    Just installed my iOSD mini using the DJI Plug and Play adapter. Pretty sure the wires are plugged in correctly, but not getting any telemetry. The video from my Kumbacam Advanced FPV is working but nothing from the iOSD mini. The iOSD mini is flashing green so not sure what that means.

    Did you check your video in and out wiring?

    Yes. Also updated with latest firmware. Will post a picture of my connections shortly.

    Firmware has nothing to do with it. Did you connect the mini iOSD to its software to check for any updates? Check the Can-Bus connector and also on the main board to make sure both are plugged in. It could be you have a defective iOSD as it is letting the video through but not the telemetry.

    That happened to me while fitting the unit and it turned out to be a defective canban cable, one of the pins had pushed out of the connector. I would suspect that rather than the video if you are getting a clear picture from the camera.

    Thank you. Just checked for that and it appears to be ok. I'm going to try returning the iOSD Mini back to Amazon where I got it from and get a new one. Hopefully they don't give me a hard time about it.

    Have you read the iOSD user manual?
    I'm just guessing that you haven't since one of your first questions is answered on the first page.
    There is a small troubleshooting guide there.
    I would read this over and reinstall the drivers and software in the proper order again before sending it back.

    Check everything again. Sounds like a cable.
