DAY 1

my doorbell video only shows the top of the screen when answered. When setting up a live call it works fine. this seems to be a known problem.

To resolve the issue, what we are going to do is to reset the doorbell.

 

For us to do that, we need to remove the doorbell from the wall mount.

 

are you familiar with that as a fix to this problem?

 

hmm i guess not. I'll go and remove the doorbell and return with it

 

As of now, there is no reported an issue like that, Craig. Now, to isolate the issue, what are going to do is reset the device.

 

really...

https://community.arlo.com/t5/Arlo-Video-Doorbell/Arlo-Video-Doorbell-Video-Audio-issues-ONLY-happen...

 

Because the doorbell should show the whole screen whether it is portrait or landscape mode.

 

anyway, i have it here with me now

 

All right. Now, please remove the doorbell first to your account. To remove a device from your Arlo account: -Launch the Arlo app or log in to your Arlo account at arlo.com. -Tap or click Settings > My Devices and select the device that you want to -remove. -Scroll to the bottom of the page and tap or click Remove Device. -Tap or click Yes to confirm that you want to remove the device.

 

Once done, please reset the device. To perform a reset on your Arlo Essential Video Doorbell with the reset button on the device: 1. Locate the release pin that came with your Arlo Essential Video Doorbell. Alternatively, you can also use a paperclip or a similar object. 2.

The LED ring around the doorbell button on the front of the device flashes white when it successfully begins the reset process.

Pretty pathetic service @ Divya
Anyone else have a faulty doorbell that works ok when you set up a video, but only half the screen is there when answering a doorbell press?

Hey @Chosko

 

I took a look at you case with support and I viewed your screenshots. I have a few questions for you if you don't mind.

 

When did this issue first occur?

 

Did you happen to factory reset the camera with support and the issue still remains? 

 

It looks like the half screen issue occurs over an answered doorbell call but not a manually initiated live stream, is that correct? 

 

Which version of the Arlo app are you using? 

 

Do you know which version of Android your phone is running? Does this occur with any other devices in your home?

 

Does this issue occur over wifi and mobile data?

 

Thanks!

Seriously?

I've gone through this 5 times now.   Are there different folk working on my issue?

I have an identical doorbell working fine.   This one is faulty as I've described a few times now.  Pls send an RMA and swap for good.
