Connection problems with mobile telephone applications or systems will always hinder remote access, causing much disturbance to the camera services. If your outdoor foscam G4 security camera also has connection errors, you need to inform the foscam support directly.
The foscam support provides support to all sorts of technical problems, so there's nothing to worry about because we are here to solve it. Before contacting them for professional help, please follow the following steps:
? You need to look for your internet connection; it should be a wired or wireless Wi-Fi connection and also a high-speed network. ?
? You should also keep your camera closer to Wi-Fi, so that the network can operate easily.
? Once you do this, your camera must also ensure that every training for the camera to run on your mobile phone or system is activated.
? Don't forget to perform a fast mobile and camera power cycle to make sure that your end is no problem.
If these guides do not work, you can contact them directly on their technical support number and they will provide you with immediate repairs.

Connect an external display to the computer. If the lines and distortion shows up on the external display its the video card, which is attached to the logic board. So, the whole logic board will need to be replaced.
If the lines and distortion don't show up on the external display the issue is the LCD module, which will need to be replaced.

Check your pins at the connector.  I had a problem like that before and it was a student who unplugged the cable and tried to reconnect but bent 2 pins which shorted out the computer and monitor.  If that isn't noticable try connecting the monitor to another computer or laptop and if it still does the shorting issue then its in the monitor cable or board on the monitor.

Mac External Connection

Easy, FireWire.
Connect the 2 with a firewire cable. If reading off the laptop, for example, reboot it & hold the T key down while it boots up. A large firewire symbol shows on the screen indicating FireWire Target Mode. The laptop should be showing up as a firewire drive on the other Mac.
