Question about Cameras

Open Question

I have a philips observation camera VC86775T and on the back it only has a jack that fits a telephone cord that goes to a 56k modem. but says voltage 16 27v (DC), 1.5w. but there is not a power slot to hook up a power supply. How do I get this thing working? What do I need. Much help needed. Thanks

SOURCE: lost power charger will a

Some phones charge the battery in the camera like a phone, but many do not. The USB connection is meant to be used to transfer photos from the camera to a computer. If your (now lost) charger was plugged into the camera to charge it, and it plugged into the USB connector, then you can charge the camera with any lead that will fit the USB connector, as this will have a standard voltage. You can even charge it from the computer, without buying a separate charger.

However, if your charger charged the batteries outside the phone, by removing them from the phone and placing them in the charger, then it is very unlikely that they will charge in the phone, whatever you connect to it. I have a camera just like this, that requires an external charger.

All lights flashing


Unless the electronics is broke you seem to be having a wiring related issue. Besides a loop then a short in cable or at a port.

Verify no apparent physical stress displayed on unit or cabling and the correct power supply.

One test for bad electronics is by removing all wires, then look for bent & touching conductors in any of the ports from a poorly crimped cord damaging the port. Try to straighten back into shape - 8 per jack or once the touched eliminated if meta fingers bent my not be able to use that port and check the cable ends for cause and don't use.
Without any cords return power. Only the power light should remain on after about 3 seconds. Any other light display says problem and after verifying correct power supply call it toast - it broken.
If only the power light is lit then connect the 8 conductor (4-pair) Ethernet cable from the cable or DSL modem. That port should light if that device is alive. Note: No telephone RJ-11 size 2 or 3 pair cords, if it fits in a telephone jack you got the wrong one and can damage a port physically. RJ-45s used in Ethernet
are noticeably larger.
Assuming no strangeness in the other lights with the cable/DSL modem connected add one cord at a time to the other ports. Stop and remove any that caused/causes the initially observed condition that is the problem leg; try a different cord and examine the problem cord for physical damage (cuts, tears, squashed blemished area, ends pulled such that conductor open, or two or more wires shorted on an end)
As to internet connection try with only link to Cable/DSL modem and one cable to a PC and then see if the PC is obtaining an IP address via DHCP filling in the interface settings. If Windows "ipconfig" if Mac OS/X or Linux "ifconfig eth0" at the command prompt in a terminal window. Ping the entry for gateway, if no lost packets the connection is sound PC through e-switch to modem. Enter as new problem with modem type and PC operating system if this is a problem after the wiring is straightened out.
When the switch is working correctly Power light is steady ON and Port lights are mostly ON but blink with traffic down that leg.
Does this help?

The winding sound means that theres a cord trying to get friendly with one of the internal fans or theres just alot of dirt built up in a fan. If theres no telephone jack and you want one then you'll need to purchase a PCI 56k modem.

it is a router. not a modem. you just dont plug a telephone jack on a router because it will not fit. you have to insert a lan cable from your modem to the router, and the telephone jack is inserted on the modem

Telephone line connection


Two options:

1) Pick up a phone line splitter (Radio Shack or just about any other retailer has them) that has a plug on one side and two jacks on the other. Plug this into the phone jack where the line to your computer is connected. Plug the cord to the computer back into one jack on the splitter and plug the line to the fax machine into the other jack. (If it will physically fit into the space on the back of the computer, you can just plug the splitter into the modem connector, plug the line cord into one jack and the fax cord into the other.)

2) (Useful if the phone jack is behind furniture or just hard to get at.) Get a phone line splitter with all jacks (two on one side, on on the other). Unplug the line cord from the computer and plug it into the single jack on one side of the splitter. Then run a new line cord from one of the two jacks on the other side back to your computer. Plug the cord to the fax machine into the other jack.

run the telephone line from your modem into the wall jack. From the modem connect a network cable (cat5) into the back ( via the uplink port) of your linksys router . Your router can now route the IP from the modem.

Power supply for 3Com U.S. Robotics fax modem.


You need 9V/1A supply (with +9V at center pin) for your model with beige case. Do not use 22V/1.5A supply for old 33.6k model with
gray case. The shapes of the cases are very similar (56k has fever
leds, no external volume control, and no connectors for external
telephone equipment and external speaker), but the power supply
voltages and currents are completely different.
I hope this will help.

I can't receive and send fax


The splitter the technician is referring to goes on the wall jack. One should have come with the "modem" installation package.
Take a regular telephone cord and plug one end into the splitter and the other into the line jack on the Fax/printer.
When your done you should have two phone cords connected to the splitter - one going to the "modem" and the other to the printer.

In Use Memory is flashing and there is a clicking sound.


Okay, this is what happens when you put your USB cable into the external device jack next to the telephone line jack (instead of the USB port). Once you plug the stuff in correctly, the problem goes away.
