Default Webcam harness - 04-13-2009, 10:55 PM

i ordered my mini 9 without a webcam but now i want to put one on there. im curious about the wiring harness the stock one plugs into. is this just a usb with a different connector? or is it somethign else? if it is just usb, it would be easy to rip apart an after market webcam and hack it in, but otherwise i'll have to wire it in somewhere else

you have to have the LVDS (Display) cable that has the Webcam port on it. The webcam is USB that connects on the motherboard through the display port.

I recently ordered the 1.3 mp Camera Service Kit (the cable,the camera and the pieces of rubber that cover the screw holes for the LCD hinges),and the screen bezel with the camera hole in it. Cost me around $54.

I went ahead and ordered everything,however,I think I am gonna try installing a GPS receiver instead of actually using the camera. If the GPS dosent work,ill just put the camera in.

Its probably cheaper using Dell's camera,and you know it works...

if you don't use the cam I'd be interested in buying it to upgrade my 0.3 to 1.3...
