web cam fuzzy

  juedoc 20:06 01 Nov 2007

I have a logitech quick cam version 10.4. It was great at first but the picture is getting fuzzier by the day. Any ideas?

Have you moved the focusing ring?

  juedoc 21:38 01 Nov 2007

yes I have tried that.

Does anybody smoke near the camera, or even just in the same room - over time nicotine will coat the lens. Or has the camera been in a damp or steamy environment, perhaps causing moisture inside lens?

No nobody smokes in the house and the Pc is in the lounge so no damp or anything.

Is the camera still under warranty? If it is you could try for a replacement - or, if not, get another webcam, they really are very cheap these days.

Yes I could but I wanted to make sure it wasnt the PC first.

OK - can you get/borrow another webcam to check if it is the pc or not - though I doubt whether it is a problem with the pc.
