Hello community, I have a VTO1510CH which I want to recover ... I am trying to establish the connection and I only receive strange characters, could you give me a hand with this? I leave a capture of my configurations and what I get in addition to the connections

Dear all:

I have a question - I am trying to fix a VTO2000A-C, which cannot be found in VDPConfig. However the VTO boots up (lights go on) and also reacts on pressing the ring with replies (no device found, etc.).
So I was trying to flash via UART.

I bought an USB to TTL stick and it looks installed properly (Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge on COM3). However, I did not get any result in NCOM booting up the VTO (it simply gives a blank screen). And I tried all pins of VTO with RX or TX at the stick.
Then I figured that something might be wrong with the stick, so I connected RX and TX of the stick and started NCOM (and afterwards Putty), but I do not see an Echo when I write in the field, which means I write "echo", but I do not see a second "echo". So something to be broken with the USB stick.

Any idea what I can try to fix this?

hi! I have a 49225 PTZ that has gotten bricked/messed up....I'm trying to locate the serial connection point on the cam....has anyone connected to it? any photos or advice would be much appreciated!...I've got it open where you can see the SD card slot etc, but am not seeing
any sort of spot that would be the serial connection point.

thanks!

I'm still unsuccessful. I've tried (looking left to right) RX TX GND VCC as well as (looking right to left) VCC GND TX RX. I was able to get a continuous scrolling of gibberish but nothing in english. This continues as long as there is power. I've tried making a GND connection from the Dongle to an UART pin as well as from the dongle to a ground connection on the camera. My camera has a 4 pin micro molex - I wish there was some way to identify the pins so I would at least know that I am toying with correct pins.
Hi,

how did you solve your problem ?
I im in the same case.

Thank's in advance
Bye

Hi. Checking in again. Has anybody connected and unbricked a 49225 PTZ? I’m still trying to locate where the pins are to connect with my serial cable

Hi,

I am new here.
i have bricked my camera and i am trying to bring it back to live.
My camera its not a Dahua but i think someone can help me. My camera its a Reolink.
I have try to update it with wrong firmware. Now i cannot access the camera from the app or from the lan cable. the stranger is the camera its still working, i can see in the sd card new video records when i move my hand over the camera lens.
i have connect over the serial port and i can see how the linux boot and loading. i make a screenshot of the uboot.
uboot.jpg

The firmware file from reolink its a .pak file, there inside there a lot of files and folders and i dont know how to start to flash again the firmware.
I will appreciate if someone can guide me.

Hi , I have a XVR5116HE conected to console but I can´t flash the firmware, because I don´t have the update.img file. instead I have the Customer_XVR5x16_Internal_13Languages_P_V3.218.9996001.0.R.180820.bin File. Can anyone help me on how to choose that file for the upgrade ?
Thanks in advance

@mastec if you open the .bin7 file with 7zip you should be able to extract it's contents and inside there should be the .img files you need (there are many) do you also have the SFTP setup to be able to upload the files?

@nikos1671 try seeing if uboot has a "help" variation activated, your looking for an alias command such as "run dr" that will start the transfer and updated, otherwise you could use the tftp command (if it's enabled) and see if the sf write command is the same as ours. The good news is that the enviro args show you the memory addresses of the individual partitions you'll need to flash just need to find what the command is in your version of uboot.Attach files

Note: I'm going out of town so might now have consistent answers to replying for a week or so

Hi guys,

I am trying to recover a Dahua IPCAM that seems to have some problems with the network. I have it connected via UART but cannot connect to the TFTserver. I have restored some Dahua devices in the past, so far the tools and environment should be fine.

The problem seems to be the Ethernet interface of the IPCAM.

These, and the tftp update problem, suggest that the ethernet connection is not working.
Presumably there is no link detect LED on the switch port it's connected to.

Could the RJ45 connector be corroded?
Any other things that might damage the ethernet connection?

Hi, I have IPC-HDBW4631E-ASE that suddenly stopped working. It went into boot loop. I've connected the serial port and I can see it is freezing on "Starting kernel …"
I have tried to upload different firmware:
DH_IPC-HX5X3X-Rhea_MultiLang_PN_Stream3_V2.800.0000008.0.R.190619.bin
DH_IPC-HX5X3X-Rhea_Eng_P_Stream3_V2.460.0000000.16.R.20170904.bin

DH_IPC-HX5X3X-Rhea_Eng_P_Stream3_V2.460.0000.14.R.20170720.bin
unfortunately it didn't help - still freeze at "Starting kernel"

I did the memtest ("mtest" command) and it didn't show any errors. There are no damaged components on the pcb. I've replaced 2 electrolytic caps. Checked all the capacitors for shorts. Everything looks good.

What else should I check/try?

Edit:
I have found new firmware (DH_IPC-HX5X3X-Rhea_MultiLang_PN_Stream3_V2.800.0000015.0.R.200430.zip) which included update.img and I was able to run:
run up

and it installed all needed software and the camera is up and running :)

These, and the tftp update problem, suggest that the ethernet connection is not working.
Presumably there is no link detect LED on the switch port it's connected to.

Could the RJ45 connector be corroded?
Any other things that might damage the ethernet connection?
I checked the Rj45 connector and measured all pins from the Rj45 connector to the PCB, it seems all to be fine. I see that the yellow switch led blinks on the switch port in a 3-4 seconds delay.

I assume that the network IC on the PCB has a malfunction. Does anybody know if it can be replaced? Solder station is available on my side.

Thanks
