Sony EVI-D70 + Sony Anycast switcher = Problems?

I am hoping someone here has some insight into some issues that have been plaguing me for a bit now. I have been using Sony Anycasts and four or five Sony EVI-D70's in several mobile kits that we ship all over the world for mobile video productions. The Cameras and Anycasts are always packed carefully away in foam padded road cases for transport, the cases may end up being banged up **** what's inside is always well protected. But over the past year we have seen issues developing with the cameras and I am wondering if it could be related to the anycast or something else and more importantly if anyone has a way of fixing it.
It starts out like this, the anycast and the hard drives are set up but the anycast isnt turned on. The cameras are then set up and connected via visca and s video. and then the anycast is turned on. The cameras are then plugged in one at a time. Sometimes one or more cameras will go into standby mode. Repeating the turning on/plugging on process might fix some of the cameras but some times it doesnt, and no matter what I do the cameras stay in standby mode. We bring the cameras back to our office and try connecting them to a DV deck and using he remote control and again sometimes the cameras will work and sometimes they wont. When we take them to the shop to be repaired sometimes we're told that there isnt anything wrong with them.
Has anyone else encountered this problem? Does anyone have an idea of what it could be? Does anyone have an idea of how I cant, when on the road, diagnose if this is a real problem or not. And lastly and more importantly is there anyway I can fix this problem when on the road. Some sort or reset ( I have often tried the Shift-0 that is supposed to reinitialize the cameras to no avail)

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Had the same problem myself - check the connections at the back of the remote control itself. I recrimped and after cold rebooting everthing, seems to work fine now. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Hello, I have a Sony EVI-D100

Visca cable is only for camera control, it does not transmit video signal. You will need a USB video capture device and a s-video or composite video cable. Make sure the device you choose has the drivers for your version of Windows.

SONY EVI-D100 constant blur which requires power off/power on

Normal 0 Probably has corrupt driver.
Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

D70 USB setting issue

Users of Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Mac OS 9.x may experience problems trying to download images from the Nikon D70 using Nikon View. Initial shipments of the D70 have the USB option in the "Set up" menu set to PTP - Picture Transfer Protocol. PTP is only compatible for downloading images with Windows XP and Mac OS X. To solve this issue please set the USB menu option to Mass Storage and then connect the camera to the computer. The D70's card will then mount like a removable disk and Nikon View will be able to transfer images
