The camera on my HP All in One 24-fOxx does not work.

The diagnostics show that the camera is operating and allows me to take a picture but the screen is blank.

@cam42
Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:

  • Did this happen after a recent window or software update?
  • Have you made any hardware/software changes?
  • Are you sure your computer has a camera? Many models of HP computers did not come with webcams.

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

Firstly, Look for the Kill Switch:

The switch is usually on the right-hand side of the PC or on top next to camera, and when enabled will block the camera

Next step: Try a hard reset:

When Windows doesn’t see devices like cameras, sometimes it just needs to be forced to look again.  Try a power reset.

Once detected, you should see the camera in the Device Manager.  Right-click the Start button and select Device Manager.  Expand the Cameras section to see your camera. 

  • TIP:  You can disable the webcam here in the Device Manager by right-clicking on the camera and select Disable Device.  Don’t forget to enable it later if needed.

If the issue persists then Install the driver:

Sometimes Windows needs the latest camera driver for the camera to function well.  While in the Device Manager, right-click on your camera and select Update Driver.  Then click Search Automatically for updated driver software.  The latest driver is always available via Windows Update.
