Wow, is that paragraph one sentence, lol? Sure makes it hard to read!

I’m guessing the unit never completed its firmware update, and is now bricked. You should be able to fix that though, if you have a microSD card.

First, go here and download the most recent Cam Pan Firmware:

That should give you a demo.bin file. If it gives you a .zip file then unzip it. If you end up with a .bin file that is named anything other than demo.bin, rename it.

Put that demo.bin file on the SD card in the root directory.

Power off your camera, insert the SD card.

Hold the setup button, plug in your USB cable, keep holding the setup button for 3-6 seconds.

Once the light is solid blue, release the button and wait for 3-4 minutes. The camera will reboot and change light status during this time.

After it is done, your camera should be functioning again.
