My A4tech webcam display is all black. The lens covering is already down. Is my webcam failing on me?
I don’t understand since I have just used this webcam a few hours ago and it’s been working perfectly.
Now, when I try to take a picture all it shows is a black window nothing else.
Is it a loose connection or maybe some virus disrupting the display?
I have tried to scan my files for viruses (I have Norton), but it comes clean. Is there a way to fix it?
I have already restarted my CPU many times hoping it will fix it, but still it remains.
Maybe it’s time for me to buy a new webcam?

Remove the existing drivers of the webcam and uninstall the program installed with it together as well. Then start reinstalling it once again. The reason it turned black is that there might be a conflict with some programs you installed earlier.
If there is still warranty, then use it because it might be the lens that broke down. It is a possibility since all device are prone to damages. The lens is the most problem the webcam is facing that's why I think you try have it replaced. Also ask for technicians if the can repair it and see if its repairable.
