So the maestro booted to the windows lock screen. Then I saw the camera icon and being curious I clicked it expecting a black screen to pop up. Well that isn't what happened. I saw thisimage Wierd. Thought it was an artifact on the screen. Turned the light off to take a picture and it went away. Turns out there must be some kind of optical device in the phones jack on the back. I took a video of covering and uncovering it with the phone and the maestro screen reacting. Im assuming there is an optical audio device in there? Odd that windows saw it as a camera.

    You need to do a full shutdown of the Maestro by pressing and holding the power button for 10-15 seconds.  When the blue screen shows up keep holding the power button until the screen goes blank.  Wait about 15 more seconds and then press and hold the power button for 5-6 seconds to do a normal boot.

    Yeah it booted back up no problem i think the reason for it booting up odd was i had it powered by a 12v battery pack into the power in port. It ran flat and im sure caused the odd boot. I just thought it was interesting that there is some sort of optical device in there.
