I have a Street Guardian SG9665GC v2 2016 edition that's 2.5 years old. I guess it's out of warranty now. It just started rebooting over and over again. It starts up, then the screen slowly fades and it restarts again. Over and over again. Looks like a power issue to me. Maybe the capacitor died?

Any way to fix this? Any suggestions from the Street Guardian team?

Thanks.

I would start with trying a few of the simple and free things.
Test memory card with H2testw / try other memory card
Test camera on another power source ( wall charger / USB power bank )

My first V1 camera still do just fine in my friends car.

That almost always means a bad memory card.
Try another card

Test powering up with NO card as a test

Update firmware

Try another Mini USB power supply.

If all that fails I’m sure we can arrange a trade in
Discount upgrade for a newer SGGCX2PRO especially since you’re an original GC V2 customer.

Tried different power sources. Same thing.

Tried powering up without a card. Same thing.

The screen flickers and fades, like there's a power / hardware issue. It definitely doesn't look like a firmware issue.

Nice, i was going to mention a upgrade option for old customers, but i figured ill leave that to you.
Nothing last forever, and often you will find that when things finally decide to pack it in, then it are often in the worst possible time ( at least that's how it often is for me )
