repair of damaged pixy - communication with arduino does not work

Hello, I have 2 damaged PixyCam CMUcam5.
First - it is not detected by USB, leds are on.
Second - communication with pixy moon is correct, however communication with Arduino does not work. After connecting pixy to arduino I can’t program Adruino (reset permanently on)
When I connect the first camera, programming works.
Can I replace some elements from the first module so that the second one works correctly?

Hi, sorry, I’m not sure what’s going on, and unfortunately swapping components on Pixy is pretty difficult since they’re all SMD or BGA and thus not very user-friendly, unless you have a hot-air rework station and are experienced with this type of work.

@edge might have some additional wisdom to add…
