red & black is your power + & ground -. Yellow and black is your video and ground. you probably don't have audio if there is not another wire. If you have a shield wire around the others sometimes that is used for ground and in that case red and shield wire would usually be the power.

All wireless security motions have a 3 min delay built into them. This means that whether the alarm is set or not when the motion detector picks up motion it shuts down for 3 min and will not pick up motion. This is done to conserve battery power. So I always advise customers to arm the system and stay away from the motion for 3 min total. example: 60 sec to arm system + 2min wait time. then try to trigger motion. If this does not help and assuming batteries are good, you'll need to replace motion. Good luck. This may help

I would start by power cycling your system. Remove the battery & power. After waiting 10 minutes or so reconnect the battery and then power. Other than that you need to be a bit more specific with your issues.

Try disarming system twice to get the fire zone to reset. If that doesn't work, try to downpower the entire system, including back up battery then re-power the system with the back up battery first.

GE RANDOM VACATION TIMER GE5111N-71D also known as GE5111N

VERY straight forward setup. SET the Dial to the correct DAY of the week and TIME. This timer is PRESET at the factory and you can NOT adjust any other ON/OFF settings yourself!

"Pre-Set" mostly for evening and later evening times or hours "ON/OFF". These times CHANGE from evening to evening and again, ALL settings are made by GE! ALL ON/OFF cycles change from evening-to-evening and day-to-day.

1,250 WATTS if you connect INCANDESCENT LAMPS!

I hunted and hunted for the specs on this Timer, but found none. I finally purchased two and read the tiny manual. I set one up in the kitchen to TEST with a 50 Watt lamp and it works GREAT... I just don't know WHEN it will cycle next, but I guess that's the mission and point of these spiffy timers!

I assume you want to monitor the camera from Android, unfortunately I'm not sure this is possible because the camera you have is not an independent camera or webcam, it is intended as a add-on for GE Color or B/W wireless systems (45234, 45235, 45236.)
It looks like the camera transmits to the receiver.

You have to check the fuse inside the system . If there is any power surge happened then there is a chance for fuse become faulty. As you mentioned it would be a power side problem. first of check the fuse inside the system. Also you have to check the 16.5V transformer which provides the working voltage to the sysatem when it is line. If need any more assistance from me then you can contact me through fixya. One more thing is if can add any picture of the cotrol panel circut board then it will be very helpfull.
