I'm on my second Cam Plus module, and I have no idea how to make it work, or what I should expect.
I've attached it to my phone, and charged it for 5+ hours. During the first two hours I didn't see any LEDs on the Cam Plus. After two hours it started flashing red to indicate charging (I think?).
I've never had it change from red flashing LED.
The Cam Plus firmware update just shows the same "Connect a Cam Plus to check for Updates" message with the module attached. The LG Friends app sees the device and lists it as connected. I've not been able to get the module to do anything, or have any buttons work in the LG Camera app. Moving the bottom switch seems to not do anything.
Am I crazy here, or is this second unit defective? Am I just doing it wrong?
Thanks guys, any help is appreciated.
After doing a dumb thing and purchasing the Cam Plus for my G5, I found that I purchased the wrong MPN. I have purchased the correct one now, but would like to know what country and carrier so I can sell the wrong one. Manufacturer's part # is TMON64673. LG has only told me to go to every countries LG site and check the model #. Off hand any advice you can give would be appreciated.
I finally got my cam plus to charge. Apparently the battery locks when it is fully discharged, you have to attach it to the phone and charge for about 5 minutes, but apps have to be up to date for this to work, got no light or flashing red light at first. Flashing red light started once I installed lg friends manager app. The cam plus app will not see the module either. I think I did press the camera on button and the video button on the cam plus for 3 seconds before it started to flash on one of the phones, I had 2 that did not work.
If you get the flashing red light it is not charging, what you need to do is update your lg5 by going to settings>general>about phone>update centre>app updates then do the updates. Once I did this the module started to get a solid red light and started the charge. You can then remove from phone and charge cam plus on it's own then and you should get a solid green light when charged.
Hope this helps.
I updated the apps through Google Play as my LG 5 does not have an "Update centre" or "app updates" under the "about phone" section but it still flashes red when charging and in the Cam Plus Manager it states "USB device must be allowed before updating" and when I click CHECK it states to "attach the cam plus" when it's already attached.
In my case connecting to PC and disconnecting triggered something. Camplus wasn't even charged to max.
Stop press! I finally got it working. I have no idea how i did it. To any one else who's still banging their heads off a wall, i say, just keep at it. Leave it on charge overnight, over a weekend, etc., until you finally see LED flashing or at least staying on. Yes!
Only thing is... It's a bit ****, no?
When I got my g5 from Telus they gave me the camplus and it never worked, returned it and tried 3 different units brand new from Telus And none worked, the LG rep was at the store that day and none worked for he either on her g5. I ended up getting credit back for that bonus item
