Samsung B/W Observation System - Model# SSC-12

My Samsung system that was purchased in January, 2004 stopped working.  The green power light in front of the monitor blinks off and on making a click sound and the monitor (SSC-12M) screen is black.  I have 3 outside cameras (SSC-12C) hooked up.  I also have it hooked up to a time lapse vcr recorder (SSC-1280).  Is the monitor bad, or is it the cameras?  How do I find out.  I never had a problem before today.

    Same problem. Power seems to be cycling on the system which powers the cameras and monitor together. There is a faint burnt smell. The fuse looks fine. Will have to rip it apart further to see if it is something I can solder.

    Same problem experienced with my SSC-12 (i.e. will not power up and has clicking sound from the back). Have the unit into a TV repair shop to see if they can breathe some life into it. In the interim have been looking for a replacement unit (basically same size i.e. 12" due to the location where I want to place the monitor). Seems that 12" security systems with RJ-11 camera inputs are hard to find. The only other options I have found are the SMO120S and (LG) LSP-M1012E and I have yet to find a source where I can purchase either of them. If the TV repair shop does fix my monitor I will advise what was done.

    The monitor flicks on and off. Have disconnected and reconnected and within a minute it starts doing it all over. Have 4 cameras connected to it.

    I too have the same set-up with 3 cameras. Monitor screen is black and when you turn it on, green ligt flashes and makes the same beep, click noise. Purchased in 2004 as well. Cannot find owners manual and cannot even locate any information on this product on Samsung's website.

Same problem here after a close lightning strike. Fuse was good, main switch was operable. Noticed a charred spot next to a heat sink which has two diodes that appeared to be burnt. One being a zener diode, the other a simple diode. Gonna replace them and see what happens. Any suggestions?

Hi,

The blinking green power light in front of the monitor - indicates 2 possibilities:
1. no video signal received (highly unlikely - 3 cameras); or
2. most likely internal monitor problem with part(s) of its circuitry and the auto-protect/shutdown is activated, hence the powering on and shutting down (blinking green power light). The clicking sound is most probably a relay inside the monitor that switches the power on and off.

A few thoughts:
1. The cameras get their power from the monitor. So if the monitor goes bad, the cameras will also be inoperable. And the same also holds true if any of the camera develops a power problem, the monitor would react;
2. The VCR is a separate unit and gets its video INput from the monitor and would not be an issue at the moment.

Things you can try:
a. Remove all the RJ11E ("Telephone" type) camera inputs and plug them back one by one just to determine if it's a camera problem and the monitor is simply reacting; or
b. Use a different monitor of the same type of input/configuration connectors.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

We have this system at work. It will not play back the vhs tape. I've tried to press 'vcr' button on monitor and a black screen with 'no signal' flashes. Also tried just pressing play on the vcr, still nothing. I have checked connections, disconnected and reconnected. Getting alittle frustrating. Please help with any ideas. Thanks

I have replaced many since this post in 2o13...I am a Security camera G0D now with many installs and hacks... that said the SSC-12a system with 4 cameras connected to a single SSC-12m Monitor has been working 24/7 since I installed it and still works perfect. no video loss or downgrade since I installed it.
I added infrared lights to the area and picture is crisp and viewable in almost complete darkness.
I did run new wires going to the private rooms, and down the upstairs hallway and rather than spend money on expensive cables I made my own from Cat-5 network cables, 8 wire pull and added 6 wire modular adapter.
You need to reverse the pins on the other side if you decide to make your own cables.
Why they don't all use the same pin settings and allow the use of generic one cable fits all applications is beyond me..aside from the fact a 75' cable ($83.13 when initialed initial system!!!) has a large markup, I will scan/post the amount Samsung billed for the cable and shipping when I pull Manual out, I saved all docs on my installs.
Note: I did run 150' custom cables and crimped them myself. I have no video loss however Samsung said 100' would be the maximun without boosting the signal, again more money more equipment.
Take care, back in 5 years +/-

We purchased a home with 4 samsung cameras in various places around the exterior. They are all wired back to the master bedroom with what looks to be CAt-5 cable. What do I need to make this system work??...


Hi there, depend on the model of your cameras, normally if there are samsung it should say the model # ( ssc-12c,soc-c120 and so on) What look like CAT-5 are normally RJ-11 very similar to a phone connector. If your cameras are one those mentioned above you will need a monitor that support that type of connection like the ssc12m or ssc-17webm if there are black and white or the SMT-190M if there are color cameras. or a DVR with similar connection type like the SHR-1041.
Thank You,

I have a Samsung B/W Monitor, model Name SSC-12M for an observation System. Turns on for a few secomds, and then gets a straight line across and turns monitor on and off, Capasitor maybe? Worth repair ing...


The vertical Ic either has bad connections or is defective. Look for a small flat IC attached to a heat sink with about 11 pins. Try resoldering the pins first. If that fails to resolve it, replace the IC. This IC may be marked LA7837 or something similar. If you are unsure, post the marking here and I'll confirm you have the correct part.

Epson Stylus photo 810/ink jet printer


Hi Alan

I expect by now you've solved this problem - but just in case .....

The waste ink "protection" counter has exceeded its limit and needs resetting. You can do this easily by using the SSC utility - download from:

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

Install it, and double click the ssc printer icon in the bottom right corner (System Tray). Choose Configuration and set your printer type (810), then close the ssc window. Now right click the ssc icon in the sytem tray and choose Protection Counter. You should see that the current count is above the limit; then choose reset to set it to zero. Turn the printer off then back on again. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation.

Main menu problem with Samsung SSC-1280


That seems to be SAMSUNG's answer for a lot of their problems. Please to note I have read much too many of their manual. If you didn't catch that - this is the worse written manual I've seen in my 34 yrs. in electronics. My choice is to learn their language, put up with this type of garbage or write this off as a learning experience. I choose to exclude SAMSUNG from my list of considerations for any future equipment purchases.

Looking for a manual for A Samsung SSC security system


Hi,



Am not familiar with an SSC-960, there are however SVR-960 (4 versions) by Samsung.



Normally Samsung follows similar installation procedures and the differences in their model are advance features and the length of recording time. If this could be of any help, this link is a users’ manual for a 1280 hrs model. It includes installation procedures.



Alternately you can try Google for “svr 960 pdf” but when I tried it most that I can get are German language versions.



Hope this be of some help/idea.  Good luck and kind regards.
