Please check if you enabled the Screen Saver Mode in the menu, the screen will turn off after the set time, but the camera is still recording.      

We don't suggest keeping the screen always on, it will use more power. 

Most of such issue is related with the memory card, please format the card first. If that doesn't work, you can also try to replace with a new memory card.

Firstly, please make sure the hardwire kit and fuse taps are connected correctly and firmly, if the issue continues, please choose the highest protection rate: 12.4V/24.8V. 

If the low voltage protection does not work, please check if the ACC cable was installed right or not.
