SOURCE: Swann Communications DVR-4-Net camera card won't run?

What spyware software did you run? Do you have the name of the software?

many spyware software available on the internet are actually viruses and malware.

Download the file combofix from the link below and run it on your system. This should remove all viruses and errors on your machine

SOURCE: My DLink 5300 G internet camera suddenly says "No Signal."

  1. Remove the Java update and roll it back to the previous state.
  2. If it does not resolve the issue, reset the camera.
  3. Lightly insert a paper clip or a similar sized object into the reset hole on the back of the camera, press lightly and then release the button.
  4. The LED on the front of the camera will begin blinking red and green.
  5. When the LED stops the blinking, the reset has complete.
  6. If the issue is still present, restore the camera to factory settings.
  7. Insert the paperclip or other tool and press on the button continuously.
  8. Wait for the LED on the front of the camera to blink red and green and hold the button through two cycles of blinking (about 5-7 seconds.)
  9. Withdraw the tool after the second cycle of the LED blinking and factory restore has been completed.
  10. Run the installation wizard. If you don't have the installation CD, go to the manufacturer's website and download the software.

SOURCE: How do I add an extra camera to this monitor?

I had the same problem, but just figured it out! The Instructions that come with the camera are wrong (obviously).
So instead of holding down just the "video on/off" button for 2 seconds...Hold down the power button AND the "video on/off button together for 2 seconds.
Then the power led will flash amber and you can hit the code button on the camera and it will work!

Can I use a Swann wireless camera with my bunker hill dvr? If so, how would I get the camera to sync to the dvr?

If they speak on the same frequency, that is a start to make them work rogether. I dont know the bunker hill dvr so if it talks on the same frequency, you have a start. Most often people hook 6p to an NVR.

How do I get my cameras online

Due to the sparsity of your question, it is hard to know where to start. Has the system been installed per the manual? Have you read the manual to learn how to connect the system to the Internet? Have you installed the software or applications to access your system?

If you can provide additional information about your problem, to include system model numbers and configuration, it will be easier to assist you.

Best bet would be to contact tech support at:

Good luck,
