NEED TO GET YOUR ?SECURITY CAMERA REPAIR
When we talk about security camera, we mean cameras like CCTV. Every person would want to protect his or her property. It is therefore important to use the latest security systems and technology to protect your property. One can have a peace of mind when he or she designs and installs security cameras and video surveillance system properly. There are many problems which may affect the security camera but it is very hard to understand the problems that occur with your CCTV or affect your CCTV. You are supposed to verify your camera power and connection. Sometimes the network can be down leading to disconnection of the system. This is a simple problem but it is very difficult to recognize. Presence of LED indicators which are located in internet protocol cameras are used for transmitting data across the network which might be hidden inside the camera might not light up. If this occurs, you should check to see if the camera is plugged into the wall or powered externally. Your camera can either be powered with electricity or battery for they both perform the same function but I advise you to use electricity than battery. Make sure you discover and ping the camera. When we talk discovering the camera, we mean finding out the Ip address or your camera simply by checking your cameras directory. You will, therefore, ping your camera successfully after finding your address. Pinging your camera will require use of a laptop or smartphone to test the strength of the connection. The word ‘cmd’ is typed into windows search engine which should open a Dos command prompt in return. You will therefore be required or asked to type the word ‘ping’ and your Ip address immediately when the Dos command prompt opens up. ‘Request time out’ or ‘Destination Host Unreachable’ appears on the screen after you have followed this procedure keenly and smoothly and you will therefore be good enough to go. Then keenly compare or check to find out if the device you are using is on the same network as your camera. Attempt to connect using your browser if at all you do not see the camera on the network. Make sure you do not forget your username or password. You are advised to refer to the manual if you ping the camera but unfortunately fails to connect because the possibility of you typing the wrong password might be very high. Confirm whether the Address Resolution Protocol tablets are fine. They are located on the outside part of the camera. Check to make sure there is no IP conflict. This applies in cases where a person has more than one camera for you have to make sure each camera for you have to make sure each camera has it a different Ip address for this can easily stop you from accessing one or even all cameras.
Connect your camera to VMS and access the camera’s web page for this can help you confirm it your camera is up to date. This is the simplest way of upgrading your firmware. Make sure you also reboot your camera time and again. This can be done by turning off the system for ten to twenty seconds and re-put your settings again. Straighten all the cables and makes sure they are firm and intact. Loose cables and knots on the cable may be root problem on your camera. It is also important to factory reset your camera. This can be a dangerous thing to do because it may lead to lose of all your history and may troubleshoot any issues. Pushing a paperclip into the pinholes reset button which is located at the back of the camera is the easiest way of factory resettingyour camera.
Make sure you call a manufacturer or remote monitoring provide for support once in a while. You can seek help from an experienced person or an expert who can guide you on every step of the way if at all you are unsure of what you are doing. This can make you have conference in your camera. That it works properly. Did you know that there are various ways of repairing security cameras? Some of the ways of repairing the security cameras are as follows: Replace the Infrared LED Board. This is not terribly complicated for it is easiest to access compared to all internal components of the whole camera. First of all, determine and remove the portion of the camera body that needs to come off or the one that is damaged for you to access the IR board. Detach the IR board from the rest of the housing.
Remove the screws that secure the IR board to the camera body and all the remaining “guts” inside the camera. You can be surprised to find between two and seven retained screws. After adjusting the screws, you will be able to pull the board away from the remaining components. Tis will not affect the black or red colored power cable for it will still be attached to a white colored socket at the back of the IR board as you pull from the base of the connector. You will therefore be free to dispose off all the damaged board and fix in the new one in a careful manner. You can also replace the lens and adjustable type lens can be replaced. In most cases, your IR board will need to be removed entirely for thisis the only thing in your way when it comes to fixed lenses. Make the single set screw loose and thread the lens right off its mount.
The manually adjustable lenses are a bit complicated if this is your first video. Manually adjustable lenses which have gear “sleeves” that tighten down around the zoom and focus portion of the lens. This works with a set of gears that are connected to your camera’s external adjustment knobs. The sleeves are supposed to be removed and placed on your new lens if at all you are replacing a lens with this type of configuration. If you get this step right, your camera will no longer be able to be adjusted if there is no proper gear alignment. Manually adjustable lens which do not contain external adjustment knobs are adjusted simply by turning the lens itself using small set screws which can be removed easily in the same manner as the fixed lens. Presence of a foam ring seated around your lens might be evident and this might affect your camera, so make sure you have put this foam ring back into its proper place.
When replacing the CCD or CMOS image sensor, an image sensor is enough to locate in a security camera. It is attached to your lens directly and will always contain a square or rectangular piece of glass directly in the center of the board If it goes without saying then it will be time to remove your lens and this will obviously mean you are supposed to remove yor IR board again a well. You will either need to detach your image sensor from the body of the camera if it contains one after other components have been removed. Any cable evident will therefore need to be detached from the image sensor at this time. Replacing you power board is also very important and should therefore be keen when doing it. It is usually located in a sort of “caboose” fashion at the back of the camera. When this becomes easy, then it will time to pull out of all the internal pieces of the camera at once after disconnecting them from the cables coming from the pigtail. If this exposes the board at the rear of the assembly making it very easy to disconnect and swap with your replacement, the you will be good to go. The problem of internal components not to be connected together of failing to be connected together is a very common problem for we say man is to error and therefore no one is perfect. Incase this failure occurs, then you will need to remove every component between you and the power board. You will therefore need to take note of which cables are connected to where on these boards andthe way they are configured on the pins. Take note that the above information or procedure can be harmful to your camera if it is not done in a proper manner. You are therefore advised to only try it if you are confident in your ability to fix it properly. And if at all you can’t do this, then look for an export or more experienced person to guide you or fix it for you.
Did you know that a system which was designed properly and installed can experience a failure also? This is a very minor problem for it can be caused by simply age for it might be too old.

This happens if in any case the original DVR was not set up properly. Hard drive Failure is a serious problem for it leads to video recording failure.

An added advantage of this is that when we repair a system which has a faulty hard drive, it definitely increases your recording time making your system more strong, efficient and also more usable and you will definitely like the outcome.
Sometimes you can experience software problems which force your DVR to shut down. The corrupt software can make remote viewing impossible, destroy your video database and might also cause the system to crash and become inoperable. This type of damage can also be fixed but it becomes easier if the customer has the original disc. Some new features become activated when we update software to the newest version. This makes the security camera system more useful and also very easy to use. Did you know that you can also experience the problem of dead cameras? Dead cameras make the security camera screen to turn blue in color and this therefore leads to a very bad video signal which appears snow-like in nature. On this case, we have to replace the camera or we can trace wires to identify potential factors which are causing interference. We can, therefore, install baluns, ground loop isolators or other video devices to bring the video back up to standards. Confirm the target of the camera, lighting conditions and the viewing angle and capabilities of the DVR to select the right camera for what particular job incase of such a problem occurrence.
In most cases, the replaced camera has a much higher resolution than the original camera. This makes the images clearer, clean and also more readable video than the previous one before replacement. We can also experience the problem of Dead recorders. This forces the DVR not burn on. On this case, a repair might cause much more than a brand-new machine of higher quality. These are electronic computer-based devices and they are therefore meant to get damaged and be replaced for they cannot last forever.
