Thanks kindly for the reply & suggestions. I will try the reset button & see if that helps. Unfortunately, the other suggestions are not within my limited ability to do some of those things now. I no longer have a second mobius because I had it hard wired into a car that I've since sold. I don't even know if I have a battery or a capacitor. I just found a box of spare parts that I had for various mounting options & in that box is what appears to be a new battery along with a precision screwdriver to fit for removing the screws. I'm "thinking" (given the presence of what looks like a new battery) that either I bought a spare or swapped it out for a capacitor at some point. I will take it apart for a look see & will report back. It also appears that I bought one of my 2 cameras in later 2015. This one (with the C lens) was the second purchase & probably still in 2015. That being said, it might make a bunch of sense to buy a new one - they're not all that expensive (in relative terms). Not sure at this point which camera I have but would like to get an identical replacement as it has worked so perfectly for so many years. I do know for sure that it has a C lens - it sticks outside the case - I'm assuming that it's a C2. The small light above the heat-sinks is rectangular as opposed to a circle or oval. Any help with identification of this camera would be greatly appreciated. Cheers = RogerI've yet to run into this myself so i can't speak from experience.
But troubleshooting it from webcam mode seems the easiest to see instant results.
Try to hit the reset button, sometimes it works.
Try to disconnect and reconnect the lens ribbon from PCB.
IF it still persist, and you have another mobius camera on your hands, try to swap the lens. If it fixed after swapping - its a problem with the lens module. If its not fixed - its problem with the PCB.
If it runs on battery - try swap/capacitor connected to USB power. faulty battery may cause loads of issues.
