The cockpit will not show on the screen!

In the process of building openrov2.8. Towards the end of the build. We first plugged in the electronics and the cockpit and camera worked perfectly yet the servo,lights,and engines were not working. We then tried to disconected the BB from the Arduino then reconnected everything then the camera didnt work but everything else worked. So we did it one more time then nothing worked. looking at the troubleshooting techniques we then reflashed the BB, after plugging in the BB to the electronics and we got the cockpit to load and everything was working except for the camera. We then uploaded the software to the arduino then unpluggged then replugged in everything and now again nothing works. We even sent pings to the rov and got 0/4 and 1/4, so does this sound like a software issue?? Please help!

Update (09/24/2015)

OKay UPDATES! I reflashed the BB and now I have the rov working but the camera and now servo are not working correctly. The hud still gives me a sometimes frozen screen and looks noisy. I sent a ping to it and received back all four this time. Motors, lights work correctly, while lasers, servo, and camera do not work correctly. Please note the lazers are blinking only. So what should I do now? what could be the issue?

I have opened a support ticket (sent to your email) so that I can help you solve this problem. The question and answer part of the directions is meant for issues related to the build procedures and is not checked as often as our support system.
