Pi Zero showing no device when running motion eye

by dtmalott on Sun Aug 22, 2021 3:21 pm

I bought 2 Raspberry Pi Zeros. One from adafruit. I'm trying to make security cameras out of both using the motioneye os : https://github.com/ccrisan/motioneyeos. I have three cameras and the appropriate ribbon cables which adapt to the pi zero port. I set up my first pi zero just fine and its now running motion eye. Then I tried to set up the exact same thing on my pi zero from adafruit, no luck. I tried using the exact same sd card, files, ribbon cable, power adapter, and camera. No luck. It gets to 'starting wpa_supplicant' then says 'no device'. Not sure if that means it cant find the wifi adapter on the card or the camera. Like I said before, This camera, ribbon cable, everything works fine on the other raspberry pi 0 I have.

Let me know if specific pictures / details are needed. Although I suspect it's just a faulty piece somewhere on the pi more than likely. If I can get a replacement I would be shocked if that didnt work.

It looks to me like that is a Pi Zero, not a Zero W? The W has WIFI the other doesn't.

Yep, agree with above. Looks like a non-wifi Pi Zero. That would explain this message:
No luck. It gets to 'starting wpa_supplicant' then says 'no device'.

That's the file that configures wifi.

And if Motion Eye OS doesn't get a connection to your LAN it just keeps rebooting and rechecking.
