    I have a Phantom 2 vision+ and I've had a lot of fun with it.
    But since a week I have no live picture (FPV) on my tablet. (no crash)
    I've tried a couple of differend tablets and phones but still a black screen.

    Everything else works perfectly and when i press record or take a picture and play it on my computer everything looks good.

    I've re-installed the app a few times, have all the latest updates, checked all connectors, did the binding thing
    but still a black screen, can someone please give me some good advise.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    This is obvious but I have to ask... Did you choose the Phantom wifi signal from the list on your device?

    I've never had the lid off. (I'm not very technical, lol)
    But how can I be able to record and play everything on the computer, when the wifi box is burned?

    Here's another approach fellas. When I test cameras, sometimes, to my great disappointment, I get the same "black screen" and realize the main circuit board in the camera is bad, or the camera module itself. SO, to test your wifi unit, locate another working camera and hook it up and see if it is the camera or the bird. Keep in mind, for you fellas new to the P2V+, there is NO need to rebind the camera to the bird.
    Good luck!

    i tried all that mate with my dads as i have a p2v3 and it was when i lifeted the lid on mine you can see the difference in module to my dads apparently DJI new about this issue and some were recalled, as dad had his second hand we just dont know but new box fixed his issue and hes been on many flights with me now too

    worth a shot though
