Not sure if this is the best place for my question, but here goes.

I've got a Transcend Drivepro 200 which has been fine for the last few months, but now won't turn on. I just get a quick blue flash from the LED and that's it. I've tried to return it but the store wants the entire package, box, cables, everything back. My two year old son has hidden most of the cables, and the box has long since been recycled. All I have is the camera and the 12v car power cable thing.

I've searched Google for the problem, to no avail, and there's nothing relevant on the Transcend website. Any ideas?

I have had similar issues with a different cam. Removed the battery, removed the SD card, replaced and this sorted it out. Effectively a hard reboot.

Ive got the same problem.
Wont power up, just a quick flash of purple/blue from the power led.
tried different power source, same issue.
the DrivePro200 does NOT have a built in battery, its powered via capacitors.

Can't answer your dashcam problem but I have to say that is one humongous lurk! One of the biggest of all time??

I had the same problem today. I had changed the sd card for a 64gb class 10 card, which worked once but then the camera failed to start. I put the old class 6 sd card in and the camera works again.

I had the same issue afew months ago.
Contacted Transcend via the website and they did get back to me the next day. My unit had the same issues and it was faulty. The RMA was processed and i got a new one in two weeks.
