guidelines do not enable you to solve the problem, contact Clinton Electronics
Technical Support at 1-800-549-6393 or 815-633-1444.
Problem
Solution
Nothing appears on
the screen.
• Check the power connection.
• Check the video signal line connection.
• Check the Brightness of Auto Iris lens.
The video image is not clear.
• Check if the lens is clean. Clean the lens
with a clean cloth or brush.
• Adjust the contrast feature of the monitor.
• Make sure that the screen is not exposed
directly to a bright light. Move the camera
if necessary.
The screen is dark.
• Adjust the contrast feature of the monitor.
• If you have an intermediate device, set the
75Ω/Hi-z properly, and check the terminals.
• Adjust the brightness level of the Auto Iris
lens.
There is a problem with
the camera operation.
The camera surface is too
hot and black stripes
appear on the screen.
