DCS 6620 focus problem

I have a d-link DCS 6620 PTZ IP camera in an enclosure outside. It has been working fine for the last 4 years. About 2 weeks ago the picture got blurry. I removed it from the enclosure and brought it inside for testing. I set up a test sheet of paper with text to view the video. I was able to determine that the video is only blurry in the center of the picture the outsides edges are in focus. Any ideas as to what the problem may be?

I have to 4 standard bullet cctv cameras 2 are working to are not can it be in setting


Hello George Wolfe,

Absolutely... but only one way to find out (go commando).

I've got very impressed by a lady that was highly dissatisfied by the color presentation from her SWANN PTZ (smoked dome) many years ago...

Said she had attempted to work with TECHNICAL SUPPORT to adjust color but remained UNSATISFIED with the color...

She wrote on AMAZON... That she just went "COMMANDO"
and did it all herself and was really pleased with her results...
(Jealous... and still no idea what commando was).

Probably a decade later MY DARLING wife was trying to spin one of our cameras... and blacked out OUR front PTZ
(which has always had pretty drab color)...

Then the little darling WENT COMMANDO... (women are awesome smart)... Stepped into the set-up menu
mid set all the contrast, bright & colors... and tuned everything to exactly match the UN-SMOKED fixed focus cameras...

Long and the short of this STORY... I asked her how... she said one camera had a setting tab... the other had a gear-wheel. She clicked on that... and the rest was fined tuning CAMERA HISTORY.

Get into the settings of your "working" cameras...
Check out your settings (night & day)... THEN...
Takes notes and check out your "DARK" cameras.

If you cannot pull out a picture by re-setting these
basic camera settings: all to the mid-range... then tweeking the color settings until you are DELIGHTED with your picture

Take plenty of notes or scree shots to
TRACK YOUR CHANGES... If there is anything that is still working... this is the way to get them back.

ELSE
Get yourself some NEW working cameras.

Dlink cloud camera buzzing


I had the same issue - this is a bad amplifier in the camera, I was under warranty when it happened, they sent me a new one. Dlink cameras are hit and miss. I have some INDOOR camera that have been running OUTSIDE (covered) in FL for years. Then I had one inside 6 months - just stopped working. Their quality is so, so.

I am looking for someone to repair 4 DCS-6620 cameras. It isn't a sofware problem it is hardware that needs to be fixed. Example camera came off base.


Any luck?
I have 7 of these that need service for one reason or another. They began to fail shortly after the warranty ran out, and have recently begun to fail much more quickly.
Next time, before I buy 62 cameras, I'll make sure I'm dealing with a company who services their product...D-Link tells me they simply don't and that these are $900 DISPOSABLE units.
Please let me know, too, if you can fix these (various problems depending on camera include include motors not working, no image produced, etc)...I can send them wherever they need to go.

How to set Static local IP Address for D-link DCS 5220 IP Camera? Am using Linksys WRTG54 Router, with SSID & WPA. I had set the D-Link DCS wireless to use the same SSID and WPA, but once I plug out...


To set a static IP on the camera, do the following:

1. Chose an IP address for the camera that is outside your normal DHCP range but within your network subnet.
For example, if your router uses DHCP and gives out addresses in the range of 192.168.1.1 up to 192.168.1.10, you should chose an IP address beyond that (e.g. 192.168.1.20).
2. Login to your camera's current IP address and go to Setup -> Network setup
3. Turn off DHCP and type in the IP address that you chose into the configuration.
4. Restart your camera.

The above should fix your Static IP address question.

With regards to your Wireless question, you should make sure of the following:
1. Your router is set to broadcast its SSID
2. Your router is setup to use WPA (not WPA2)
3. Your AES password in the camera config is the same as that as the routers

Hope this helps

You need to NAT first. Just NAT internal ip :internal port with External IP :external port.

DCS-6620 locks up and will not Pan and Tilt


From wat ya say it seems to me that you are loosing ya signal sometimes? perhaps a "Better" antenna on the Base unit may help, one with a "High Gain" Also perhaps ya need to check and clean any connections etc. Hope that helps.
