    It's the cameras. Swann have the worst cameras of any security system on the market. I have replaced mine once in 6mths and now out of warranty (only just) all 4 have "fritzed" again! The solution is don't buy Swann products.

Your cameras might be in PAL mode, go into system settings and change to NTSC setting.

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!

I have a Swann CCTV DVR4-0044 720p 2x Cameras both we're clear night and day when new. Both now have very grainy poor pictures at night. I bought a new power pack following instruction, it didn't work

the cctv chip gets old and grainy. i have had to replace the camersa on some of my locations at least ones since new. plus if you haven't yet cleaned the glass over the lens do so. i have to clean mine at least once a year. yea tough job but then again you want security cameras and they do need maintenance. good luck with them.

How do i focus

These cameras do have a fixed focus. Perhaps the focusing is off, and should be adjusted on the camera. Please read the manual, for the specific way this camera works.
