I re-seated the connector, but no luck. I have two of the Rev 1.3 cameras and they work perfectly. The two V2.1 cameras do not work.

I experienced the same thing. I realized the problem with mine, was that when I clicked my v2 camera into my Raspberry pi case camera holder slot, that snap was a resistor popping off the 8mp camera board. :roll: If any one is having this issue, there may be a tiny pair of contacts with a letter to mark where something is missing. My v1 camera did not have components so close to that edge.

Old thread but seems quite some people still facing this issue.

Instead of checking the connector first (which I bet most people got right) remember if you're using raspbian that the camera is deactivated by default and that if you want to activate it you should run `sudo raspi-config` then go to 5. Interfacing options > 1. Camera > Yes > Finalize. This should reset the raspberry and get the camera working most of the time.

I solved the problem. I updated the firmware version.
By :

Code: Select all

sudo rpi-update

Return to “Camera board”
