Read this manual carefully before use.
1)To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not open the machine and
maintain by yourself, please consult a professional service person.
2)To prevent fire or shock hazard, use the power after safety
certification, the input voltage, current, voltage polarity and
operating temperature must meet the requirements of this camera.
3)Please note the operating temperature and environmental
requirements of the camera, avoid too low or too high temperature.
General operating temperature range of -10??+50?(Fahrenheit
temperature is 14??122?). Avoid flooding and rain, minimize dust
and moisture erosion, otherwise camera would be damaged.
4)Cameras in use should avoid direct sunlight, glare, otherwise the
sensor will be damaged.

too long, otherwise the increase of line loss will lead to the
inadequate magnitude of the operating voltage of the camera or
video signal Inadequate.
7)In order to prevent the camera from falling, please do not place
the camera on an unstable bracket, base or other unstable objects.
Otherwise it will lead to injury, at the same time, the camera will be
8)The camera cannot be placed near the radiator or heating resistor.

SPECIAL-LENS ADJUST No use TBK Camera 4 in 1 21 www.tbkvision.com Appendix: FAQ Q: No picture with power on A1: It may result for a wrong HD video signal selection, DVR and camera must have the same HD video technology. Different HD video technologies are incompatible between them. Go to 5.4.2 How to select HD video output in order to select the right HD technology. A2: It may result from abnormal power supply. Please check if the power supply voltage and its polarity are correct. Besides, please confirm if wires connection and monitors are normal. Q: Unclear image output A: It is caused by incomplete adjustment of the lens back focus. Set focus from joystick attached on the camera wire. If not, please check if the lens is in good condition, or the lens surface and sensor surface exits foreign objects. If exits, it can be wiped by degreasing cotton swab or lens paper. Q: Horizontal interference fringes on image A: This phenomenon is generally caused by too strong hum bar of power supply, which needs to be filtered out. It may also be related to the used monitor or peripheral devices. Q: Constantly change of the ground color of image TBK Camera 4 in 1 22 www.tbkvision.com A: This phenomenon is caused by color scrolling, which is mainly due to alternating electromagnetic field of fluorescent lamp, and the inherent phenomenon of camera. It can be weakened with two methods: one is to reduce the usage of fluorescent lamp. The other is to enlarge the distance with the camera. www.tbkvision.com
