Why is my camera not working on Discord?
In some cases, Discord simply might not be detecting user webcams. However, other users have said they see black screens even though Discord detects and seemingly can access their cameras.
Those are slightly different scenarios, but users can’t utilize their cameras with the Discord software either way.
Discord camera unavailable issues can arise when cameras aren’t properly connected or installed. However, such issues can also be due to outdated webcam drivers.
If you see black screens in Discord even when your camera seemingly is available, your Discord software installation might be corrupted. Or you might be utilizing an outdated Windows 10 build version.
How can I fix the Discord camera not working?
Discord not detecting camera
1. Update your webcam’s drivers
When Discord can’t detect (or access) a webcam, updating the camera’s drivers might resolve the issue.
You can do that with DriverFix, which is driver updater software that makes updating drivers a breeze. DriverFix will quickly scan your PC and list any devices with outdated drivers.
If DriverFix shows that your webcam’s driver needs updating, you can click an Update button to download the driver.
When utilizing DriverFix Pro, you can also select an Automatically Install option. That option will save you needing to manually extract and install the driver with its setup wizard.
