Help with wires
TRY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
On a few cameras I have had apart the black wire is negative and common ground, the red is positive, the yellow is video, the blue wire could be your infra red leds the white maybe audio
If your wires have just been cut then why can't you re-connect each wire matching colour for colour making sure you insulate them from each other?
I am not sure what voltage your camera works off? but some work from 5 volts and others 12 volts - 24 volts, older cameras may even work from mains voltage, so be very careful with what you are doing always switch off electric supply before making any connections.
(make sure your power supply is still ok after having wires cut it may of blown a fuse!)
Your best bet is to phone or email the manufacturer for advice.
The last resort take the camera apart and trace where the wires go to, then make a note and connect accordingly.
This may help to you to get it apart?
If you undo the screws on the back cover and loosen off the cable gland you may find that the camera will come apart and the insides will slide out there is usually a rubber seal around the joint of the back plate and main housing.
Once you have removed screws and loosened cable gland just gently prize apart.
If you can get it apart I would recommend you replace the cable with same type and keep connections inside the camera where they will remain waterproof!
I hope this is of some help to you
Best of luck!
