ORbiCam Aspire 5672 - says it is unplugged

\015 Yes I have an Acer Aspire 5672 WLMi and I have the same problem with my\015\012OrbiCam, it says it is unplugged or disconnected and I have tried to do\015\012the device manager thing, but there is no OrbiCam or any other type of\015\012Camera device to suggest a web cam in the Device Manager. So there's no\015\012point to going there.Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!\015

\015\012My laptop is Acer Aspire 5672, which I bought 2 years ago in US. I had\015\012the same problem whith Acer's camera and I was searching internet all\015\012the time to fix it, but I didnt find any answers - only questions as\015\012yours ;)

\015\012Notice, when you move the camera sometimes you hear the noise of\015\012plugging the device. Try to use your imagination - THAT PROBLEM IS NOT\015\012CONNECTED WITH SOME SOFTWARE ISSUES!!!!!! It's internally in your\015\012camera - simple, when you open it (first you have to unscrew off the\015\012frame around the screen carefully) you will see that its not propely\015\012connected and the plug inside is loose!!!!!!). It's because the cable\015\012from 'internal usb' to your camera is very tight. Try to slacken the\015\012cable, propely plug the camera and... THAT'S IT!! IT REALLY WORKS!!!

Anyone still having this problem out there, ive found a solution. I have the 5672 wlmi and my orbicam was not even detected. I simply took the plastic piece around my power button off. It goes the length of the keyboard. Well i then unplugged the camera plug, and plugged it back in. (had to do it twice) I then was able to detect the camera again, and reinstall the updated drivers.

\015\012If you need to find out which plug is the cam, pull the plastic ring around the monitor off, and follow the wire from the cam down to near the power button.
