Portege Z20t: No rear camera available

Question: Portege Z20t: No rear camera available

The camera apps "Camera" and "TruCapture" on my Windows 10 Z20T-B2112 don't offer the rear camera, only the front web cam.
Any idea how I can fix this? Is there a specific driver needed?

Hey cant get my position with bing maps, here maps, oder mapfactor navigator, even GPS Information Apps cant show position when WLAN is off.

I bought this for Stand Alone GPS Features.
Updated Win 8.1 to the latest Updates. Still no location Service in APPs.

GPS is on in Windows 8.1 Settings, i allowed the apps to use the gps/position.
All latest Toshiba service updates are installed. Even with a SIM CARD i get no GPS.

Only in WLan i get a position..

So return this is it damaged? BTW must work tomorrow drive around the world. When its not working i must return it.

Tested here Maps und the windows maps app and mapfatorGPS.
none gets a fix when wlan is off.

Answer:Portege Z20t-b GPS no working

In the description of Portege Z20t-b-xxx the “Assisted GPS” is mentioned.

The assisted GPS is part of the 3G module… so it should work using the 3G connection too.

Did you test it?

Hi,
I have a Z20t-C-15M. SN 5H071828H. Online specs says there's a battery inside the docking keyboard and a battery inside the tablet.
Battery indicators is saying Battery # 1 is not present whereas battery led indicator in the keyboard dock displays no light (nor white nor orange).
Battery indicators is saying battery # 2 present and led indicator is white on the tablet.
Is this a normal behavior or an issue ? Why can'I get the secondary battery ?
From the specs :
Battery Life up to 9h30min tablet only (Mobile Mark? 2014 running Win10)
up to 19h tablet & keyboard (Mobile Mark? 2014 running Win10)


Cheers.

I?ve got a Z20t-B-10C with a 256 GB SSD Samsung MZNTE256HMHP, which is a SATA M.2 2280 module.

I assume, I could replace this one by any other SATA M.2 2280 module, like the new SanDisk X400 1 TB (also named SD8SB8U-1T00-1122 or SD8UB8U-1T00-1122, don?t know the difference yet).

Does anyone know, where I could also replace it by a PCIe M.2 2280 module (also called NVMe), like the Samsung SSD SM951-NVMe 512 GB M.2 (MZVPV512HDGL) or the Plextor M6e 512 GB M.2 (PX-G512M6E)? Do I have to look for the M.2 ?B? and/or ?M? key?

Answer:Portege Z20t SSD upgrade – SATA M.2 only?

I dont think the notebook supports PCIe, you should get a SATA drive to ensure compatibility.

I undocked the screen from the keyboard without issue (using the "eject hardware safely" icon), but when reattaching the screen, it does not recognize the keyboard. Physical connection is 100%, but no communication at all. Usually it dings and switches from tablet mode to PC mode. Not this time. Interestingly, it DOES know that the keyboard is being charged, but only "Battery 2" is present.

Any ideas before sending it to the dreaded "Depot"?

Hi,



I am interested to see if anyone else is experiencing this issue. Since upgrading Windows 10 to the latest Version 1511, Build 10586 released in November by Microsoft i am having strange issues with the Conexant HD Audio device.

The issue being when i am playing stereo music and i encounter a lower volume section of the music (i.e - strings etc) the sound switches from Stereo to Mono and when the volume of the track increases it again reverts to stereo. Sometimes it switched back and forth regularly which is irritating.


I have the latest DTS Studio Sound (1.2.41) for Windows 10 and the correct Conexant HD Audio driver from Toshiba (8.66.5.52) and this is the exact same driver/software version i had prior to updating Windows 10 to the latest version so the issue has definately been caused by the update.


To get around the issue i have installed the generic High Defination Audio Device drivers from Microsoft and the issue no longer occurs but i obvisuly can no longer use DTS Studio Sound with these drivers.


I am hoping Toshiba will be releasing a new DTS Studio Sound and/or driver to correct this issue.


Thanks in advance


Shaun

Good morning, after using the Lenovo x61t for over 7 jears it is time to find a new one.

The z20t seems to be the only one which fits my needs:
* convertible
* track stick
* at least full HD display (and not a mirror one!)
* VGA
* native(!) Ethernet

The only drawback is the little ssd (max. 256) and that is only HDMI 1,4, no 2.0 (CPU limitation) or Display Port to get [email protected]

Then I stumbled over a Z20t-B-10C-SE with a 500 GB SSD ! Is this real or a fake? It was listed yesterday with 16 GB RAM, today with only 8 GB RAM.

