  1. Camera not operating


    I used my camera yesterday and today for Zoom and Microsoft Classroom meetings and it worked fine. Tonight I signed into a Zoom meeting and the camera would not work WHEN IT WAS TURNED ON! When I turned it off, the familiar icon appeared of the camera with a red line through it and my Initial appeared on the screen. When I turned it on, nothing! The camera lens is open, the light comes on when the camera is activated, but neither Zoom or Microsoft classroom recognize my camera. What is going on?

    :)

  3. Laptop Camera

    Thanks for updating us on the results of the troubleshooting steps that you have completed. Since the built-in webcam is still not working correctly and the same error code 0xA00F4244 (0xC00DABED) is still appearing, we suggest that we check the camera privacy
    settings to see if the camera access is turned on. Kindly follow the steps below to check the camera privacy settings:

    • Press the Windows key + I to open the Settings app.
    • Near the top of the Settings app window is the search box, kindly type the word "webcam" or "camera".
    • From the list of results choose Camera privacy settings.
    • Make sure that "Let apps use my camera" toggle is set to On.

    We look forward to your response once you complete the steps.

    You can try these steps and see if it will make any difference:



    • Power cycle
    1. Turn off the phone then remove the back cover and the battery.

    2. Reinsert the battery and the back cover then turn on your phone.



    • Reset your camera settings
    1. Go to Settings.

    2. Swipe to Application settings.

    3. Choose Photos+camera.

    4. Select Reset camera.



    If the issue still persists, you can try to perform the steps provided on this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2749480. If the steps on the link will not work, I suggest that you
