    brightness problem on sunba507-20xb camera, 5 days old and cant see anything help!!!

    after many years of problems with different brands of ip cams, i decided it was enough, bought a fi9828p foscam from ebay 2 months ago , went bad , got bridged, finally paypal refunded me the money on that dam bricked cam, bought a http://www.sunba.net/507-20xb-audio-...-houseing.html the specs looked amazing the seller said was the best for the price and reliable,,well it arrived and was working fine, but 5 days latter this happened,well..just the night before i noticed something was weird, the screen showed a lot of screen noise and was kind of pixelated and the colors didnt look the same, , did not think anything of it ,,,then his morning when i went to look at the camera something was wrong,,,, aparently the cam got stuck on nightmode and wont switch even with a factory reset, maybe a problem with the lens, iris , i dont know but it happened after a raining day, any advice??during the day as the sun comes up the brightness blinds the screen and cant see allmost anything, i love this forum thanks to every one that help me before,, i got to fix my last shitty cam, but this one is 5 days old, thanks every one..,

    +1, talk about not learning your lesson the first time. Invest in a decent, proven and reliable one from Dahua or buy local with a warranty. It's not the much more!

    Edit: this was in response to shojus whose posts have been removed.
    Says the guy whos camera has lasted a whole month...yay....Sunba and other unknown brands should be avoided if you are looking for a reliable camera and dont want to tinker with it every weekend.

    You have 2 Sunba cameras that have worked for a few months. With that kind of extensive testing we should all stop recommending brands that have worked for years and recommend Sunba immediately.

    The amount of problems with Sunba PTZ cameras on here is crazy. Factor in how many issues with Dahua and the fact they outsell Sunba probably thousands to one and you can see that Sunba simply isn't reliable. I have local no-brand PTZ cameras, Huisun and Dahua. Not one had any trouble like this that requires fixing in the first week.

    Calling all of us wrong to justify your purchase doesn't change the fact that spending a little more on Dahua PTZ is a better idea. These aren't even that cheap. £200 in the UK + Import Duty, tax and Parcelforce admin fee.

    The simply fact is that a Sunba wasn't a suitable purchase for OP who had issues with a cheap Foscam. The old proverb "buy cheap, buy twice" fits perfectly here.

    If you cant handle this forum LEAVE and dont let the door hit you on the way out. Stop acting like an ASSHOLE. This is not an internet safe space. I will do as I please, I dont think you understand that you are not in control here. Stop making demands. I owe you nothing. Act like an ass again and you will be banned.

    Well what do you expect? He is an administrator here, so he can do and say "as he pleases" and there is nothing you can do about it, so you can just hang around and ignore his snarky remarks or leave this community, fighting it is a lost cause.

    The remarks were completely justified in response to his passive aggressive post here and in other threads. If you dont like it you know where the door is.

    I don't know maybe it was justified for this member, but you are well known with the hostile attitude to members that buy non Hikivison camera and either recommends them or seek help here and then threaten to ban them if they talk back at you.






    Perhaps this user was under wrong impression this forum is to talk about passion for ANY IP camera and seek help or recommendation, but if this is not the case then you should consider renaming this forum to Hikvision only discussion and that will save you all the trouble with posting these remarks.

    You are misinformed. I recommend dahua all the time as well. I am not hostile to other brands. I am not hostile to users until they act like assholes. I have even recommended the shitty Huisun cameras you peddle on this forum before they all started failing. I have never told you not to post. However I will warn users to stay away from crap brands. Again if you dont like it, leave. This forum was STARTED because other forums would ban users who posted negative comments about crap cameras such as foscam. Dont tell me how to run the forum. If you dont like it leave.

    haha, that makes sense now so this is a retaliation forum to other forum. Anyway, the point is the user asked for help and instead of trying to help user he got "you bought junk" reply which is probably why the whole back and forth started. Like I said why not make this Hikvision/Dahua only forum? You are an admin, you can make it happen and ban anyone trying to talk about anything other then those two brands. Will make your life much easier. Imagine how much time it will save you because you will not have to think and post "you bought junk" replies. Otherwise, until this happens people will continue come here and talk about other "junk".

    You completely misunderstood. Its not about retaliation, its about properly informing the public.
    Again you misunderstand, its not a dahua/hikvision forum. However, if you are going to recommend an unproven no brand name camera to end users then I will remind them that its junk until proven otherwise. Please I dont need your advice on how to make MY life easier. If you dont like it leave.

    Re: brightness problem on sunba507-20xb camera, 5 days old and cant see anything hel

    To quote the OP:
    and he was told he made the same mistake yet again, that is being helpfull.. trying to convince him to return it while he still can, if he still can is what they were trying to do.. why bother troubleshooting a piece of crap that should be sent right back to the seller.

    he paid dahua PTZ prices for a pice of junk, he will be much happier if he manages to fix this error he made trusting sales people and there spec sheets.

    "Properly informing the public" by repling "this is junk" in threads seeking for help? Not really my definition of information the public, but "do as you please", your forum and your rules.
