No Cameras Available - MIPI Camera Sensor Evaluation Boards


I am looking to capture video and still images on the Jetson AGX Xavier dev unit using the FRAMOS IMX-485C, FRAMOS IMX-530C, and OmniVision 0S08A20 evaluation modules (Not at the same time). So far I’ve had success in setting up the cameras and properly flashing the AGX Xavier unit, but I am not quite sure what to make of this error when using gstreamer.

Command: $ gst-launch-1.0 nvarguscamerasrc ! nvoverlaysink

Setting pipeline to PAUSED …
Pipeline is live and does not need PREROLL …
Setting pipeline to PLAYING …
New clock: GstSystemClock
Error generated. /dvs/git/dirty/git-master_linux/multimedia/nvgstreamer/gst-nvarguscamera/gstnvarguscamerasrc.cpp, execute:557 No cameras available

It looks like gstreamer is having a hard time picking up signal from the MIPI cameras. I think this may be due to an improper driver issue, but I’m not quite sure. Hope you all have had some experience here and know the best path forward.

Thanks for your help!

No cameras available could be the context of the tegra_camera_platform{} incorrect. Could be the devname incorrect or something else.

Hello @Markeet,

I am from FRAMOS. Have you downloaded the FRAMOS software and drivers from : FRAMOS Sensor Modules Downloads | FRAMOS ?

You need to apply the patch to Jetpack before flashing your device.

If you still have an issue, please reach out to me on


Hi Prashant,

It looks like that was part of the problem. I was trying to add the patch post flash.


You are welcome, glad that the problem is resolved.
