Try to disconnect power for 2 sec. in the camera with 128GB and check if it is still working
They don’t support 128 GB cards, however I have run them since v2 and in my pan cams no problem. I don’t think that should be an issue. I currently have no operating V3 cams, just dead ones. I don’t see cards bricking the camera in that way. Perhaps possible card errors but not changing anything else in the chipset to make the cam inoperable. I have seen a ton of posts about this problem but most of them don’t mention if they are using a SD card or power cycling. Many do say though that it’s happening after a failed firmware update. Think I will take one apart to see if anything looks crispy inside it.
It just occurred to me after reading lately with all these V3’s that stopped working. I wonder if everyone is also checking the power adapter? @Garretsdaddio, I see you mention you had a problem around the same time as a power outage. If the Wyze cam is less than $30, with power adapter, the adapter can’t be worth/cost much more than $2ish. So, I encourage anyone with a problem camera to check the power adapter too.
I don’t even use the adapters that came with my Wyze cameras, unless I am also using their cable. Most of my cameras are using a much longer non-Wyze cable, so, I bought a handful of 2.3 amp adapters to insure there’s adequate power reaching the camera.
You might try removing the SD card during setup, and insert after you have it going. Re SD cards, I can get abt 2 weeks of continuous video on a 32gb card if I set the video quality down to SD from HD.
I thought the SD and HD setting was for streaming quality and not SD card recording quality. I thought that I compared file sizes on my SD card after changes on my V2’s and they had no difference. About 4 days for a 32 gb card no matter if set to HD or SD.
Well, I just checked, and yer right, I only have about 4 days of video on the 32gb SD card. I dont think I dreamed 2 weeks, maybe an upgrade changed that. Oh, on another camera, a V2, I have 5.5 days of video on the SD card, but it’s set to Event Only recording and no sound and video is set to SD quality. That camera, when I first got it, was monitoring an indoor room with very little activity and that may have been when I got 2 weeks on the SD card.
So what’s the issue/question
