Problems with USB Ports on RoboRIO

Hi everyone!

Our team is having problems getting the camera to work with our code. Earlier this week we successfully captured images from a USB camera connected to the RoboRIO, but since then we’ve had issues. We are also unable to see cameras in the RoboRIO status page. We’ve already tried swapping ports, plugging in other known good USB cameras/other devices, and tried re-imaging the Rio to no avail. Has anyone else seen this issue and/or know how to fix? Does anyone have any other ideas on what we can try? I’ve attached a screenshot for reference.


We had this issue last season. The NI CSAs at Champs diagnosed it as a shorted 5v rail because of some aluminum shavings in the RoboRio’s USB ports.
