My camera keeps disconnecting/reconnecting by itself. How do I fix this?

  • Be sure your USB cable is properly connected and provide enough slack for the USB cable to allow the camera to move around. This is to prevent the USB cable from pulling.
  • It is recommended to adjust the bottom arm at a 90 degree angle so that it is perpendicular to the base. Adjust the goose neck instead of the arm when you need to change views. This is to prevent the bottom of the arm from hitting the USB plug.
  • The USB port on your MAC/PC may have malfunctioned. Connect another USB device to that port to rule out this possibility.
  • The camera can disconnect/reconnect if you are using the on-board USB hubs without connecting a power adapter to the camera. This may cause the camera to have insufficient power to run consistently. Please be advised that you ONLY need a power adapter if you are using the non-board USB hubs on the U15. If you are not, please DO NOT attach a power adapter to the U15 for the risk of over surging the camera.
  • Test your U15 with another computer and see if the problem still exists.

"What you can do with TabCam and the app leads right into the way testing is going to be for new Common Core Standards. I love the ability to annotate and edit, as it's so authentic for the kids to be able to put their own work up and see what corrections are needed, where they need to add, and to interact with it as a whole." — Kathy Schlief, Teacher, Campbell, CA

"It has been a wonderful experience working with AVer solutions. I presented our sales rep, Mike Hiller, with our situation and he was quick to respond with a solution. I found AVer's tech support to be very insightful and was always just a phone call away..." — J. Todd Chicchirichi, Technology Resource Faciliator, Head Technologist, Jefferson County Schools

"AVer provided us with a great turn-key solution to our VC needs. We wanted 'quality' and 'ease of use'. We received both with our AVer HVC 310 VC system. Customer support was above expectations. They answered questions directly, and provided all the follow up we needed. Great company!" — Chris Oar Owner, Outback Media
