Thank you for reaching out.
I would suggest you two things,
- Make sure to try with a different USB 3.0 port on your computer, make sure not to use a USB hub, connect your camera to a dedicated USB 3.0 port.
- Also, try downloading the USB drivers for your chipset and then try to connect the camera again. I’m thinking that the original issue (the power loss) might have caused some other issues that weren’t fully solved, one being the USB drivers.

I actually fixed this issue without reinstalling Windows 10 after several rounds of reinstalling and switching USB ports with no luck.
Here's What I Did:
I uninstalled the camera devices from device manager by right clicking on the individual items.
I uninstalled the camera software. I restarted.
I disabled my anti-virus software. I deleted my Windows Hello recognition information. I unplugged the camera. I reinstalled the software.
After the restart, I plugged the camera back in.
I right clicked on one of the camera devices in the device manager (still not showing up properly) and said update driver. I let it automatically find the driver. After that, everything was properly setup with the virtual driver in Device Manager and the camera is properly recognized with the Windows 10 Camera app instead of giving me an error.
Which one of these steps is critical to making the camera work again? I have no idea but I hope this helps somebody. It was very frustrating to not have this camera work properly.
Thank you very much for methodically documenting your procedure for others to follow, Tom! Sometimes, suggestions for fixes can sound almost like mythical rumor (like "blow your breath on the pins of your Nintendo cartridges to make them work better), so it's really useful to have a set of clear steps to follow. Thanks for sharing!
