If you have a bad security camera and you want to replace it. Few things you must take into consideration before buying a replacement CCTV camera.
- What is the voltage on your old camera AC or 12 DC
Please replace the AC camera with dual voltage or AC, if you use a 12 V DC replacement CCTV camera with 24 V it will burn.
Check the connection type if it is BNC or some other type, some time if you have a LOREX they use a DIN connection.
It is possible that the camera is not bad if the screen displays is black, could be your power supply or adapter is defective, replace that, if you have a tester use it, to find if you have any power. Some cameras even have a LED light, if it is on you have the power.
If your monitor is blue and says video loss, could be bad video connection, bad camera, fault wire.
If you camera is more than 5 years old, replace it with a new camera. A HD-SDI camera is a nice upgrade from analog camera. You will get a HD picture, please get at least a 2 MP HD-SDI camera. If it is out-door get the weatherproof vandal proof IR (Infrared camera)
