SOURCE: no picture on my tv from cctv camera

If you are getting a completely blank screen on your TV then you need to check that your TV port is working (either HDMI if youre using this or CVBS). Try another TV/Monitor with VGA. Your question is a bit vague so it would help if you provided more details;

I have a sentient cctv dvr from Maplin I can view it on my phone at home which is fine I wanted to know if I can view camera footage when I'm not at home etc. at work

Yes you can definitely view your CCTV footage on your mobile phone at your work via internet. Sentient CCTV DVR basically is a night vision camera. You must know the IP of the camera and IP Video server. Connecting your phone to CCTV camera via the protocol you can view the CCTV footage's in your phone. Night vision cameras are used for surveillance purpose. I would prefer cctv camera with ir illuminator for good image quality in the night time that will clear footage quality in my phone.
Recently many new applications have also being launched by security cameras with a view to solve problem you mentioned.

Hi.. I have Rapport 337, I got problem screen on it, the screen is blank like no power but other functions work normally. I don't have idea why the blank screen occur because two days before we...

I have also RAPPORT337 with the same problem mention above about black screen.Since i am a TV technician, I tried to open it and check and I notice that there's no voltage supply on the screen. I found the regulator 7805 has no voltage input, what I did is looking for temporary input 12v, connect to the input of 7805 and it has a screen light. I was used it normally by using 12v AC adapter, BUT if I used DC battery, again it return to black. NOW, since the manufacturer is using 3layer circuit board, this is very hard trouble for us to look the exact location of the problem.I urged the manufacturer to send us complete diagram for this unit so that we can help other people to solve this problems.Send it to my e-mail address:

I think I answer you question--when?? Take the good CCTV camera and hook it up to monitor. Then hook up the CCTV camera and turn it on. Point the working CCTV camera at the bad camera that is turn on. Now, look at the monitor which is working with your operational camera. Look at the bad camera while it on, and see how many IR LED's you can see on the bad CCTV, while it turn on. You should be able to the IR LED glowing red. If not, then there is a problem with bad CCTV IR LED's. Short wire, no power to the IR LED's. stewbison

We have a black screen but sound and a lock on the screen.


You have to setup the access in the administration section. Follow the manual from the start. You seemed to have skipped the step.

No picture on my tv from cctv camera

it is neither clear what sort of output your cctv cameras produce, nor what sort of input your dvr accepts. but, for the most part, dvrs record digital tv signals, whereas cctv cameras output analogue signals. so, even though you may be able to plug a cctv camera "straight" into a tv via a scart connector, it is unlikely that any scart connectors on a dvr have the necessary circuitry to accept such signals.

Black square covers the center of the screen-

the closed caption is probably on. look on your remote or in the tv menu for cctv and change the setting. there are at least four different types of cctv and you may have to cycle around some to find "off.

How do you remove the on screen display?

Sorry, seems like the cctv hardware does not like the type of monitor your using. How you tried a different display and does that correct the problem?
