    Hi All,

    Turned on the phantom today after successful fpv flights over the weekend to find that the video signal has gone.

    The video is still there (just) but is black and white and full of 'scanning lines' even with the aerials practically touching.

    I have changed the channel but the same problem moves with it. All other channels are solid snow, whereas the channel with the phantom on it, sort of display the image, but scans all the time.

    I have tried in multiple locations and the same problem exists so its not interference.

    Does anyone have any ideas why it might be doing this?

    Thank you

    What Transmitter/receiver are you using?

    Check to see if both the Tx and Rx are on the same band. And look into the settings on the Black Pearl to make sure it hasn't inadvertently been switched from NTSC to PAL. Either of those will give you similar symptoms.
