Cam Not Showing In 16 View but in all others???

I have an odd one that seems to have just started.

The IP camera assigned to CH2 on my new 16 CH NVR is not being displayed. However, if I double click and go full screen on that CH, the image is presented in clarity.  Once I close the full screen and go back to 16 view the CH 2 view is black. If I choose 1-4CH view, the camera appears no problem.  Its odd, the CH2 is just blank on the 16 CH view only.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks

Should have added that earlier...

Have rebooted the cam over the web GUI...

The POE Swith and the NVR twice...last time was after I rebooted the POE switch and the CAM.

All but one of my other cams are same setup....

 

Any thoughts?

NEVER FAILS!!

Start the thread and figure it out...

After looking again, I see a difference....

Not sure why it would have worked once and then not now but the manufacturer on CH 2 was set to PRIVATE.

Once I went to Onvif, changed the HTTP port number and she came to life.

Oh well, now there's an answer for the next guy with that issue  LOL

Thanks anyway!!

Delete the camera off and put a different one in its place and see what happens. If that doesn't work you are looking at a hard reset on the camera or a reset on NVR which one of the techs here would have to do. 

 

wrong protocol will do it too

if they are the EL- IP cameras they are always private. All others are ONVIF normally.

All my cams are EL-2MP...

So, I should change them all back to private?

Would you have a screen shot of the config if so...?

This way, I know I have all the settings correct...

Or, if you could tell me the variables I should be using under the NVR config for each cam.

Yes all EL cameras should be set to private. Which NVR do you have and how many cameras do you have? That will dictate what you settings should be.

CAMS:

QTY 9: IPOB-EL2MPIR50 (2 MP Bullet)

QTY 1: IPPTZ-EL2MPIR250L20X (2 MP PTZ)

The bit rate on the cameras  needs to come down to 4096. Go into detect settings and make sure motion check box is checked. Other than that you should be fine, and obviously every device needs its own ip address.

I think there is some confusion...

What I seek are the onvif vs private settings???

YOu stated earlier that I should have the cameras on PRIVATE not ONVIF.

Not so much in the detect but the actual setup for each channel...

Make sense??

These are the settings I was looking for.

the NVR will grab these cameras and set them to private normally. I usually do not have to tell the NVR to set cam to private except when it does not detect it. 

We carry two other IP camera lines the TP and LX. Those cameras have to be set in NVR to onvif. I hope that clears it up for you. As for the bit rate, frame rate that holds the same regardless of camera. That is still dictated  per the type of NVR you have.

Clear as mud...sorry :(

You see, I have all of my cameras manually set to ONVIF.

This is based on the original issue of this thread.

Please, if you can provide the settings that should be under config for PRIVATE.

Not looking for DETECT settings, the actual config for the camera once added to the NVR.

Not trying to make this hard I assure you, just asking for the same thing each time.

Was trying to save time by not calling in but that may be the only way to get what I need?

Thanks,
Shawn

If you don't want to call use the chat support. Sometimes you need to see it to remember it.

So, I will take that as a NO to my question and guess calling is my best bet moving forward when looking for answers.

The "private" Is a protocol there are no settings persay other than just picking protocol. If you are reffering to frame rate and bit rate again that depends on the NVR you have.

on this NVR= NVR-ELC-16 the only spec you need to worry about is bit rate. All cams should be set to 4096 bit rate in encode options. THe FPS can be maxed out as this NVR has the power to handle it.
