    Hi, I had a crash into a tree on a new Phantom 2 Vision+. The frame and gimbal were damaged. I have managed to fix the frame and gimbal and had a successful test flight.

    However, the camera quality now is very bad. Pictures appear blue and video has vertical lines running through. It would appear that there is no green in the pictures now.

    Any ideas on what needs to be looked at?

    Verify that cables fitted in phantom's connectors. Also maybe the thin ribbon cable (the black one) is damaged or loosened.

    Somebody else on here had this problem also and it seems like he found that the lens had dislodged some?

    The flat black cable seems to be secure on both ends. The lens does not feel loose.

    A loose filter wouldnt do this. Even a dislodged lens elememt could not create lines in the video. This sounds very much like a poor connection as others have suggested.

    Check you got everything back together properly and that the connectors themselves dont have a pin dislodged.

    The ribbon cable is ridiculously fragile and notorious for causing issues.
