I've had this happen several times. The image from the mini will suddenly shift to the image I've attached.

I can't determine if the issue is power or heat related. Just not sure what to make of this.

In the past I've simply rebooted the camera and the image was proper. Had a job on Sunday, yes working on Mother's Day, where rebooting only temporarily fixed the issue. Eventually the camera behaved but for an hour during the day it was a real problem.

Has anyone experienced this issue before?

you need to access the menu. and SDI change the video format and re change to the correct format!

I don't have pictures now but I will do them!

That's not the problem, he has info around the edges. Had this problem once, figured it was having an identity crisis and momentarily thought it was a red.

I've had this issue on a Mini once, and rebooting fixed it. Never came back, so I thought it was just a momentary bug. Scary to hear it can reoccur and take down the camera. If anyone hears of a fix, I'd love to know it.

I've had so many issues with that camera but i still love it. rotating ND filters that won't stop, signal changing from 1.5G to 3G or 24p to 24psf, lockios, all of it...dare i say it kinda smells like the RED style of releasing a beta camera...

I had this issues a few times.

I happened when battery was low.

Reboot didn't help.

Changing battery helped.

Ken, my situation was the same. Tried rebooting but found changing batteries helped. Strange since my voltage was reading well over 12 volts.
