Question about Toshiba IK64DNA IR Day/Night Camera

1 Answer

I have two ir security cameras. When it gets dark enough to require the ir to kick in, it does and then tries to go back to "day" (color) mode. It then recognizes that there is not enough light and the ir's kick in..... over and over all night long. Sometimes it will stay on for 30 sec other times it happens every few seconds. Any suggestions? A power issue?

You don't mention if both cameras are malfunctioning. If so, yes it is a power problem. Each camera needs additional amperage when it switches from day to night mode. The power source is probably fine during daytime hours but can't supply the demand when the ir's kick in at night. If your power is being supplied by plug in transformers then purchase a new one with the same voltage rating (most are 24VAC) but a higher Volt/Amp rating (amperage or current). If one transformer supplies both units then purchase another identical transformer and power each camera separately. If using a power supply (transformer and power supply board) you are most likely running your cameras at 24VDC. Again, purchase another power supply with the same volltage but a larger continuous amp output. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Why is my Lorex mini color weatherproof security camera only working in black and white d not showing color ?


Make sure it is not in a really shaded area. If the camera does not see enough light, it will stay in black and white mode. If that is not the issue, you might want to contact Lorex directly with the Camera model number.

The camera still works but when its dark in the room nothing shows on the monitor. If we turn the light on it works. It seems like the night vision feature is broken. I covered what looked like the light...


  1. It should go to automatic night vision. If this feature is not working then the answer to will a flashlight work the answer is not very well. The light will have to be on the child and a flashlight does not have much light behind it. Perhaps if you put a small lamp on a dresser that shines on the area the child is, this may work enough to keep an eye on him/her. A flashlight not so much. Hope this helps.

Oops, it looks like you have a couple of annoying problems with your Kodak camera.

Is your camera still in warranty by where you bought it (30 days) or the manufacturer (1 year)?

CAMERA GOES TO BLACK & WHITE A HOUR AFTER RESETTING POWER ON IT A


The SSC-CD73V and SSC-CD73VT cameras
offer a “Day/Night” function to provide
optimized sensitivity in both day and night
shooting scenarios. As the scene illumination
reduces and the acquired image darkens, the
infrared cut filter is automatically removed and
the camera switches to B/W mode, requiring
only a minimum illumination of 0.2 lx.
Incorporating an optimized lens for the
“Day/Night” function, the camera can produce a
clear and crisp image under normal illumination
or when used with near IR illuminators. In
addition, “Day/Night” modes can be
automatically switched, or manually initiated on
demand through an external control signal.

Does the W1 have infrared abilities?


The Sonys with Nightshot are best at IR, IMHO. The W1 does not have this feature. I imagine it could take IR pics in Manual mode, but the exposures would have to be so long that picture quality would suffer to an unacceptable degree, IMO. The V1 has nightshot, and the price on them has come way down since the V3 was introduced. If you want to get into IR, I suggest a V1.
