I used the ZWO ASI 1600MC-Cool camera as usual for a few months, but suddenly (about a month ago) it lost the connection.
Now every time I try to connect to it, Kstars show me a pop-up:
No ASI cameras detected. Power on?
But the camera is connected and detected through
Bus 001 Device 008: ID 04b4:6572 Cypress Semiconductor Corp.
I tried to reconnect, connect asi290 camera instead (which is Ok for sure), change the cable, reinstall everything, compile from source, restart PC, but that didn't help.
I compiled the driver from source, using instructions from github.com/indilib/indi/blob/master/3rdparty/indi-asi/README.md
that also didn't help to resolve the problem. I tried to compile a different version of indi_asi_ccd driver (1.7.5, 1.7.4, 1.7.2, 1.7.1, 1.7.0, 1.5.0), that also gave nothing.
The camera is connected to this PC (only command line, so I can't check it using other app):
Looks like it was a connection issue because of bad contact on USB port and mistake in our team. When we checked if it's connected by
, it was wrong device. The correct camera vendor is 03c3:1601, not 04b4:6572. So the camera was not connected.
For anybody, who will come here for the same reason, double check connection, then use lsusb command to confirm that the camera is visible by Linux.
Also here is some additional info about possible trouble: github.com/indilib/indi/issues/862
