Missing capacitor

Unread post by JonathanG » Tue Feb 13, 2018 2:08 pm

Hi, My camera no longer works and I am past the warranty period. It appears that a component has fallen off. It's labelled "L6" on the lower right corner of the board (very close to the screw). I have another oCAM and compared it. It looks like the missing component is a 1005 surface mounted capacitor but I'm not sure, and I don't want to try to figure it out lest I accidentally dislodge the component on the working board. Can you please tell me what the component is so I can replace it?

Thanks.

Can you please take a picture and post it?

It should be an inductor.
WITHROBOT people will let you know the inductor specification tomorrow.

We are sorry but you need wait until next Monday when our engineers come back from the Lunar New Year's Holiday vacation.

The L6 is a 1005(0402) size bead with 300~600 Ohms resistance.
You can solder a small wire or 0 Ohm resistor.

I’m sorry but I dont understand. I know the size is 1005(0402) but don’t know what a “small bead” is. And I don’t understand what you mean by soldering a wire to it. Are you saying that, in lieu of the components, we could comment the leads with a small wire? Thanks.

Yes.
Because the bead is a sort of inductor for reducing the power noise, you can replace the bead with a conductive wire since there is no serious noise on the power rails.
