I have the same problem a second time 1 month later. Same issue, but I paste the connector with a very little bit of bison glue.

What's DOS?

For dissassembling no problem. First dissassenbly down side.

For assembling, take very care assembly the upside first do not push strongly.

There is no difficulty if you do it in calm and in the same way for assembly and  dissassembly.

Re: Webcam unplug can't show up with Fn+F5

Many thanks. I have had an Edge 11 for about 10 months, and have suffered this problem since almost new. To be honest, I was beginning to doubt my laptop even had a camera (but I was sure I remembered testing it when I got it).

 

Anyway, I carefully removed the bezel, and sure enough, the camera connector had been dislodged, and was partially out of the socket. On pushing it back in, everything came to life as it should.

 

Many, many thanks.
