  • Satellite M200 - Chicony webcam not compatible with Skype


    I have a Satellite M200 series and my Webcam Chicony works very well with YM. When I tried to use it on Skype, he'll tell me that "Skype has not found video source preferred. Webcam can be used in another application. Then I tried to move to the tools in Skype and checked the video settings, I changed the cam of default for a Chicony USB 2.0, still the same error message. The next thing I did was open the software assistant camera, but by clicking on the buttons will do nothing. I can open the device itself. So, I updated the device driver in Device Manager and the result is that I had the best and the last driver installed. Still not working in Skype.

    Any suggestions? I'll be very grateful for any help. Thank you.


    I think that Skype is one of the best applications to work with the webcam. I use it on the first day of purchase and there is no problem at all.
    What you can do is to restart your laptop, switch-webcam help software, start the Skype and try to configure the webcam in Skype settings again.

    He has to work. It works on my Satellite P200 and my Satellite U400 friends. He has to work in your case too.

  • Satellite A215 S4767 Chicony USB 2.0 camera does not work with Skype

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S4767 with Vista Ultimate 32.
    I checked the drivers and they work, I have 10 Diretcx and it works.

    When I open the camera program, it works well.
    I put the camera program is not at initial start-up of laptop.
    I start the laptop, Skype open and figure that the camera does not work and say to check what I've done.

    Yesterday, I had installed the Skype version and the camera has functioned well, I upgraded Skype version and the camera started not to work.


    > Yesterday I had installed version Skype and the camera has functioned well, I upgraded Skype version and the camera started not to work.

    This means that it is not software for laptop problem or a webcam, but maybe it s Skype related issue.
    You should check if the webcam has been chosen correctly in Skype video settings.

    If this does not work, uninstall the version of the system, reboot the laptop, clean the registry using CCleaner (freeware tool) and then after reboot again to install the again if not check the a version that worked correctly in the past.

  • Satellite P500-127: microphone or sound does not work with Skype

    Hello, team Toshiba,

    Recently bought a new laptop.
    However the microphone or the (pebble connexant high definition) sound driver does not work correctly when you use Skype. Also read about in various forums such as the Skype forum.
    People ran into similar problems such as:

    Usually, we can speak of a little more than 20 seconds, but the call will be at a random time between 1 and 15 minutes. The strange part is that sometimes the quality of the call is good, but more often my friend can't get along * half of what I say * while I don't usually have a problem to hear what was said. The video works so my friend can see talking me but can simply not really hear what I say.
    Before the fall of the call usually freezes for a few seconds and then Skype crashes sometimes. We tried to talk together without the video, but the problem remains.

    I also found a suggestion by the toshiba service, just to simply increase the volume under the Panel etc, but it does not work either...

    Can you please help me on this one?
    Cannot use Skype at all as she just to boring for everyone I talk... The quality is fair to poor.

    Thank you very much

    I have the Skype m user too and to be honest, everything works fine!
    I can use my internal webcam as well!
    But I m using Win XP with Skype

    I assume you are using Win 7 and Skype

    To be honest, I doubt s number of Toshiba laptop
    If it would be a matter of (audio driver) laptop so you have seen the same problems recording and creating audio files... but I doubt that will happen...

    Therefore, it must be a software problem possibly a combination of Skype, Win 7 and driver Conexant
    Who knows

    But as I said above my Skype works well with Win XP!

  • Microphone and speakers do not work with Skype in my laptop

    Original title: audio and microphone

    My microphone does not work it is built into my laptop. When you use Skype I can't hear the party that I talk and they don't hear me. I don't know if my speakers and microphone are set correct. Help, please.

    The problem only occurs with Skype?
    Follow the steps mentioned below.
    Step 1:
    You can use the connection from your sound card line to connect a portable music player, microphone or other device for audio input to your computer.
    Most sound cards have at least a line-out port to connect speakers and a line-in port where you can connect to an audio input device.
    However, the line of connection to your sound card is disabled by default. This means that if you plug an audio device into this port, it will not produce any sound on your computer until you enable the sound to connect online.

    To enable sound for the line
    a. open Control Panel > click on sounds
    b. click on the playback tab, click speakers and then click Properties.
    c. click the levels tab, and then under online, click the Mute button to turn on the sound for the connection line.
    The line of connection is disabled by default.

    Step 2:
    Check the microphone in the sound recording.

    I've searched forums and the problem may be due to compatibility between Windows 7 and Skype.

    Has anyone else had this issue or know how to solve?

  • Satellite Pro L550 - Microphone does not work with Skype


    I recently installed Skype on my laptop and I went through all the tests to make sure that I can hear and can be heard. My two speakers and microphone are working fine. However when I go to use Skype to chat with people they can not hear me but I can hear them. Any thoughts on what I can do?

    Thanks in advance.


    When you open Skype and go to tools > Options > Audio settings can you see a green bar volume when you say something?
    You selected the automatically adjust microphone settings?

    Usually, if you check this option Skype will adjust the Microphone automatically that other people can you hear you properly.

  • My microphone does not work with Skype.

    Whenever I have someone call on Skype, he put mute my microphone. Therefore, Skype gives me an error "can access sound card."  I tried everything to fix this, check if the caps were in the right holes, to reformat my computer and everything in between.  All my drivers are up to date, I can record my voice on a tape recorder and hear him read.  I thought that maybe there was something in the control panel I have not tried, all of the peripheral input-output boxes are on the right thing, I have C-Media CM6501 Like Sound Device.

    It must be cut to stop your own voice echoing Skype makes this car.

    go to tools-options-audio Skype settings - and check the settings also do Skype test call.

  • Satellite A660-12E - Webcam not working only not with Skype


    When you use the camera directly integrated on the satellite, it works pretty well. When you try to use it with Skype, all I get is the heart full screen. I tried different settings, but nothing happens. Therefore, I use a logitech webcam while searching for a solution.

    Anyone know how to configure it to work with Skype?

    Thanks in advance,


    Hey Buddy,

    I've never heard of this problem you can post a screenshot?

    Well, I think if the problem works with Camera Assistant Software, it s a problem with Skype. So, check the configuration of webcam for Skype and make sure that you use the latest version of Skype.
