Hardware problems / Trouble Shooting Webcam Problems
« Last post by ehelps624 on November 19, 2010, 12:06:58 AM »
In order to keep up with the new applications, webcam software is regularly updated in order to work harmoniously with the applications being released. However, these pose problems with the users as their computers cannot communicate properly with the webcam brought about by these changes. There are also other issues which cause webcam problems that need attention. Before you can trouble shoot any webcam problems, it is best to first yze the cirstances to ensure that it is not hardware problems.
How to diagnose the situation

The process of elimination works best on this aspect. Ruling out the possible hardware breakdown will eventually lead you to a more exact cause of the problem.

Try to unplug the device first and then plug it back into the computer. In some instances, doing this will relaunch the computer and webcam connection. However, if it fails, plug the webcam into another computer. If it works, then you are dealing with a driver issue. If it does not work, it is most likely that the webcam is already faulty. Even as hardware problems are a common cause for incompatibility with a lot of computers, there are also cases where the outdated drivers or not having drivers at all is the issue.

How to fix webcam driver faults

As soon as you have established that the problem is a driver error, you can now take necessary steps to solve this. Drivers act as the translators between the webcam and the communicator. Communication between the webcam and the computer is impossible if the drivers are broken, outmoded or is missing. The solutions to this are to have it repaired, updated or install the right drivers.

Normal computer usage can damage the drivers for a certain period of time. It can also be that a virus caused the driver to malfunction. Attempt reinstalling the webcam drivers.

Regular updating of the operating system can also cause the driver not to work properly. This is because the webcam drivers are not compatible with the new operating system. What you need to do is to update the drivers in this situation.

How to fix the situation automatically

Fixing the driver problem can be done manually. Although there is an easy way to fix it. By using software such as DriverFinder, drivers will be routinely updated and/or repaired. This software also does regular scanning and regularly updates the drivers.

I think it will automatically detect the webcam and install the drivers. But for some reason it would not install the driver, could you at least provide details about your webcam such as model number, etc.

That solution was perfect - changing the setting on the camera.  You would think that Canon would put something on their driver download site other than "No drivers available" for Windows Vista.  You saved me a lot of hassle.
