init camera status = 4100

I am trying to get the 16MP camera I bought working, I downloaded the software and got it all to compile, but I keep getting that error. I am using the cable that came with the camera, and I don’t have a spare one. Any suggestions on what else to try before I send it back?

Hello,

Don’t worry and I will try my best to help you.

Which platform are you using? Pi4 or Pi3? It seems our driver does not support this platform. I Please tell me your hardware platform and I will help you add it support.

 

My plan was to use it with a Pi Zero W. I thought that was also supported.

Hello,

Yes, I have checked our library and it does support Pi zero w. Have you enable the i2c_vc?

Before using it, you should run the enable_i2c_vc command.

 

Yes I enabled that and double checked all steps in your guide

I also triple check that /boot/config.txt has it and I rebooted yet again. No change is responses

 

Hello,

Thanks for your patient, If these things are done, it is likely to be a hardware problem.
Have you tried changing another cable line? Don’t worry if the hardware is defective, we will give you a replacement.

 

I do not have another cable of this size.

Hi rich,

Don’t worry I will notify our sales staff to resend you a few cables, I have tested it on Pi zero w and it works normally.

 

 

 

 

Hi,

Can you use TeamViewer remotely?I can help you diagnose the problem remotely first.

Hi,

I still haven’t received your reply, can you run this command and send me a screenshot of the information

Run the script camera_i2c from utils folder and send output message to me.

sudo chmod +x camera_i2c rpi3-gpiovirtbuf

./camera_i2c

Do you need anything else?

I can try team viewer from my Mac, if you must, I am not putting a normal display on the Pi

 

Hi,

I want to ensure if your i2c bus is normal. After run ./camera_i2c, can you see the i2c address?

 

 

No I sent you all the output I get.

Hello,

If you just use i2cdetect command, you can’t get anything, because the camera is not power on.

You should used ./camera_i2c then give me your screenshot as I attached for you.

We don’t seem to be making progress here. We established some time ago that there was a communication problem or the camera was bad. How is this going to get resolved?
