  2. Use the tip of a spudger to push on either side of the the iSight camera cable connector to walk it out of its socket on the logic board. The cable connector is small and delicate, so make sure to nudge it out a little bit at a time from each side, alternating until it is fully out. A spudger or tweezers are ideal for this.
