I have a Wyze Cam Pan. For months (since August 2020), I have been able to have it connected to my home network set to record locally and continuous recording, unplug from power, take to another location, plug into power and record for hours with successful playback from the SD card on my laptop. Recently, that success has stopped. I can have the camera running, kill the WiFi and it will keep recording off of WiFi. But if I unplug it, power back on and try to record without WiFi, it does not record.
As stated previously, this was not a problem until my last outing about 1 month ago. Here are details on the camera:
Model - WYZECP1
Firmware - 184.108.40.206
As far as troubleshooting,
- I have ejected and reinserted the SD card,
- I reformatted the SD card,
- I tested by connecting to WiFi, powering down the camera, powering down the router, powering up the camera and trying to record (blue and yellow lights flashing), powering off the camera, powering the router back up and then powering on the camera - No luck
- I have powered off the router, left the camera powered on and tested recording - that worked (solid blue light)
NOTE: When it worked before, the blue and yellow lights flashed so nothing indicated anything was different until this last outing and round of troubleshooting.
