Common problems and solutions

The VCR shows that the memory is full, can't loop the video, etc.

  1. First, when a new memory card is used in the machine for the first time. Please format the memory card to FAT32 format on your computer and then format it on the camera, or the card was previously used on another type of device and needs to be formatted for use on this camera, or replace it with another new SANDISK32G Micro SD card.
  2. Check the sensitivity of G-sens. If the sensitivity is too high, the collision and shaking of the camera will trigger the G-sensor and the file will be locked.

The locked files cannot be overwritten.

If the locked files are accumulated, there will be no memory card to cycle through the records. (When parking protection is on, shaking can also cause too many stray files, which can also affect card reading and writing.)

The device will automatically power on or off.

  1. Please format the memory card to FAT32 format on the computer, and then format it on the camera.
