Odd noise....then dead

Plugged camera in after a couple months of non-use. Connected immediately and appeared to be working fine. About an hour later a loud “skwak” noise was heard from camera. Repeated in about another hour. Unplugged to power cycle. Plugged back in and camera appears dead. Tried to delete and re-install but no luck. Anyone see this before?

Welcome to the Wyze community @kstherk!
I haven’t herd of this specific issue and it definitely not normal. When you plug the camera in, is there any sign of life like an IR or indicator light turning in?

Have you tried flashing the firmware?

If flashing the firmware doesn’t work, You may want to contact Wyze Customer Support about this issue!

phone support is typically faster however this isn’t always true due to fluctuation in the amount of calls.
