I own about 12x unit of 808 #16 where 5x of them have the same problem like yours after several usage especially if the lens module knocked hard, i solved it by replacing the lens camera module because some parts of the ribbon connection behind the camera lens module is loose or damaged. Try apply pressure behind the camera module's metal panel where the ribbon is and activate. Sometime the camera module is overheating else check the ribbon connection.

Wow, 12 units are much! You were right ribbon connector issue. Thanks

If it's the D lens, remove the lens cap.

(ETA: Seriously, you'll likely save yourself future heartache if you paint the lens cap or put some colored tape on it -- it's really easy to forget to remove it.)

The coating on the case of my 808 started to turn into a sticky gooey mess. I took the innards out and the sticky coating cleaned off easily enough with soap and water. A little persuasion scrapping with a thumbnail was needed here and there.

Same here all my 808 case turned gooey and sticky too, not sure what causes it because some not exposed to sunlight or stuff that causes decay. China plastics?

Simple deterioration over time; I had some of those tiny little twist-to-open speakers also covered with that velvet feeling material which -after a substantial period of time- also turned into a sticky mess without being in the sun (they were stored in their bag, in a drawer)

I wonder what kind of chemical composition that made up those gooey stuff on the casing, is it harmless or something similar made out from glue compound? I always have china camera from Runcam M10+ plus and Foxtech Horyzon HD ended up having gooey coating after 2 years of use all tuck nicely under the drawer, but they all have same thing in common = all of them have black casing. Branded camera like Sony and GoPro had none.

my volvo's air-con knobs did the same thing as the 808 case.
