    My P3P got crazy today. Was working great. Then on a subsequent battery - there is no feed from the camera - only shows dji logo then black screen and the camera goes limp. What would that be?

    One possible cause is the SD card.
    Try using a different one .. or format the one you have again, a few times if necessary.

    Tried another SD - same thing. It goes again and again through a cycle after the camera initially powers up, rotates (its normal power cycle); then stands looking forward and then.... Gives up and goes limp. Afterwards its fan stops and on equal intervals runs for two seconds, "dji" logo appears within Dji Go; then fan stops and black screen - and that way forever.

    Check your grey cables. Unplug and plug back in.

    Also reset the camera settings within the DJI Go app and see if that helps.
