Hi there, 

 

I've 2 cameras and one of the two is going to offline. I can't add again to the base... Tried these method:

1: "Add new device" button after remove these device

2: remove all camera's and "Add new device". Then one of them was added.

3: Remove base, reboot and I started like when everything was new: added the base, camera 1, and tried the camera 2.. The second wasnt add. The blue led is blinking blinking and nothing happened. After cca 2 min the blue blinking will yellow and that's it.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

Hi @szabi510

 

Have you contacted customer support regarding this 1 camera?

 

I would like to suggest trying to sync a few times back to back, but it sounds like you have already done that.

I have made sure the camera was charged and tried to sync camera and base station and it will not sync. 

This has not happened before. 

When I put the charging wire in the back port the blue light flashes for about 2 seconds and then goes out. I pushed the sync at the base and then at the camera and nothing happens. 

my application on phone cannot find the camera.

Did you try removing the battery in the camera, and then reinserting it?

We removed a camera because it wasn’t working.  We are unable to add back.

Hi @Abmudge

 

Have you tried to press the base station sync button, then the camera button for 1sec? you don't need to go through the apps visual instructions.

We tried everything a dozen times. In the mean time, I was reading loads about the cameras going off line. We don't want to deal with this, so we returned the system which we bought through HSN. It was an ARLO 4, and perhaps it was the older version. This one was so simple to install, and we really liked until we learned of so many individuals having g so many issues with the cameras going off line. We will replace it but with what I don't know. Thank you so much for your response.
