#1 Post by jt76 » Wed Mar 03, 2021 1:17 am

My camera cable was cut. I changed the cable i tried a new camera but no success. Device manager shows no camera attached. Is there a fuse in morherboard for camera?

Did you get the right cable?
You need FRU 04X0875/04X0876 for non-touch, or 04X5252/04X5253 for touch-screen models.
Did you connect it properly?
Did you disconnect both batteries before you disconnected the LCD itself?
AFAIK there's no camera fuse.

I ordered a cable from china but when nothing happend i tried a genuine one from a working x240 but no luck.
I didnt disconect the battery in first place that cause me the blow of backlight fuse. I solder the fuse. The screen is now working but still no camera

Maybe the camera itself got damaged?
