Re: Pavilion dv6 hp true vision hd inbuilt webcam not working or even detected by any program !

Hi all, I'm new to this forums as I have just purchased a new HP Pavillion DV6-6137tx.  Unfortunately just like all of you, my webcam only worked for 5 mins and video just disappeared.  The indicator light lits up when I open YouCam or Skype video call, but there is no video at all.  HP support has gone through the whole process of uninstalling and reinstalling a whole heap of drivers with me yesterday but still no solution.  Hopefully someone here can help me out.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. My webcam stopped working months ago, and I couldn't find any solutions at the time.  Your trick worked! Hopefully the connector stays in there now, and I won't get any more USB malfunction notifications either :smileyhappy:

Anyone that is having problems, someone suggested further up to take the plastic off around the edge of the screen so you can access the webcam from inside.  There is a small connector plug by the webcam that might have come loose.  If you squeeze it back together your webcam might work again.  Fixed my problem!
