@chas9000c Ok, one last thing you can try if you're up for it... Carefully and I mean carefully remove the white shell.... As mentioned, be very careful sliding the camera out of the lens (upper) portion of the shell. It is very easy to dislodge the black portion of the lens from the camera board. Once you get it out try unplugging the while jst cable and plugging in back in again. If that doesn't work try separating the 2 camera boards (they come apart very easily) and again remount them... Test the camera again. If it comes back to life again be very careful putting it back into the shell....

Other than that you will probably need a new camera....

@Aislinn, thanks for the info. I tried what you suggested. (Thanks for the warnings about the camera lens.) Still no luck unfortunately, so looks like I'm out a camera. Thanks again.

@chas9000c,

I don't know how long you have had the camera or how long EZ-Robot's warranties them for, but you should file a warranty request on the contact us page.

They have been very good about replacing failed parts so far.
