Welcome...
You will need to provide more info than that ...

What OS?
What Cam?
What was wrong in the first place?
What did you do to "fix"...didn't work very well I gather...

I got this webcam from wal-mart. I've had it since February worked great until a couple days ago. Then the screen went black and only could see urself a little if u had a lot of light. So I deleted it then put it back on and now it works but the picture is blurry. Can u hlep it is from micro innovations and the model is IC50C

What did you do to make the screen go black?
What Operating System are you useing?

I know nothing about web cams but am asking the questions that will be asked anyway...

Did you changed your screen resolution?

Based on a quick Google search...

you could try new drivers from here...

but for the price I personally wouldn't waste more than a minute trying to fix it...just go get another el-cheapo

Have you checked for dirt or smear on the lens. These lenses are quite tiny and dirt is not always obvious.

The webcams I have seen have a focus ring on the little lens. Maybe it was accidentally turned and put you out of focus?
