Due to a weakness in the assembly of the flex cable used for the iris motor, there is a risk that a very limited number of the Cisco TelePresence Precision 60 Cameras mounted in the Cisco TelePresence SpeakerTrack 60 solution might lose the camera image during its lifetime.
In an inspection it was found that the flex cable used for the iris motor was incorrectly mounted. Tests of the affected cameras show that this flex cable will greatly reduce the lifetime.
This issue only applies to the Cisco TelePresence Precision 60 Cameras mounted in the Cisco TelePresence SpeakerTrack 60 solution.
Dependent upon the software version that runs on the camera, a failed camera will either show a test image or an image with a failure message about the iris motor failure.
We recommend replacement for this issue as no workaround is available.
Customers whose camera shows "Affected" in the "How to Identify Affected Products" section, and who have a valid service contract, should use the normal Return Material Authorization (RMA) process to request a replacement, CTS-CAM-P60=, for the affected hardware.
How To Identify Affected Products
There are several ways to locate the camera serial number:
- Open a web browser and enter the IP address of the video system in the address bar. When logged in, choose Configurations > Peripherals and locate the camera serial numbers under the Camera section.
- Access the codec's Application Programming Interface (API) with a connection method such as Secure Shell (SSH). When you are logged in, enter the xstatus cameras command and press Return/Enter. In the information returned, look for the '*s Cameras Camera 1 SerialNumber' and the '*s Cameras Camera 2 SerialNumber'.
- By a physical inspection of the camera. This requires you to disassemble part of the Cisco TelePresence SpeakerTrack 60 solution, as the serial number is located on the bottom/underneath of the camera. It might be helpful to follow the Cisco TelePresence SpeakerTrack 60 Installation Guide, in reverse order, all the way back to the demounting of the interface plate.
When the camera serial number has been located, enter the serial number into the Cisco Serial Number Validation Tool and this tool indicates whether or not the camera is affected.
