Good morning,
I'm having a lot of trouble with a picam noir. When I use raspistill:

Code: Select all

 raspistill -o test.png
mmal: Cannot read camera info, keeping the defaults for OV5647
mmal: mmal_vc_component_create: failed to create component 'vc.ril.camera' (1:ENOMEM)
mmal: mmal_component_create_core: could not create component 'vc.ril.camera' (1)
mmal: Failed to create camera component
mmal: main: Failed to create camera component
mmal: Camera is not detected. Please check carefully the camera module is installed correctly
vcgencmd get_camera returns supported=-1 detected=0

I2C and camera are activated in raspi-config

I'm on new install with updates done on a raspberry pi 3B+

Can you use the Pi camera?

Make sure the contacts on the ribbon cable are matched to the contact pins in the camera socket at both ends. Also make sure the cables are properly aligned and not an an angle.
