If I stop the engine and start it back, the camera works ok. If I stop the camera and restart it, it works ok.
The camera is new (less than a month) and the issue showed after a few weeks of flawless working.
The following issues came to my mind:
1. card issue
2. camera issue
3. car battery / voltage problem
Did anyone had an issue like mine ?
i have a brand new 119s and a microSD card loaded. the message says i need to format the card. If the camera doesn't format it how do i do it. I am an Apple computer user and there are no instructions for that.
that should answer it. i ordered a new 64 -128 so gotta get me another. that should do it. Thanks i will let you know if it doesn't . thanks for rapid reply
I put a new ScanDisk Ultra 32GB . the video screen works for awhile then goes black, and the menu button does not function. didn't need to format. as i think i mentioned i have an Apple MacBookPro that i use
Don't use Sandisk cards but Lexar, Transcend and Samsung Evo Class10 and you can use 64GB cards but they'll only format in a Windows PC and then automatically want to format again in the camera when you power it up.(I actually use a Lexar 633x 128GB card although 2x64GB cards would be better with one up and one spare) You also need at least a 2amp charger connected to the cam and not the GPS mount and the cam cannot rattle in the mount (that's what the Eva Foam pads are for with the A119S V2).
The screen times out (goes black) according to the screensaver setting in the Menu options and you can only select the Menu button after pressing the Rec button to cease Recording Mode. You have to understand how all the Modes (Parking Mode and Time Lapse) work to use the Viofo properly.
thanks again. i will give it all a go and hopefully that does the trick.
Is this thing compatible with my Apple computer?
got it the little chip goes in the big chip that goes into the slot on the side. At 68 years olde i seem to be a knucklehead. sorry to waste anyones time
