My timelapse camera has not been working well since I repackaged it into the Raspberry Pi case. The picture has been washed out when I tried to use it outdoors. I swapped cameras, it worked on another Pi. I'm sure the camera connector has finally failed. If it wasn't before, it is now. So I tried to use the defective Pi Zero W (wifi doesn't work on it) and things were going well until I broke that camera connector, too! Dammit.
The rest of the board is working so I looked around for a replacement part number, but I know in my heart that after buying the part, shipping, and getting my friend to solder it for me, it's going to cost more than a new board. So that's what I did, I bought a new $5 Pi Zero without the "W". Not going to throw away the two broken Zero's. They still work and I already soldered the 40-pin header, so I'll be able to use them to play with I/O when I get around to it. Meanwhile I've got them both working headless via USB. Just waiting for delivery right now...
