I am using a RPi 3 Model B V1.2 with the V2.1 camera module.
I have my Pi running "motion" for security. For reasons unknown, the camera lost connection and refused to reconnect (couldn't even take a still shot using raspistill - receiving the "Camera is not detected..." error.
No big deal. I'll use it on my Pi Zero W V1.1. Worked fine, and then eventually stopped working again, with the same error.
I figured the camera was shot, so I ordered TWO new ones. Plugged one into my Pi 3, and voila! It works again!
For 20 mins, then stops. Also won't work on my Pi Zero (same error as always). This goes for both BRAND NEW CAMERAS.
What I've tried:
- Quadruple checking that the cables are in correctly
- Ensuring the small connector on the camera board is tightly connected
- Updating/upgrading firmware
- Enlarging GPU allowance
- Closing all services that might be using the camera
- Ensuring camera is enabled
- Probably more things that I can't even think of.
I could really use a hand here. New to this forum, so if there's any information I should have included that I didn't, please inform.
