My Camera Is Not Recognized As A Camera Device.

I bought the JD humanoid a few years ago and put it aside for at least 3years. I used ARC before. However, I try using ARC for connecting the humanoid recently but the camera is not recognized. Is there something I missed out?

Thank you for your kind assistance

Hi 

When my camera did not work, I looked at:

Select Start > Settings > Privacy & security > Camera, then make sure Camera access is turned on.

This setting lets any user on the device choose if they want apps to be able to access the camera.
Note: If you can't change the Camera access setting, you'll need an administrator on the device to turn it on for you.

Hi 
Thank you for your response. In fact, the wifi scanning detects a device connected to camera port but it complains that it is not a camera device.

Nomad is asking if you reseated both ends of the cable. The camera cable may be loose inside the camera. A small Philips screwdriver can be used to open the camera shell. Be very careful to not damage the camera lens. Disconnect and reconnect the cable from within the camera.

Hi
I have removed the cable and reconnected it. The problem remains. I bought the development kit together with the JD Robot. Both cameras encounter the same problem. By the way, my hardware was bought a few years ago. Hence, it might be of older version. My camera does not come with a camera shell.

Here is the error message I capture from the camera skill:

Camera Initialized: EZB://192.168.1.166 @ 320x240
EZ-B v4 Camera Error: Client disconnected
Camera Disabled

Looks like you’re using the robot in client mode. Try resetting the ezb and use it in AP mode. The default ip addressed the camera is 192.168.1.1

Looks like you’re fighting with network configuration. If you’re a bit new to networking, first get it working in default AP mode and then go from there

Reviewing your logs it seems the ezb is on 192.168.1.173

 But your error message says a different ip for the camera. So you’ll need to use the same ip for camera and ezb

or just go back to using AP mode

Hi
I am using two different ip of which one is for JD and the other one for development. I believe one of my cameras spoiled since I have managed to get one operating fine. By the way, my JD is using ESB v4/2 and development kit is using ESB v4/1.

Again, thanks for everybody's advice.
