I'm trying to Skype with my Mom. She just got a new Acer Tablet and she can see me and she can see herself, but I only see a green screen for her! Someone please help us! I think it might be her device, but any tips would be very helpful!
Solved! Go to Solution.
This seems to be a problem for many of us. I purchased 4 acer iconias for christmas. It seems to be doing this on all of them. I got one to work then it stopped working. Im not sure whats going on but it cant be all the tablets. im thinking somethings wrong with skype especially since i had one working but t didnt last. i did all system updates like others suggested but it didnt help me, any other ideas?
also i wanted to add that the one that is working has not done an update yet....it seems maybe the updates have a bug in them?? not sure if its coincidence though
I have he same problem using my Android tablet but mine is a Toshiba Thrive. I also can't fine the tools menu that I have on my Win 7 laptop, which works just great by the way. It must have something to do with Android and Skype. Hope someone figures it out soon.
ok i fixed it!!!!!!! yay!!! i did a system update and thought when that didnt work i was just out of luck. however a few seconds later i checked again and another system update was there. so keep updating system updates until you see no more available then a really long update finally fixed it and now i have no more available updates left and skype works fine

Good that it worked for you, but didn't work for me. I did all the updates I was prompted to and still have the green screen Actually, my tablet sends a green screen to the other Skype user, but I can see myself fine. I've changed from front camera to back and the other user is still seeing all green. I tried 2 different users and they both saw nothing but green. Definitely the problem is the video sent by the tablet.

This is un update of my previous post. The user who said that you need to go through all the updates was right. My tablet kept dowloading update after update for the first week to 10 days and after the very last update, the green screen was gone. It got to a point in which I thought that I had gone through the latest update, but again there was one more availbale. 1/25/12
