Camera Disabled?

When ever I try to start my camrea in my Roil I get an error: "Camera Disabled"
When I turn Roil on the camera light blinks blue so I know it's plugged in and getting power. It's just from the ARC I can't seem to start it. Anyone run into this?

Are you able to connect to your EZB? Which mode are you in, wp or client?
#2  
I can connect. I have the movement working. I have tried it in both WP and client. I'm currently using client.
#3  
Try unplugging and re-plugging the camera. If the connection isn't tight it can cause that error. Camera may have power, but not a good signal.

Yeah I've defiantly tried unplugging it. I just pushed the clip down in case and tried connecting still says Camrea Disabled.

Does the blue light flicker? You may need to cup the camera in your hand to see the light flicker.
#7  
It flickers when it first turns on. After that nothing.

Hmmm, I had a camera that did that... turned out to be faulty so it was sent back to ez robot...
