    Hi Guys,

    I just purchased my Phantom 3 professional about a month ago. I barely got to use it. It worked flawlessly at first then out of nowhere the images started getting grainy. I did take it to the beach but everything was fine then. the beach video was also amazing. Please help. I bought this from amazon and it passed the return / exchange policy. I have a one year warranty from DJI but id like to troubleshoot if possible from my end first. any advice?

    -The firmware has been successfully updated
    -the lens is clean


    Thanks,
    Manh

    I hate to ask the obvious, but are your camera and video settings set to Auto (and not Manual)? Is your Exposure set to "0"?
    Probably best if you could upload a screenshot of a grainy photo with the camera settings included.
    I had a recent issue after a Firmware update where unbeknownst to me, the camera settings were switched
    from Auto to Manual and maximum Exposure (resulting in a full white screen) was set.
