Looks like the lens is fogged. Could there be moisture in the camera assembly?

Thx for the answer.

 

No, ther is no moisture inside the camera assembly, there is everything clear.

 

And the Printer is 2 month old

Strange; the "rainbow ring" about the specular highlight specifically points to light being refracted by water.

(OMG, your printer has Corona!)

 

Have you ever used any spray for buildplate adhesion?

🤣🤣🤣🤣

 

No, I never used a spray or anything like that.

 

And the Printer has the air Manager...

Hi SP3,

 

Is not this a direct reflex of the inside light diodes from the stainless steel glass clip?

I'll do not think that this camera can handle such a direct light radiation..

You can try to put some withe board "black" to mask out the reflection or, just adjust the clip a bit?

 

Thanks

Torgeir.

hello Torgeir,

 

I don't think it's because of the mirroring on the cling, is a general problem, which gets worse from day to day, so it's getting murmured.

 

does one of you know how to set the camera, i.e. the light values, the focus, etc. ?

 

you see a screenshot from now, the same job!

If its getting worse every day then i would think it's not a setting but something with the camera or in the camera. have you tired to clean inside it and clean the len to see if it gets better. If you are somewhere thats very humid you could be getting damp inside the camera and not just the lens face.

 

Also if the printer is somewhere cold you can get damp inside as inside the printer warms up when running.

Hi SP3,

 

Hmm., strange thing, but cannot really think that this hi intensity led (still in view) is good for this camera. As this normally reduce the aperture and contrast that will be lo -with a kind of foggy picture as we see here.

Turn off or, cover up this light and use another warm light above the printer (behind camera).

Lets see then what's happen?

 

Thanks

Assuming this is a "modern" lo light CCD sensor, those are very sensitive for high light level and may fail if exposed for to long time in hi level light radiation.

Just so it is said, but I do not have a S5, -so if this light radiation into the camera should be normal(?), I do not know.

But I do not think so.

 

Anyway

Good luck

 

Thanks

Torgeir
