Why is the camera output black when selecting the Camera Frame Buffer Demo?

This happens when I power up the board and select demo number 3, Camera Frame Buffer Demo.

Solution

This is a known problem that affects some boards and is due to the DCM connected to the Camera not locking, which causes the link between the board and the camera to fail.

You can work around this problem by pressing System ACE Reset after powering the board.
1. Power on the board.
2. Press the Reset ACE - S9 button, that is above the LCD display.
