Problem with QC... White picture?
I seem to be having some problems with my QuickCam of
late. For the past few days (and this occured a couple of times
previously), I haven't been able to get a picture out of the
camera. If I use qcam from the command-line, I get nothing but
'?' output (if I just dump to screen instead of a textfile). Using
Xfqcam isn't any better, as I just get a pure white screen no matter
the slider setttings.
I'm wondering if I just have a bad Qcam that I need to
return, or if I'm doing something wrong... A reboot of the computer
nor a power cycle will cure it. I even unplugged the darn thing
from the parallel and keyboard ports, but this doesn't even seem to
bring it back to a usable state. As I mentioned earlier, this has
happened in the past, but I think it was luck that revived it more
than any logical explanation...
