Jetson Nano Camera not working and hanging

I am using the waveshare Jetbot 4gb Kit. Installed the software provided by waveshare.

trying to run the code:
camera = Camera.instance(width=224, height=224) in the data collection notebook and the camera doesn’t seem to load and hangs.

while running: nvgstcapture-1.0
It just hangs at:
CONSUMER: Producer has connected; continuing.

Test your CSI camera is ready to runs:
$ nvgstcapture-1.0

hello user20650,

did you mean your use-case is taking the camera resolution with 224x224?
this isn’t supported though ISP pipeline, (i.e. Argus, nvgstcapture-1.0), since ISP pipeline doesn’t support size smaller than 640x480.

This is where it is getting stuck using $ nvgstcapture-1.0 and it just Hangs

You should make sure first whether your MIPI CSI camera is connected properly,
and list as /dev/video0.

What’s the best way of checking that?

MIPI CSI camera

after that, run the Jetbot examples

please also check developer guide, Approaches for Validating and Testing the V4L2 Driver.

I have followed this and hooked the jetbot up to HDMI and can’t see any output of the video.

hello DavidDraper,

may I know which camera module you’re working with, please share the detail product name for reference,
did the camera device registered completely? you may also gather the kernel init messages, i.e. $ dmesg > klog.txt


IF you have RPi board or another Jetson Nano developer kit,
connect your CSI camera to know it’s OK.
The camera may have some issue.

I got another camera it’s working fine!

Strange it was working and then stopped.

hello DavidDraper,

is this a hardware issue or you’re having another problem to access the streaming?

Turned out to be a hardware issue

thanks for confirmation, we may close this discussion thread.
