Sony :: The Built In Webcam Is Not Recognized :( [VGN-FW145E]

Mar 6, 2009

i have been using my sony viao without any problems so far, and all of a sudden, my webcam is not recognized!

i tried to get it through skype, and it wouldn't work, i then went to the webcam software, and it also wouldn't work.

the error message said something like webcam not recognized, and then it said something like reinstall or might be in use with other programs. but for SURE, there is no other program running it!

i don't know how to install a webcam that is already inbuilt!

on a side, note, i also bought the really neat sony vaio mouse, the bluetooth one, and that too is not being recognized by my vaio

i am not sure if the mouse and webcam are related issues, or separte. if somebody has any idea of what i can try to do, i would REALLY REALLY REALLY appreciate it! thx, i need to connect to my family through webcam!

Dell :: Before Modding: DIY Built In Webcam

Aug 4, 2008

what I have here is an e1705 which I have been modding, externally it looks like a 1710, which one day it will be one when I can afford the prices, but what I want to do is I want to take a cheap USB webcam with a built in microphone, and build it into the bezel above the screen.

Has anyone done this before?

The only issues I'm afraid of are camera size, the rest should be fairly easy, tapping into a USB port, setting the mics and drilling holes etc.

Making room for a tiny cam will surely be the hardest part, and making room for it up there and having to cut apart at the lock system at the top to keep the screen from opening.

Luckily since I do have an XPS LCD back on this there is plleeenty of room for wires etc, the standard 1705 LCD back is nearly flush with the backlight making it hard to add any more wires, but the XPS LCD back has tons of room so i'm not worried about that, and I've opened this up enough to route wires down to one of the USB ports easily.

HP DV6-6c38TX Display :: Inbuilt Webcam Not Working As It Should - Fails To Be Recognized After Using

May 2, 2013

I am an HP DV6-6c38TX  running Windows 7 x64. I also have VMWare Workstation 10 installed.
Drivers installed for the webcam are :
1) running in normal Windows 7 x64 base machine  (not VMWare)
a) after booting the laptop I can use the webcam
b) I run an app to capture an image and it works fine. I then close the app.
c) I open Skype and use the webcam and then Exit Skype. 
d) I open the app again and it says - could not detect webcam device  (assuming this comes from the app)
f) I open Skype and check the webcam and it works. I stop the webcam (Skype still running)
g) I start the app again and now the webcam works
h) I Quit Skype, runthe app again, and it now says - could not detect webcam device
That is just for the Laptop running as is.
2)  VMWare
now in VMWare, this is worse.
a) I attach the Webcam
b) I run the same app, but it says - could not detect webcam device
c) I close VWMare
d) Now no app detects the webcam, not the app, not Skype.
e) I check the Device Manager and in fact the webcam now does not even appear in the Dedvice Manager...

Sony :: Why The New Vaio SR Webcam Is Only 0.3MP

Jan 25, 2010

I was really excited to see the new Vaio SR replacement come out here in Japan. Here it's called the VPCS11, and it's available with the i7-620M CPU, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, Nvidia GeForce 310M GPU, 16:9 ratio screen, and a bunch of other cool features! Here's a link (sorry it's in Japanese). I was ready to "pull the trigger" when I saw that the integrated webcam went from a 1.3MP on the old SR to a 0.31MP with the new "S-Series." I do a lot of virtual meetings (Skype), so I need the best video calling I can get. OK, I figure, ditch the Vaio and get a Lenovo T410s, which has a 2.0MP integrated webcam. Then I ran across this article, which explains why Sony probably went with a smaller resolution webcam. All right, back to "pulling the trigger" on the new "S".

Sony :: Vaio TT Webcam

May 18, 2009

This laptop, which has numerous touchpad problems, can't play sound files properly, and which apparently has a Ctrl button that only registers 50% of the time I tap it ... also has a faulty webcam. I have the Sony TZ model (its predecessor) right next to it with the same built-in webcam technology in the lid. The TZ is clear and focused and works fine. Of course the TT model is blurry, unfocused, and looks poor quality.

I have finally decided to toss in the towel with this lemon of a laptop model and will enjoy hearing about all the recalls they will be doing in the future, when people start speaking up about these problems. I am no longer going to try to have the problem fixed or order yet another (ive already tried three of them, all had problems). Im going to get the "Z" model instead.

I just wanted to put this thread out there so when (not if) people search for Webcam problems with the Sony Vaio TT model, they will know its not all in their head, just because of the enthusiasts in the TT threads.

Sony :: VAIO VGN-CR123E Webcam Missing

Apr 24, 2010

My Dad decided he wants to try out Skype, so I decided to set it up for him. The webcam function wouldn't work and after repeatedly reinstalling the webcam driver from the Sony website, I realized that it just wasn't showing up in the Device Manager. Repeated installations and hardware scans are just not picking it up. Let me clarify that this is the first time he's ever tried to use the webcam on the computer.

Is this likely an indication of a hardware problem?

This is the driver I've repeatedly tried installing:

The strange part is that although the driver installation goes very quickly, no errors show up and it states at the end of the installation that it installed sucessfully and lists the following as the driver name:

Windows Driver Package - Ricoh R5U870 (UVC) (04/02/2007 6.1005.209.0)

Despite this, it's not showing up at all in the Device Manager or anywhere. It's basically as if the camera is non-existent physically.

If it is a hardware problem, then I'm just going to buy him an external webcam. The laptop is out of warranty.

Sony :: Any1 Get Vgp-vcc5 Webcam Working On 64bit

Oct 27, 2009

im trying to get the dang thing to work w/ something on my vista x64 sz-491n laptop. ive tried several things already.

1) download the original file but its only x86 when x64 bit files like the later model sz's. ive used have disk method for the x86 files and just a black screen in camera capture utility.

2) i took my working x64 vista webcam driver from my sz650n vcc7 and modified inf to make it a vcc5 and used have disk method w/o luck also.

i dunno why sony had to make a different webcam driver for each model sz. anyone understand how i can get this to work w/ x64 bit on my sz491n machine? or even windows 7 x64 bit even because i could upgrade if i had to.

Dell :: Studio 15 Webcam Center "No Supported Webcam Driver Detected" SOLVED

May 18, 2009

A few days before I was going to shipping my Studio 15 off. I looked in the box and low and behold I found the Dell Webcam Center disk that I originally thought that Dell had forgotten to include.

Upon installation I found that the specific version of Dell WC that came with my Studio 15 is not the same one that you find at the downloads center on

I could never get the downloaded Dell WC to work, even after numerous chats with technical support. No matter how many times I contacted Dell about this, they claimed there is only one version of Dell Webcam Center. Clearly that isn't true .....

Acer :: 3G Built-in For Aspire One?

when 3G for the Acer Aspire One is finally offered, new models, of course, will have 3G capability built in. Does anybody have a guess as to what kind of modification or accessory we will be able to use to get 3G on existing AAOs.

I would rather not have to go the route of the ATT USB DataConnect thingy, but will if I have to.
