    I'm using this Phantom 2 for around 9 months. H3-3D Gopro Hero 3 and 3+ black, iOSD mini
    I had protected USB ribbon with tape because its weakness.
    Several flights without problems.
    Today I didn't get image in my Flysight display but OSD info.
    I've searched about this problem and only found posts about broken ribbon.
    Just in case I removed it and installed an old H3-2D connector I have and transmit data from the Gopro back slot.
    Nothing changed.
    I also tried all sort of things like changing transmitter, Gopro; also tried usb cable from camera to transmitter and got image. Even more I installed two transmitters so I got, one display with the clean image and the other display with iOSD info !!
    There are other ribbons in the gimbal I never even touched, no crashes, nothing unusual.
    I am able to tilt the camera from RC wheel.
    What can I do?
    Thank you

    marciano, Did you ever find a resolution to your problem of no video and only OSD info? I had the same problem but it was resolved by replacing the ribbon cable. One thing I noticed is that the connectors of the ribbon cable do have locks that must be unlocked to remove the bad cable and then relocked after the new ribbon cable ends are inserted. .
