My ASUS came with some Virtual Camera Software but it did not seem to work when I tried to turn on the camera, so I wrote, a AIR application, that did the trick, it seems to do what I need it to do for now, take a photo and allow me to save it on the desktop here is a link to it

All right guys!!! i think i've finally made the web cam work!!!
am using Asus n61jv, i bought it since 2010 but i've been suffuring from this problem for three years. But thanx to god i've finally made it work every time i need it.. In one word this problem is a mechanical problem caused by the manufacture and it has nothing with other softwares or updates.. what i did was so simple, i've squeezed the camera before running the program (in my case i've run lifeframe3 and smartlogon manager) and keep squeezing untill the camera start to show and then leave it, for most of cases it didn't stop by it's own, but if it did then simply close the program, squeeze and run. i now it's sound annoying but it is better than no camera at all.
I hope this will work for you all and good luck :)

No. what i did was a very simple trick, i apply a pressure on the area around the camera (outer cover), not on the camera it self.. but this pressure will truly effects on camera and leads it to run.
please keep me up, Good luck :)

I did it but it is not working. When I open windows 8 camera app it says "connect a camera" I have tried every driver but nothing. What you suggest me to do I bought this notebook a week ago?

did the camera ever worked for you before? and whats your laptop's manufacture?

in that case am afraid to tell you that you will have to take it to a customer care or technicals. cuase it seems that your issue is related to a manufacture fault. my problem is different than yours cause my camera was working whin i bought this laptop, but then after time it stopped workin and when i try to run it it says "camera is used by another program".
but here some tips that could help you:
1- go to your device manager ( you can find it by typing it in start menu)
2- click on imaging device and click on it
3- you will see the driver used by your camera
4- right click on it and then choose "uninstall"
5- restart you computer and then your computer will start to install the driver automatically
6- wait until installation is done, then try to run your camera

the problem is that I don't have "imaging device" on my device manager I have checked that before

did you try to install a driver for you camera before? if not then try to find the proper driver for your camera then install it, by doing this the "imaging device" should show up again.

yes, I have tried every driver version of the camera from the asus site.

will, i think you have nothing to do except to take your laptop to a customer care, because it's obvious that it has somthing with cable since the warning message you got is "connect a camera" as well as your keybord lighting is off.
am really sorry for that, but i hope that every thing will work great as soon as possible.

This solution worked for me!! I downloaded drivers multiple times and nada and I didn't have high hopes to for this to work but it did! Praise God! God Bless, Jesus Love~ Woot! BTW, my computer is an ASUS 1005HA with a 2.0. UVC Web camera.
