hi tanderson5,

Troubleshooting camera issues during a meeting – Zoom Support


thanks,  eliot

I did all that. No help


Me too.


Tanderson5, I have the same problem here. 3 machines here, 1 win8, 2 win10 laptops. I have re-formatted both win10 laptops, one on the 12th, the other on the 13th. the machine reformatted today, i installed their software only, and ran a zoom test without setting up our accounts. It's not a camera issue, because it's the onboard camera of 3 different machines. we also have a restream account and i got the admin to let me use the account for 5 minutes and there was no issue with the camera. started wednesday morning, now it's  friday and i've been dealing with this for 3 days myself. not really sure of my next option. Someone please help.

Yep. Sounds exactly like mine and started same time


T, i found another thread on this subject. find zoom cleaner (i guess search the web) run it, it uninstalls zoom. After a restart, download 5.12.9 and turn off auto updates. it fixed the problem on the one machine I tried it on. They're coming out with a new update to fix the broken update soon.


You are not alone. Two days ago the same happened to e. I have been using Zoom for 3 years with no problems. I have tried everything to fix this. Are they trying to force us to upgrade????




no sue, look at my latest reply to tanderson5, run zoom cleaner, restart, download and run version 5.12.9 and during install, turn off auto update

This issue seemed to pop-up two updates ago, and I believe the latest update version 5.13.4 has fixed it. Prior to the update when I was experiencing this issue I went to Video Settings -> Advanced and unchecked "Optimize video quality with de-noise" and that fixed it.

If you find this information helpful, please click on "Accept as Solution".

If you have further questions, please reply, we're happy to help.

Thank you for contacting Zoom Support, my name is Chris and I'll be working on this ticket with you.
I understand you are experiencing video issues after updating to the latest Zoom Version 5.13. We would like to apologize for the inconvenience.
Our Engineers have reproduced the issue and found the root cause, the video de-noise function goes wrong when the CPU usage is high on some computers with low-performance CPUs. 
The issue is expected to be fixed on the 5.13.5 version which will be released next Monday, January 16th.

While waiting for a fix, we have these work arounds that can resolve the issue for the time being: 
Work Around 1 - Disabling video de-noise in the advanced video settings can avoid the issue.

On your Zoom App, Go to > Settings ( By clicking on the Upper right hand corner 'gear icon')
Select ‘Video’ > Advanced > Uncheck  ‘Optimize quality of the video | send with de-noise
Work Around 2 - Roll back to Previous Zoom Version 5.12.9 (Downgrading to 5.12.9 fixes the issue)
Roll back and re-install instructions for Windows
First uninstall the current Zoom version (Windows)
The following steps should help get the old installation cleared, and get Zoom reinstalled and working for you.
Could you please run the CleanZoom application in the attachments, and then restart your computer when it's finished?
Once done restarting please visit this link  
EXE 64-bit: this will automatically download the previous version for you.
Roll back and re-install instructions for MAC
Click on the Zoom Icon at the dock while you have the Zoom Client running.
On the upper left you will see, click on Uninstall
Once Zoom is completely uninstalled,  visit this link below to roll back to the previous version.

It has now been 2 weeks and still have issue. There is no VIDEO option under settings


I am having the exact same issue.  I reported it last Wednesday to Zoom as it started in my supervision with my supervisor at 11.30am on Wednesday and then did it all week with all my clients.  It is so off-putting strobing in green and then putting their video into mine I had turn the video off. I am working with clients today and have the same issue still nearly a week later!


I was told to click on settings and then video.  There is no video button on my settings or a de-noise as I have been told to do.  I have been told I have to pay for support, but I have used Zoom for nearly 3 years, surely when this is their issue they should sort it out when we are paying for a service!  Not impressed at all.  I shall be finding another way of seeing my clients if this continues.


Has anyone else had the same problem?  Help!  It looks like I need to cancel this subscription!




I pay £150 per year and never had this issue before, I need it for my private practise business. 


I still have not got my resloved and its been over 2 weeks



Hi @tanderson5 @Seba23 , using the Zoom app Home page, please follow these steps to locate the Video settings:

I would also highly encourage you to completely uninstall the Zoom app, reboot the device, and then install the latest version. This should also help to fix this issue. Keep me updated!
