I went to use my Solo after it sat idle for a few months and now I can't get a video feed. I'm using the same tablet & camera I used the last time it worked. I tried resetting both the Solo and the controller & re-paired them & still no video. Any ideas what else I can try? Thanks...

Sorry but I have to ask: Are you sure that you plugged the GoPro firmly into the gimbal (seat it firmly then press it again)? Are you sure that the video cable is plugged into the side of the GoPro firmly (seat it firmly then press it again)?

If so, then help us help you: Does the video feed cut out when you press record, or is there never any video feed at all? What model tablet do you use? What OS version is it? Which app are you using on your tablet to control your Solo? Which GoPro model? Which firmware version is your GoPro? The more specific your details, the more useful our suggestions can be.

Yes, GoPro is firmly seated in the gimbal & cable is firmly seated in the GoPro. Tablet is a ZTE K88 & GoPro is a Hero4 Black. All these items worked great the last time I flew the Solo, which was several months ago. And I don't get any video feed right from the start now. I can still fly the Solo without video, but what fun is that? Hoping somebody can help me figure this out...

Cold solder joint at either the HDMI port on the gimbal or the HDMI port on the Solo?
