I just encountered the same Problem here. Changed cables, power supply, Adapters and so on, but the Screen Crab keeps telling me that there is no signal, even though there is.

The signal comes from a Lenovo X270 in its Docking station via HDMI to the Screen Crab and further via an HDMI to DVI Cable to a Lenovo Thinkvision L1951pwd. It worked in the beginning with a few (3-4) screenshots but now no more. (I have to say that some screenshots were broken jpegs)

Tried another monitor and it works fine, HDMI 1.4 also connected via DVI adapter. The Lenovo Thinkvision is super old but already supports HDCP, maybe this is the problem. That would explain why it first worked but now, as the OS and the monitor got "to know each other" they probably swapped for HDCP... #noIdea

Ok make sure you tried theese things:


  • Do not use any adapters. For example an HDMI to DVI monitor adapter or any other kinds of adapters. If you don't have a monitor or use an adapter do this instead. Take your Screen Crab and plug the HDMI port into the ingoing port. It should make pictures if it's in the default configuration. You can see that at the blue light (if it's turned on). It solved my issue. Important is to leave the outgoing port empty without any HDMI cables. 


  • Use a stronger power source.


  • Try reformatting the SD-Card. It should be ExFAT. 


  • Make sure it only has one partition on the SD-Card.


  • Check on Cloud C2 if you recive there any pictures. Maybe it's a problem with the SD-Card itself and you should try another one. I recommend using a SD-Card above 8gb.


  • Use other HDMI cables


  • Try another Monitor, Device or TV.


I hope those tips will help y'all.
