Microsoft Lifecam 5000. Whenever I'm recording video with her, during playback, I hear clicking on and a beep sound when the camera focuses

Hello, I have problems with my Microsoft Lifecam 5000. Whenever I'm recording video with her, during playback, I hear clicking on and a beep sound when the camera is focusing. If I put it to my ear, the sound is low but I can still here it when it focuses.


Thanks for posting in the Microsoft Community Forum.

I understand from your description, that you get beep when the camera is focusing.

To better understand the question, please answer the following questions:

1. have you made changes on the computer before this problem?
2. is it works much earlier?

Come back with more information to help you better.

I suggest you to download and install the latest drivers for Microsoft Lifecam 5000 from the link provided:

You can even try recording by reducing the volume on the computer to the minimum level (mute) just to check if beep occurs.

For more information, see the link below:

Hope the above information is helpful. If you have any question back to us, we are happy to help you.

Thank you.

  • You Tube, after that 11 seconds the video stops, in all and is no sound through the speakers. No noise in the music of cd too

    For example: in You Tube, after 11 seconds the video stops, in all and is no sound through the speakers. No noise in the music of cd too.

    If you get no audio cd, youtube or anything else, you must first check in the volume control that you are using the sound card, you are connected, that nothing is on mute and volume is sufficient, or install the drivers for your sound card.

    Video YouTube can be that your internet connection is slow or too much peoole try to watch the same video, save it to your hard drive and then watch or, give him a minute or two to download in the buffer before you start watching.

  • Satellite A660: how to record videos with USB webcam?

    I recently bought a Satellite A660, which has a built-in webcam. Using the Toshiba provided video application I can record videos, but I find the clarity and brightness of the rather poor image, even in good lighting.

    I have a USB webcam that I plugged in and tested for example in Skype, and he produces images much better under the same conditions. My question is: How can I know Toshiba video application to use instead of the built-in USB webcam? I can't find any settings where I can choose which camera to use.

    If this is not possible, do I need to install other video recording software? Windows 7 does not have all the applications where you can simply record a video from a webcam (I thought Windows Move Maker to do that, but apparently not).

    I just want to be able to record videos of my USB webcam - any suggestions on the best way to proceed would be welcome.

    Thank you


    Put I don't think something like this is possible. Pre-installed Camera Assistant Software is obviously designed to work with the built in cam only.
    What you need is a third party software that you can use for this application.

    Google around a bit and visit a few video forums where you can pick up some info on it.

  • When shooting video, it is necessary to turn off Steadyshot when the camera is on a tripod?

    When shooting video with a NEX - 5n, 6 or 7 on a tripod, it is necessary to disable the Steadyshot in the menu, or is the camera supposed to sense that she is on a tripod (like the small Sony Hv9x)? I ask because sometimes my video tripod with these cameras mounted seems to have a slight pulsation or flutter, I can't explain.

    The SteadyShot function does not serve a purpose, while the camera is mounted on a tripod. Given that the tripod is stationary when you take a picture, there is no excessive movement to the camera. It is not necessary to use the SteadyShot function in this situation.

    Sometimes involuntary blur can occur when you use SteadyShot, while the camera is on a tripod.

  • 500-300na Pavilion: problem with Pavilion 500-300na (mother of Memphis-S) - Dead / no beeps sound and video

    Hello - I hope someone can help me please

    I have desktop PC HP Pavilion 500-300na.
    The PC worked very well without problem - I went for a stay of two weeks during which the PC was not in use and power was turned off. I'm back from vacation and the PC does not work now.

    When you press the power button, the LED lights up, CPU fan, electric fan and the two spin system fan. There is no video. There is no beep error codes. What is it - actually dead.
    If I hold the button for about 5 to 10 seconds, the fans run down, but the rest spinning CPU fan.

    What I've done so far:

    Tried another monitor.
    Tried a different power supply.
    Powered by the motherboard on its own with any other disconnected.
    Taken the Cmos battery on the motherboard for 1 min and replaced it.
    Clean the dust from the fans (they were not so bad as to be honest).

    The machine worked with in PCI16 slot video card - I removed this for the test. As I can't get into the Bios, I can't put in the work of the "mother video card." Not sure if it is a problem.
    The unit has a strip of 8 GB of ram DDR3 - I tried this in another location without any changes.
    I have not tested the ram. I have not tested the CPU or deleted one of the fans / heat sinks.

    Thanks for any help you can provide

    Okay, I think THAT I managed to fix it and understand what the problem was.

    I think the problem was double - first of all, before the problem started, Technical Assistance from HP have a BIOS update and download. I think that this update changed the Startup Configuration in the BIOS to "ENABLED" Secure.

    Not really a problem. . BUT...

    The video card I was running was a riser and secure boot DISABLED neeeded and legacy support ENABLED.

    I have reset the BIOS using the jumper (bios password) information – I also did a 'blind' changing information from the bios to switch to the use of the video of the motherboard (bash F10 for 10 seconds at the start, then three arrows down, then two returns... This pass BIOS to "Apply default settings and exit"). I don't know who really helped, but the machine comes up in life.

    I put the information here, in which case another experience a similar problem.


  • Video glitch: flashing during playback multi-came

    Mac OSX Yosemite 10.10.2.  Maxed out iMac 2013.

    Latest version of Patch PP 2014.2 Adobe build 8.2.0 (65)

    I'm having a problem with my multicam.  When I perform a roll or slide edit, it causes the program monitor (which is multi-cam mode) to waver between a black screen, or a previous edition.  It won't play either when this happens.  Sometimes I can solve the problem by opening a non-multicam sequence, and then clicking back to the multicam sequence, but more often than otherwise, I must quit smoking.  In a 30 min multicam, in this case however often I have to change my tool, which can be 10 times.

    Anyone else had this?  Is my GPU on my Mac drivers?  I have no idea how to update these drivers on mac, traditionally, this is done for me through App Store and not often because the drivers are not updated as often as the Windows one.  This has never been a problem on the Mavericks.  Someone else?

    Hi Laurent,.

    Try this:

    Please go to file > project settings > General and change the rendering engine video software of Mercury playback engine only. Click Ok, and then select Remove previews.

    Let me know if it helps.

    Thank you
