I have a camera v3 that I bought in Nov 2020 so just two years back. I didn’t use it for a while or didn’t look for past playback. I tried to do that just yesterday but realized that the camera wasn’t recording to the card.
I then tried to format the card in my laptop but that didn’t help. The camera didn’t recognize the sd card. I tried a different card from my working v2 camera and still doesn’t detect the micro-SD card. I then put the v3 card into the v2 and there the older v2 camera recognized it. So I clearly see that the v3 camera is broken and not recognizing the SD card.
I have tried 3 cards. SanDisk regular and Ultra and different sizes 32 GB and 8 GB. Same results. What can I do? It is out of warranty. Can I somehow try to fix? The firmware for v3 cam is latest. Can I potentially open the camera and clean it? I am fairly handy and it might be a good learning experience if there is any hope of recovering.
What firmware are you using? “the latest” means a lot off different things to different people. If you need to play doctor there are some videos on here someplace on how to take the V3 apart and reassemble.
V3 in the operating room for a different operation.
