Yes I checked the cabling. Any best way to troubleshoot?
Is the red light on the Pi camera on ?
And you started the video stream from the menu at the top?
I found the issue... the thin cable needed to be reseated.
But now the video that comes on is a snapshot, hardly updates.
That is a mode. You can set whether you get snapshots or actual streaming video.
Also getting no image: cable looks to be set properly, red LED on the camera, camera lens protector thing removed. When I roll over the image space in Control, I get the classic "dead image" placeholder. Before I open up the bottom (again) I'm wondering if there's any software problems I should look at?
I took a look at the /root/bin/webcamd file and noticed it was set to "auto" and that the webcamd logs show it looking on USB. I changed it to
and also tried it with a spare raspi camera (v1.30) and got the same error:
$ sudo /root/bin/webcamd
Starting up webcamDaemon...
--- Configuration: ----------------------------
usb options: -r 640x480 -f 10
raspi options: -fps 10
No camera detected, trying again in two minutes
(it repeats that last line)
Check the web cam settings in octoprint->settings as the URL must match (that happened to me, when I forgot to click static lease on my router and for some reason got a new address via DHCP and the URL didn't match so the link became broken)
Octoprint just steals the image from MJPG Streamer that runs on the Pi on port 8080, so goto the following URL:
And see if you can see an image?
I think the problem is that webcamd isn't finding the camera.
"No camera detected, trying again in two minutes"
If I go to http://10.0.1.80 I see octopi, but there's nothing listening at 8080:
$ telnet 10.0.1.80 8080
telnet: connect to address 10.0.1.80: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host
Digging through the webcamd code, I've found a problem camera detection. Maybe the red LED isn't a sign the camera is fully connected? Time to open up the base.
$ vcgencmd get_camera
