Lenovo Chromebook N22 Camera not detected

Q: Lenovo Chromebook N22 Camera not detected

Hi there, I have a couple N22 Chromebook devices where it says that the Camera is not detected and to check the connection. I have tried power washing, resetting settings and also looked at the connection and it seems to be connected. I know I sent a couple in last year for this same issue, but now they are of warranty, so I am wondering if anyone else can help me out with this. Thanks in advance.

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.)

The Lenovo N23 Chromebooks (80YS series) is not compatible with the Google Chrome Camera App (seems silly...since it's supposed to be Google based).  Anyone have a solution for this?  We've tried other apps, and there's just not one that works like it's supposed to in all of the programs (some aren't compatible with Google Docs/sheets/etc..., some don't zoom, some won't recognize the camera, some won't take pictures that save to the drive just in an online account).   Any help would be much appreciated.

I have a Kodak SD camera card that my Sony A230 stopped detecting when inserted. I have been using this card for a year with no problems till today. I can plug it in a card reader in any of my computers and remove or send photos to it so I don't think it is a contact issue. I was using the camera today when the battery became exhausted and it shut off during a shoot. Since then the camera won't detect it. What could the problem be?

Has any one out in ChromebookLand been able to use the acclaimed system to show picture full screen from sets of jpg files? Due to the puny memory capacity, and difficult to work with external SD card slot, I tried to connect a Sandisk Media drive. The Media drive connects very well, but the display operations of pictures is just not professional.  The keystrokes are quasi not functional or not present.  When giving the show, I need to waste time explaing the customer what to do, and the 'slides' are not full screen, but small.  The colors ARE GREAT, but that is about it. As an aisde, any one ever wonder why the letters are in lower case????  My 5 year old asked me.

Hi, I just purchased my Lenovo N22-20 Chromebook from Amazon. However, I am having problems getting into Recovery Mode using the instructions published here https://support.google.com/chromebook/answer/1080595?hl=en-GB&source=genius-rts. When I press and hold esc + refresh, then press the power button (for about half a second)- it immediately shutsdown my chromebook, it doesn't go into recovery mode. I tried this sequence with the chromebook off and it does nothing. I tried the sequence before and after logging in too.  I also tried esc + refresh on it's own as some posts suggested just those two keys. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a different set of keystrokes that need to be used with a Lenovo N22-20? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

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

Hello,I tried to make my chromebook into a Linux machine - but I fear that will not happen. I went through the entire process of removing the keyboard etc, and finally moved the switch. However, upon pressing the power button......nothing. Nothing with just the battery, nothing with just AC power, nothing at all. Can anyone point me in the right direction? is there something I missed? Or is this perfectly good laptop just dead weight now?Thanks.

I haven't used my chromebook for about 3 days. It was probably completely dead. I went to turn it on and the screen was white. I hit the power button and it shut off. When I tried to turn it back on, nothing. I plugged it in and the orange charging light came on. Still nothing. Let it charge overnight until the green fully charged light came on. Nothing. I've tried holding the refresh and power buttons as well as the esc, refresh, and power buttons. I've tried unplugging it and holding the power button down and then plugging it back in. Still nothing. There is no external battery. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Just something that we as a schoolboard found out about these devices, is that they use a magnet to sense when the lid is closed.  This issue that this causes is that if you have the devices stacked on top of each other that the magnet from the device below will stop the top one from turning on.  Some of our techs had them stacked while they were trying to enroll a large number of devices.  This is just an FYI.

You are going to need two things. A driver for the device and an application that can use it.

If you tell us the make and model of the camera and mic we might be able to help you find them,

Hello Chara,

Have you already installed your web cam driver? If not, you can get them at the link below from Sony. It only has Preinstalled Drivers and Utilities for Vista available though. If the driver doesn't install properly in Windows 7, then you could try using Compatiblity Mode on the driver installer.

I can't explore the camera's folders, I can't open the camera with Zoom Browser EX, etc. However, when I go to device manager, uninstall the driver for it, unplug and plug it back in, I have a few seconds where I can view the camera's folders, and it works just fine. That's when the drivers start to download, once they are finished, it breaks again. I have not found ANY way to disable automatic driver updates. I have went to the place where I make it ask me first, which it doesn't do. I do not want to format, but see no other option. I am updated to the newest version of Windows and the camera doesn't come with any drivers.

