I have a Phantom 3 Pro. I have a red light on above the camera/gimbal. What is this and how do I turn it to GREEN again.

Agreed.  That light is usually to notify you if the SD card is not inserted.  But I imagine it could also signify a card that isn't writing (or reading) properly.

Yeah, you never said what phantom you have, but that might be a bit big. Do you have the original 16gb one that came with it? I wasn't aware of DJI putting that large of a card in any of their phantoms, but I could be wrong if you by chance have a new phantom 4.

Flashing red or solid red? Here is a manual below for your reference. Did you get any error message on the APP? 1.png

Yes, a 64gb micro sd card is perfect... Never have I had any errors with mine.

I only use the 16gb card that was bundled with the drone, for firmware updates.

"164" isn't a standard size/multiple.  If it is a solid red light, you have a system error.  Did you have a failed firmware update?

Does anyone know what could be the problem if there is NO camera status LED - Phantom 3 Standard? It briefly flashes red on power-up, but then goes off and stays off after connecting everything. The gimbal works fine. No video feed or SD card controls on DJ Go app. I can fly it normally.  Latest firmware, everything else seems to work just fine.

I removed the cover of the gimbal board and noticed there is a slowly flashing green light on the opposite end of the gimbal board than where the camera status LED hole is. Again, the LED right next to the hole stays off.
