Introduction

The button is to take snapshots and is actually a chip that is sending information to the motherboard to take a still shot of the camera view. If this connection is broken, you will need to replace it.

Parts

No parts required.

Remove the two 8mm Phillips#0 screws on the back cover. The motherboard is attaching the two covers together, so don't separate them entirely just yet.

Power button? Does this actually turn the camera on and off? When I push it, it seems to just pause the screen for a moment. I thought maybe it was taking still shots, but I cant seem to find a folder with any in it. I've checked all Logitech's default folder directories. (Trying to figure out what this button does, or can actually be used for.) If you want to turn a webcam off, you usually just unplug them.

Edit: Manual says its a snapshot button, but I'd love for this to start/stop OR pause recording. Hm.....

I've tried to properly update this to make it more accurate, but I'm unsure how the process works. Maybe I submitted it for review? I'm not sure, but my changes have not taken effect, yet.
