    I have a similar problem. I cannot use any of the controls including the on and off switch. I can pull the plug and plug it back in and the same clicking sound occurs and also the green led next to the hard drive light flickers.

    I have this issue too. I know that it is a power supply issue because checking the voltages at the disk drive power connector yields strange out of spec voltages... not even close to 5V & 12V.
    The bad power will often take out the drive. I have to trace the circuit upstream to see where it is going bad. Please let me know if you guys pinpoint the failing component before I do. Mike

Hello sunrisepmp, i bought the model lorex l19wd and i have some problems with the remote connection. i can`t view my cameras remotely...

Locally everything work perfect but when i try to establish a remote connection, the lorex client 7.0 tell me that the connection is sucessfully but i can`t see any image.

I`ve a linksys wrt54G router and a speedstreem 4200 modem, i connect the system directly to the modem, also i create an DDNS Account (i had a doubt about the mac adress that you have to put at the form, i filled with the mac of the system) and i configured the system with the information that you sent me to my email, like the manual said...

Thank You

I have just bought swann cctv cameras for my home And on the recorder the blue light is flashing is this normal ??

I too own a Swann security system. The flashing light indicates that one or more of your cameras has sensed movement and is recording images onto the hard drive. This is 100% normal and means everything is working. Use the mouse that came with your system and click on the house icon, this is where you tweak your system to do what you want. I've had mine for 5 years and with the exception of some camera failures it works great!

sounds like there is a short somewhere. you need to start checking things with a multi meter, could be a bad switch. I would recommend picking up a factory service manual for your vehicle off of ebay. If you need any further assistance let me know.

Plug in and red light flashes and makes a click sound

How many times this standby/power light blinks at one time switch ON? Count it carefully. These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. This will make repair easy. For more information, check the link

Sharp model lc-20sh1u won't turn on, just makes a clicking sound and indicator light flashes red.

The clicking sound may be a power relay coming on and then off--problem indicates a trouble in the main power supply.

I use Omron H3CR 8pin to my CCTV in my car. I use pin 2 for ground,pin 7 for ignition, pin 4&5 for direct current from battery and pin 8 to +ve CCTV. My problem is when I off the engine the timer is...

I don't have exact schematic for your 8-pin timer.
Use multimeter read ohms and voltage from pin socket to pin socket.
Use multimeter set to ohms to read continuity of pins on timer.
Pin timer relays have NO NC pins.
Some pins are Normally Open (no current flows until timer turns on)
The other pins are Normally Closed (current flows until timer turns on, and when timer turns on, this circuit turns off)
