    Default LG E500 SmartCam not working

    Hi

    I have recently purchased the LG E500 SB11A and have found that the webcam (SmartCam) has stopped working. I have can not find it anywhere in device manager. I have also gone to the full length of rebuilding my laptop with the LG Vista CD.

    Does anyone have any idea how to get the webcam working? When I use MSN or anything else it just tells me that there is no device installed.

    Thanks for your help...

    I had the same exact problem with the LG E500 SmartCam and it almost drove me mad.
    In the end, just by hitting Fn+F10 you can activate the smartcam again. The thing is, when you deactivate it from there, it truly disappears from the device manager, and everywhere else.
    I just couldnt belive when that crap did the trick.
    Anyway, if that doesnt solve it, I have heard of others with the same problem that by formatting and reinstalling vista or even better XP they got their problem solved.
    Hope I was of any help.

    It also worked for me! when you press fn + f10 a small icon with a camera appears alternatively with and without a red cross, indicating that the camera is on or off. What I dont understand is why this is not depicted in the manual. To whom posted the solution, did you find it by chance?
