webcam doesn't work

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion All-in-One - 24-xa0029c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi guys,

 

I bought a HP Pavilion All-in-One - 24-xa0029c 3 months ago. Its webcam stop working recently. I tried a external one, it worked fine.

 

I checked the spec, it shows the webcam is a "HP Truevision FHD camera with dual array digital microphone".

I could not find any camera under "Device Manager". My guess is that Win10 updates somehow erased the webcam driver. Would you please help me to get the driver reinstalled?

 

Thanks!

Hi Fossette,

 

Thank you for trying to help me. But it still doesn't work.

I tried to follow the doc you provided, especially the section: Webcam is not listed in Device Manager, but

 

#1. my computer is an All in one, so I couldn't unplug/plug the camera.

#2. There is no "Camera" or"Imaging devices" section listed in my "Device Manager" at all.

#3. I clicked "Scan for hardware changes", nothing changes. Restarting computer,  same.

#4. I started "Camera" application, it always shows a "NoCamerasAreAttached" error. 

 

Thanks!

Hi Fossette,

 

I followed the doc you provided, tested hardware failure . And found nothing.

 

I am quite sure it is a simple software issue. Somehow the camera driver was eliminated, and cannot auto reload. Actually restart computer once fixed the issue, but it no longer works now.

 

Thanks.

Reset window doesn't solve the problem.

 

From what I can see, it must be a DRIVER issue. Would you please help me find the driver for that webcam? Thanks!

The webcam uses the Windows built-in drivers and there is no specific driver from HP for the webcam. 

 

I recommend you try the reset and check if it helps.

 

Let me know how it goes.

@haizhi It looks like this is a hardware malfunction and I suggest you talk to HP support and discuss your options, follow the below steps to get started:

 

1) Click on this link - http://www.hp.com/contacthp/

2) Click on Sign-in or select the product using the below step:

3) Enter the serial of your device.

4) Select the country from the drop-down.

5) Click on "Show Options".

Fill the web-form, to populate a case number and phone number for yourself!

 

Also, if you are having trouble navigating through the above options, it's most likely because the device is out of warranty, if yes? please send me a private message with the region you are contacting us from, 

here's how private messages work: Click here for details.

If you wish to thank me for my efforts, you could click on "Accept as solution" on my post as the solution should help others too.
