Some months ago I purchased a blackfin camera for my senior design project, it was working fine until we accidentally damaged it. We then, bought a new one but this new one does not seem to be working right. We connected it to a rs232 and tried to get it to respond to the V command in hyperterminal but all it printed out were WWWWWWWWs . We sent it back to surveyor and they told us that the camera was working fine. Now, when I got it back, it still does the same thing.
I figure it would be worth a shot to reinstall the firmware and when I did it, the V command started printing out the firmware version like is supposed to. The thing is that when I used the console the camera only prints out a greenish image that constantly moves vertically.
Also, if I disconnect the power from the camera and plug it back on, it goes back into non responsive mode only printing the WWWWWW.
Below is the printout that I get from the camera once I installed the firmware. Everything looks fine as far as I know. Then I unplugged it and plugged it again and you can see the WWWWWW s
