Question about Panasonic BL-C10A Network Camera

Open Question

Camera flashes amber after resetting but then goes solid amber instead of green

When I type in the ethernet address in Easy Setup it says Preparing network configuration based on this computers network settings. Sometimes I get another dialog asking to confirm IP numbers but it takes a long time and nothing seems to happen. I never get a green light on the camera. I'm plugged in via ethernet but my connection on this computer is normally wireless so it's active also. Do I need to disable my wireless connection on the computer?

SOURCE: Can't connect after firmware upgrade!

Follow the instructions below and it will work.

Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program.

When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.
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.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.


A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) set it up as follows:

1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
2. Then click on the Video Settings.
3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.

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

1. On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
2. Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
3. Next click on Enhanced IM.
4. Then click on Audio Video.
5. The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera

Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
· The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
· images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.

After you get your camera installed properly, DO NOT unplug it from the USB port as it will cause
the drivers to be corrupt and render the camera unusable till reinstalled it properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Door goes down partially then stops and opener clicks rapitedly


If it clicks 10 times and the light flashes 10 times then your inferred safety beams are out of alignment. Make sure they are both on solid. One should have a green light and one should have an amber light. Make sure the green light is on solid and bright.

Amber light blinking next to ethernet cable


In most cases an amber lights are usually just connection lights. They let you know the ethernet cable is connected and able to transfer data.
You will want to ensure the printer has a static ip address set in it's configuration, otherwise the ip address will change from time to time causing print issues.

No network access. Can not ping. Solid amber light on top and solid green on bottom on NIC card.


Have you printed a configuration page to see if it reset the IP address?
If the IP has not somehow changed, then try simply removing and reseating the network boards. Pretty easy to do, remove the screws and just slide the assembly out and back in to clean the contacts.
If those two things dont fix it then the NIC board is bad. Pretty rare that that board fails.

Hello, I've followed the steps to set up my tv-ip100(w)-n trendnet camera, but when I open the setup, the camera can't be found to run the wizard. any ideas? I've tried turning off windows firewall,...


I need you to plug it back in using the Ethernet connection.

You will need to change the ip address on your lan adapter.

When you plug the Ethernet cable into your computer there should be two little computers that popup on the lower right hand corner of your screen. You need to right click the computers then select (STATUS), (PROPERTIES), (INTERNET PROTOCOL TCP/IP), (SELECT THE BUBBLE THAT SAYS (USE THE FOLLOWING IP ADDRESS). THEN TYPE THE FOLLOWING:

IP ADDRESS= 192.168.10.31 THEN HIT THE TAB KEY

THE SUBNET MASK SHOULD AUTO FILL.

THEN CLICK (OK) AND (OK AGAIN).

OPEN AN INTERNET EXPLORER BROWSER

TYPE 192.168.1.30 IN THE ADDRESS BAR AT THE TOP.

USERNAME: admin

PASSWORD: admin

That's it your in if you need help with the setup let me know.

When you have completed the setup of the camera you will need to go back into the network adapter setting and select the (OBTAIN ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY BUBBLE) in order to get back on your local network.



Thanks,


Chad

Hi,
To start you need to factory reset both adapters,
plug them both into a wall socket next to each other, press the config/f reset button, hold in until ap light goes off, repeat on the other one.
Now you should have a red status light on both.
Press the config/f reset button on one for about 5 seconds, wait until ap light stays on, this one is now your access point (ap) that should be plugged in to your router when you have finished config.
Now press the ap adapter config button again for about 5 seconds until ap light flashes, then press the config button on the other adapter until ap light flashes, wait until they both stop flashing, wait a few seconds, the status light on both adapters should be green, and one adapter should have an amber ap light.
Hope this helps.
