A strange white 'floating line' appears randomly in night mode. Triggers video  up to 100 x a night. Checked the camera and nothing is on the unit (web, etc). Seems to be internal. Maybe a filament lose and floating inside the unit? 

(tried to upload the video but it is in MP4 so won't upload)

I know you looked, but more than likely its a spider web string floatin around....

Have to wipe off several of my cameras about 2x per yr due to same.

I just use a swiffer and it gets all.

Thanks, that was my thought so I had wiped the whole outside down clean. But there it was again; the thick random white line. It moves accross the screen triggering the recording, then can stop or float at another angle. Very strange.

 

I'm checking to see if I have an MP4 converter so I can upload the video. It's an annoyance but not worth purchasing another camera. lol