Right click the camera in device manager and click properties.
Click roll back driver and roll it back to the previous driver.
When you are done with that,go to control panel and run
windows update.
It should show that newer driver.
Right click it and click hide update.

Hi,

Of recent my canon SD970 camera is no longer been detected by my PC - OS/XP. I spent over an hour with a canon tech without a resolution. I unstalled and reinstalled the software.

The camera is reflected in the device manager and under services. However not under "My Computer". All USB ports are functioning as they should. I recently removed Norton antivirus and fire wall. I replaced with AVG anti virus and zone alarm fire wall. A registry clean was also ran as the PC was really sluggish.

Everything else seem to work. Except the camera not been detected. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Hi all,

I bought a Samsung YP-Q2 in Canada and am now in India, trying to get it connected to my PC to do some uploading and organizing... I've traditionally used Emodio (Samsung's proprietary software) to connect/sync the device...
When I first connected this to my PC here, it automatically detected as Camera and wanted to install the drivers/software for it, and me being a knob at that particular moment, said Yes. I did this before I installed Emodio.

So now whenever I plug it in, it is recognised as a camera by Windows, and I cannot access the files using Emodio... I can still access using Windows Explorer, but I prefer Emodio as its easier (well, anything's easier than Explorer)
How do I make windows to NOT recognize or "unrecognize" the Q2, and then make it run via Emodio?

Thanks for your time!
Praveen.

A:Samsung YP-Q2 being detected as Digital Camera!!

Check device manager and remove the camera devices there then reboot with the camera unplugged. Remove the Emodio software reboot then reinstall it.

A new day, a new problem.

I have 2 systems, quite similar:
System 1: KT333 ATX board, AMD 1.8GHz processor, HD Maxtor 80Gb.
System 2: K7VMM+ board, AMD Duron 1.3GHz processor, HD Seagate 40Gb.
Both systems running WinXP Home, upgraded to SP2.

I have followed instructions for installing Olympus D-545 digital camera on both systems. The PC is supposed to recognize the camera as a removable drive and assign a drive letter to it. On System 1, the procedure worked flawlessly, so I am reasonably sure there is nothing wrong with camera or cable. On System 2, the camera is not detected at all on either of the 2 available USB ports. However, I have a previously installed Logitech webcam that is fully functional on either USB port, which seems to indicate that there is nothing wrong with the ports. This has me stumped.

Hello Dan and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sometimes, because of the age of the computer, some manufacturers won't spend the time or money to develop newer drivers for the latest operating systems. This may be the situation you're facing ... that no drivers for Windows 7 were developed by Sony for your particular Vaio.

But you may be able to get the Vista driver to work in Compatibility Mode. This isn't a sure thing. It may not work at all, or it may have reduced functionality if it does work.

(posted also here but probably should be in Win 10 forum instead)
After upgrading the Venue 11 Pro 5130 (32bit) to Windows 10 from 8.1, the cameras are not found at all. The camera app just reports an error it can't find a camera and that's it. Other apps that use the camera also do the same.
Device Manager however lists the device though as "intel imaging signal processor 2400" and no obvious issues there. Driver version 603.9600.1945.51302.
I note the Venue 11 is listed as tested in Windows 10.

Cameras were working before the upgrade (though note the issues I and many others have had out of the box with the 5130 and the Microsoft Camera app, but that was only the rear camera, worked with video option or panorama, never a problem with other apps, and only occurred after letting the device sleep and go into Connected Standby. Given I have disabled CS anyway due to the still not fixed issue with BIOS A10 and later that prevent it waking from CS then that problem has gone away).

A:Venue 11 Pro 5130 (32bit) - Camera not detected in Windows 10

okay, think I've fixed it.

Uninstall 'Intel Imagine Signal Processor 2400', then install the following ...

Intel Atom Z3000 Series Chipset Driver - 603.9600.2067.27988, A00 (28 July 2015)
http://www.dell.com/support/home/uk/en/ukbsdt1/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=36NNM&fileId=3475160809&osCode=WT32A&productCode=dell-venue-11-pro&languageCode=EN&categoryId=CS

It will say it's already installed or there are newer drivers, but install it anyway. Reboot, and finally cameras work.
End result it the camera driver is now 603.9600.1948.31252, different from what I had, but it insisted before I already had the same or newer drivers after upgrading to Windows 10.
