QHY5 - [ERROR] GetQHYCCDSingleFrame error (-1)

I am still getting this error on the latest 1.4.4 Rpi3 and Rpi4 versions. I ran software updater today, Sept. 29, on both machines and the rules file in lib\udev\rules.d was updated with the 9/28/2019 85-QHYCCD.rules. I have rebooted both machines a number of times.

My camera is the Orion SSAG. It has worked well in the past connected as a QHY. On Stellarmate, the camera is listed as QHY-M-. In the rules file, under SSAG, it says stuff like idproduct "0011" and QHY5Loader.hex.

It connects with no problems, but will not take a picture. In the camera module it says capture aborted and in another place it says GetQHYCCDSingleFrame error (-1)

Do I need to run a firmware update or downgrade on the camera somehow?

What else should I be doing to make this work?

There is an updated libqhy in INDI Nightly repo that should fix the QHY/SSAG issue. Can you please update and test?

I just updated both my StellarMateOS_1.4.4 Pi3 and Pi4 systems. Can confirm that the QHY5LII-C, QHY5PII-C, QHY PoleMaster, and QHY168C are all working perfectly. Thanks

Hi all,

I have just rebuilt my OdroidXU4 and this new version of the QHY driver works wonderfully well.

Thank you for sorting this issue.

Hi,

I have a similar problem with my QHYIMG-0H camera, it connects successfully but fails when I try to capture a frame:
"[ERROR] GetQHYCCDSingleFrame error (-1) "

These are my first tests with Indi, so I am a bit "lost" and would need some help...

I am using the last stable release of Indi, installed yesterday following the instructions here:
indilib.org/download/raspberry-pi.html

I tried with a powered usb hub, but without differences.
I tried also with Indi installed in Ubuntu, on an other PC, same problem...

I would exclude a problem with the camera, it works well with PHD2 on Windows 7.

I add some logs, I hope they could be useful.
Thanks in advance !

Hello,

Looks like I am in the same boat as you. Both my PoleMaster and QHY5LII-C are throwing the [ERROR] GetQHYCCDSingleFrame error (-1) whenever EKOS requests a image to be taken. I can see the image being downloaded in QHY logs but the driver cancels the load.

Hello,

Thank you for the good report. Here were my steps yesterday. I used Synaptic to see what QHY drivers and applications were installed. Then I removed any and all. After completion, I reinstalled indi-QHY. I will validate today what the state of both devices are in. Would you share any additional steps you took?

Hello,

On a whim, I decided to check SYSLOG for any errors while testing my QHY devices with Polar Alignment and EKOS. I found the smoking gun. My error is in indi_qhy_ccd. The OS says using a USB before claiming it is the reason for the halt. I thought it strange for the QHY logs to yield an error when nothing previous to error indicated the need for an alert. Yes. The OS can stop KSTARS from operating.

Dec 30 09:00:43 astroberry kernel: [ 7592.169498] usb 1-1.2.4.1: usbfs: procesis 4686 (indi_qhy_ccd) did not claim interface 0 before use

Here is a link to the possible fix.
