Force Your Chromebook to Recognize Your Doc Cam

If your Chromebook has stopped recognizing your document camera, please follow the steps below:

  1. Have you fully powered off your Chromebook? If not, could you leave your document camera plugged in, shut down, and power back up? Then test with Screencastify or Google Meet and see if it comes back up.
  2. If that doesn't work, please check your settings and force the Chromebook to look through that document camera (assuming it's recognized). Directions on how to do that are here: http://thetechlady-km.blogspot.com/2014/12/tech-tip-how-to-use-external-webcam-on.html
