Cam-eye Can't Post

Has anyone had problems with their cam-eye? I can't get it to turn on the camera and make it stay on. I press the red button the camera turns on and then shuts off. The cam-eye will turn it from record to standby. It also lights up all the colors in my eye that it should.. Maybe i am doing it wrong. Let me know if you have had problems like this ..

Which camera do you have? Is it compatible with the Cam-Eye?

Do you have the original Cam-Eye or the newer Cam-Eye II?

I had the same problem with mine once, I have a PC100 on the right side of the camera, there is a switch, Im not home to look at it right now, but the switch slides from left to right, if its all the way to the right, when I started the cam eye, it did exactly what you are describing turn on 5 sec then stop recording. IF you have the same camera or something similar, slide the switch to the left and try it again. If you press the record button on the camera will it keep recording or do the same thing. let me know

You do know that you have to have the camera in the ON position for that to work right? Then you can turn most off with the Cam Eye II, and use it to re-activate the camera.

Probably a feature not compadible with the newer "slide" switch cameras.....

I thought of this as well, but my new camera doesn't have this feature like my old one did....so didn't know what to call that little slide switch....Tongue

Also, THIS PAGE answers some questions.

You mean I have to turn on the camera by the switch and then shut it off by the cam-eye for this to work right. Then I will be able to shut it off and on by the button

I wonder if the PC109 needs to have the Cam-Eye II. Anyone out there have a PC109 who can answer this?

Yes, you definately need the Cam-Eye II with software version 2.2 for any of the new sliding function switch models.
