HP 6735s Webcam is blurred.

Hi there,
Hoping to get some troubleshooting on why my webcam on my new HP 6735s Laptop is blurred. It can't seem to focus properly and anything that is too bright seems to glow ridiculously.
basically its slightly out of focus and I do not know how to focus it.

Any help here would be much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

regards

Kurt

>> It can't seem to focus properly and anything that is too bright seems to glow ridiculously.

As a photographer, I think (a) the lens could be damaged or (b) the lens could be covered by something.

Please use a soft cloth to clean the lens first. If (a), you may have to replace the camera.

Hi, Thanks for the reply, that was my initial suspicion but nothing is over the lens and it is clean. It is a laptop webcam and to replace it is difficult and more work than it is worth.

I'm hoping someone will know of a way to adjust the focus manually or with some software that is pre-installed on the laptop.

Regards

Kurt

Re: HP 6735s Webcam is blurred.

If you are talking about the built-in webcam, ours came with a piece of thin plastic over it. Itâ s the same protective material that is on the R/L click and power buttons. It should peel off with a little coaxing.

Hope this helps!
