Cameras Will Not Stay Flipped: Another Very Arecont Problem

You didn't think we were done after the stuck IR cut filters, did you?

Last week, an old colleague asked if we could recommend any contact at Arecont who could help them with a camera issue. They had multiple cameras in place, all older models, maybe 3 years old, now out of warranty. The problem is, they keep flipping 180 and back again, on their own. They won't stay flipped. Firmware updates seemed to make it better, but it started to happen again.

The same day, I looked at a camera mounted outside the office, and what do you know?

A 12MP SurroundVideo 180 had flipped itself, too. Again, current firmware. No power outages or configuraton changes occurred.

How often have you seen this issue?
