If you have a scanner in your setup your webcam programme could be looking to that as your input source.

Are you connecting your Webcam through a USB or Parallel port.
If you are connecting to a USB port then unplug the camera before loading your software for it. When done connect your webcam and your computer will find new hardware and wait till it finishes installation and reports that your new hardware is now ready for use.

Some web cams have an infra-red/low light feature.
If this is activated the grrenish grainy picture will ensue[ check out camera controls/software.

I have just noticed a similar fault with my webcam and found that I could fix it by going into camera options and the Video capture filter then Video Proc Amp and the adjusting the Hue, Saturation and white balance.Its Worth a try anyway as its easy to put back to where it was if that fails.

Yes the led red light does go on.I tried all the install reinstall and usb plug taken out it lights up but no picture i tried camera options also.Will try some more of what you all said.But this has gone on for months,i got the world and mother demanding to see me on cam! Losing out on future girls and wife maybe here lol!" Its all since i got broadband,asked several people,websites,shop,tiscali and lots more to no avail cheers j!

My webcam had a similar problem over the weekend since installing a tv card. To resolve the problem i installed yahoo messenger and went to webcam options,clicked on camera source and reselected my webcam as source.

Maybe if you try that ?
