Hello, Many users have problems with web cams. Press the designated button to turn on your camera. If you are using an external camera, use a compatible USB cable to connect the camera to the USB port of your computer.

Visit a website that allows you to test your webcam online. An example of a site you can use include http://www.ehow.com/how_8443971_test-webcam-online.html
Next try this.
Click the "Allow" button from the flash player settings window. You should now see live video footage from your web camera. If you don't see live video, your web camera is not working properly.
To reinstall the drivers try this. Right click on My Computer-> Properties -> Device manager -> Imaging Devices -? Webcam. Right click on the webcam and uninstall it. This will cause the computer to reinstall the drivers and software. Restart the computer and hopefully your problem will be fixed.

Short answer.
1. Use Skype. When running Skype, your Kindle Fire HD will recognize and use your built-in camera.
2. Download and install the free apps ES Explorer or Photo Editor App. Either will allow you to use the camera to take photos.
ES Mobile File Explorer
Macgyver Photo Editor

You can use video call on Skype, or make use of the facebook app on the Kindle Fire for using webcam. There're several other apps that can make good use of the camera on the Kindle Fire HD, and there's a good discussion here about this:
