I am at wits end with this camera. I opened it, placed it in the housing, plugged it all in and hooked it up to the computer. When using the windows camera app to adjust the camera focus it worked for about 5 seconds and then froze up. The following are all of the things I’ve tried so far to no avail.
I rebooted the laptop
I checked for and updated any out of date drivers
I checked for updates
I disabled the internal camera thinking there might be a conflict somewhere
I even double checked that the lens cover wasn’t on just because it’s turning out to be one of those days.
I’ve tried all of the usb ports on the laptop, (the ports work with anything else I plug into them so that got ruled out.)
The camera I was using before for my laser works just fine if that helps with the troubleshooting.
If I have to break the news to my husband that this non-refundable new camera doesn’t work and doesn’t even weigh enough to use as a paperweight, doghouse will be the understatement of the century!
