Camera with slash

When in a meeting I have a square with a camera and a slash through the camera. How do I fix this so my meeting can see me and I can see myself? 

I have tried settings and chats to no avail.

I have the same issue and I have an ASUS.

I had this same problem, and it was easily solved once I connected the dotsI had turned OFF the camera using the option offered via my laptop keyboard.

 

On my Asus Zenbook, it was the f10 key (or if you have changed things so that function keys work like function keys rather than enabling/disabling features, use fn-f10, meaning press the fn key next to the space bar, hold it like a shift key, and press that f10).  Of course, for folks on other laptops (lenovo, acer, dell, etc.), you may find the camera key under a different function key, or it may be a key offered separately from function keys.

 

I was shocked that this suggestion was not offered either in that zoom technote offered here (and that I'd found before finding this community thread) nor is it offered in any of the MANY other resource I found on the web that proposed to "solve" this problem--some having people uninstall or reinstall drivers, software, etc. Sometimes, the simplest solution is indeed the best. We just might not think of it. But yep, sometimes the simple answer may not work, so more complicated ones may be required.

 

I do hope this answer may help someone. If you feel it does, please hit the like button here to help others know that. And Tami, if this is indeed the answer for you, if you could mark it as "the answer" that also may help others more readily see it.

If I could hug you in person I would!!!!  That was such a simple fix and I just spent hours trying to figure this out!!!! 

Why zoom support does not have this available as a fix is beyond me! 

Thank you so very much!!!! Oh, I have a new Asus Laptop! 

Great to hear, and glad to have helped. Wish we might hear if it helped @Bettie especially (also on an Asus), or @Tami . Either way, again, hope it may help others who find it in the future.
