CAMERA NO FOUND - Karma problem

are the camera the latest version. If not then update it via pc and not via controller karma.


Try to turn the camera separately AFTER the drone/gimbal turns on.


If it fails then take a table fan and point it directly infront of the drone when turned on for basic airflow and let it be turned on for minutes until it turns off itself.

If it fails.
Disconnect everything including the batteries and press power button on drone and camera without batteries to drain he power and start over again.
 
It looks like most of the connection are fine between the drone and controller, you can try to open the harness pulling out and reinstall the camera when the connection is on, sometimes you need to do it again and again.
I also have the connection problem but it is " karma is not found", after pulling out and insert back the battery several times (sometimes only one time, sometimes 3 or 4 times), it works normal again.
 
I have camera not found fault.

I reset the controller and camera and did the below solution:

Camera now shows connected by updates and was showing video on controller once and then it froze with camera not responding so still no luck, please help!

V2.50

 
Managed to get the camera connected for a short space of time before it stopped responding while there was a compass interference in upbuilt Wi-Fi area, will try a Wi-Fi free location next time.
 
but my camera turn on when i turn on the dorne, so, its weird that the controller dont detect the camera. The important thing to say is that, in the screen of the gopro, appears the icon of USB and not the icon of the drone, so, i dont uderstand
I’m going to guess the usb connection icon might be due to battery low?

Sounds like you might have dirty connectors, try spraying some circuit board cleaner into the camera's connectors and then blow it out with some compressed air. make sure you stabilizer is on the latest firmware, I have seen some weird issue on versions under 2.

Its possible that the camera or stabilizer has a bad connector on it, if there is someone near you with a Karma drone it would be good to swap parts to see which is causing the problem if the above doesnt help.
