I decided today to substitute my QHY183M to my Nikon 5300 with which I had lot of troubles yesterday (I will explain it in another post).
I have used the QHY183M successfully on May as I was on linux Mint 18.3. I switched to linux Mint 20 (Ulyana) on my notepad on July.
But todaythe cam is no more detected.
I don't know if it comes from the Cypress WestBridge driver of linux or from QHY sdk or anything else. If somebody have any idea.
I am a bit desperate with none of my imagers working good.
Here are the results of tries to detect the camera:

I work for QHYCCD company and also develop Java software for them and TSX pluging. Yesterday, I have noticed the same problem you have explained here after uploaded the latest version from the QHYCCD SVN repository, so all my applications stopped working. So, the current version of the driver returns zero detected cameras even if some are visible on the bus using lsusb command.
I have already reported this bug to quy who is developing their driver. He told me, he had several times changed scan usb function so, he is looking on this problem to fix it asap. Sorry for that problem, maybe you could download older driver.
Thank you Jan, but how and where can I download older drivers ?
I have tested firecapture with the qhy183M but the problem looks to be the same. But in this case I am not sure that Firecapture allows this camera usage.
BTW, Mr. Ma Yong from QHYCCD fixed it right now, but did not release yet. I am able to compile this driver from our SVN and detect all attached camera again. I just talk to Jasem and he is able to run cameras again without any problems, so maybe he will release it, I do not know.
This is question for Jasem, i would say know, but not sure for 100%...
I did a small changes inside my application and it seems to work well with this new driver.
I just tested the QHY183M with Indigoserver and it works fine with it. So this is not a problem of camera (I am reassured).
I don't know what version of the SDK is used in Indigo. But the problem looks to be either on the SDK used to build indi servers or in the indi server itself.
More than a month and no reply to my issue. I wonder if anybody is working to solve the problem or if the Linux platform is fully abandoned by the QHY guys.
NB: Fortunately and finally got it working with 20.07.26 sdk and recompiling the INDI drver.
So it looks like the indi-qhy package doesn't works for this camera.
I tried to install Dragon on my laptop.
Hum, first it didn't worked for some missing libraries and second it crashed the indi server.
I had to get back compiling a indi server version with the previous SDK. The only positive thing I got is that now with lsusb command I see namely the QHY183M instead of an unknown usb device in the usb device list
