    I am experiencing this problem as well. And I solved it using the suggestion in the 2nd post of this thread.

    If it is hardware related, please take your battery out.
    Then power up with AC only. Power down, unplug AC and hit power button ten times.
    Then install your battery pack, plug in AC and power up.

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    Does anyone have the video camera working on the Edge 14 (Intel)? I tried looking at the video input section gstreamer-properties. The camera is listed as 'integrated camera' and the green light turns on. However, whenever I try to run the test, all I get is a gray box. The same thing happens when I run Cheese. In the end, it would be nice to be able to use it with Skype.

    I haven't been able to get it to work either (I also have an Intel Edge 14). If you want to, could you add your experiences or expand this article on thinkwiki? It would really help out other Edge users.

    Actually the experiences over here are pretty much the same. I did a little more digging into the camera situation.

    Location in lsusb:
    Code:
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 17ef:4810 Lenovo
    Relevant section from dmesg:
    Code:
    [   15.767878] uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device Integrated Camera (17ef:4810)
    [   15.769101] input: Integrated Camera as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-1/2-1.4/2-1.4:1.0/input/input5
    [   15.769200] usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo
    [   15.769204] USB Video Class driver (v0.1.0)
    This appears to be the same camera in other laptops. I found a post with a SL510 user saying that the camera works with Arch. I did notice that the kernel version is newer (2.6.34 vs 2.6.32).

    Here is the output from luvcview:
    Code:
    luvcview 0.2.6
    
    SDL information:
      Video driver: x11
      A window manager is available
    Device information:
      Device path:  /dev/video0
    Stream settings:
      Frame format: MJPG
      Frame size:   640x480
      Frame rate:   30 fps
    I still see the gray box even with that.

    Have you tried the 10.10 Alpha 3 LiveCD yet (I have not)? Maybe that has some fixes.

    Hmm... now the camera is working (probably because of an update).

    I got the camera working. All you have to do is left-click on the panel's sound button and select "Sound Preferences...". On the "Input" tab uncheck "Mute" and increase the "Input Volume" to 100%.

    The microphone can be tested by the "Sound Recorder" (Applications->Sound & Video->Sound Recorder). Just press the record button, say something, press the stop button and then press the play button.

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    i wonder how come you're having problems with the webcam or microphone! to me, surprisingly everything ran out of the box! even two finger scroll and stuff runs smoother than windows 7! i'm just a bit lazy to get the pinch zoom working,.. will do it tonight!

    i'd first recommend to update the system!

    edge config: 0578-hnq, i5(450m), 2gb memory, 500gb hdd bla bla bla!

    the only thing i couldn't geth working was the keyboard backlight!
