BisonCam disconnect

Fresh rebase install on a laptop and the builtin webcam no longer works. It was fine ootb until yesterday so it has to be software rather than the physical thing. ‘dmesg | grep usb’ shows many repeats like this:
[ 2569.524669] usb 1-1: Found UVC 1.00 device BisonCam,NB Pro (5986:9102)
[ 2613.847014] usb 1-1: USB disconnect, device number 17

I’m not sure that the disconnect lines are really what they appear to be but I see the camera keeps failing to capture anything. The situation has remained the same after installing guvcview and webcamoid. What should I do?

For unknown reasons it has sorted itself out after several reboots.
