Hey everyone,

I just bought an Osmo Mobile on 25 November 2017,  I tried using it again but I'm encountering this blinking yellow light on the right-side System Indicator when it's powered up.

However, there is a slight diagonal tilt, and I'm not able to control it anymore. I've never dropped it, or squashed it, as it's always well protected in my backpack.

Can anyone here kindly help me with this please?

I've tried many ways to troubleshoot it but I'm not sure how to send it back also, I live in Japan.

Thank you,
Gustavo

Hello there. We apologize if you're having some issues with your Osmo. It says here on the manual that the blinking yellow means that the gimbal is not functioning normally. You may try to calibrate the gimbal using the app. Just go to the settings (see second photo), gimbal settings then calibration.

I have had this happen to me twice now and so far I have been able to fix it easily with the following steps.

1. Turn off the Osmo Mobile 3
2. Fold the Osmo into it storage state
3. Turn on the Osmo while it is still folded
4. Unfold the Osmo and take it out of standby by pressing the trigger twice or pressing the M button three times.

I have always done this while my phone was mounted it may work without the phone mounted as well. It seems like this happens when the Osmo is put into standby and then turned off instead of just turning it off but I have not verified this with enough incidents as I have only had my Osmo Mobile 3 for two days.

I have this yellow light problem most of the time I open osmo mobile 3. I figured by following workaround returns the green light and steady state.

1. Place mobile on osmo mobile 3 and unfold gimbal.
2. Ensure mobile phone has Bluetooth turned On and DJI mimo app is installed.
2. Turn gimbal ON.
3. When yellow light keeps blinking, fold gimbal to storage state for 2-3 seconds and unfold it back.
4. Check if you notice the yellow light turned to green . You may still not be able to control the gimbal yet.
5. Tun the gimbal off and turn it on again. This should bring the gimbal to green steady and in control.

Hope this helps.
