Question about Cameras

Open Question

I have a Pelco DX4000 DVR. I am using this DVR with a surveillance camera. I want to be able to link this DVR with my laptop. To do this process is fairly simple. I have another DVR that I used the same way. I downloaded the software and was able to link it to my laptop with no problem. Now, when I tried to do the same process with this Pelco DVR, it will not connect. There at times an error box displays saying "Publisher Unknown" and won't open. Then other times it comes up the camera numbers & dates of each camera but it doesn't show any live video. If you understand what the problem is please explain it to me in simple language. I'm not a computer expert so I need this explained in a step by step manner I'll understand.

If you're plugging the camera into a port on the front of your computer try one of the ports on the back. The front ports in most cases only provide 100 milli-amps of power whereas the back ports provide the full 500 milli-amps of power. This could be the problem or it could be your USB cable. Try a different cable and see if that makes a difference. Just make sure that you aren't plugging it into a USB hub and you're connecting it directly to a port in your computer.

SOURCE: olympus 850sw- write protect and picture error

Sounds as if the memory card has corrupted data on it now. You will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup Menu - right arrow to Format- Press Ok. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect and picture error messages and the card can be used again.

SOURCE: Computer not recognizing my camera when connected

Most of the issues can be solved by either reinstalling the software or by disconnecting and reconnecting the device.
In this case we can close in on three solutions
1) The USB drive in the system is not functioning. Try connecting any other USB devices to the same USB port and check whether it works or not. If the other device works well then it could be a problem with the data cable or with the port in the camera (usually firewire)

2) The data cable used to transfer data might have become faulty.Try using another data cable if possible and still the same issue continues then try connecting another camera to the system and if the other camera gets detected then the problem must be with the camera.

3) Try connecting the same camera to another system and see whether the camera gets detected. If no, then the port in the camera is defective.

After this we can close in on which could be faulty. data cable / Computer / Camera.

Does it supports any brand of cctv cameras or will there be any incompatibility with same brand..


It support all brand of CCTV.
for PTZ CCTV, It has to have the Pelco protocol so the WJ-HD716 can control the camera.
in that case, the connection will use the RS485.

If all of the 6 DVRs are on the same location (on the same network), and you want to remotely connect (VPN) to that location, you can Endura Enable the DVRs and then VPN to the Primary DVR. (Note that you need to be Endura Certified to use the Endura Enabled feature).
If they're all geographically distributed, you can only VPN into a single unite at a time..

You need to install the Video drivers and enable the "Overlay" I suspect, you have not got the latest Video drivers for your card, go to the cards web site, ATI, NVIDIA etc, and download entire package and install.

My Pelco Spectra 2 Camera gets power, but has no video.


The system fan is what you should be looking at. It is overheating and in turn shuts off the video output.

This DVR dose not support that...You can either see one camera full screen or see all 4 in a quad screen depending on how many cameras you have and how may of them are enabled.
If the Preview feature in the Camera menu is On, you can view live video on the monitor.
Video is displayed full-screen only if one camera is turned on. If more than one camera is
turned on, video is shown in a quad view. Sorry but its not going to be able to do what you are looking for...Pelco didn’t put that feature in their small DVR until the DX4000 series......Good Luck and let me know if this helps,
