Lenovo y700 IR camera not working

Q: Lenovo y700 IR camera not working

Yesterday I tried to unlock the laptop using Windows hello feature but couldn't notice the IR camera, so the screen was stuck at "Looking for you". The steps I tried are :-1. Uninstalled and reinstalled Intel real sense driver multiple times.2. Rolled back to previous verison of Real sense driver.3. Uninstalled any recent windows update that could've caused the mess.I'm out of ideas, can any one help me?Thanks in advance

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.)

Hello, I have a new T530 with Windows 8 OS. I am having trouble using the integrated camera. It functions neither in the Windows camera app nor in Skype. In both cases I get a picture with a gray background and a camera with a line through it. In Device manager, the camera does appear, is enabled, and the drivers are up to date.After looking through other threads, I tried checking whether the camera was plugged in and indeed it was. When using Skype and I set the camera to on (Skype did detect the camera), I still got the gray no camera image, but the green light on the camera itself turned on.I also tried using Fn+F6 to check settings. Lenovo settings opens, but the when I click the camera settings Icon, the screen loads a blank page that says "Camera" in the top right and has a back button (left pointing arrow) in the top left hand corner. The back button does not seem to work and I must change the window to something else in order to exit/close settings.I tried manually installing both camera drivers and "power management" ("energy management"?) drivers. Neither of this solved either of these issues.Please help me to resolve this problem. Thank you.

Hi, euterpenc
 
I would make sure that the BIOS is up to date in the system. The current BIOS for your system is 2.07 and can be found here. Also, I would ensure that the chipset drivers are up to date, and those can be found here.
 
Hope it helps, and let me know how it goes
Adam

A:lenovo y700 Subwoofer not working

Are you sure it's not working?   I thought the same when i bought mine new, but i was wrong.   It's only a 3watt sub so its barely noticable in my opinion. There is an area where you can control the volume level of the 2 speakers and the sub.  Make sure those are both up.  Speaker Properties-->Levels

I recenty purchased a y700. The only problem i'm having is the built in microphone doesn't seem to pick up anything and when i plug in my earbuds with a built-in microphone, the audio works and the microphone doesn't.

Firstly, i want to say that i've seen many topics related to this problem on forums , but didn't find the solution.The keyboard randombly freezes when playing, problem didn't occur while browsing or doing random stuff.In order to make it work again, it requires to push the power button for restarting PC, because after restarting it through START/POWER/RESTART i get that BIOS or whatever it's called table about starting in safe mode, but i can't click on it because keyboard still doesn't work. I've tried updating KB drivers, but it says it's up to date, tried unistalling them on safe mode.WIN 10

Hi everyone, I bought this laptop about 3 months ago and I'm loving it so far. But every so often the keyboard would just stop working and when I try shutting it off, it would go through the entire shutting off process and the screen goes black but all the lights and fan would still be on. I am then forced to hold the power button down to force it off. When I restart the computer instead, it would take me to the blue screen where it would say "Windows has ran into an unexpected error" then the screen would turn black again and everything else would be on. Anyone have any idea or solution to what's going on? Thanks in advnace!

H guys, I have Lenovo G50-80, i7 and today my camera stopped working. I can see the light is on, but the screen is black. Occassionally the picture appears, but it's frozen. I tried updating drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling the cam and drivers again, but nothing seems to be working. I ran diagnostics and this is what I got (attachment). Is it time to buy an external camera, or this one can be fixed? Thank you so much

Hi, hope you can help me. I saw some similar posts about the fans but in my case the fans go very loud randomly and go to complete silence every 5-10 minutes with 1% - 3% CPU usage. For instance just simply browsing, not watching any videos or anything. Uninstalling Lenovo power managment utility didn't help, updating BIOS didn't help either. The room temperature is 19 degrees. The laptop is 2 weeks old and has been doing that from the very begining. Any other suggestions please?

The camera has been working with Skype.  Now not working and camera icon on Skype screen has line across it showing camera not working/available.   In Device Manager I have checked that the device is available (Lenovo EasyCamera).  I have checked privacy settings and camera is on.  I have downloaded an updated driver. The 'general' tab states 'This device is working properly'. My operating system is Windows 10.  Thank you SEJoseph - I have checked in Lenovo Settings and the camera icon has a slash through it.  I assume that means it is disabled.  If so how can I enable it? Problem solved - in Lenovo Settings - camera - set privacy to 'off'.  Camera now works with Skype.

Hi, I bought a new Lenovo ideapad 510-15IKB about a month ago. It has windows 10. When I click on camera app it says "we can't find your camera. Check to be sure it's connected and installed properly, that it isn't being blocked by antivirus software, and that your camera drivers are up-to-date. If you need it, here's the error code: 0xA00F4244(0xC00D36D5). I have first disabled my antivirus and tried, but that didn't work. 'I checked device manager and there I couldn't see "Imaging devices" under which camera should show up as far as I know. Then I installed the camera driver here[1] and restarted the laptop but still camera app wouldn't work and camera wasn't there under device manager. Any help to get this issue resolved would be appreciated.  [1] http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/lk/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/500-Series/510-15IKB/downloads Thanks,Devni
