 +====== I don't see any video when I run PixyMon ======
 +
 +
 +===== 1. Is the lens cap still on? =====
 +
 +I know, it's almost a joke, but it happens...
 +
 +
 +===== 2. It's normal not to see video in PixyMon =====
 +
 +When you run PixyMon, the first screen you see will be black. And you might see some white rectangles with labels. This is called the "​default program"​ and it's Pixy doing what it does -- detecting objects and providing locations and sizes of the detected objects (represented by rectangles). The "​default program"​ also streams the detected object information through one of its interfaces (SPI, I2C, UART, Analog/​digital I/O), but there is no "​video",​ no raw pixels.

 +
 +(If you don't see rectangles, you may need to [[wiki:​v2:​Teach_Pixy_an_object|teach Pixy an object]].)
 +
 +If you want to see video, click on the "​Raw"​ or "​Cooked"​ icons at the top of the PixyMon window. Note, in "​Raw"​ or "​Cooked"​ modes, Pixy doesn'​t stream detected object information through one of its interfaces (SPI, I2C, UART, Analog/​digital I/O).

 +===== 3. If you see an error message in PixyMon =====
 +
 +If you see an error message in Pixymon such as "No Pixy devices have been detected",​ go [[wiki:​v2:​I_get_the_message_%22No_Pixy_devices_have_been_detected%22_in_PixyMon|here]].
