Default Help with webcams please?


I have a logitech quickcam messenger - i can send images okay but when i try to receive all i ever get is a black screen.

I am using my logitech quickcam through msn messenger 6.2. OS is XP

Anyone able to point me in the right direction i dont even know what the problem could be.

It could be my hardware ? software? I dont know.

Apologies if this is in the wrong forum but like i say I am pretty new to all this and i dont even know where the problem is.

thank you

Send a message via Yahoo to intercodes


Does this happen with all the clients that you communciate with? Or its more likely that the other party has some problem in sending webcam images. Its not a hardware problem. A little peek at the configuration of MSN messenger can help you. Also try using someother messengers like yahoo to check send/receive webcam images.
