Question about Jasco Ge Intellicorder

1 Answer

No lcd display on GE Intellicorder

I just purchased and installed a GE IntelliCorder™ Camera System charged the main battery while I installed the camera unit at the door peep hole. Following the manual, I removed the plastic film from the smaller battery. Loaded the main (newly charged) battery and got no signal or pattern on the LCD. Just stays black. I double checked the main battery and charger says it is fully charged. I wanted to set the time and date, etc. on the display, no matter what buttons I pushed, nothing appears on the LCD. No indication of power to the LCD, so I thought perhaps I have to connect it to the door unit to make it work. Doesn`t sound logical, but being desperate I mounted the unit to the installed door camera cable. Still nothing. Frustrating, indeed. I do not have a SD/MMC card for this unit (yet), but I do not believe having  a memory card in the unit is essential to the working of the LCD. I am thinking there is fault in the electronics, something beyond my DIY ability to correct. But, . . . figured I try asking an ''expert'' before shipping the unit back to the store I bought it from. Help please?!

    Thanks, WirelessGreg, for your quick reply during this Holiday Season!
     The Manual you referred me to and your advice was helpful. However, the model of this particular product shown in the online manual has different battery configuration from my model. Everything is exactly the same in this model, however. Perhaps my model is a newer version, since it, came with a single 3.7 v battery (with special charger), similar to the ones used in digital cameras. I tested my battery with a voltage meter and it was at full power. Also, my unit came with a complete Owners Manual, but there was no mention of this problem in the Trouble Shooting Section. Frustrated and unable to solve this problem on my own, I returned the unit to the seller for a refund. Hopefully for a Full Refund.?
    Thanks again for your assistance!
    Have a Successful, Happy and Healthy New Year!     DIY Japan

For a blank LCD screen, the troubleshooting section of the manual says you need 3 new or fully charged alkaline batteries AND you need to firmly connect all cables.

What you have described certainly sounds like a power issue. Any chance the batteries are installed backward? Have you tried 3 brand new alkaline batteries?

This is from the manual page 17 found here:

You probably have a malfunctioning charging unit, a bad battery, or a defective display,

  1. Borrow a compatible charger and fully charge the battery.
  2. Install a new battery and see if the problem persists,
  3. Replace the display though it's it's and expensive procedure for such an old camera. It will be much cheaper to go on eBay and upgrade your Kodak EasyShare CX7300 Digital Camera.

Camera will not charge, shows blinking orange but will not turn on... when it does, it's to a "battery exhausted" screen or the lcd display with a low battery symbol. Also doesn't show on...

It could possibly be the battery or the charger itself.Try purchasing the charger it self.Use the old battery to see if it will charge it. If it does not charge you may have to purchase a new well.

No LCD display, "CLOCK" flashing

Seems the camera's internal battery (different from the EN-EL3 main battery) has drained. As the manual says, you can recharge the internal battery by leaving a fully-charged main battery in the camera for three days.

If the camera continues to pester you for clock setting, you'll have to send it in for service. (Opening the camera likely voided your warranty, btw.)

I have no picture on my digital when I turn the power on

First and most obvious is make sure the lens cap is off. Second try pressing the display button onyxfl98.pnga few times to adjust the lcd backlight. If you still have not display make sure the batteries are charged and installed properly and that there are no video output cables connected to the camera. If all else fails you can factory reset the camera by holding all 3 of the main buttons on the back of the camera (display, menu, image size) while you turn on the camera.

To prolong battery life
Dear GE Valued Customer,
There have been reported incidents that the battery indicator meter of some GE A735 and A835 digital cameras may be under-reporting battery levels on certain types of batteries, and accordingly, we have released a firmware update to reset the battery indicator meter.
We extend our sincerest apologies for any inconveniences that this may have caused you, and we make every effort to achieve the highest levels of quality possible and request your continued support. Should you need any assistance, please contact us at 1-800-730-6597.
Symptoms and Cause
In certain units, the voltage of fully charged batteries may be under-reported by the camera’s battery meter, which causes the batteries to be registered as only 1/3 power, or in some cases, zero power (displayed on the LCD screen as "Power Exhausted").
The battery indicator meter can be reset by following the instructions below to install the latest firmware to your camera.
