Why is it that sometimes my dashcam fails to record? THis happened today when I started the car it recorded 5 seconds but unfortunately when someone hit me it failed to record which was the whole reason for getting the thing in the first place!. It has done this numerous times now and you never know when it i recordig or not. I have had episodes where it appears to be recording but there is no video to download or its telling me its corrupted! why is this? it is the most annoying thing i have ever had. There have been numerous ties when I could have used the vieo footage for evidence but I failed to record!
If nothing happens after updating, then you may need to take the dash cam to the repair store to see if they can help you fix this. Or, you can have it switched with a new device, if it is still in warranty.