If I'm allowed to dream, I would add these ones to the z20T:
* the third mouse button to the trackstick for scrolling (this is something I use almost everytime))
* Perhaps putting 16 GB RAM to the notebook
* HDMI 2.0 or Displayport - this problem is solved itself via an upgrade to Skylake which provides HDMI 2.0
* Having PCe-Lanes (one would be enough) in the dock connector
The last one enables to have more keyboard variants:
* the one which is offered today
* one with a ExpressCard slot (additional card reader, more USB ports, TV cards, special internet connection cards, interface cards for data aquisition etc.)
* one with a ExpressCard slot & second SSD/HDD bay (e.g. for a "cheap & really big HDD")

Additional, a "small & tiny" one for people for which every gramm is important could be nice (no, I prefer the "standard" one which comes with the z20t a lot over the tiny ones which comes with many other tables)... Read more

Answer:Portege Z20t-B-10C-SE - hardware specification question

Your “dreams” sounds good

- The additional 3rd mouse button… well I never required such button on my touchpad… so for me such button would be useless…

- 16GB RAM… definitely big YES… but unfortunately this Portege Z20t-B-10C supports max 8GB RAM… this limitation appears due to the chipset/CPU

- Espress Card slot is could be a nice-to-have feature but I think this kind of interface is already more or less in decline…

Last April I bought a Port?g? Z20T-C 13Q (PT16AE-02J03LCE) and a Stylus Pen (PA5133U-1EUC), with the intention of starting to use this device (as in the advertising itself of the product is announced) Other uses, take notes and draw schemes.

Unfortunately, I saw from the beginning that the Stylus Pen did not work. I thought the reason was that neither the Wacom drivers nor the TruNote program were installed. There was no major problem, because I downloaded those files from the support page for my Port?g?. After installing them, my computer still does not recognize the pressure of my fingers, let alone the presence of the Stylus (maybe because I have chosen the wrong stylus).


Please: What should I do? How do I get to use my computer as it is initially advertised on the website? What Stylus do I need?

Curiously, on an Amazon website we recommend this Stylus Pen as Toshiba Portege Z20T Stylus Pen, and for that reason I bought it from the Toshiba dealer along with the computer.

Thank you for answering my questions.

Ciao!

I own a Portege Z20T B-10C which is a rather nice machine, but has one annoying flaw: The screen gets scratched by virtually any contact. For example, I can't use the "emergency pen" for touch input or to write on the screen as it causes scratches. Also, the screen has already collected a series of scratches shaping the outline of the touchpad, i.e. supposedly produced when closing the laptop. Hence, you can't really use the laptop the way it should be used and I fear that a few months from now the screen will be filled with scratches.

While I'm waiting for my notebook shop to decide whether this is a warranty case or not, I wonder if anyone of you owns this model and has come across the same problem?

Cheers,
Stefan

Answer:Portege Z20T: Screen becomes scratched by virtually anything

I have exactly the same problem. I've only been using the machine since July and already it's quite damages. Basically the screen rubs against the dock and I have the imprint in the outline of the touchpad. I'm concerned that they will soon damaging the images captured by the camera since the outline of the touch pad is right over the lens.


Toshiba is so far unwilling to repair this and I've included the response from my account rep below. Frankly, I was shocked since this is such an expensive computer and the cause of the problem seems so obvious. I was also disappointed that they didn't consider this thread when evaluating my case since it is the first result when one Googles 'portege scratched screen'.
Hello Eric,

I sent your email with the pictures of your laptop screen scratches. They replied back saying that the scratches are not due to a manufacture defect and there have not been another reports of other Z20t touchscreens getting scratches like this on the screen, so there is nothing they can do to replace it. Our Customer Service Manager will usually just make the call to replace it, if the laptop is with the first 90 days, which is 2 ? months past the normal return policy. He was not able to get the approval to replace it.

I am glad that you were able to get this laptop back up and running. Please keep that Business Technical Support number handy for any future needs, which I hope that you do not ever have to use it in the future. Please give me ... Read more

Hi
I've got a z20t-B-107. Lovely machine, upgraded to win 10, all working fine - I had to download a new Wacom driver to get the 'left-click' to work with the pen.

