Problem When attempting to use the built in camera on a Lenovo laptop the camera does not work. The same image is seen with all applications. This didnt work! Updating the Lenovo Settings Dependency Package software.
After this has been done repeat solution 3 above. Annoying to have to do that but at least I now have the camera back. Hope this helps. Sorry to have to say that this has proven to be a temp solution. Unfortunately the problem persists. Camera is basically still non-operational. Really thought this had solved the issue.

After getting increasingly frustrated changing drivers, redoing installs etc. I finally decided to open up the laptop and re-seat the integrated camera connectors on the camera PCB and mother board.
When this was done, the easy camera started to work again and has continued to work with no seeming problems. So, in the end it was a hardware issue and not a software issue.
