When attempting to use the built in camera on a Lenovo laptop the camera does not work. Instead of seeing the image from the camera you see an image with a grey background and a white camera with a cross through it.
The same image is seen with all applications. This issue appears to be a bug with the Lenovo software – where the camera’s “privacy mode” is enabled by default.
- Look for where your camera is on the laptop – usually this is above the monitor on the frame
- Check if it has a lens cover and whether it is closed
- These are usually a small plastic strip that slides over
