  1. Lenovo Camera


    Hi, I've had my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 260 for about 4 years now and I've recently encountered a problem with it. I enabled Camera privacy mode once and when I disabled it, my camera stopped working properly. When I'm in a google meet call or when I try to use it in any way, it just doesn't work. It works for a few seconds and then turns off and keeps turning off and on for about a minute then completely shuts down. I need my camera for online classes, so I need to resolve this issue ASAP. Please help.


    P.S.

    I'm on windows 10

    :)

    Lenovo Y510P (Unsupported for Win 10) Camera Driver Needed


    Hello and welcome ksuthayya have had a look for a driver for your machine but there are only drivers listed up to 8.1 not 10.
    Camera Driver for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) - IdeaPad Y410p, Y510p - Lenovo Support (US)

    Another Google found that there was no camera driver support for 10. for a similar Lenovo Lenovo Y510P (Unsupported for Win 10) Camera Drive... - Lenovo Community

    Having said that my old Toshiba was in the same position and yet when I installed 10 Windows updates found drivers for stuff not listed on the Toshiba site.

    Now a suggestion would be to get a clip on camera and install it via USB or like wise because it would have it owns driver. If my memory serves me right they are not that expensive - but still annoying eh?.

  3. Lenovo Easy Camera not working with Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.


    In most of the cases webcam might not work if it is not compatible with the generic driver or if supporting software is not installed.


    I would suggest you to update the Camera drivers from the
    device manger.


    • Press Windows + X key and select Device manager.
    • Select Imaging devices and select Lenovo Easy Camera.
    • Right click and select Update the driver.
    • Follow on screen steps and check.
    If it doesn't help then I would suggest you to check in the manufacturer's website for compatible Camera drivers and install it and also any supporting webcam software:

    Lenovo Support:
    http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products?tabName=Downloads&linkTrack=Mast:SubNav:SupportLenovo Camera :product


    If this doesn’t work then follow the same way and Uninstall the camera driver and restart the machine.


    Windows 10 will automatically detect the Camera while you use it and installs the required drivers for it.


    Keep us posted to help you better.
