DV9646 Web Cam Problems

  Mems 22:28 12 Jan 2008


I've got a bit of a problem with my DV9646 Web cam, It's only worked twice now and it says it can't be used, Wehn useing Quickplay it says it's there but doesn't allow me to view myself, i was wondering if anyone else has had this problem? i love the machine it's so nice but with the webcam not working i'm like errrr why. This is my second machine with the same fault. I've spoken to HP and they told me how to fix it and it worked but now it won't work at all. I spoke to HP again and i asked them if they had a problem with this happening and they said yes. So my main question is has anyone had this fault and fixed it or what can i do to fix it?

I just took my dv9605 back today after the dvd playback just showed me lines upon lines upon lines..PC World in Thurrock Essex said its the 4th one they have had back that day and it was only 10am!!!!All with the same problem.I can see you lot discussing the 9646..Does the reader accept the Sony memorystick card reader or something similar?Also i take it the dvd player works ok now?As Currys didnt have any in stock so i couldnt test it.
