Using the Raspberry Pi camera on a CM1
« on: February 07, 2019, 05:42:51 PM »
Hi people,

I'm trying to use the RPI camera V2.1 on the CM1 module using the CM IO board. I've connected up the camera to the CAM 1 port as per this piece of documentation :

https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/computemodule/cmio-camera.md

I've also pull in the dt-blob.bin (will their default one work correctly?) file from their link and installed rpi-vc.tcz. I've also modified the config.txt file with:

start_x=1
disable_camera_LED=1
gpu_mem=128

When I run "sudo vcgencmd get_camera" I get "supported=1 detected=0".

I also fail on taking a picture, with an error stating it's not detecting the camera.

What do I need to change to get it to detect and use the camera?

Thanks, turns out the problem was two-fold. I2C was enabled and the cable was defective.
