Troubleshooting process for Vaxis Storm series
I Cannot turn it on (transmitter and receiver)
1. Check whether the power connection is correct and whether the connected cable is damaged (check whether the cable or interface is damaged).
2. Check whether the battery has enough power (check whether the battery is sufficient and the battery is installed correctly).
Ⅱ No picture on the receiving (not even Vaxis LOGO is displayed)
Check whether the receiving end is normally turned on.
Check whether the SDI / HDMI cable is damaged and the connection is correct (whether the big/small monitor mode is consistent).
Check whether the SDI / HDMI interface of the large/small monitor is intact and whether the format is supported.
Ⅲ No signal / no picture at the receiving end
1. Check whether the frequency points of the receiving and transmitting ends is the same.
2. Check if there is signal input at the TX of the transmitter (whether the signal and format display on the display)
NO VIDEO appears in TX 1. Check whether the SDI / HDMI connection is normal and whether the connection cable is damaged. 2. Check whether the camera / camcorder has signal output, and whether the output format image transmission is supported.
The TX display shows normal 1. Check whether there is interference / cross-frequency in the shooting environment (replaceable frequency point or detect with Vaxis scanner) 2. Check whether the receiver exceeds the actual transmission distance or there are many obstructions (The receiver can be detected 3-5 meters away from the transmitter)
Ⅳ Receiver signal is weak/unstable/mosaic / monitor screen flash
1. Check if the image transmission is placed in the correct way.
2.Check if the antenna is installed well.
3. Check whether the antenna is damaged (you can open the engineering menu to detect).
4.Check whether the SDI / HDMI cable is good (need to replace the SDI / HDMI cable to test).
5. Check if there is interference / cross-frequency in the surrounding environment (replaceable frequency points or detected with Vickers scanner to avoid use near interference sources such as airports, high-voltage wires, high-frequency TV broadcasts).
Ⅴ The monitor display is abnormal (the color is not correct)
1.Check if the SDI / HDMI cable is loose or damaged (requires replacement test).
2.Check whether the monitor parameters are normal (recommend to restore the factory settings).
Ⅵ Unable to use Vaxis 058/072
Check if you are using Vaxis new Atorm series video transmitter.
Check if the 058/072 frequency point is the same as the transmitter.
Check whether there are A frame and A signal showing when 058/072 is connected. A. If there is A signal, it means that 058/072 is not opened.
Ⅶ Flashing and reconnecting when recording with ATOMOS Flame / Flame Oculus

Check the Atom version information. You need to update it to the latest version.
Change transmitter frequency.
Perform manual pairing.
Ⅱ Can't find the password to connect APP
