Troubleshooting guide

Your webcam does not work ? You do not see any image or information ? No problem ! Only follow these simple steps and we will operate your webcam in the blink of an eye:

Step 1.

If you use an external webcam, check that it is connected to the USB port on your computer and its connection cable is not damaged. When you connect a new webcam for the first time, you will generally see a notification on the screen or hear a signal. You can also see a message where you need to click on “authorize” to give your webcam access to your computer.

2nd step.

If you want to see if your camera is recognized by your computer, you can check your system settings. For Mac users, you can access it by clicking on the Apple icon at the top left. Click on “About this Mac” → “System report” → “devices”. In Windows, go to the configuration panel, then select “Show devices and printers” to display current devices.

Step 3.

Make sure your software is up to date, including your operating system, your webcam drivers and the software you use for your webcam. If you use an external webcam, check if it is compatible with the software you use to use it.

Step 4.

Some webcam models have a “on/off” switch. Make sure your camera is on if it has one.

  • You have doubts about the settings of a recently purchased webcam and you want to test your webcam and its features (because all sellers are not honest).
  • You have several cameras and you want to compare them to find out which one is the best (the more efficient the camera, the higher the “quality level”).
  • You want to know if your camera is equipped with an integrated microphone or an integrated speaker (beware, this feature is a bit bogged).
  • You want to know how many images per second (FPS) makes your webcam (low FPS causes video discrepancies).
  • You want to know how much colors contains a photo taken with your webcam (more colors means better image quality).
  • You want to know the resolution of your web camera (high quality webcams have high resolution and can provide HD video calls).
  • Check the quality of your webcam compared to other webcams (for this, you must leave an opinion on your webcam).
