Why is My Blink Camera Blinking Red and Blue?

If you have a blink camera, it may flash red and blue while connecting to your wireless network. This is usually a sign that the batteries are low and need to be replaced.

If the red light stays solid, you can use a small pin or paper clip to push the reset button on the bottom of the camera. Then wait for the light to change from red to blinking green/solid blue.

1. Low or Dead Batteries

If you have a Blink Mini, XT, or XT2 camera, it may sometimes display a blinking red and blue light. This can happen when the batteries are low or dead.

The blinking red light will usually only show up during the initial setup process, and then it’ll change to a solid green and blue signal when everything has been set up.

However, if the red LED light continues to flash for specific times, it’s time to check the batteries. Hopefully, you’ve been tracking your battery usage so you know when it’s time to replace them.

Alternatively, you can try resetting the camera to see if it fixes the problem. To reset the device, press the reset button underneath the camera with a thin object (like a pin or paper clip). The red LED should go away after a few seconds. If it takes longer, you may need to call Blink support for help.

2. No Internet Connection

If your Blink camera is blinking red and blue, there may be a problem with your internet connection. This could be due to a poor or missing signal or it may be because the Wi-Fi is disconnected from your router.

Often, the first thing you need to do is check the wifi strength in your camera’s location. This is easy to do using the app on your smart device.

You can also try restarting your router or reconnecting the sync module to your wi-fi network. If these steps do not help, call Blink support for assistance.

If your blink camera is blinking red and blue, there might be a problem with your Sync module. This usually occurs when you put your Blink camera too far away from the Wi-Fi module or when it is not receiving a strong enough signal.

3. Wi-Fi Issues

Blink cameras rely on Wi-Fi to operate. This can sometimes cause problems.

If you are experiencing a blink camera flashing red and blue, it is usually because of a Wi-Fi issue. To fix this, try one of the following methods:

1. Restart Internet Connection

If your Blink camera is unable to connect to the internet, it will display a red blinking light every few seconds. This will happen until the internet is restored and it can find a working connection.

2. Replace Batteries

If the red blinking light is showing because of low batteries, make sure that your batteries are fresh and installed correctly.

3. Reset Camera

If all else fails, you can attempt a difficult reset. This will reset your camera to factory default settings and restore it to its previous working state.

To reset your Blink camera, locate the reset button on the right side of the camera, near the USB port. Insert a thin object (such as a paper clip) into the hole, then press and hold the button for about five to six seconds.

4. Sync Module Issues

During the setup process for Blink cameras, some flashes of red light can appear. These are normal, but should stop once the camera has connected to an internet connection.

If your blink camera blinks red and blue, it could indicate a problem with the Sync Module. This is the device that allows your device to connect to Wi-Fi and the Blink app.

You can fix this issue by changing your Sync Module’s Wi-Fi network. The best way to do this is through the Blink app.

In the app, you should see a screen with a list of Wi-Fi networks that the Sync Module can detect. Select the one that you want to connect to, enter the password, and tap Join.

If your Sync Module’s Wi-Fi is still failing, you can try power cycling it. This will force it to reconnect to Wi-Fi and clear out any power fluctuations that might be affecting it.
