Camera not working

HP Recommended
Pavilion 24-r0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My camera is not displaying any images, regardless of the software. It also doesn't show any images using the camera app. I have verified all drivers are up to date.

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

  • Did this happen after a recent window or software update?
  • Have you made any hardware/software changes?

While you respond to that, let's try these steps: 

  1. Disconnect the webcam from the USB port and wait at least 10 seconds.

  2. Restart the computer.

  3. Wait until Windows fully loads, and then plug the webcam into a different USB port.

  4. In Windows, type Device Manager into Search, and then select Device Manager in the search results.

  5. Double-click Imaging Devices to expand the list of webcams.

  6. Double-click a webcam device. The properties screen displays the Device status.

  7. If there are no Imaging devices, select Action, then Scan for hardware changes.

  8. If Device Manager does not recognize the webcam after the scan, use Microsoft System Restore to go back to a time when the webcam was working properly.

  9. Make sure the webcam drivers and software are compatible with your version of Windows. Go to the webcam manufacturer's website to download and install any driver updates.

  10. To automatically resolve several known problems with Windows recognizing the webcam, click the Microsoft Fix it Solution and try using the webcam again.

  11. If problems persist, test the webcam on another computer. If the webcam works correctly on another computer, use the HP Recovery Manager to restore all the system files back to a time when the webcam was working properly from here:

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
