Video call button grayed out

Hi Guys

Using the latest version of Skype with Win 7 and a Microsoft lifecam. When selecting a contact the video call button is grayed out but a video call is possible by selecting 'video call' from the call dropdown menu. This works fine as long as I haven't previously opened the Microsoft Lifecam program, If I have then the call just drops out immediately as my video image tries to come online.  Any suggestions or solutions please?

Regards

JJ
