Hi guys,

I have a problem with my "vicovation marcus 2" dashcam.

While it's plugged to the power source in the car, the camera often enters turn off and on again and again in an endless loop.
I have version V2.2G

maybe a battery problem? a firmwere update?

Thanks in advance for your help :)

Have you tried another memory card?

Also, try powering without a card inserted and see how it behaves.

I would also try another power source and/or cable if the above does not help.

HI,

first of all, thanks for responding.

1) I tried replacing the sd card and checked him on another dashcam so the sd card is not the problem, since he is working with another dashcam
2) I did tried another power source with "dashcam hardwire kit" and yet the same problem

Hi,

So i'ts been awaile now, unfortunately the problem occurred again.

I have tested it with and without the sd card: ( the source power for the test is my galaxy charger output 5 .0V - 1.55 A)
1) while working with the sd card, the cam loops
2) while working without the sd card the cam loops too

So i guess the sd card is not the problem, what could it be?

I fixed it today because I face a similar problem.
It happens because of 3 components on the inside. Name is Capacitor with type electrolytic capacitor 4F/2.7V. So you need to change it to the new one. This happened because the lifetime capacitor/performance was decreased.

This component function is to save voltage and sensor on turn-on /turn-off source from Car. So if this performance decrease, the system detects that source like turn-on/off. Make the system restart.