I'm using it in tablet mode to digitise some data points on a map, and to sketch with the pen. However, when I rest my hand on the screen it 'activates' the touch screen and makes things go crazy. I really need to be able to temporarily switch off the touch digitiser and have only the Wacom digitiser running, and if I can toggle it on/off somehow that would be useful. Otherwise i need to use the pen in a very unnatural position to avoid touching the screen with my hand.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note which uses the Wacom type digitiser - it doesn't seem to suffer from this, as soon as it detects the pen near the screen it appear to switch off the touch part.

I would be grateful for any help - I've tried search engines but they only seem to give results about touch pads, and that's completely different...

Many thanks in advance

Answer:Portege Z20t - can I turn touch screen OFF?

Hi,

I use a Z20t too (but with Win8.1) and have the same problem. I have decided to switch off the touch complete. It is not a good solution, but a good working with OneNote is only with switching off the touch functionality possible.
Maybe this is a possible solution for you.
In Win8.1 I switched off the driver in the device manager.

I found the following steps here:
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...d55591d?auth=1

1. Right-click and select "All Apps" at the lower right corner, then select Control Panel
2. Select Hardware and Sound
3. Select Device Manager
4. Select Human Interface Devices
5. From the list, look for the driver for the touch screen. This can be tricky since on my tablet they are all listed as "USB Input Device" and there are 3 of them. I found it by disabling and re-enabling one at a time until the touch screen stopped responding. You can also identify the touch screen by checking the Properties | Details and get the "Hardware Ids" then do a search online to see what the device is. In my case, the touch screen has the ID USB/VID_0EEF&PID_7302.
6. Once you know which is the touch screen, disable the driver and the touch screen should no longer work
Enable this device to make the touch screen work again.

Hi,

I have a Toshiba Portege Z20T-C. I purchased it 6 months ago. After 3 months it developed a white ghost spot on the screen (approx 1cm across) which I now understand to be a pressure mark.

I don't actually use the touch screen of the laptop so I was surprised about this.

I wondered if any other Z20T owners have had this problem. Since I don't use the touch screen I wondered if it was a common fault with this model.

I did send the laptop back to be looked at under Toshiba's repair and warranty, but was told it wasn't covered and it'd cost me ?528 to repair.

I paid this. It took 3 months to get the machine back and the new screen has a similar pressure mark, just on a different part of the screen. Plus I have a lot of nice scratches all over my (was as new) laptop.
I suspect the pressure mark was caused by the engineer whilst reassembling the machine and pressing on the screen.

The Toshiba repair company say I can send it back to be re-assessed. They won't guarantee to fix it under their 90 day warranty - only to assess it.

I certainly won't spend another ?528 and wait another 3 months.
So, I've had a very expensive laptop for 3 months that's now pretty useless.
I can't say I'm having the best experience as a Toshiba customer.

Does anyone have any advice?

ThinkPad Super Low Profile TrackPoint Cap Set, Part number:4XH0L55146. this is the cap fits to thinpad x1 yoga.

since having z20t for the last year and half. I still can not find any other 2-in-1 to be better. this comes from someone who had previously only used the most expensive thinkpad models and updating every 1-2 years.

however, the trackpoint cap drives me a bit crazy as I rely on it most time as a 10+ year thinkpad user. it is tiny, needs a lot of force to move, and after a while, the surface becomes smooth and easy to slip.

I did tons of search and bought quite a few replacement caps to try, none worked. and it bugs me that toshiba does not sell a replacement either. so one day when the cap wears out or damaged, I would need to buy a new keyboard dock at least.

more importantly, as it is bigger and have many dimple on it. it is actually much much better user experience. I would say now it would give similar feeling as the best thinkpad trackpoint now. no slip, needs much less force to move around.

Hi

When I turn the display off, the touchscreen and digitizer are still enabled, so, if I touch the screen, the display comes back on. Any way to solve this?

Also, not sure if related, if I turn the screen off and leave it overnight, the battery drops by 25-30% in about 8 hours. Same thing happens when I leave the screen turned off for a short period of time, the battery just doesn't last. Not sure if its because the touchscreen and digitizer are still on.

I tried to install the new BIOS from the drivers page on toshiba.eu.
That BIOS sadly does not work ...? Why?

