Yeh your car has a dumb receiever and works by transmitting the code from your key-fob. Either the key-fob is not transmitting correctly or the car is not recognising the code. Testing by using a phone camera only tells you if the key is transmitting a signal and won't tell you at what strength. I suggest you take the key to a good locksmiths who have the proper kit for testing transmission strength, etc.
