Question about Acer Aspire 5600 Series 5630-6951 Laptop
I didn't use the camera for more than 6 months and when I tried to use it recently it said "the camera is not available or not working. I downloaded drivers which didn't help so took the notebook back to factory default and the camera came back. A week later it had reverted to the same old not available or not working. I was told by Acer to take it to a repair place but I don't use the camera enough to pay more for repairs. Beverly
Hi! Your built in camera is just like ordinary camera that you plug into usb ports available. The only difference is that your built in cam is directly plugged into a dedicated usb slot in the motherboard. Most of the times the cable of the camera passes thru the hinges of the LCD which is prone to damamge due to opening and closing motion you do on your LCD or Laptop cover.
What could have happened was that the tiny cables that connects your cam to the board is now slightly aor if not severely damaged. unless you are a novice, I suggest you really have to bring it in for repair before it causes more harm to your laptop.