Anyway... the problem i had and i wanted to have fixed is:

Bitlocker encrypted my whole drive.
it starts correctly and displays the keyboard.
GPO: Keyboard Slates (or something like that) is activated.
BUT: Touchscreen does not work. That means.. i can see the keyboard but it does not work.
thats why i wanted to update my bios but it says it is not working on my computer... well thats frustrating...
why offer the bios update when it does not work at all... or is it some sort of windows 7 only? cant imagine that tbh.

i guess the only problem is the bios but i could be wrong (z20t-b works on same settings for example)

Hello,

on a Z20t-B-10C with one minor modification (upgraded to a 500GB Samsung SSD, dropped recovery partition, but not the EFI partition), I have the following issue:
When the BestCrpyt Pre-boot screen shows up, I cannot directly enter the passphrase, but have to 1) hit at least one key 2) wait for approx. 10 sec. 3) delete the entered key(s) and then 4) enter the passphrase.
Thought it may have to do with a delayed interaction between tablet and keyboard dock, but a USB keyboard directly connected to the tablet, not the dock, shows the same behaviour. Trying different things in the Bios (switching to UEFI legacy, etc.), with no effect. This phenomenon is, according to their support, not known to the BestCrypt people. Operation system is Windows 10 64bit, all drivers and bios are recent.
Has anybody else observed this behaviour? Or experience with other full disk encryption which are compatible with a UEFI bios?
Thank you in advance,
Kind regards,
Rob

Answer:How do I access my screen/front camera and how do I turn on the flash on the rear camera?

When you have the main camera switched on the main screen you will notice 3 dots, tap on that to access settings and in that you have to tap front camera to get access the front cam.
For the torch if you swipe right from the main screen select your torch app and in that you will find a switch icon to turn flash on and off.

After the tablet does a complete restart from scratch, does the rear camera option work?

On my table they do both work only after a startup from scratch (restart, shift + shutdown, or fast startup in Windows 10 disabled).

Tried the two soft resets. The power button and the volume down button pressed down simultaneously and the turning off and pulling out the battery for 5 mins. Tried the first one about 5 times and no effect. Tried the second one and the camera worked for about three times before not starting again.
Don't know what to do. Just had the phone for a week and three days. Help!

Answer:My Camera, both front and rear, won't start in any app. How can I fix it?

Bring your phone, whatever model it is, back to the store and try to have it replaced especially since it is still new.
If the store won't replace your phone, and then if your phone is a Windows Phone, you could try using the Lumia Software Recovery Tool or Windows Phone Recovery Tool to reinstall the OS of your phone.
If that doesn't work, then you would need to have your phone repaired in-warranty.

When I ordered my Helix (7/3/2013) it was advertised as having a 5MP rear camera with autofocus AND LED Flash. This was described in the features section. There was also a picture of the LED flash on the rear view of the Helix on the product page. When I received my Helix (Model 3697CTO) I was surprised to discover that there was no flash. I talked to many people at Lenovo about this until finally I was told by tech support that the Helix does not come with flash. I find it hard to believe that this error would remain on the website. The flash is quoted on many websites as well as this PDF of all thinkpad specs. Note that the PDF does say 3698 instead of my 3697. Does anyone else have a Helix with a rear camera LED flash? Can anyone tell me where the communication broke down?

Hi everyone, I recently have a problem with the rear camera. There is about 75% chance the rear camera will not start properly. It happens randomly. One way to re-appear this problem is try to "change camera" in the win8.1 camera app. Usually, after I switched from the front camera to the rear one for 2-3 times, the rear camera just died. The green camera LED will still turn on, but nothing shows on the screen -- all black. And you will never know when it will come back... Sometimes after reboot... Sometimes just after several mins....I feel like the rear camera can not be power on for whatever reason, because even when I disable/enable the rear camera in the device manager. Sometimes, it shows "This device is not able to power on" or something similar.--- This is not a front camera problem which has been asked frequently. My front camera always works very well.--- It is caused by the camera app, since I tested other apps, such as Skype -- same problem.--- I think this might be a driver issue. I install/uninstall/reinstalled the latest driver on Lenovo website. Doesn't work. Anything else I can do? This problem is really annoying. Please feel free to reply even if you have no solution but the same problem. I want to know if this is a common issue. Thanks in advance.

I have the thinkpad helix for two months.  The front facing camera works fine, but rear facing camera is very slow: focus slow, and if move the camera a little, picture refreshes very very slow. I thought this was the problem of driver, so I updated to the latest driver yesterday. However, the problem is still there. This makes the camera useless. Do you also have this problem? Is this a hardware or software problem? How to fix this? Thanks!

