Troubleshooting camera issues

Troubleshooting video

First, watch this video for help with troubleshooting the camera:


Range/image quality issues

If it's within 20M there shouldn't be too much interference. If the camera is a bit too far away, and your receiver has a detachable antenna, you can purchase a 7DBz antenna which comes with a cable, so you could mount the antenna outside to avoid some of the interference issues.

Or if the receiver is situated next to a window this is usually worse than a wall, as glass is very dense and will block the signal, so try not to have it in front of a window.

 

You can also take a look at this guide for some tips.


Camera seems unresponsive or dead

Is there a red LED on the receiver box (the LED's on the camera are infra-red so cannot be seen by the human eye), and does the camera get warm when it has been plugged in for a while? If so then you can be sure both power supplies are working.


You should also confirm that both camera and receiver are set to the same channel. If the camera still seems dead, please create a support ticket detailing what you have tested so far.


Doesn't connect to Wi-Fi

Unfortunately the wireless camera kit (NC701G) cannot connect to Wi-Fi, it is analogue and so it can only connect to a TV or to a PC (if you use a USB adapter).


If you are keen to be able to view the camera feed online and share it with people, you have two options. You can use a USB capture device and this guide to set the camera up for live streaming via Youtube, or you can return the camera and swap it for one of our Wi-Fi or wired cameras that can connect to an internet router. These cameras can be viewed on a computer or app without the need for additional equipment. 


If you have any questions about setting up the live stream let me know, or if you would like to exchange the kit for a camera that can connect to an internet router, just give our sales team a ring on 01173252470 and quote your original order number/invoice, they will be able to arrange the exchange for you. 


Lights don't turn on

The LED's on this camera are infra-red, so the light they emit isn't visible to the human eye. They will automatically activate once the light levels drop enough (this is why the camera goes black and white), and you'll be able to see the infra-red light they emit when viewing the camera feed on your TV.


Cannot connect to TV

If your TV does not have yellow and white connectors, you can buy an RCA to HDMI Video Adaptor from us which will connect the camera to your TV in one go.
