External camera for tablet ?

  RufusChucklebutty 02:32 10 Apr 2019

My Chinese android tablets camera died, and the micro SD card port has died on it too, I use the tablet for selling on eBay and gumtree, I don't need anything high spec.

  1. Are the cameras generic and can I get another , just swop it over and go ?

  2. Can I get a cheap external camera to plug into the micro USB port ?

  3. Are some USB ports only for charging and not for data ?

  1. Probably not worth the trouble of trying to get and change the camera especially if its built into the motherboard.

  2. you can get external cameras most advertised are inspection cameras but a web cam and usb micro adaptor should work fine.

  3. Some (very few) USb ports are just for charging but those on a tablet should be for data as well

OK I've found out what it is, a KYT ( brand ) 973 - V 2.0 and its ribbon just slots in place in a clip.

Still no idea where to get one from though.