Rear camera is putting  a stripe in pictures.  Works fine for video, preview of still photos perfect.Take the picture and as the photos "swooshes" to the left, you see that the saved image has a stripe about a third of the way up.  For some reason, the saved image is copying the bottom 5% or so of the image, and "pasting" that slightly offset into the bottom third of the photo. Taking a PrtSc copies a perfct image into the clipboard, (includes camera icons). Changing image aspect, disablig Camera Plus does nothing. At least three other people posted on a Microsoft page about this, seems to have arrived with 8.1 upgrade. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling both drivers, no joy?

One of the great features of onenote is recording audio/video while taking notes.On the Helix, this works as expected with the front camera and just audio. However, when switched to the rear camera it looks like it is recording, but in fact there is only one still there. (It is an improved with windows 8.1 though. In Windows 8 OneNote did not even detect the rear camera). Has anyone a clue why this is not working? Interesting detail: If i try to record a video in the standard camera app, I get the error message that something went wrong .... Thanks,Ruud

I just purchased a Helix thanks to the 17% discount (summer eCoupon+student discount) It'll be my workhorse laptop for uni, and plan to record lectures with it. According to Lenovo live-chat reps, I can NOT record with the rear facing camera whilst writing notes.(Camera or write notes, not both)As a work around, could I record with the rearcam in OneNote while writing notes? If someone knows, or if you could kindly test the function out for me, I'd GREATLY appreciate it!(click the Insert Tab --> record Video) I'm afraid OneNote will use the front-facing cam by default, which will defeat the purpose.... Thanks in advance!

Answer:Helix recording lectures with rear camera

Wow 100 views and no response, Amazing community you guys have here!  Anyways...I've decided that purchasing a Helix simply for its rear camera is a monumental waste of money.I could always get one once the Haswell equipped models arrive.. So instead, I'll be purchasing a GoPro or a Sony AS-10 and use it to film my lectures and for other action-cam duties!The camera quality will be leaps and bounds better than anything on a tablet.I'll probably go with the AS10/15 due to its slim profile.I could place it in a pencil bag such as this one, and leave the camera lens barely popping out.http://twotip.com/media/cache/jansport-pencil-pouch-black-0c83f9da30bc67cb929d219c6f59d24f.jpg If any other students are in a situation similar to my own, I highly suggest going through this route!

Hi All,
I'm having terrible experience with Lumia 730, I bought a phone 2 days ago and I noticed that the filter on the ear piece is missing, when I approached Nokia Care they said it's a manufacturing defect and asked the vendor to replace the phone. Today I got a replacement and in this phone the rear camera doesn't work. Microsoft Camera/Nokia Camera doesn't work, they just open and then get closed without doing anything. I tried resetting the phone 3 times, still it didn't help. The front cam works fine in Nokia Selfie app, but when I click on switch camera it gets stuck there. Now I have to go to the Vendor and then to Nokia Care again. :(
I was using Lumia 520 before, but I decided to switch to Lumia 730 as 520 was intermittently rebooting itself. Pretty bad experience.
I'm pretty sad that the brand I trust the most is no more providing good quality phones.

Answer:Why isn't my Nokia Lumia 730 rear camera working?

They handed you another defective/refurbished phone, it appears. 730 is a cool phone and it certainly does not have such defects. Just have it replaced again and hopefully you'll get the perfect one then:-)

But now I'm not sure if it is only software problem or may be some how hardware (video is recorded is fine).

I'm currently on a laptop so I bought the Creative Sound Blaster 5.1 Pro (usb soundcard). I really wasn't paying attention since it was plug n play, but when I tried to adjust the equalizer it wasn't working (in the Creative Console). So I go into the windows "speaker setup", and only the Front Left and Right will have a sound coming out of them individually. When I play music, all the speakers have sound but it's not as powerful as they were on my desktop using another soundcard.

I'm using the Logitech Z-5500 speakers. Everything is plugged in on the subwoofer properly, and I have tried the 6ch Direct AND Optical. Both have the same issues.

Like I said before, the Creative Console has no effect on my speakers whatsoever. Any ideas?

Thanks.
 

Answer:Rear Right, Rear Left, Sub, and center speakers won't work?

Ensure the default audio device is now the Creative USB card. The speakers should be connected to the USB card. And the speaker configuration, setup, and testing can be done in the Creative software.

Quick question - will a keyboard for a Portege S100 work in a Portege M100?

Layout looks similar; albeit a different colour.

Answer:Will a keyboard for a Portege S100 work in a Portege M100?

