Troubleshooting Your Wireless Outdoor Camera
Poor Picture:
Connecting the Camera Power Supply
Camera Power Adaptor (12V)
Realign antennas until image quality improves, slightly adjust the position of the Camera or
Receiver. Change the location of the Camera, or use a different height or angle to see if the
image improves. In some cases interference may be caused by another device on a similar
frequency to the channel you are using.
Lines only - no clear picture:
Check to confirm there is no microwave oven or other 2.4GHz equipment-operating close by
i.e.; Cordless Telephones, Wireless Baby Monitors, Wireless LAN equipment etc. Make sure
the Receiver is on the correct channel.
Picture ghosting or interference:
Some home appliances such as Wireless LANs, 2.4GHz portable telephones and
Microwave ovens operate on or near the 2.4GHz frequency. If you receive interference from
such an appliance, try moving the Camera or Receiver to location further away from the
appliance or in the event of interference from a Wireless LAN device, try changing the
Wireless LAN to a different channel to improve the signal quality.

No picture:
Check the receiver to confirm it is turned ON and make sure the A/V connection of the
Receiver is not plugged into the Audio Out socket. Make sure the Receiver is on the correct
channel. Check to ensure the camera is plugged in and has power. Check that the channel
on the receiver is the set to Channel x.
Red haze over picture:
In some cases where the sun shines into the front of the camera a faint red glow can be
seen. Move the camera to a shaded location, or fit a hood to stop sunlight entering the
camera lens directly.

connector with switches inside,
note the numbers 1 &

Changing these switch settings changes the frequency that

the camera transmits on. Once you have set the channel on
the camera, select the same channel on your DVR. If you
experience interference try different channels. Make sure
multiple cameras are set to different
frequencies so you can use them in the same area with the
same receiver

Changing the Wireless Camera Channel on Your DVR
If the camera is looking from a dark area towards a light area in some cases the automatic
exposure can find it difficult to balance the image correctly. Change the location of the
camera so that the point of greatest interest has the largest area of the image. (If you want
to see the bright area, move the camera so that almost the entire screen shows this area. If
you want to see the darker area, move the camera so that most of the image shows this
area.
To change wireless channels on your DVR, push the SET button on the front casing. The
light indicates the current wireless channel i.e. CH1, CH2, CH3, CH4. Push the display
button (DISP) to change views between your wired and wireless cameras.

(DISP) to switch between wired and wireless camera mode.
Achieving the best wireless signal
Depending on local conditions wireless signals may vary. A clear line of sight from the DVR

may impact the quality of an image. If too much interference occurs on any channel,
move the camera or DVR to another location or change camera channels.
