Webcam on X200s gives pink image. Solutions?

#1 Post by BigCatAndy » Tue Jul 10, 2018 7:31 am

Hello,
recently I exchanged Display cable on my X200s. Now the Webcam is visible in BIOS and can be used, but it creates extremely pink Image. When I cover the lens with my finger, the Image is not black, but pink.

Does anyone know why? And what might be the solution for it?

Thank in advance,
Andrey

Either the wrong driver is installed, or the camera module has an issue.
Daily driver: X220 4291-C91 i7-2620M

Backup: X220 4291-P79 i5-2520M
Toy: X60F Core Solo U1300
In pieces: two retired but working X61Ts
RIP: 760XD 9546-U9E; X61 7676-A24; and a BOE-Hydis HV121P01-100 in failed SXGA+ mod

thanks for the hint. I also thought about wrong driver, but somehow I cannot prevent Win7 from installing a driver as soon as ai activate the cam in the device manager. I suppose, I should try to use the one from Lenovo, and not the standard one.

it was a problem with camera - I ordered recently a new one from China, and now I have working webcam in my X200s.
