A step-by-step guide for doing a webcam test online

Here is how you can check if your webcam is working or not:

Step 1: You need to allow the browser to use a webcam for your application.

Step 2: Click on the camera.

Step 3: Now click on "Take a photoā€¯ to check if your webcam is able to take a photo. Once you click on take a photo, your photo appears in the right box.

Step 4: You can now click on the 'Stop camera' button to stop the camera.

Your webcam is functioning properly if you can see the image it is taking on your screen. If the image is not seen properly, it means your webcam is not working.

Here are some reasons why your webcam is not working:

  • The wire may not be fully inserted into the connector on your camera or your computer may simply not be connected.
  • The wire that connects your camera to the computer might be broken, making it incapable of functioning.
  • Even though the device might be functional, your operating system's software might have disabled it.
  • Some webcam models include an "ON/OFF" switch; if yours does, make sure it is turned to "ON."
  • If an app uses your camera, it might not be available for other apps to use.
  • Access to use your camera in the browser is not provided for it to continue working.
  • The web camera is damaged.
  • The web camera is not available on your device. In this case, you can always buy a new webcam and install it.
