Blinking Lights

Postby sinerge » Thu Aug 09, 2012 10:44 pm

Set up a F18910W wirelessly and it was working perfect for a about a week then I noticed the IR lights, the red light in the back and the green light on the power adapter were flashing and I could not access the camera on my phone anymore.

I unpluged it and pluged it back in but same story. I pluged it into a power strip in my office and then it worked perfect again but when I tried to plug it back into the wall outlet of the room it was in and even another outlet in that room I get the flashing lights.

Anyone know the deal with the schizo cam? Thanks!

How far is the camera away from the Router/AP where you are having trouble?

How many obstacles are between the camera and the Router/AP?

Also, please see these:

Thanks for the response. The cam was only about 10' away in the next room from the office which has my network equipment. Additionally, I plugged it back into my office power strip, which I mentioned in my inital post had just worked but now it's flashing now too. Very strange. I guess I'll put it through to Foscam tech support. Thanks.

Could you have some sort of ground fault issue with power in that other room?

Did you ever get this resolved? I just moved my camera from one outlet to another and it won't stop flashing :(
