Angry Any Extra Webcam Assembly cables? - 04-18-2010, 01:59 AM

After a few hours with customer support, and them guaranteeing that my computer is still under warranty (not the first time they have done this) dell refuses to give me a cable that connects the webcam assembly to the motherboard. I was curious if anyone has one that I can buy, or have that they are not using. I am aware that many people who hackintosh or tablet might have an extra one laying around seeing as how the webcam isn't particularly friendly with either set up.

Also, if you know where I can outright buy this cable from a website: please let me know! I have spent hours trying to find this specific 5 pin to 5 pin cable set up, and there are just too many cables out there! Dell has no specific reference number to this cable either. They told me to buy a new camera assembly (thanks dell!)


(the cable is 5 pin black at one end and white at the other; I have had no luck finding it online)

just an idea ,but maybe you can pick up a whole Mini 9 for parts, if its got a cracked screen or something you might get it cheap, check the for sale forum on this site or maybe try ebay, you might need other parts in the nice to have a whole machine sitting there just in case....just my 0.02..

Dell probably does not sell the cable separately.
