BMPCC4K no image on external monitor

PostThu Nov 07, 2019 11:02 pm

I have all the stats from camera to Fotga monitor but not showing an image. I'm wondering if this is an update issue since monitor worked before updating.

Check your cable. If you are getting the overlays, then something is blocking the video signal from displaying, a cable issue is normally the issue.

Look through all the camera settings and external monitor settings to see they agree.

What upgrade? If you mean the BMPCC4K firmware 6.6 upgrade, good to specify that. Try to downgrade to 6.2.1 or whichever firmware you were on and if the external monitor works, see if any camera settings are different. If the external monitor no longer works, then the firmware upgrade may not be the culprit.

The cables work and the monitor works on other cameras

Seems like all the settings match. Also tried different record options, frame rates and mghz.


I’ll revert back to old firmware and see what happens

Thanks
