I purchased the new Dash camera from GearBest, found the camera is just dispalys "VIOFO" on the screen and Rec LED is on, None o the buttons are working except power button.
The reset button did not helped either!
Could you please let me know How to get it working?
Returning this junk to amazon.
Except that the instructions clearly say to reconnect it to the PC and the light will flicker and then the device will reboot. I can accept that a device I purchase doesn't come with the latest drivers/firmware/etc but to have to flash a device to get it to work out of the box is the definition of garbage hardware.
Was having the issue "camera freezing while showing XXXXX on screen". So went the instruction in the
and all is working fine now.
If it is out of warranty or you just don't care about warranty you can try the following.
Try to power it on and twist the camera to a downwards position, then It might start up. It did it for me
I then opened the camera up and removed the camera assembly. Trust me it's super easy to do. For me the problem was that the connection between the main board and the flex cable of the camera was half loose which caused at first a fuzzy and black screen and then just the start up logo. undoing the cable and redoing it properly fixed it for me. I hope it helps.
Btw on the connection there is a small grey bar which acts as the locking mechanism for the connection so lift it op pull it out and reinsert it again properly closing the grey bar.
