U have used Qsee, Swann and Lorex. I have a PTZ that has worked on several systems. There is a set-up for the actual PTZ camera which you appear to be aware of. The App or program you are using has a set up for a PTZ along with on screen controls for it in the program. If the DVR you are using is not PTZ ready there is your answer. Should have a 2 wire acceptors one negative one positive.
The movement you are seeing initially, are the PTZ powering up and self testing. What brand DVR are you using, and is is compatible with your PTZ camera?? LOL Swann Tech Service said my Lorex PTZ wouldn't work with my new hi-res system. Well it does...
I will try to look for your reply to continue to troubleshoot for you.

Reset the power to the camera and test first. If it worked before you may have a wiring fault... or if it is new or someone tampered with it, the baud rate settings or protocol setting might have changed.
If the problem is not hardware related than its likely your missing a software update. You can find the software updates on Pelco's website or trouble shoot with fellow techies & tech support at www.pelco.com/community - doubt your still going at it after a year but good information never hurt :)

That is not coming from the camera...They don't put anything
like that out. Check the OSD settings of the device the video is going into. If
there is On Screen Display setting with in the device (DVR, MUX, Matrix Switch,
ECT)....if that doesn’t work then check the monitor menu to see if its a
display feature you can turn off...good luck and let me know if this helps just
remember the pelco camera will not push any graphic out except in the case of a
PTZ where you will see the Protocol information text...