Hi

I think you cannot use the same keyboard because the Portege S100 supports the an-easy-to-use 84-key (US) or 85-key (UK) keyboard and the Portege M100 supports the an-easy-to-use 85/86-key keyboard.
Furthermore the connector of the S100 supports the CN3230 keyboard interface 34 pin connector and the M100 supports the PJ3230 keyboard 34pin connector.

So possibly this could be a problem.
I recommend using the original keyboards released for the each notebook model.

Hello there. A few months ago, I upgraded to windows 10, but haven't been using skype for a while until very recently. I noticed that before I updated it from windows 10, my camera was working fine (on windows 8). However, now my camera won't work as it is grayed out. I did some research, and the cause of this is the camera shifted to privacy mode during the update. However, whenever I go to Lenovo Settings (the app used to turn on/off privacy mode) I get a message that tells me: "Please update or install the Lenovo System Interface Driver for full functionality of settings, then restart the app after installation." After going on the website and downloading the latest driver, I still get that message on Lenovo Settings (it is on a loop). This means that I cannot change shift privacy mode for my camera to off, as I need my driver to be up to date to get full access to Lenovo Settings. Is there a way I can fix the update loop? Is there another way to turn off privacy mode another way? Thank you.

Best security camera via network?

I have a client who's moving to a new building and they want to set up a security camera system where they could check it via their web browser. Any ideas on what equipment is good? I'm guessing anything with a dedicated Ethernet connection (I'm trying to stay away from wireless, since that stuff goes down faster and more often than my best friend's sister) would be best. Any special equipment that you guys like or have used in the past?

What about an offsite camera w/ no Internet access? They also do construction work at different locations (ie. new buildings; additional construction; etc.) where there is NO Internet access. Is there any way to install cameras there and have them be able to check it remotely? I'm guessing no... unless, of course, they "borrow" Internet access from someone close by (and by "borrow", I actually mean obtain permission and pay for it).

Finally... I have a 2nd client who has a 4-story building with a number of tenants. He wants to install a security camera by the front door. He would also like to view it via the Internet. So, I'm guessing this would have the same solution as part 1 of the problem above?

Answer:Best security camera via network? What about an offsite camera w/ no Internet access?

I used a DLink netcamera for my grandfathers house for a few months, wasnt bad at all.
Had a cable internet connection (with DHCP, not static)
- setup a router and had it do DHCP (ip's 192.168.1.145 to .150
- setup the camera with a static IP 192.168.1.99
- setup the port forwarding (port 80) to the cameras IP
- setup the router to update a DynDNS account with the current IP

At home I would just open IE and type in the DynDNS address and would get the cameras admin pages with the video, not overly fast over the internet, but I could see the trees blowing in the wind.
In the end I went through the steps on the DLink site to create a web page with the video enbedded in it, so I could open it and get the video, minus any admin pages (mom liked this better)

When I search through Scanners & Cameras and click on "Add an imaging device" the "Scanner & Camera Installation Wizzard" starts but Sony is not listed so I cannot select it. I can click on "Have Disk" but the CD that came with the Sony does not have the file it needs. The only thing on the CD (besides photo programs) is a USB driver which I did download but didn't help...... HOWEVER I have had MS Word refuse to start a week or so ago and I tried reinstalling but didn't work, I found an MS site that showed me how to repair the Word registry and that worked OK. This makes me suspect - maybe something has happened to the registry. I can't go there so I decided to ask for your help.... Any suggestions? Thanks in advance...
 

Answer:Cannot find MS Scanner & Camera Wizard to download photos from camera

Either camera should show up in "My Computer" when connected via USB ...
Where you can explore the files and copy>paste (drag>drop) them to a folder in your computer.
Can you get your pics this way ????

Hello, Recently purchased a T61 with the embedded web cam.  The notebook comes with "Lenovo Camera Center" software (which is more like a portal for camera-related software) but there is no useful software that enables me to actually use the camera - for example, to record clips or take a snapshot with it.  Nor can I figure out where to get such software.  I signed up for Skype and the camera works fine in that context.  But other than that, I am at a loss.  Why did this T61 not come with some basic software to use the camera?  Or is this an issue with Vista? Any help or guidance would be appreciated.  Thank you.

Hi all,

the Camera App on my Windows 10 somehow starts directly with the front-facing camera. I'm using a surface pro 4. I remember, it used to start with the main camera as default. Is there anyway to configure it to start with the main camera. I couldn't figure it out from the setting. (I'm not the selfie type, so this annoys me quite a bit).

