How to turn the camera?

If the image of the webcam is turned upside down and you cannot start communicating via Skype, then the question arises how to turn the camera on Skype so that it returns to its usual state? You should not panic and carry a laptop to the service center, you need to carry out not complicated manipulations and the image will return to its place.

Rotate the camera

First of all, before turning the camera, make sure that it is connected to a laptop or PC. You need to find the webcam as a device in the “Computer control panel” or “Device manager” and open Skype. If the camera is connected, but does not work, then you should install special drivers that can be found on the installation disc that came with the camera, or download them from the official website of the manufacturer.

After that, in the Tools or Tools item, select the Options menu item, find the Video Settings item, or Video settings, and click on it with the left mouse button. In the new dialog box, you need to click on the "Webcam settings" button, where the dialog box for detailed settings of the image coming from the webcam will open.Then you should find the item Image Mirror Flip, which is responsible for the mirror image flipping, where you need to check the box Image Vertical Flip and click the “OK” button to save all settings and close the window. After that, in the “Video Settings” section you can see the window where the webcam image is displayed. Looking at it, you will see if the picture has changed. If this does not happen, then you need to restart the program Skype. Sometimes you may need to restart your PC or laptop for the settings to take effect.

If after that the image has not changed, and the question of how to turn the camera on the laptop remains relevant, then it makes sense to contact the service center so that the experts identify the problem, perhaps it is the fault of the device itself.
