Webcam no longer works
Posted 12 December 2007 - 04:52 AM
Interestingly the BIOS had the webcam disabled so I enabled it.
But the system diags don't see the camera and the webcam app just gives me a blank screen, although the webcam app does turn on the green led.
the app eeecamtray seg faults for me and doing:
echo 1 > /proc/acpi/asus/camera
doesn't change a thing.
Any suggestions out there?
I'm going to put the old 512M stick back in and see if that changes anything. (doubtful)
thx in advance..

and in record time..
I'll update the wiki to reflect this issue (non-issue)

it's not in the wiki and searching for 'dead webcam', 'inactive webcam', even 'webcam' didn't turn up anything.
I didn't think to search on 'webcam black image' which gets to the discussion. Note that I was using the diagnostics to determine that the webcam was not working...
Thanks for the help..

ADDED: I also tried my Creative Optia and it also shows up correctly in Diagnostics but no connect in Skype or recording application. ????

Do I need to enable this device? And where do I enable it?
