Hi, working my way through the ESP32CAM course, purchased the identical equipment to the course, successfully uploaded the code to the esp32CAM. Get instruction:
“Leaving…” “Hard resetting via RTS pin…”
All seems fine!
Disconnect pin0 to GRD link.
Open Serial Monitor. Window scrolls the “Detected camera not supported”. “camera probe failed with error 0x20004”
Have tried it with MacBook Pro and Win10 PC.
Have used 3 different USB leads.
Have updated Arduino IDE plus ESP32 libraries.
Has anybody else met this?
Thanks in anticipation
I did have this problem when I first started. I can’t recall what fixed it but I think it was the combination of USB cable and FTDI adapter.
Also, the troubleshooting guide at https://randomnerdtutorials.com/esp32-cam-troubleshooting-guide/ is really helpful.
Steve is right.
Additionally, sometimes just pressing the RST button twice solves the problem.
It may also be that your camera ribbon is not connected properly to the board or it may be broken. What is the model of the ESP32 camera that you’re using?
The camera board is:
ESP32 A1 Thinker FCC ID: 2AHMR-ESP32S- WiFi + SoC Inside
The camera ribbon: AF2569 0927XB
The programmer is: USB to TTL FT232RL
The serial monitor print-out shows:

I’ve also opened the ribbon clamp, blown out the socket, replaced the ribbon and closed the clamp firmly.
Still no joy!
Thanks for any suggestions
I’ve just repeated the removal of the camera ribbon but this time cleaned the contacts with isopropyl alcohol.
Must have been corrosion or grease on the contact strip!
Thanks to Steve and Sarah again
