I have a Pi 4b, connected to a CR-10S. For quite a few months it has ran just fine, timelapses would spit out like clockwork, prints looking good. Then a few weeks ago the time lapses stop working, and after some investigation the webcamd service is always in "activating" state, not "active" state. And it seems to constantly restart every few minutes. I had this problem when i was doing the original build, and the;
sudo systemctl reset-failed webcamd.service
Cleared it right up, and as i said it ran for months. Only changes since are whatever plugins and such updated on the octopi, all latest. Needless to say this command has no effect now. Tried all the standard stuff, stop service start service, reset service. Is there a way to reinstall or repair the install of the webcamd service? I am I.T. savvy, but new to Pi world.
I do have 2 cameras, a Pi cam and a logitech C615 i believe it is. Again worked fine for months. I actually had this working with four camera, 2 additional Pi high quality cams, lens problem's got me to remove those 2, for now. I have a few other things attached, don't really think these are relevant, but just in case. I have some temp sensors, and fans, and relays triggering things in this build. I had Octoscreen running, but it started timing out too so removed it. Didn't have a whole lotta heart ache over that so the screen is unplugged now, however the plugins are still installed and running, and they do work, it just seems like it times out as well, however its timeout is hours.Not really concerned about fixing it at the moment, but these issues may be related, maybe not.
Another symptom is the control tab in octoprint does show both cameras, but seem to time out in about 30 seconds, and then just freeze. A refresh of the page and they both come back, for again 30 seconds or so.
I don't know how to run in safe mode, will be searching that next.
EDIT: I thought it might be relevant to mention that all devices are networked via hard wire, to a gigabit switch.
