a USB-C earbud or bluetooth. Really cripples my ability to get any work done with web conferences and video meetings. I've searched around and haven't found any solutions.

Since getting the machine, I've not been able to use the integrated microphone array at all. It is enabled, and I've given the apps I've tried the permission to use it. Both external USB-mic and headphones with integrated mic with 3.5mm plug work. I've tried downloading and reinstalling the Realtek driver from the support pages. No help. What to do? Using up to date Windows. April update did not help either.  ----(As a side note since I couldn't find a place to give feedback: it would be nice if the Pro Dock would stop crashing. Or at least would recover without removing the power cord. And I'm pretty sure that at the time I ordered the order page said that an ethernet adapter was included. No such luck. And the integrated on the chip fingerprint reader recognizes me maybe one time out of ten. I originally thought that it was broken, but I guess it just doesn't like me.)

In the last couple days my X1 carbon 5th gen (with its warrenty coming to an end in 2 weeks) has started to do the weirdest thing. While every other FKeys work perfectly, the first three, those who control volume and mute and un-mute have stopped working.  I checked every possible driver update every day, multiple times since then and nothing seams to work. I also have rebooted and - miracle - the 3 keys started working again ... for a couple seconds before stopping once more. The only thing I have not tried is to reinstall windows, but I must submit my masters thesis pretty soon, so if I can manage to fix this problem without spending a whole day reinstalling everything on my laptop, I'd be eternally grateful.  Ideas?

Is there a way we can change the touchpad Reverse scrolling option (Scroll --> Two Finger Scrolling --> Switch Direction) on the X1 Carbon through an automated way. We see that after Windows 10 upgrade, the scroll option on the touchpad has been changed. So doing it manually it works but we want to automate it either through a registry change or some other method. Yes manual changes works perfectly.

A:webcam stopped working?

Hello.

There might just be something wrong with your webcam.
First off, be sure to have the latest drivers installed, then try it on the software provided together with the driver (some webcam models are known to be conflicting with Skype, just a thought).

If nothing here helps, I'm afraid there's something wrong with the webcam itself or the cables connecting it with the mobo.

Keep me posted, good luck!

The installation won't even start.

HI there I am having a peculiar problem. The right-side USB port (the one next to the Ethernet port) of my 3rd Gen X1 Carbon (model 20BT) has stopped working. Windows reports two USB controllers, and Linux does the same. The ethernet port works as expected. I even replaced the USB/RJ45 system card and the problem persists: The Ethernet port works, the USB port does not. No peripheral is being recognised (I have tried a wireless mouse, a usb flash drive and a Yubikey) and no power seems to be available from the port.  I was thinking that if there was some issue with the motherboard then one of the USB host chips would not be recognised, but this does not seem to be the case. I am now thnking whether it would be worth it to replace the motherbaord or just purchase another (used) machine. The warranty has expired. Any ideas? Thank you! Frixos

A:Internal webcam stopped working!!!

lexmark x422 refers to a Lexmark printer/scanner, not a webcam. Try re-installing the Lexmark drivers for that device.

If your webcam is not listed in DeviceManager, and if the Lexmark X422 is the only device with an error symbol, it means the webcam itself is faulty or broken. Out-of-warranty repair on laptops is very expensive, you can avoid that by buying an external webcam.

I have an advent roma 3000 laptop with built in webcam. I've only had in about 2 months, refirbed from PC World.

Anyway, the web cam has worked fine this whole time on things like MSN and Skype, I didnt have to install it; it took care of everything during the set up process.

Today it stopped working It allows to start a video call on MSN but it is just black. When I run the Youcam software (that came with it), it says video detected but again just black. I thought it could be because the 30 day trial of this ran out? (I dont use the software itself because I only use cam on MSN). I uninstalled that and tried both yawcam and VLC media as people advised these would help.. no job. I reinstalled the YouCam software it worked for a few minutes but then nothing.

When i video call on MSN, the light on the webcam comes on as if it is sending and people on the other end can hear my sound, but no picture!

My webcam would suddenly stop working. The computer would not detect it or would be an unknown device. Nothing would resolve it, not restart, not troubleshoot, not remote tech support. I even had an open ticket. Then it would magically reappear.

This is what I noticed and tested it on my pc. If the computer goes to sleep, either from inactivity or you putting it to sleep, the camera does not wake up with your PC. Restarting does not help. The only thing that helped was to SHUT DOWN wait 10-15 seconds and power up. I no longer put my computer to sleep and if it goes to sleep and I have to use the webcam, I SHUT DOWN and wait and power up and everything is fine.

I just signed up to share, hopefully it will help other people. I was soooo frustrated and noticed so many websites with posts with the same problem as mine, but nobody posted a solution. Maybe they just forgot in their excitement of getting the camera working again.
