Question about Whistler 9mm Wireless Inspection Camera

1 Answer

The lights work intermittently and sometimes don't work at all on my Whistler 9mm inspection camera. How to fix?

The led lights on my inspection camera were working for part of a day and then quit working. A few hours later they were working again. Then they quit working all together. The batteries were good but I changed them anyway. The camera works fine. It is brand new. I got it for Christmas as a gift but can't get a receipt to exchange it. Is there a possible fix. I checked for continuity and voltage, but I don't have a wiring diagram so I can troubleshoot correctly. Customer Service was no help at all. Thanks.

    The model no. of this whistler 9mm inspection camera is IC-3709PX. It has a wireless monitor. The led lights for the camera are at the end of a 3 ft. flexible metal cable.that screws to the camera handle. The camera lens is also at the end of the 3 ft. cable.

    I see no way to open the cable end where the led lights and camera lens are positioned. Where the cable screws to the camera handle there are 4 prongs and a tab.

    This camera has nothing to do with air conditiioners.

I guess you will need to open the case up from the panel where the lights are visible. If you can, look for loose connections to the leds or the wires from the leds to the rest of the panel...good luck!

    The camera lens is at the end of a 3 ft. metal gooseneck cable. There is no accesss to the end of the cable. I added more info under my original posting.

    It appears that you will probably have to replace the gooseneck extention either under warantee or just purchase it. Please go the the following website for the information you need:

What causes my Shark Vacuum to work only intermittently?

If the brush roller operation is intermittent, there may be hair jammed inside the end caps. The brush roller can be removed and the end caps also for inspection. Intermittent operation also can be caused by a stretched drive belt.
The periodic failure to pick up may be caused by something such as a ball of hair migrating through your vacuum cleaner and stopping from time to time to test your patience

How to see if your remote control is actually working

For remotes which use an IR connection you can see if they are transmitting using this trick. An IR type of remote will have one or two LED's on the front end. If it doesn't, than it may be an RF type of remote - this tip will not work for those.

Get some electronic device which can view a live image on a screen. A cell phone camera, digital camera, digital video camera, and (I think) even a web-cam will work. If you're using a digital (still) camera, you don't need to take a picture as long as you see a live image on the screen of whatever the camera is pointing at. Take your remote and find the LED on the front end. There may be one or two. (If there's two, one actually isn't an LED, but that's not too important.) Point the front of the remote at the camera (LED's facing the camera), and press buttons. You should see the LED's light up in the live image. While these LED's normally produce light which the human eye can't see, digital image sensors can, and they change this invisible light to light we can see on the screen. (Cool right?) So, if your remote is working then you'll see the LED light up on the display. (To make sure your camera is actually working as I am suggesting here, find a remote which you know does work and try it.)

The LED should light up for every button pressed. If one button doesn't make the LED glow, you may have a bad button - try pressing it firmly. Buttons can wear out. The image of the LED may appear steady or it may pulse or blink on the viewscreen - this is normal.

If the LED doesn't light up, and you know your camera works like this (you've checked a good remote), try new batteries - that solves most problems. Check the battery contacts in the remote - if they're corroded, (white flaky stuff caked on, looks like dried up salt) - you can clean the contacts with a solution of water and baking soda and a Q-Tip. Use a knife to remove any large chunks. Also, some fine sand paper works too. Both the flat contacts and the springs need to be cleaned. Wash any tools (and hands) with soap and water afterwards. Handle corroded batteries as little as possible - or better yet, use gloves.

If you have good batteries and the contacts are clean, and the LED is not lighting up - it's pooched. Try getting a replacement from the manufacturer (call or email/write them), or use a universal remote.

these trucks have a generic body control module in the left kickpanel. just remove the plastic trim from the drivers floor molding to access the module. inspect the wire for green dust or gel. if there is signs of this then you have a corrosion problem. disconnect you battery and then try cleaning the corrosion all off using contact cleaner and penetrating oil. once the corrosion is gone then reconnect everything and try to see if it works. If not then it is possible that the module is damaged. you will need a new one.

Nikon MD12 Operation intermittent through lack of use

This could be the lubrication dried up in your MD12. Fighting the dried lubrication would make it sluggish and continued fighting would make the motor eventually die. A good source for parts or replacement MD12 is Ebay.
A camera repair shop could replace the lubricant, replace any stripped gears or the dead motor and test it for you.

Whistler 35R just quit. fuse and pwer cord is fine.

Orginal whistler power cords do not have LEDs lights in them and there is no electronics in the plug - 12 volts in, 12 volts out. Sounds like you have a bad cord or a cord that is meant for a GPS unit or other 5 volt device.
