Hello everybody, I am new to the forum.  I am having an issue where after my phantom starts up and a beeping/warning sound seems to come from the gimbal/camera.  In addition a small red light along the edge of the camera/ gimbal housing flashes.  The phantom operates as normal besides this.  Initially the camera was moving erratically so I removed the backing to check the cable connection per another thread I saw.  After replacing the backing this new issue has started.  Thanks in advance for any ide or feedback.

The manual has information on what the different beeps and flashing lights mean.  Or you can look at this thread.

I am not sure then.  It is working for me and is set to public.  Is it embedded for you or are you going to the URL?  What about grabbing it from my google drive?

Sorry for the hassle, I appreciate you taking a look.

Definitely looks like a gobbled gimbal!
Have you downloaded the manual and checked the error pg. for status indicators for the camera?
Is it new yto you?
Have you ever crashed it?
Are any screws missing in the gimbal arm?
If it is doing something different now than before you took it apart and  put it back together chances are there are definitely reassemble errors and more going on.
Have you checked the cables are firmly in the base of the gimbal? They can be finicky....

I checked the manual and dis not see any specific error codes related to the camera/gimbal.  The Phantom was being set down on a ledge and fell about 4 feet.  After the fall the camera/gimbal was initially moving and clicking randomly, like it was trying to center itself or something like that.  I removed the backing from the camera to check the cable connection there and after putting the backing back on it began behaving as currently described.  I did check all the other cables and all look to be firmly attached.

may also be an internal bad connection as a result of the fall,
if all external cables appear to be fully seated etc. you may want to try to open it up to have a look if comfortable or send in to dji for service,
and as i stated previously, if it is doing something different after you took it apart than before you took it apart, likely you did not put it together properly as symptoms as before should be the same...there are tiny ribbon cables in there when you remove the backing, make sure they are in properly....
