Interesting, from what I remember the doorbell Web Interface has been stripped down to pretty much bare bones options in all firmware versions but it's been a while since I've looked at one with the original firmware. At any rate I've linked the original firmware below:

Let me know if that doesn't get it working.

Thanks - this seemed to get it working again! I didn't see the storage tab, but when I went to replay videos, it definitely worked. Thanks again!

A bit disappointed after a few months. The night view is getting more awful by the week. There is a lens flare visible in the middle only at night. Is this something what can be fixed?
If have added 3 images from the start of using the doorbell in January till now!

Mine has done the same. My street does not have street lights so I leave a 100 Watt LED outdoor porch light on all night. This keeps the camera on color mode all night and it looks pretty good. The only negative is that if someone where to walk past the porch light, the camera may have a difficult time getting a clear shot of the individual but having a blurry night time lens wouldn’t be any better...

Looks like condensation. Have you examined with a flashlight during the time of this "lens flare" ?

During daytime you see a small blurry spot in the middle of the lens, see images attached. In daytime quality is okay but also a light flare is visible!
In case of condensation, how to fix this. The camera is waterproof so no condensation should be shown!

That first image of the outside is not clear enough (out of focus?) to discern if it's condensation.
If it is, in fact, condensation, it can occur under certain circumstances none of which are considered acceptable but it does happen.
There are threads about different video doorbells where the issue is discussed, perhaps even somewhere in this thread.

@WilRC I can't tell from the picture of the doorbell because it's blurry but did you remove the film that's on the black IR ring around the lens?

A lot of people I've talked to didn't know it was there, after removing it helped clear up the night image.

You also may want to make sure the faceplate of the doorbell is pushed down all the way and the screw is in place that holds it on.

Hi Ryan, I disassembled the doorbell and indeed there was a film on the black IR ring. I removed it. Further, I cleaned the cap inside, it was condensation. Put doorbell back together. The night view is better but not perfect. It will work for this moment but it should not happen that the doorbell has moisture inside!

That's a lot better. The doorbells are supposed to be IP54 rated which means:

The "5" in IP54 means (solids): Limited protection against dust ingress. (no harmful deposit)
The "4" in IP54 means (liquids): Protected against splash water from any direction.

but we've seen more than one with condensation on the inside of the lens...
