When you crank the engine it knocks the dot off, the distance is set and the car fires up. The only bitch is that the paper dot stays in the engine. VIPERED you might do a good visual on the wiring. I've seen cam sensor faults due to chaffed wires from rubbing on pulleys.
The Viper sensor has a small plastic rib on it new. Are you also using the dot with sensors that have a rib ?
