Camera module not working

Thu Nov 02, 2017 2:34 pm

my raspberry pi camera module v1.3 is not working, try taking a photo, here is the error

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ raspistill -o image.jpg mmal: No data received from sensor. Check all connections, including the Sunny one on the camera board

so i used this command $ vcgencmd get_camera

output: supported=1 detected=1

so the red light comes on on the camera but doesnt take a picture. Tried rebooting to no success. Definetly not static discharge as the RPi still detects it. What can br the problem?

Is it the Omnivision sensor or the Sony sensor or some OEM camera?

Have you checked the Sunny connector is fully seated?

What's in /boot/config.txt?

My RPi with a "genuine" rev1.3 camera has

Code: Select all

gpu_mem=128
start_x=1
Try adding

Code: Select all

disable_camera_led=1
