The following solutions may be of assistance
Problem -
Can’t take Still Photo or Video Recording
Answer -
Check that the Micro TF Memory Card has enough space, or is locked
Problem -
Automatically stop when recording
Answer -
Use the compatible high-speed Micro TF Memory Card with SDHC
because of big HD video data, the high-speed Micro TF Memory Card
should be Class 10 we only recommend Class 10 = C10
Problem -
A “files error” message appears when Still Photo or Video replay
Answer -
Uncompleted files because of Micro TF Memory Card storage error,
please use Formatting function to format your Micro TF Memory Card.
Please note that when you Format your Micro TF Memory Card
you lose all your recordings, so regularly “back up” / copy your
wanted files to your computer!!!
Problem -
Unclear video
Answer –
Check to see if there is any dirt or fingerprints on the Lens or Micro TF
Memory Card, and clean with fresh tissue paper to clean the camera
lens and Micro Memory Card
Problem -
Black image when recording sky or water scene
Answer -
Scenes with big contrast will influence the automatic exposure function
of the camera; you can adjust the “EV” in setting mode to correct this
Problem -
Colour is not perfect on a cloudy day and outdoor light
Answer -
Set the “white balance” function to Automatic
Problem Answer –
Cross stripe interference on the image
This has been caused because the wrong “light frequency”, please set
it to 50Hz (UK) or 60Hz according to the local power supply frequency.
Each country uses a different “light frequency” so this might need
changing when you cross international boundaries. UK = 50Hz
Problem Answer -
Accident / Crash or DashCam does not illuminate
Restart by short press of the R = “RESET” button after a crash.
As with all electronics (computers, printers, smart phones, Satnav’s,
etc.) they can just get confused, too hot, just need a rest.
So either switch it OFF or press the R = Reset button then after a few
minutes switch off, have a cup of tea and re start when both you and
the DashCam are rested / cool. A break is good for you and the
DashCam. The R = Reset hole is located by top corner, gently use a
cocktail stick.
19. Please Note
19.1 Computer Operating System
Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, MAC OSX 10.3.6 and above
19.2 Battery - Built in Rechargeable
All DashCam models must be continuously connected to either a 12 or 24 Volt
power supply via a 5V 1A Charger because a LCD colour screen consumes a
considerable amount of power.
That is why mobile phone / DashCam screens automatically go blank when not
being used – to save power!
A fully charged battery will only power the screen for a few minutes, it must
always be connected to a power supply via a 5V 1A Charger or Computer.
When the screen is switched Off, the DashCam is still recording, in Standby
Mode, as long as it is switched On and connected to a Power Supply. However
if the DashCam senses no movement it will go into Sleep Mode, and only
awaken when it senses an accident or rapid movement via the Motion Sensor.
19.3 “Fleet DashCam DVR Champion / Expert”
If you have purchased these for a fleet then may we suggest that one employee is
nominated as the “Fleet DVR Champion / Expert” and sets up all the DashCam DVR’
s, it will result in less frustration and more accuracy as not everyone is happy setting
up cameras, electronic gadgets, etc.
After “set up” check its working ok in the office when linked to a computer, before
installing in the vehicle.
19.4 Power Adapter Charger Plug to USB Output 5V 1amp
We uniquely supply a Triple USB Charger that powers up to 3 devices at one time
e.g. DashCam, SatNav, Smart Phone, Tablet, etc.
We also supply a cable that is long enough to reach from the Charger to the required
19.6 DashCam Micro SD Memory Card Test Tool
You can test your Micro SD card’s actual transfer rate with this free SD Memory Card
Test tool utility H2testw 1.4 – “Gold Standard in Detecting USB Counterfeit Drives”
You can also check for corrupted card as well with this utility tool.
19.7 Formatting your Micro TF Memory Card
After several weeks of daily recording it may be necessary for you to format
your Micro TF Memory Card – if that is the case please note that you will lose
all of your files, so please back up a copy on your computer first in a unique
DashCam Folder that you have created.
19.8 Accident Report Form
We uniquely supply a two part NCR set, approved by the European Insurance Union,
so that you can record all the details of an accident that your insurance company will
require, a unique service.
May we recommend that you complete the form using a black ball point pen on a
hard surface because then the writing will be on both pages and it will photocopy
Please ensure that you keep all the video files relevant to before and after the
accident in case the insurance company requests the video! Better still keep the
relevant Memory Card safe and buy another Memory Card to use until the insurance
claim is resolved. Back up copies of the files on you computer.
19.9 Reset
When your DashCam crashes / screen goes black, the phenomenon may be caused
by improper operation, a crash, etc so please switch OFF the DashCam for 5+
Minutes, or press the R = Reset button, hole by top corner, gently with a cocktail
stick. Just like you would give a computer, printer, Sky Box, phone, etc. a 5 minute
rest to sort itself out..
19.10 Windscreen camera mount
The ribbed tag of the “windscreen mount” should be on the camera lens side. Once
inserted it should not be removed, just undo the ball clamp nut or open the lever and
gently lift the suction cap tab to release the suction.
19.11 Rear windscreen
We do not recommend this unit for a rear windscreen because often the heated rear
screen heating elements are mounted on the inside surface which means the glass is
not flat for the mount to fix too, and also the heat may stop the mount adhering to the
We sell DashCams, Security Watermark Flash Digital Cameras, Accident Kits
and other items for the Fleet user, from 1 to 5000 vehicles.
We retain the right of change design and specifications without
prior notice.
