Nest home hub max camera

Community Member

Have tried all the recommendations for getting the camera to work with no success. Camera used to work fine up until a few months ago. I was able to get it working again but shortly after it has stopped working. Maybe camera is bad but don’t know how to test.

I also am not able to set up the dish account as it also just says something went wrong. The dish integration used to work fine and then a couple weeks ago it stopped working.

Hi Lclewis,


Thanks for reaching out. What is the make and model of your router? How far is the router from your Google Nest Hub Max? Try to set it up in a new home structure and observe if it makes a difference. See the troubleshooting below:


  1. Remove the Nest Hub Max from its current home structure.
  2. Factory reset the Nest Hub Max.
  3. Create a new home structure.
  4. Set up the Nest Hub Max and its built-in Nest Cam on the new home structure.
  5. If the additional steps don't resolve the issue, have the customer turn on device usage data and crash reports.
