    Why is my camera not working? d509d668-9bdf-4b55-bf78-43fc6fdc570c?upload=true.png



    What happens is when I restart my laptop my camera works while it is just coming on. After it boots up completely, it is not detected. I go to device manager and it is not there after some time. I tried to troubleshoot it selecting the hardware option and there's nothing that can help. One time I restarted my laptop and went straight to the device manager to see if I could see it. I did and selected update driver and it said it's up to date. I can't figure it out at all. I'm on the latest windows version.

    :)

  2. camera not working

    If you have the camera connected to the computer, I would suggest that you disconnect the camera and then try to open the Camera app.



    If the camera app opens, follow the steps below:

    • Press “Windows key + C” from your keyboard to open “Charms bar”.
    • Select “Settings” option.
    • Select “Permissions” option.
    • Turn on “Allow this app to access your: Webcam and Microphone” option.
    • Lose the app by pressing “Alt key + F4” from your keyboard.
    • Reopen the Camera app.
    • Connect your camera and then check how this app works.
    Goodluck!

    Why is my camera not working?

    Camera does not work.

    To isolate your concern, we suggest that you uninstall the camera through Device Manager. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • In the Search box, type Device
      Manager
      and press Enter.
    • Navigate to Imaging devices.
    • Expand the Imaging devices tree by clicking on the adjacent arrow.
    • Look for your device, right-click then select Properties.
    • Click on the Driver tab, then choose Uninstall button.

    Let the system restarts to complete the process. Take note that the camera may not work if there are other applications which are still open that uses the same device, we suggest that after uninstalling the device you can proceed with launching the application
    to check if the issue persists.

    Give us an update with the outcome.
