Today DuartmaN over at instructables is going to show you how to build a USB LED light from an old webcam.
Disassemble the webcam and remove the pcb.
Use the lens support to fix the LED, in my case I needed to make a 5mm hole with a driller.
Solder the 200 Ohms resistor to the LED.
Cute the USB cable end connector and connect the cable in your PC to find the 5 Volts wires.
Then, connect the 2 wires (in my case the black and red) to the LED, the positive cable must be connected to the anode LED terminal (the big terminal), in my case it’s where I soldered the resistor.
Protect one of the terminals with adhesive tape or a small piece of plastic wire cover to avoid a short circuit.
Fix the LED to the the lens support with hot glue and mount your new webcam LED light.
