This section contains fault-finding information, useful if the documentation and videos above haven't been able to help you.
It is in two parts, first a short list of links to pages of common interest, e.g. Setting SBUS or Power Supplies,
followed by specific details to help you with this product.
To fault find it is recommended that the problem is isolated to one area first.
To do that use a standard servo, powered at 5volts, to check a PWM channel is working properly
on the RC system. Without a known good servo signal available we cannot proceed.
Connect the camera, try moving the Channel 1 input, the camera should REC or zoom (model dependant). If not check the LANC plug is fully pushed home, and that the camera
is on our compatibility list.
With PWM, continue by adding channels. If there are problems check each PWM channel with a
standard servo before connecting to the camera controller.
Consult your RC system manual to understand what sticks and switches are available to use.
With the LANC system, only one signal can be sent to the camera at a time, so return all servo inputs
to idle when not in use. This stops repeated signals blocking the interface.
Some commands have longer reaction times (e.g. MOVIE) to prevent accidental activation.
You may need to hold the control in place for a couple of seconds.
Remember to return controls to idle after activation.
