One Camera isn't Responding

If one of your Blink cameras isn't responding, you may see error messages like "Camera Busy" or "Thumbnail Failed". These messages can happen if your Sync Module isn't able to communicate with the camera. Running a scan of your network using RouteThis helps our agents evaluate your wireless network.

The following steps may also help in resolving this issue.

  1. Move your camera closer to your Sync Module. Make sure that you have 3 bars of signal strength for "Camera to Wi-Fi" and "Camera to Sync Module".
  2. Power cycle both your modem and your router by unplugging them for 30 seconds and plugging them back in. Wait two minutes for Internet service to be restored, then try using your camera again.
  3. Power cycle your camera. To do this, remove the batteries for 10 seconds and reinsert them. Check to see if your camera responds to commands.
  4. If the steps above don't resolve the issue, try a different power source. You can use a micro USB cable and USB power adapter to power the camera. Please try that with the batteries removed.
