I have a DCS-6620 that is about a year old. Lately I find that the camera locks up and refuses to move although it continues to otherwise function. I can not move the camera, zoom or focus the camera remotely. This usually happens on a windy day when the camera gets blown around a bit. I have it outdoors in the DCS-70 outdoor enclosure. Sometimes I can get it to reset itself by going into the web configuration menu under tools/default and selecting the button to recalibrate at the bottom. Even if it does not work immediately, the camera usually self corrects by the next day and the problem repeats itsself. The camers is remorte so it is difficult to try to do a physical reset. It would appear that the camera is loosing its location registration information. Any thoughts?

Re: DCS-6620 locks up and will not Pan and Tilt
From wat ya say it seems to me that you are loosing ya signal sometimes? perhaps a "Better" antenna on the Base unit may help, one with a "High Gain" Also perhaps ya need to check and clean any connections etc. Hope that helps.

I have 7 of these that need service for one reason or another. They began to fail shortly after the warranty ran out, and have recently begun to fail much more quickly.
Next time, before I buy 62 cameras, I'll make sure I'm dealing with a company who services their product...D-Link tells me they simply don't and that these are $900 DISPOSABLE units.
Please let me know, too, if you can fix these (various problems depending on camera include include motors not working, no image produced, etc)...I can send them wherever they need to go.
