During flight with an IR camera, the customer receives a blank screen for a few minutes and then video display returns to normal. What is the cause for this?

Certain types of Infrared cameras typically reset themselves every 10-15 minutes for calibration purposes.

During that time, you may experience a black image on the monitor from Flight Display Systems. This is normal. The monitor is going to a default video mode because while the camera resets itself, there is no video output.

Simply wait a few seconds for your camera to begin transmitting a video signal. The video display will automatically resume on your Flight Display Systems monitor.
