There's a reset button. It'll clear the user config. There is no default account.

SOURCE: BL-C131 died during firmware upgrade

Sounds like you may have to go through the original set up again - allocating ports - connecting the ethernet cable to the webcams to allow the router to recognise them etc etc
I suggest you buy the operating manual that is available from the website - Unfortunately its not available electronically.

SOURCE: Lost the Setup CD

You will not find any software to do this on the Panasonic website. They only supply instruction manuals and firmware upgrades.However you don't need any installation CD. This camera is a web server so it contains all its own software. All you need is to type in the local network IP address (default is 192.168.0.253) into your Internet Browser and then enter your ID and password into the screen that pops up. The installation CD is just scanning your network to look for a camera on some IP address and it makes things a little easier if you have multiple cameras. All the rest of the setup is actually in the camera's Active-X software. If you previously set the camera up with a different IP address and/or port number and you have forgotten it, or you can't remember your User ID and password, (write it down the next time) you may have to reset the camera (see the small reset switch on the underside of the camera) and you will have to start from scratch. But you don't need the installation CD. The camera will ask you exactly the same questions as the CD. Typically you will have to set it up first in wired mode with an Ethernet cable to your router, but this is only because the camera doesn't know the SSID of your wireless network until you tell it (go to Setup/Wireless when you have logged into the camera.) Once you have put in the required wireless info, you just flick the switch on the underside to Wireless Mode and it should all work just fine.

Web Camera's have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

Next "Calling and Devices" on the right, set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card or headphones/mike.
Next go to the Test Audio section below where you just setup the microphone & speaker and (written in blue) click on "Open the call setup assistant"
and the "Yahoo Call Setup Assistant" window will open to the left and follow the the instructions. Click on FINISH and the audio will be setup.
Next go to "Webcam" and click in the circle "Allways allow the following people to view my webcam.
Next Click on "Super Webcam" snd in the circle click "Start Super Webcam mode automatically".
Then click OK and it should work.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:
http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
On the VIM sign-in window, click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.

SOURCE: How to record transmission of BL-C131

Hi,

To view over the internet,
1. setup a wifi with internet active.
2. Insert the CD which came with the cam into your laptop which is connected to the wifi as well. Follow instructions. It is simple. If you need help, click here.
3. Make a new DDNS account if you don't have a static public ip (if you don't know what that is, you dont have one).

You are ready to go.

I can't get this website to work. 192.168.0.253. It's supposed to be the website to configure my BL-131 Network Camera. I got the camera a couple of years ago and just now replaced my router. ...


Replacing the router will not have changed any settings in the camera. The IP address 192.168.0.253 is the factory default for the camera, unless you assigned a new one when you set the camera up.

This is a wired/wireless camera, and if you're trying to connect wirelessly you probably have a router setup issue. Like any wireless device, the camera needs to provide the right key to connect. If you haven't set up your new router's wireless security yet, or set it up with a different key than the old one, the camera won't be able to connect. If the camera's not on your network, you won't reach it and you'll have the problem you described.

The simplest thing to do is to start fresh. Reset the camera to factory defaults with its rear-panel reset button. The button is recessed and you'll need a pen or other object to press it for a couple of seconds. Connect the camera to the router using a cable, and you'll be able to reach it again on 192.168.0.253. Set up the wireless network in your router (assign network name, security key, etc.). Then go through the camera wireless setup steps so it can connect to your network and you'll be back in business.

If you need a copy, you can download the manual and find other information here from Panasonic.

BL-C131 port forwarding.


So you've configured port forwarding on the router. Do you have any anti-virus applications installed or have your set an exclusion in Windows firewall?

BL-C131 died during firmware upgrade


Seems to be a common problem for these cameras even without doing firmware upgrade. The finnish importer Kaukomarkkinat Oy will not acknowledge it and will only sell new ones to customers complaining about this.

When i switch to wireless mode, camera stays in;privacy mode


Unfortunately the electronic operating instructions are not available from the support website and have to be purchased from Panasonic.
I think it will be a case of re-setting the camera to factory settings and re-program the webcam again
