iSight seems to start after opening but shuts down again

I bought a second hand and defective external iSight. The tube-shaped one. You start it by rotating the lens. It makes a focussing sound and the green LED turns on but then it shuts down. As if there is some short circuit or defective component. Anyone's got a clue to what could be wrong or what to check? I opened it but didn't find any visual problems. The firewire cable is ok. But Macs I hook it up to don't see the webcam.

I noticed you never got an answer to this. Are you still having this problem?

No, I sold the iSight to somebody who was going to give it a try.
