Camera LEDs glow but do not work
« on: October 29, 2012, 08:54:38 AM »
I have the Q-See QSM5265C cameras and have had two go bad in the same way.  The LEDs are glowing red, the camera is in night mode, but there's no light when I view through my monitor.  When I bench test the camera the LEDs are only working at a couple feet away.  This makes me think they are working at a fraction of the intesity.  When you look at the LEDs they seem to be glowing normal, just no light when viewing through the monitor.  Anyone know why this is happening?  Rob

I normally just help with port forwarding with them. As for the LED's you may need to get a hold of them to find out what is going on :wink:
