Camera Initialized: EZB:// @ 320x240
EZ-B v4 Camera Error: The operation has timed out.
Camera Disabled

What should I do?

Upgrade to ARC Pro

Synthiam ARC Pro is a cool new tool that will help unleash your creativity with programming robots in just seconds!

You will have to use the scan button to identify the IP address of the EZB and camera. The scan buttons for the connection and camera control are circled in the image below. When your PC is connected directly to the robot, that is called AP Mode, and the robot will always have the IP Address However, when the robot is connected to your local wifi network, the IP address will vary; therefore, a scan is required. If your robot controller were purchased after 2016, the scan would display a list of discovered devices; consequently, you do not need to scan.
