    We have switched monitors with no luck. We have also switched computers and vision boards with no luck.

    Changing the shutter speed seems to be doing the trick. I appreciate your time and fast response to my problem.

Hi there,

Looks like you have already tried swapping cameras and cables. If you have individual monitor, have you tried swapping as well? Also, if you are connected to an image DSP or junction box, please try to change other slot of the camera that has fading image.

    Hi, Please try also to swap power supplies. Another to try is, to change the shutter speed and change the integration from FIELD to FRAME.

    Hi Jon,

    Another thing to try, please change the angle of the camera to other view and see if image still fading. You might be capturing a view with direct agle with sunlight causing your image to be faded.

I have a Swann security system day/night vision cameras and the night vision has gone out on 2 of them and the system is less than a year old? Can any one help. Can these be fixed?

Check the power supply (usually 12VDC) and its connections. Lack of power for to LED's will cause the night vision feature to cease to function.

My grandfather has a Hitachi 50ux58b and is having double vision or shadowing -- whatever it's called and redness color fading-like. Was told it was a convergence IC that needs replaced -- uncle looked...

try not to do repair yourself. the tv holds high voltage even when unplugged. you could KILL yourself. If red is fading the convergence ic will not help. you need to replace all the guns. red, blue, and green. usually each tube or gun is around 300 dollars each.

Is there a night vision part to enhance vision for this camera?

Generaly most night vision cameras are of the infrared kind where you need infrared lights of typically infrared LEDs.If you can get more infrared leds towards your objects will be better.Or you can buy infrared lamps with independent power and similar to the ones you place on your front yard.I've tried it and it works.

Panasonic NV-GS35

The problem will disappear resetting the camera settings from menu, or removing camera battery for five minutes.

If the problem does not disappear, then the camera is faulty.

Iv just bough a 4gb SD card for my for my hitachi DZ-BX35E. When i try to format it though it said card error and doesnt complete the formatting. So i need some help please.

I'm not really familiar w/ your Video Camera. But you 4gb SD card can take about 24,000 still pictures. From what I understand, the SD card is only for take still pictures and not videos. The Video Camera is designed to use the Digital Video discs for videos. 4Gb might be too big for the machine to handle. Hope this helps but really I'm not sure. Check out this website which talks a lot about the Hitachi. A lot of techie stuff too you can use.

Some hard drives will only work as a single device when jumper-ed as "stand-alone", try finding this option or alternatively, remove the jump altogether and try again.
