Hello,
When I connect to skype to maintain a videoconference my webcam screen starts up but then immediately disappears and my image is not shown. I can see the other person perfectly. Has this happened to anyone? Can anyone suggest a solution?
Thanks...

click on video set up and make sure your webcam is working correctly?

if it's not make sure it's turned on, some laptops have a key combination to turn the webcam off

if that doesn't help, go to system > hardware > device manager

check that there's a webcam connected to your PC, if webcam doesn't show up in device manager you got a hardware fault

have you always had this problem with webcam or did it start happening recently? if recently, then what did you do with laptop prior to problem presenting itself
