Infrared stopped working

Have had a two wyze cams for over a year and one now shows purple rather than full colour during the day and the other no longer has the infrared working which is problematic because I use it in the nursery. Any ideas how to fix?

Sadly it might be time to buy new ones, unless you like to tinker. Searching on “purple” will yield a lot of hits about the IR filter.


Do a search on “infrared filter”. There are several threads about this type of thing. There is s tinted filter driven by a small solenoid inside the lens itself which, when for whatever reason, stops moving properly between day and night vision, will cause a purple hue in the picture.
Can be fixed sometimes if you like to tinker and there are replacement lenses also available. @Customer is right-if you don’t enjoy tinkering just for the sake of it, at the cost it’s faster and easier to replace.

Thanks! One of my v2s has this problem, always wondered why. Its funny, my older v1s are all still perfectly clear.

Sadly, it happens to all of us with age!:cry:
