    I’ve had the Top 201 Super Mini IP Cam ($44.00) working at my front door 7/24 since 2015 without a hitch
    Well, now it’s dead,no video.
    The system list:
    201 Mini IP cam
    TPLink tl-sf1008P/ POE
    TPLink ac1750 /router
    Dell Optiplex 9020
    Blue Iris software

    The screen shows:

    No Signal
    Error: 8000274c timeout, check IP Address and port 0

    I checked the cables and reseated the connections, still show no signal.
    I rerouted the cable from camera through POE switch to computer – bypassing the router, still no signal.
    I ping the camera from the computer and it passed.
    What else can I do, did the camera go bad? Need help

    I've got a TOP-201 but it's not POE, it takes 12VDC.

    Anyway, mine works with Blue Iris RTSP or VLC. Since you can ping it, try VLC "open network stream" with the following:
    Code:
    rtsp://Your_camera-IP:554/user=admin_password=Dt0xtPLi_channel=1_stream=0.sdp?real_stream
    If you have changed the password from the default null (nothing) to something, put that something in place of the above "Dt0xtPLi"

    What about its web interface? Does that not load?

    Mine will try but I didn't recommend it because it's that dangerous xmeye stuff, wants the equally dangerous ActiveX.

    Am I bad? I pinged the wrong device. The camera is not showing up in the router. I switched around ports and cables, still nothing. I checked the power and it's okay. I also noticed that the box is a little warm as always (not hot), indicating that power is getting to the camera.
    I think a new camera is needed.
    Thanks
