Default Mini 10v Webcam - 09-25-2009, 12:48 PM

First let me say although this is my first post I have been lurking around the mydellmini forums for a little while. I have found it to be a great resource and community. I have completed both the dual boot and ram upgrade guides and found them very easy to follow.
My current issue is with the mini 10v's webcam. When I use skype or other webcam applications my camera often seems dark. I realize the camera is only 1.3 MP but I was just wondering if anyone else was having this problem. I admit it might just be the lighting in my home but other webcams I have used in the same setting have been fine. Can anyone offer any tips or solutions. Is the dell webcam application necessary?

Yes. I'm sure it is faulty. I have three 10v's purchased recently from Dell Outlet UK- two give a very natural webcam image even under dark conditions - the third has a green tint to anything dark.

See my post ...

After several support calls, Dell agreed to collect it and replace the webcam - they collected it and it came back just three days later with some scratches on the cover and thumb prints all over the screen - BUT NO HARDWARE WAS REPLACED - only the webcam software drivers were re-installed!!

Dell's third party service agents here in the UK - QualXserv - did nothing to resolve the issue and they clearly have no respect for other folks property!

After a very angry service call from me - Dell are going to replace the unit - I'm waiting to see what arrives.

I have not faced any problem but you should get it replaced from the place you have purchased.
