  • Hi Rameshmca12,

    Welcome to the Community. You can use the below thread by Rick to troubleshoot webcam issues. But if there is no Imaging device in device manager, then the webcam is not getting detected, hence you will need to contact Dell Technical support in your region.


    Hope this helps.

    Thank you

  • same problem with me.. have you got any solution?

  • try pinching the cover next to the camera when you are trying to use it.....sounds like a bad connection. On some of these models dells webcam is the weak link.
