Automatic camera control - corrupted output?

Post by bezabaza »

Hi, I've recently purchased a Pro MK2 and am struggling to get a wifi module working with the unit.

I've disabled wifi in the settings and copied in the Lua script. Enabling debugging and looking at the output, *most* of the serial output is corrupted which means the script cannot determine the status:

Code: Select all

[GoProWiFi] initializing
[GoProWiFi] send: AT+RST
[GoProWiFi] send: AT+CWMODE_CUR=1
[GoProWiFi] send: AT+CWJAP_CUR="gopro124","gopro1234"
34"
PUI5EU
PUi]5= }UIu1
PUi]) A}UIu"gopro124","gopro1234"
PuT U+CWMOQQ5UIu1
PUi]) A}[GoProWiFi] could not connect to GoPro
It's the same output every time and there's a pattern:

PUI5EU = AT+RST
PUi]5= }UIu1 = AT+CWMODE_CUR=1
PUi]) A}UIu = AT+CWJAP_CUR=

And it's strange that the SSID and password is returned without issues.

This is using an ESP8266 (ESP-01S) with a 3.3V to 5V convertor which works fine via a serial reader @ 115200 baud.

Anything that I'm missing here?

Thanks,
Sean

I think I might have figured it out! I'm connecting RS232 directly to the module as per this post
