    Hello everyone,
    I'm using my LifeCam VX-3000 with its bundled software. It's updated to
    v1.3, the latest one, but I've had this problem since I began using the
    camera. When I preview my picture in the software the video preview has many
    flickering, horizontal lines in the picture which distort the color.
    Adjusting the focus doesn't help, and the camera is plugged into the fastest
    USB port available on my computer (It's only about a year old so I know the
    ports are fast enough). I even tried increasing the USB bandwidth in the
    picture settings in the software; the highest it can go for me is 5, and the
    automatic setting puts it at 4. This does not resolve the problem either.

    I doubt the product is defective, it's been like this since I bought it and
    the packaging looked solid when we bought it. Can anyone shed some light on
    how I can fix this problem?

    Thank you!
