Netgear Arlo Camera Shows Low Battery Even with Fresh Battery Installed

Recently, I had let my back yard Arlo camera run low on batteries for weeks. I kept forgetting to change their batteries. Finally I did that a few days ago. But after putting in two sets of fresh batteries, the Arlo app still shows low batteries on the Arlo camera.

I tried removing the camera from the Arlo app, then tried re-sync the base station to the Arlo camera. But both devices just times out. I could not get either of them to recognize the other.

I tried leaving the battery out for a day or two and try again, but it doesn't work either. The same symptom persisted.

Finally, I decided to turn off the base station, wait two seconds, and turn the base station back on. The Arlo camera was still blinking blue to indicate sync mode. The Arlo base station took a while to boot up. Then all of a sudden, I see the Arlo camera blinking blue quickly (indicating syncing successful). I checked the app again and the camera's there!

I guess it was a base station problem when I assumed it was the camera's problem.
