My Blink was working fine when I was using batteries. Once I switched over to USB power it stopped recording and wouldn’t display live view.
Tech support though it might be the sync module and sent me a new one. Swapped it out and still the same issue.
If I put batteries in the camera everything works. If I plug the camera in (with or without batteries in) then it doesn’t work; the live view or capturing motion.
I tried two different USB cables and two different power plugs; one of them being the plug from the replacement sync module. No luck with either of them.
Looking through amazon for a possible cord/plug option and I noticed many reviewers saying that they too had issue with the camera working with USB power.
So it would seem this is a known issue? I have an XT camera as well that is plugged in and that one works like a champ,
Any ideas/thoughts/suggestions etc. on this issue?
