I just got my new HP DV7 6135dx about a week after it came out and when I was playing around with the webcam a few days after, it worked great.
But then all of a sudden it went dark. Not black, but just very dark. I have tried
- uninstalling and reinstalling the webcam through the device manager
- rebooting multiple times
- alternative webcam software to the one HP has pre-installed (Cyberlink YouCam) thinking I might have tweaked a wrong setting in there
but I was still getting the same dark picture. Is there anything I can try to do before I take it down to Best Buy and have geeksquad take a look at it?
