Tips & Tricks :
How to solve
E1 back LCD screen is black
This is normal when the CVBS output is activated because the video stream is sent to the AV interface. To get the image back on the camera LCD, power off the E1, unplug the AV interface & power On the E1 again
I no longer have the video stream with AV Interface
Each time you use the E1 without the AV interface, the CVBS output will automatically turn off. Just power cycle the camera with the interface plugged in, and re-activate ‘CVBS out’ in the menu
The video stream is frozen on my external monitor
This occurs when the E1 is not used and switches to standby mode. To wake up the monitor, take a picture or start/stop a video.
To avoid this, you can disable the ‘Auto off panel’ (Settings > Setup Menu > Auto off panel > Set to : Manual)
