Power LED flashing rapidly and camera offline?

A rapidly flashing green power LED usually indicates that the camera's firmware has encountered an error. This is rare but can occasionally happen after an unexpected power cut (if the camera is in the middle of performing a task), due to incorrect settings in the camera (too many enabled tasks, conflicting settings etc.), or due to a faulty SD card. 

This can usually be resolved with a reset of the camera. To do this first power down the camera and leave it for at least 10-15 minutes, then follow the steps on the page linked below to reset the camera. Note: a reset will clear all changed settings in the camera and revert it back to the defaults.

How to reset the camera

If the reset does not clear the error then you should get in touch with our support team using the "contact us" form as they will be able to advise on the next steps to resolve the issue.
