Ring Floodlight Cam Faulty

Floodlights keep flashing erratically at high speed. Try and turn them with the button is goof for about 1 minute and then you see the button turn itself back on and then the lights go again.

One bulb now burnt out. Had to go to the computer and they shut off, but if I try and turn them on all I get is high-speed blinking. Two neighbours on my case with complaints. How is this fixed? Hellllp!

LED lights flash quickly when they are about to go out. I'd say they need to be replaced.. Customer service can help if they're still under warranty.

Re: Ring Floodlight Cam Faulty

Hi, my RING Flood Light Cam LED lights also just went out exactly as you described on January 10, 2020.  It was installed and worked for about 14 months.  What an expensive piece of junk now.  Searched the web to see if anyone has yet to repair it since they all say RING will not fix it and just tell you to go buy another one! What!!!!????  I am now going to try and search for LED elements to replace the original defective ones.  I think RING pulled a fast one on us as they say the LED lights should last 10 years.  My A$$!.

For the time being I had to rush and buy another brand Flood Light Cam. It is not another RING that's for sure.  If I can't get my old RING Flood Light Cam fixed, then I wonder if I get a refund for this year's paid subscription to their cloud service! Dang!

Re: Ring Floodlight Cam Faulty

No I do not have their plus plan. I never buy those rip-off warranty extension or insurance plans as most of the time it's a scam and not worth it. Who would think that the Flood Cam lights would fail so early?  Even cheap regular Flood Light motion detector units from home depot last for many many years without failing.  RING has put a defective product out that has many customers complaining about the LED lights burning out before their time.  RING should make good on this bad production batch pre-mature LED failures.  It's obvious to me that there are bad LED elements being used in these RING Flood Light Cams.

I am not going to rush to cancel my cloud subscription just yet as I don't want to lose a ton of videos that they have stored in their cloud servers.  Overall I was pretty much happy with the RING service aside from the glitches and server outages they've had but if I cannot find some parts to put new LED lights on this thing, then I will probably want to cancel the cloud subscription because I won't be able to use it any longer.   It's terrible this Flood Light failed so early.  Just passed the 1 year warranty period (like others have also reported). Dang what disappointment RING. 

BTW Eagle328, do you work for RING?

Re: Ring Floodlight Cam Faulty

I feel you pain, had the same exact issue. Customer service offer me a discount on a replacement but I felt like I shouldn’t of had to pay to replace it under 2 years because the led’s went bad!!!
