Hello.
I've got a second used Spark.
This Spark coming with this error
Image1.jpg

Shooting by cell camera, it doesn't light the front sensor neither the downward.
These sensors are lighted in my working Spark.

Can I fly without infrared sensors?

What's the spare parts that I've to buy?
Downward and front sensors are on the same board?

Thanks.

You can ry turning off forward sensors in settings, maybe the warning will cease, and yes you can fly without them.
The warning would be annoying constantly though.

Consider sending to DJI (open up a service ticket) as they do repair reasonably cheap quite often.

If it is the sensor module, they seem to be available, this one form a local search I just dod to check, in Austrlalia, they should be around the place in other locations.

The downward sensor module is different . . . this a US ad.

The code 200 error seems to be main camera related ??
Do you have camera vision ??

There are threads on the DJI forum I found with a simple google search for spark error 200 . . .

https://www.google.com/search?q=dji...i30j0i390l4.4761j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

Examples for other aircraft errors mostly, but with Go3 the error code would be the same for all aircraft.

Could be microSD card related too !!
See post 2 this thread . . .

Error code 200

Try that and see if code 200 error is removed on new start up.

Thanks for your answer.
Both sensor are down because I don't see the infrared light on both (front and down).
I've got a flat with both sensor for 12$ (used).

Whoops, I posted same forward sensor link above (corrected now), the downward sensor example is here . . .


The forward sensors (for obstacle avoidance}) are behind that front (redd-ish) looking panel, IR lights I guess.

As seen here, was a unstable flat connection on infrared sensors.

Video on Youtube

I've only pressed the connectors with my fingers: now sensor works!
No error in dashboard and I see the infrared with the cellular camera.

Now I've used a little paper shim because I don't have anything with me (I'm on vacation).

Tomorrow morning I'll test safely.
Great news.
Ps: I've received this drone without the 6 screw.
What kind of screws are?

2mm? Length?
Head shape?
