Webcam Purple Tint

HP Recommended
HP Spectre x360


Seemingly out of no where, my webcam started having an extremely purple tint. I made sure the webcam driver was updated and even tried uninstalling and reinstalling it. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to fix this? Thank you very much!

Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  

  1. In Windows, search for and open Device Manager.

  2. Double-click Imaging Devices to expand the list of webcam drivers.

  3. If the HP Webcam-101 or Microsoft USB Video Device is listed, right-click the driver and select Update Driver Software and follow the on-screen instructions.

  4. Restart your computer, and open your webcam software to see if the problem is resolved.

    If the problem persists, use HP PCs - Using Microsoft System Restore (Windows 10, 😎 to go back to a time when the webcam was working properly.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
