Question about Summer Infant Day Night Handheld Color Video Monitor with Night Vision

2 Answers

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 indicator while the lights were on and the camera never went dark nor did it switch to night vision mode. When the lights are out if i turn a flashlight on I can see it on the camers

I just had the same issue with 2 of my cameras, no night vision. Here's what I found after a little troubleshooting, in case this helps anyone. I used the diode check option on my volt meter to check each of the IR LEDs. Most measured around 1 volt but two were bad and didn't measure anything. I took two good LEDs from my other camera and replaced the bad ones. Fixed! I plan on buying a few more IR LEDs to fix the second camera. You can view the LEDs through your digital camera or cell camera to see if they are working. Hope this helps.

    Where can you purchase the IR LEDs? How do you remove them to replace them?

    I picked some up at Radio Shack. You'll need a soldering iron and solder to remove and replace them.

  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.

Why night vision is dark


Had a similar issue. If the cameras have the night vision led lights and it's just one camera, the wire pair that supplies power to the lights may have a short, if all cameras are dark, the main power supply may be out. You can check with a voltage tester. Some cameras use three wires with a common ground, others are 4 wires. One pair for the video and one pair for power.

Hello, First, don't turn on this Night Owl NODS3 during the day...Bright lights will destroy the image intensifier tube in mill-seconds. It used on during the dark hours of the night and look at bright city lights on the poles on homes.


You have two button; one with have o/1 (on/off) then the second but would be the IR light and it will have the IR on and some time there will be another button mark A and this button is used to enhance the image.



To turn on the button--all you have to do is to push it. Only in a dark room with IR button on. and only in the dark of the night. If it doesn't work then let me know drawbridge21@q.com send me a message. GB...stewbison

I think I answer you question--when?? Take the good CCTV camera and hook it up to monitor. Then hook up the CCTV camera and turn it on. Point the working CCTV camera at the bad camera that is turn on. Now, look at the monitor which is working with your operational camera. Look at the bad camera while it on, and see how many IR LED's you can see on the bad CCTV, while it turn on. You should be able to the IR LED glowing red. If not, then there is a problem with bad CCTV IR LED's. Short wire, no power to the IR LED's. stewbison

Can not focus. The lens moves fine from one end to the other but I'm unable to see clear images with or IR while in a dark room.


Don't IR illuminator in the dark room. Turn on a small light in one of the corner; such as, a small light bulb. increase ambient light a little at a time until you can focus. You flooding the dark room with IR illumination which will reflect everywhere in there. This might take care of the fuzziness in the monocular. stewbison

Seeing that it still works with light, something on the circuit board more than likely gave out. Look online for an IR illuminator, and mount that next to the camera for night vision.

Want Night vision


It won't work in a room with no light at all. But if you have even a light from your monitor it will work better than most of the webcams. If you need a webcam for complete darkness you may have a look at Security Cameras
