Power cycling refers to fully powering an electronic device off, usually disconnecting it from any source of power. This is a useful troubleshooting tool because it helps reset the device and its connections. This can help solve many troubleshooting issues.
To power cycle your camera:
- Unplug the camera from its power source. This can be done either from the power outlet, or from the camera itself.
- Allow 5-10 seconds to pass for the camera to completely discharge.
- Plug the camera back into the power source and allow it reinitialize.