Bests, bbbhh

(Edit - Subject should read 'Microsoft Camera Wizard does not work anymore with Canon digital camera')

I have a Canon SD 700 IS digital camera bought about 15 months ago. Until recently, I could connect it to the USB port (same one each time and that port is not used for anything else) of my Windows XP PC (1 year old, bought new) and the Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard would appear allowing me to use that software to transfer my digital pictures to my PC. Now, that does not work. I tried reinstalling the Canon EOS utility that came on a CD with my camera - no success in getting pictures transferred with that. The only way I can get the pictures to transfer, is to open Windows Explorer, the camera shows up under My Computer, but if I right click on Get pictures highlighting the camera listing, after multiple trys and 30 minutes, I get the few dozen pictures to transfer.

Anyone know what to try? I am suspecting it has to do with a recent overhall of my PC anti-spyware and security software (details below) as was using Lavasoft and Spybot before and found them becoming less effective. My computer is anti-malware free as far as I know from anti-spyware scans with multiple products (at least twice weekly) and real-time protection and anti-virus scans a little less frequently which Zone Alarm has never from day one found any viruses.

The computer is recognizing the camera in the USB port (it is enabled) and camera powered on and has no issues when taking pictures.... Read more

I just got a Hurcules Fortissimo 7.1 sound card as suggested by someone on this forum. Now when i play games that support EAX, i hear no rear sound. Ive played Halo, BF1942 DC Mod, and Americas Army. Evertime I throw a gernade and turn around to try to hear it blow up behind me its complete silence. Firefights in BF1942 cannot be heard behind me either. In Halo the plasma rifle sound cuts out(assuming its trying to channel rear sound). Of course my sound card settings are enabled for EAX and im using the optical input to my external receiver. My reciever is an AIWA 5.1 with an optical and coaxial spdif inputs. One rumor i heard is that EAX cannot pass through this digital output on the card. My reciever does not have any special inputs to accomodate front/rear/center/ect. Is it true that my EAX usless?
 

Answer:no rear sound FX using EAX

Some sound cards require you to use the analog outputs for EAX surround sound. The digital output is sometimes used for DVD playback so that the receiver can decode Dolby Digital signals. Consult your soundcard manual to see if this is the case. I have an audigy 2 card connected to a 6.1 receiver, the receiver does have 5.1 analog input however.

Question: Rear Fan Failure

I have a Dell Xps/410 computer running Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit, Intel Q6600 2.4GHz. processor, Ati X1300 256mb video card, WD 250Gb Hard drive. I keep getting a message saying Rear Fan Failure on every bootup. I'm concerned that maybe my system isn't cooling down adequately. I would guess that this alert is referring to my CPU cooling unit fan which at the present is running whereas it use to be a great deal quieter. Is it not running at the correct RPMs or what? If I keep running my computer as is will it damage the system's motherboard or other parts? I don't understand what fan it's referring to. The only fans I have in the back is located in the PSU. Could someone please help me to understand whats going on here. Thank you in advance.

Question: Rear I/O panel

Do you have to put it in? My case came bent and can't/don't want to return because I drilled in the front bezel.

So do you have to put the back plate it? The push in spot is bent a bit so plate can't go in with the motherboard being able to sit directly on the spacers.

Answer:Rear I/O panel

No, you don't have to, but if you don't theres a higher risk of the motherboard shorting out when you turn it on and of small objects falling through the gaps causing damage to the motherboard while in operation.

Its a good Idea to return the case and Get one thats not bent.

It is an A700 Ideacentre. One year old. Everything worked fine, but one day, my USB mouse (because I dont like the bluetooth one) did not worked. I tried everything with the USB Hub drivers etc, and after I tried to swap the ports, I realized, that only the two on the left side of the PC are working, the rear side (4 USB) are not working either with my mouse, nor with nothing. If I put an external drive, the led goes on, but the disk wont spin up. It looks like a HW problem. How can I test the HW part of USB? How can I recognize, if the rear USB ports are OK?Thank you for your reactions. 

