Hello Community,

Yes, you can use Sony DSC-F717 as webcam. Sony's DSC-F717 is a digital still camera from Sony's cyber-shot brand. The camera is also capable of capturing video. Problems with the cameras can be related to the battery pack and power; shooting still images and movies; viewing and editing images; flash memory; and computer connection issues. Problems with the cyber-shot DSC-F717 can be solved by following some troubleshooting steps

1. Turn the camera off to charge the battery pack if the battery pack isn't charging. Look for the charge lamp. It's the lamp marked "CHG." If the lamp flashes, the battery pack isn't installed properly. Seat the battery pack properly. You should be able to easily close the battery compartment door. It's normal for the camera to turn off suddenly when running on battery power--it's a battery-saving measure.
2. Insert a memory stick if the camera won't record still images or movies. Insert the memory stick the right way. It inserts from the right side. Take a look at the Mode Dial and make sure it's not set to "SET UP" or on the arrow icon, which indicates Playback mode. The camera won't record in Playback mode or Setup.
3. Set the write protect switch on the memory stick flash memory to the recording position if the deleting or editing functionality won't work. The switch mustn't be on the "Lock" position.
4. Move the camera away from the television if the images are noisy. Noise shows as specks of light, snow or other unacceptable degradation. Any strong magnetic field can cause noise, including microwave ovens.
5. Connect the camera to the computer to view images full-size if they're too small on the camera. Use the supplied USB cable. You may have to disconnect the cable and reconnect it again if the computer won't recognize the Sony DSC-F717 cyber-shot camera right away.
