Question

I can't get the camera to show up on my TV, what do I do?

Answer

If you are using your Sentinel camera with a wireless video receiver, follow these steps:

  • Make sure your Wireless Video Receiver is connected to power and turned On.

  • Select the appropriate video input channel/mode on your TV. Usually you can select the input mode by pressing the VIDEO or INPUT button on the remote control. You might also need to change the TV to Channel 0 or 2, and then use Channel Down to change video inputs. See your TV's owner's manual if you are not sure how to change the video source.
  • Make sure your camera is connected to power and turned on. Press C1 on the remote to turn it on.
  • Check that the mode switch on the bottom of the camera is set to Transmit Enable.

  • Follow the setup instructions again, and check all of the components' connections.
  • Make sure that the ABCD switches on the bottom of the camera and wireless video receiver are set to the same letter.

If your Sentinel camera is connected directly to your TV with a video cable, follow these steps:

  • Select the appropriate video input channel/mode on your TV. Usually you can select the input mode by pressing the VIDEO or INPUT button on the remote control. You might also need to change the TV to Channel 0 or 2, and then use Channel Down to change video inputs. See your TV's owner's manual if you are not sure how to change the video source.
  • Make sure your camera is connected to power and turned on. Press C1 on the remote to turn it on.
  • Follow the setup instructions again and check all connections.
