    CCTV Camera No Signal

    Hi all, Have a home CCTV system, a DVR box which has 4 outside cameras linked directly to it via a power unit. One of the cameras has just suddenly lost signal. I disconnected any power sockets (i.e. TV, lights) in the room apart from the CCTV DVR and a monitor. I rebooted the DVR and the camera came back on for about 10 seconds then went off again. I can't see anything in any log files on the DVR or anything that says why the camera has gone off. I have checked the cable connection of the CCTV camera to the back of the DVR and seems fine. I'm at a bit of a loss now. I did wonder if it is simply not getting enough power, but I have had these running for 7 years no probs. Although I know things can happen anytime. Does the camera have anything I can check on it itself ? The type of cameras I have are night vision infrared camera shaped like a dome. A photo of one of the cameras is attached. How would I be able to check this camera ? Does the camera come apart from the base ? Thanks all for any feedback.

    Inspire DVR

    Have an Inspire DVR. The manual shows that the recordings can be backed up to USB drives. I have connected 4 working USB drives but when I select to check backup devices ready for copying, the DVR sees nothing. Strangely, if I connect the USB mouse which came with the product to the USB on the DVR there is no problem. I know it isn't the memory sticks because they all work when connected to a computer.

    Around £800, may push to £1000, but ideally £700-£800. Just want to make sure that if I get a cctv installer to do it, they aren't charging me well over the odds, as I haven't a clue what i'm looking for, as so much info to take in regarding camera types and specs etc.

    Hi I'm looking for a reasonably priced CCTV system for external home use, 4 cameras, ability to record, possibly infrared, night vision and also see images on smartphone when away from home. 'Reasonably priced' I admit could be a very varied figure. However, I have had a number of quotes from CCTV installers as well as people saying that good systems like this can be purchased from ebary and B&Q. Also, others have remarked that some installers will greatly inflate the price. I admit, I don't have the time, as easy as it may be to install myself. I don't want a wireless system, but would greatly appreciate what sort of price ranges I would be looking at to pay. Thanks
