I have an old Wyze Cam Pan with a weird problem. It rotates past the first stopping point when booting and turns itself off. My other Wyze Cam Pans that I own have a very definite stopping point when you first boot them up. On boot up they rotate to the right till they hit the sticking point, then to the left, but this one camera I have rotates to the right, then past the sticking point and turns itself off. When I manually move my good cameras on their rotation access, they have that stopping point when trying to manually rotate them to the back that they cannot rotate past, however my camera with the problem has no stopping point. I can rotate the camera multiple times in a circle with no stopping.
I have tricked the bad camera into turning on and actually working by acting as the stopping point when booting the camera and forcing it to stop by hand when it hits the point at which I think it should normally stop. When I do this the camera boots and works properly, UNTIL it loses power. When power is restored, it attempts to rotate all the way to the right, past the stopping point where it should hit, and keeps going until it turns itself off.
Has anyone else ever ran into this problem with the camera rotation no longer stopping where it should when booting the camera? Is there something physically broken inside the camera that should be stopping it from rotating too far, like my working cameras? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. This camera is over a year old and out of warranty, so if anyone has suggestions on how I can take it apart and fix this issue it would be greatly appreciated.