Answer:Rear USB not working

hey ciselkovy,welcome to the forums.from what you have mentioned; you have tested other USB devices at the back USB port and it does not work and i am certain you have tested those items on a the side USB port as well as on a different computer to ascertain if it is working or not.And i do believe those USB devices does work.If you could, go into device manager and uninstall the current USB driver. Windows should then install it's own generic driver.Once that is done, test the rear USB ports and see if it works.If it doesn't get in contact with the service team via http://bit.ly/LNVsuppNum

Question: no rear surround

Hello my names Craig im having a strange issue & im trying to narrow down where the problem is motherboard or some glitch in the drivers

motherboard Asus p9x79 pro

running 5.1 ac3
left & right , center sub woofer work
Rear surround has just stopped working for no reason i do no understand why

i change the plugs around in back on motherboard & it only seems the rear surround plug port is not working . i plug the speaker in & realtek notices that a plug has been pushed in . i test the sound & rears still dont work .

went into playback devices & came across something wierd in picture below shows two 5.1 so i decided i would reformat the computer & see if i still have problem

okay so computer has been reformated check the settings the two 5.1 surround has gone but still no rear surround .

any suggest please I really love my sound

kind regards
Craig

Answer:no rear surround

First question, are you using the correct ASUS supplied sound driver? If not, that is the first step. In most cases the Vendor supplied sound driver is preferred. Non-Vendor drivers can either not work or not work correctly and that includes the generic (basic function) HD Audio Codec that Windows will install.

Yeah, yeah, I know. Don't use AOL, AOL is evil, AOL is the pits of the earth, with a maraschino cherry on top.

But I use it despite how evil it is. And I've noticed something very, very strange that I was hoping that the nice folks here might be able to help me with.

AIM, AOL's free Instant Message service, offers the ability to log individual Instant Messages with people, for free, in folders by the name of the person you're communicating with, within a folder of the screen name you're chatting under, yourself. Very nice, neat package. And free. Free is good.

AOL, which is a paid for service (I'm mooching off the rents for my own screen name, shameful as it is) does not offer this particular function. Instead, it offers only two separate functions: Chat Log and Session Log. Chat Log is nice when you're in a Chat room, but does not work on IMs. Session Log works on everything, but mushes it all together into one lump, 'organized' by the time it was typed/sent. This includes emails, IMs, chat, etc. And it's ALL smooshed together. If you send 5 emails and are talking to 7 people, all the conversations and emails get intermixed, nearly impossible to decipher.

Back when AOL was the world-domination program that it used to be, there were programs out there that would log individual IMs off AOL (among doing other, not so kosher things to AOL and its members), but as of late - and probably due to the lack of p... Read more

Answer:AOL pain in the rear

I keep AOL around for some features only AOL has, and the fact that a good majority of the people I still chat with tend not to talk as much when I'm not using AOL. Psychological thing for them, perhaps. But regardless, its there.

I hate to say it because I know people are just trying to help, but as well-intentioned as alternatives are, I'm looking for something that can help with the problem itself, not alternatives to using the horrible program. I already understand that AOL is a piece of junk, but as I said - eliminating the program is not an option at the moment. If a program no longer exists to log AOL IMs themselves (AIM offers the ability to log IMs, after all), then I'll be on my merry way.

All I'm looking for is a program to log AOL IMs. Not AIM IMs (again, as I said before, AIM already does that). I'm not looking for alternatives to AOL.

Thank you for your suggestions, but sadly, they don't help with the issue at hand.

Why don't you just IM chat with your contacts using AIM then you'd have exactly the IM records you wished?
Of course doing that via 'AIMAdHack' is by far the best way:

Question: Rear conections

On the back of every computer there are three 3.5 jack sockets. In-put and out-put. Now using these for 5.1 sound and using Creative 5100 speakers which plug goes into which hole?Cant find this documented any where. Can only find conections to a Creative sound card.also how do you obtain an input? ASUS Board and what prog do you use for recording from Walkman or Radio?

Answer:Rear conections

Is it just a single 3.5mm jack to connect them? I've just done a quick Google search and read that it's a single cable connection to your PC, but it didn't say what.It sounds to me like you need a digital output, so if your motherboard doesn't have a digital output (like most modern Creative cards do; SB Live! 5.1 onwards certainly) you will need a different sound card to use those speakers.That's assuming that you are talking about the onboard sound on an Asus motherboard. If there are only three jacks they will probably be Line In, Line Out/speakers and Microphone or something along those lines.Do you know the model number of your motherboard?

I have a Kodak SD camera card that my Sony A230 stopped detecting when inserted. I have been using this card for a year with no problems till today. I can plug it in a card reader in any of my computers and remove or send photos to it so I don't think it is a contact issue. I was using the camera today when the battery became exhausted and it shut off during a shoot. Since then the camera won't detect it. What could the problem be?
