IR cut HQ camera cannot display anything, IR filter stuck halfway

  1. Where did you get the camera module(s)?
  2. Model number of the product(s)?
  3. What hardware/platform were you working on?
    Pi4B Bullseye latest
  4. Instructions you have followed. (link/manual/etc.)
    Arducam manual
  5. Problems you were having?
    It has been working ok for a short while but now the filter seems to get stuck halfway and blocks the lens so nothing can be seen through the lens.
  6. The dmesg log from your hardware?
    There is no software problem message, this is hardware issue with the module
  7. Troubleshooting attempts you’ve made?
    trying to engage and disenage the filter using a cover over the photo resistor to see if it helps to make it work again.
  8. What help do you need?
    Troubleshooting steps to fix it, or is it best to return it?

ok it’s working again for now after I restarted the Pi, not sure what happened but will keep an eye on it…
