Hi Alex, I was wondering if you can give me any help.
I’ve been trying all day to get my PS3eye working with no luck. I installed the latest version of the driver, before plugging the camera in. Then I installed it when prompted by windows. After this it said my new hardware was installed successfully and was ready to use but when I go into the test nothing shows at all - just a black screen. When I attempt to use the camera in MSN or skype I’m told that the camera is not working properly.
Do you, or does anyone have any idea what the problem might be?
Thanks in advance!
Can you give me more detail regarding the driver version you installed? Also what are your system specs (CPU, OS version, memory type and size, graphics card)?
I am having exactly the same problem with the 188.8.131.520 drivers on Windows 7 64-bit. Drivers install OK and the camera appears in device manager etc. The blue light on the camera comes on when it is attached, but the red light stays off at all times and the CL-Eye test app just shows a blank screen. The app also seems unstable as it hangs when trying use the menus/change setting etc…
I have tried disabling driver signing, and running as administrator, uninstalling & reinstalling drivers, rebooting, compatibility mode etc.
The older AlexP v3 drivers work slightly better - the old test app at least shows what the camera sees and the camera’s red light comes on, but the app is unstable on Win 7 64 (probably no surprise).
Core i5, 4GB DDR3, Radeon 5850 (Catalyst 9.12) on Win 7 pro 64-bit.
Had the camera working great on XP 32-bit (using the old AlexP v3 drivers) by the way - many thanks for all you great work on this!
