    Camera and Microphone Privacy

    Hi Moustafa,

    This issue occurs due to permission issue, driver issue, license for an app is out of sync with the license installed on the computer or if the app is not updated. To give permission to Camera and Microphone app, you may follow
    these steps:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Select Privacy.
    • Look for Camera, make sure that “Let apps use my camera” is turned On. You may choose the apps that can use your camera as well.
    • Go back to Privacy and select Microphone, make sure that “Let apps use my microphone” is turned On. You may choose the apps that can use your microphone as well.

    If the issue persists, we would suggest that you check out this

    Feel free to contact us if you have further inquiries.
     
  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.

    Why did my webcam light turn on?

    Hi Dylan, no this is not normal . . .

    It may be a hardware fault, it may be something else altogether . . .

    Open the Settings App

    Go to Privacy - Camera

    Turn off 'Allow apps to access my camera'

    Restart your laptop

    Is that light still on?

    If not, re-enable those apps that you do use your webcam for and restart your laptop

    Again, is that light still on?
