Re: White screen

This could be a termination problem. What type of cable are you using (coax, utp, fiber, wirless) and if its coax is it an all copper center conductor with 95% copper braided shield 75 ohms? Then are you using crimp on/compression or twist on bnc's? this will make a huge difference if its utp is it passive or active....another thing to check would be the device the video is going into (if there are loops we need to check all devices) remember you never want to loop through more then 4 devices....and the end device (dvr, mux, matrix switch,ect) need to be set to terminate or 75 ohms all others set to high z or un terminated... The best check is to take a meter and go to the cameras location and check back to the head end if you are getting a good termination (depending on the distance you see see some ware between 80-95 ohms)..good luck and if you have any questions please let me know

Swann camera stays black and whie,no color

If the camera has IRs and there is not enough light it will go into black and white. Check the settings in the camera menu! If those are correct and you have good voltage it may be the camera is bad. If there is plenty of light and it is still in black and white it's a bad camera and needs to be replace

Is the camera a PAL camera instead of NTSC or the DVR is PAL and the camera NTSC? Either way, that would explain the black and white picture.

Why is my Lorex mini color weatherproof security camera only working in black and white d not showing color ?

Make sure it is not in a really shaded area. If the camera does not see enough light, it will stay in black and white mode. If that is not the issue, you might want to contact Lorex directly with the Camera model number.

I need to know the pin designations on a small home security camera i bought. It has no name only the model number (080800-24t) and uses the OV5116 camera chipset. I have pics of the camera. it is a small...

Red is Power (12VDC), Black is Common Ground, White is Audio, Yellow is Video. The camera is from a "Homeland Security Brand" Camera and Monitor set that was being sold at Walmart about 2004/2005. That's the Black and White Model. The "Night Vision" portion barely works on these and the picture isn't very clear even during the day... They're nothing like, say, the CD-33 Ball Turret Color Cameras from SuperCircuits (Which are cheaper now than the HLS Brand B&W Cameras were back in '04). I understand that it's "What you have", just letting you know what to expect so you don't put any money into a system based on these. Hope this helps.

I have a white rodgers 1F80-24 thermostat which has worked fine for years. Now all of a sudden the numbers and time on the display are all broken up making it hard to read. Any ideas on how to fix. Thanks
This is the manual for your thermostat. You probably just have bad batteries. If you pull your thermostat shell off you should see batteries in the shell or base, further, if you have a blue wire in the wires that hook to base, make sure it's connected. The unit could be bad but, they count on the batteries for display and memory.
