Several of our 10338 sensors are producing images of this nature (single purple-ish color.)

Some of the sensors produce this type of image 100% of the time, others 50% of the time (after reboots), and still others work fine.

I have tested with 7.1.5 from sourceforge and (as of today 2007-12-03) the latest from CVS with the same results.

Is this a bad sensor? Has anyone seen this behaviour?

(note: the lens is a fisheye.)

What cable length are you using? It looks like the signal phase is wrong. You may try &byr=0..3 in ccam.cgi parameters, but that is just to verify the problem, to fix it you'll need to adjust that phase (see Adjusting_sensor_clock_phase)--Andrey.filippov 16:49, 3 December 2007 (CST)

We are using a 4inch cable. I have tried adjusting the phase.. sometimes we have success, but most of the time not. I think it is similar to the problem where the 5Mpix sensor gets confused when setting the clock frequency as described in Adjusting_sensor_clock_phase. Has there been any more discovery as to why this happens? --Ekratzer 11:43, 11 December 2007 (CST)
