Hi my device worked well since almost one year with the YOICS 2.46 firmware. Now I am no longer able to get access to the device through the web interface. So I decided to open it and connect the serial port.
I got the following message during the boot :

So I decided to reload the linux.zip and romfs.bin images as described in one of tyhe posts in this forum
[url] http://support.yoics.com/viewtopic.php?t=95[/url]
But now I have the following error message :
Code:

end_request: I/O error, dev 1f:00 (Blkmem), sector 0
romfs: unable to read superblock

Si I guess I did something wrong but I cannot figure out what !

On my device (IP9100A) there is a sticker with 2.39A

Any kind of advice will be appr├ęciated

Regards

Patrick

I finally succeeded in loading both linux and romfs images through the serial connection
Nevertheless I am still facing the same problem as the one mentionned at the beginning of my post : Error: Camera/CameraCtl.c, 178. (see log hereafter)

Likely the video switch blew out.

The biggest problem with the 9100 is that it over heats and the two
things that are likely to burn out after a while are the ethernet phy
and the video switch.

It looks like your video switch is gone or there are cold solder or joint
fatigue on the headers that connect the boards. Sometimes this happens
when the device heats and cools over a period of time.

You can try taking a soldering iron and heating up the headers where
they are sodered to the boards until they melt if it is a solder joint problem.

Thanks for your reply. I made several trials and found out that in some cases (not often) I have a correct access to the device through it's Web interface and I am able to see the camera image (at least for a certain time !). So I guess that at least the "switch" works correctly. But when I click on some links on the web page (configuration for example) then I get the error message :
Error: Camera/CameraCtl.c, 178
on the serial interface and the web interface is no longer responsive...

I didn't take a soldering iron up to now in order to see if it can come from some bad soldering points or not

Any other idea ?

Thanks

Patrick

Well put the 9100 in the freezer for a while, then see if it works longer when you test it.

If so its likely a heat problem, and still possibly a bad solder joint.

Yes in fact when the 9100 is cold (out of the fridge) it works for a longer period. So it is likely a problem of heat... I didn't expect this due to the fact that the device worked well for almost a year !
So as you suggested I will look for a bad solder which could explain that now the device is "more" sensitive to heat as in the beginning
Thanks again for your suggestions
Patrick

Yea it is the constant heat/cool cycles that break down the marginal solder joints.
