How to turn on the webcam on Satellite notebook
Posted: 03-Jul-2008 11:12
 
When I open the camera assistant software and click on the 'start camera' icon it opens a new window (as it should), but no picture comes up.
If I then try click on the 'snapshot' icon it then tells me to 'turn on camera'.

Anybody know how to turn on the camera, as I have looked all over and I dont have a clue :S

What Satellite notebook do you have?
Do you have a Camera Assist Software in the taskbar?

Please check this!
There you can make a double click and a camera software should slide out from the left (depends on the settings)
There you should click the first option. This will start the cam.

If it does not work, remove the software and download and reinstall the new from the Toshiba European driver page.

I have done this. The bar does slide out from the left and I click on the first option. It just comes up with a window where the camera sight should be but it is grey. When I click on snapshot to take a photo it tells me o turn my camera on?

Ok, this is strange because if the software is already running, the webcam should be on.

However, you have still did not provide an answer to my first question about your notebook model.

Furthermore as I have already suggested above, if the cam software does not work, download the newest series from the Toshiba page and reinstall
