Wv-cp234 panasonic security camera

I hook it up to the tv and had a crystal clear picture and now when i plug it in the tv it only shows objects that are really bright like a light bulb or computer screen. i think it has to do with one of the switches on the back. any suggestions?

Sounds like the iris is staying open.
You need to switch the bottom dip switch the other way

The switches are, from top to bottom:

  1. Sync selection switch (LL/INT)
  2. Electronic Light Control/Automatic Light Control selection switch (ELC/ALC)
  3. Detail level selection switch (SOFT/SHARP)
  4. Back light compensation on/off switch (BLC on/off)
  5. Lens selection switch (VIDEO/DC)

Hello! You you cannot use the camera with a vcr. This camera needs vertical drive sync impulses from a dedicated monitor. The video signal, the vertical sync and the video signal are sharing the same coax cable.

I have the Panasonic BB-HCM527A Poe Dome Ceiling Mount camera about two years. Lately, the color of the picture turns a little greenish. Can you help?

in your case, it seem that the sensor is already broken. to fix the sensor will be quiet expensive, i suggest you to replace. WV-SC384/WV-SC385 will be a good choice.

Hi I would like know how can i zoom in to get

If you are downloading the Video from a Panasonic DVR then you should have the option to zoon in from the player. This option onexists on some of the cameras.

If you are recornding analogue in 2 cif then you will loose detail in the picture when trying to aoom in. If you are recording in 4 cif then you will still loose some sdetail if you have the ability to zoom in with the Panasonic viewer software.

This software download is available right from the Panasonic DVR through the user GUI

Panasonic wvl204 camera, how do i hook up the power supply?

You will first need to have a 24v ac power supply. There should be 2 screw terminals on the back for power. Wire your power supply one leg to each terminal. Polarity will not matter.

Hi, yes, you  can hook this camera up to a VCR. You need a BNC to RCA adaptor and a RCA cable. You can purchase these items at Radio Shack. Just connect the VIDEO OUT, which is a BNC connector to your yellow VIDEO IN RCA jack on the VCR. If you dont see video, then you might have to switch the 1st dip switch to enable the iris on the lens to open and let light through. Here is the manual:

Are you getting anything from the camera at all? Put a meter at the camera end and make sure your getting 24 volts at the cam. If you don't have 24 volts at the camera, check the fuse for your power supply, you may have accidentally crossed your wires.

Used camera

cant say any thing about that. if the camera is not repaired, working condition, not very old, giving few months warranty, giving good price, etc. then i think you can buy otherwise i dont think so.

Viewing software

The WV-NP244 camera requires an ActiveX Plugin. Microsoft Internet Explorer for Mac does NOT properly support ActiveX.

The specs for the WV-NP244 state that you must use a Windows PC with Internet Explorer.

You may want to try Boot Camp, or other dual boot/Virtual software emulation software to be able to run Microsoft Windows.
