B0395 One of my v2.2 boards works and the other does not

  1. Where did you get the camera module(s)?

  2. Model number of the product(s)?
    camera board: B0395; lens: B0180

  3. What hardware/platform were you working on?
    raspberry pi 4bullseye with latest updates as of 10:00pm pst

  4. Instructions you have followed. (link/manual/etc.)

  5. Problems you were having?
    one of my v2.2 boards works and the other does not. I then tried the board that worked again just to make sure I didn’t do something to break the lens and it did work. Then I tried the other board one last time and still the same error. Libcamera tells me to try a new lens or a new ribbon cable. But that same lens and ribbon cable work on a different v2.2 board.

  6. The dmesg log from your hardware?-config.txt

# For more options and information see
# http://rpf.io/configtxt
# Some settings may impact device functionality. See link above for details

# uncomment if you get no picture on HDMI for a default "safe" mode

# uncomment the following to adjust overscan. Use positive numbers if console
# goes off screen, and negative if there is too much border

# uncomment to force a console size. By default it will be display's size minus
# overscan.

# uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output

# uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA)

# uncomment to force a HDMI mode rather than DVI. This can make audio work in
# DMT (computer monitor) modes

# uncomment to increase signal to HDMI, if you have interference, blanking, or
# no display

# uncomment for composite PAL

#uncomment to overclock the arm. 700 MHz is the default.

# Uncomment some or all of these to enable the optional hardware interfaces

# Uncomment this to enable infrared communication.

# Additional overlays and parameters are documented /boot/overlays/README

# Enable audio (loads snd_bcm2835)

# Automatically load overlays for detected cameras

# Automatically load overlays for detected DSI displays

# Enable DRM VC4 V3D driver

# Disable compensation for displays with overscan

# Enable host mode on the 2711 built-in XHCI USB controller.
# This line should be removed if the legacy DWC2 controller is required
# (e.g. for USB device mode) or if USB support is not required.


# Run as fast as firmware / board allows


  1. Troubleshooting attempts you’ve made?
    Use same lens, same ribbon cable, same raspberry pi & same os/updates bullseye latest on two camera boards. one of my v2.2 boards works and the other does not.

  2. What help do you need?
    Why the other same camera board can’t work? And how to fix it.

I believe I have figured out the problem. It looks like where the lens connects to the board got hot enough to melt the plastic.

I cleaned it up best I could but not enough I’m afraid. Seems like this board is done thanks guys.

Okay, our sales colleagues have arranged the replacement for you.
