Secure Connection: A simple check to ensure the USB cable is snugly connected can sometimes work wonders.

πŸ–₯ Webcam Body & Overheating

A quick inspection for cracks or dents can help identify potential internal issues. And remember, if your webcam feels unusually warm, give it a break and ensure it's in a cool, well-ventilated space.

πŸ”Œ Compatibility & Connections

Our webcams love USB 3.1 Gen 1 or Gen 2. Ensure your setup is compatible for a seamless experience.
