Crashes in quotes because I'm not really sure that you can call it a crash. I don't know how to figure out what exactly is happening.
I've been trying to get my camera to work properly and have had some minor victories, but it's obviously not working the way it should be. I can take a picture and it will have some green banding across it, but trying to take a 10 second video clip shuts the pi off with just one red light on. I have to unplug it and plug it back in to regain access through ssh. When the video starts recording, you can see the camera sucking a lot of power because the LED's start to dim slightly. Then suddenly all but one red LED will go off. Most of the time the camera will finish filming the video and save it, but the video will have green banding and be choppy. After this, the pi will just sit there. I can't do anything through SSH until I unplug it and plug it back in.
Things to Note
I'm using this cell phone charger. As you can see, it's a 5V, 2.1A charger, so to the best of my knowledge, it should have no problem powering this setup.
I also have nothing else running, this is a fresh install of Raspbian and I'm literally just trying to take a video right now.
What I've Tried
- Updating the firmware
- Overclocking all the way to TURBO
- Lowering the bitrate on the video all the way down to 1000000bps
- Increasing GPU Memory Split to 256
Any help is greatly appreciated!
