Camera:
1 - There is a lens cover on some laptops.  Look closely at the camera at the top of your screen for the hidden lever.  It moves right to left.
2 - Some of our laptops have 2 cameras. If your camera is not programmed to the correct camera when using Zoom, open the Zoom app on your desktop, go to your profile in the upper right corner, select Settings, click on Video and select the correct camera from the drop down under the picture.

If you get a "domain" error, it mostly likely means you forgot to type the 2 extra characters in front of your username when logging onto a PWCS computer:   .\pwcsstudent.   If this doesn't resolve your issue, call the HELP Desk number above.
