red led on the board and green flashes few times on bootup

Troubleshooting attempts you’ve made?
double checked connection turned around flatcable to be sure
tried powering using multiple usb cables and directly on gpio

What help do you need?
Getting it detected and working :slight_smile:

Thanks for the information,
Can you provide photos of the cable connections and detailed photos of the front and back of the HAT?

as requested.

Also I did set the csi cam to arducam in
sudo /opt/arducam/jetson-io/

these are the options I get:
| Camera Arducam |
| Camera IMX219 |
| Camera IMX477 |


Sorry, having to spilt this up because of attachment restrictions.

Thanks for the photos,
The hardware connection looks normal,
But the driver report does not find the device, maybe the cable is damaged or the module is damaged.
Can you exec i2cdetect -r -y 6 and send me the result?

I did do the i2cdetect -r -y 1 when it was op the gpio pins and couldn’t detect it.
But attached it to a different board (B01)with a newly flashed image, and got it working there, so must be something that was wrong either with the board or my install, I’ll try the first board again at some point
but this can be marked as solved for me, thank you for your time.

Glad to hear it’s working. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
