Stickup battery cam without live view, detection or notifications after low battery and recharge


So, one of the stickup cams on battery isn’t functioning after this weeks low battery notification.
I removed the battery, charged it until the led was green again and re-inserted the battery.
After this, the blue light comes on for ~5 seconds, and then turns off.

The cam is listed, but non of the functions, like live-view, actually work.
(a message appears that the battery is crit. low)

Within the app, the health status reports all OK, except it doesn’t show a battery percentage.
It’s either NaN or battery level unknown.

Things I have tried so far:

  • Swapped the battery with another camera. This device works then perfectly. This rules out the battery.
  • Reinstalled the app, same results as before.
  • Removed the devices, reinstalled the app, add the device, same results as before.
  • Remove the devices and added the device without reinstalling the app in between, , same results as before.
  • Re-charged the battery once again, same results as before.

I am running out of options here. Perhaps someone here was a nice idea on how to activate the camera again.

Have you tried a factory reset on the cam?

I didn’t do that yet :slight_smile:

Just tried: the hard-reset (20 second orange button) doesn’t trigger.
Even with pressing for a longer period.
The light doesn’t flash afterwards.

Pressing the orange button afterward ones triggers the setup-mode.
After finishing the setup with success, I have the same results :frowning:
