EdiMax 3030: Blocks Of Color?

Recommended Posts

Can anybody say what is going on here? (the blocks of color, not the heavy pixelation)...


The cam is inside a garden shed - sort of in "Burn-In/Test" mode.


First thing that came to mind is that it is sharing that shed with an IR-equipped cam, so I unplugged it - but no change:

(the light bco the motion-sensing flood that I triggered when going in to unplug the IR cam)


I tried powering it down and then back up. Pic was ok for maybe five minutes, then same-old-same-old.


This is an el-cheapo cam, but I've had pretty good luck with one just like it at an outdoor location and never seen anything like this.

Sensor is burned out. Next step is landfill. Did you use it where there was direct sunlight?

No. That one is fresh out of the box and I did not even unpack it until late in the day on an overcast day.


Also, it's identical sister has been working a-ok for most of the season looking out over a bay in all sorts of weather.


Could the IR-emitting cam in the same shed have burned out the sensor?
