Alexa Mini Issue

I've had this happen several times. The image from the mini will suddenly shift to the image I've attached.

I can't determine if the issue is power or heat related. Just not sure what to make of this.

In the past I've simply rebooted the camera and the image was proper. Had a job on Sunday, yes working on Mother's Day, where rebooting only temporarily fixed the issue. Eventually the camera behaved but for an hour during the day it was a real problem.

Has anyone experienced this issue before?

I've had this issue on a Mini once, and rebooting fixed it. Never came back, so I thought it was just a momentary bug. Scary to hear it can reoccur and take down the camera. If anyone hears of a fix, I'd love to know it.

I've had so many issues with that camera but i still love it. rotating ND filters that won't stop, signal changing from 1.5G to 3G or 24p to 24psf, lockios, all of it...dare i say it kinda smells like the RED style of releasing a beta camera...

Hi Everyone. After dealing with more power issues with the Mini via the Tilta powered cage im now running 24 volts directly to the camera from the sled. It solves so many issues. Low voltage in 12 volt can still power the camera but the WCU-4 will fail. Meaning it wont respond then fails to calibrate properly. I havent been able to re employ the WCU-4 since changing to 24 volts but something tells me life will be better.

If i discover anything else i will report back.

24 volts is the way to go. WCU-4 is working perfectly. The higher voltage works best on my sled. YMMV. Im flying a terdek 2000, cinetape, mini with 2 small motors all in the Omega(teradek rides on the bottom). Waiting on the PAG 150s to arrive. Should give me evem more run time.
