Anyone out there have the color code/pinout for the Ethernet port on an IPOD-EL1MPIR50 IP camera? The POE Ethernet port for my IP camera is damaged and missing a pin. I want to replace the port with a standard RJ45 keystone jack. If I knew the color code and pinout for the camera I could do this. Can someone please help? Thanks in advance for anyone who can help.
No. This is a camera that has been installed for about a year and stopped working recently. The RJ45 POE Ethernet port pin #6 basically broke due to corrosion. I could easily replace it with RJ45 keystone jack if I knew the color code and pinout for the camera wires. I have already cut the original RJ45 connector off. The wire colors are blue, orange, gray, purple, yellow and brown. Doesn’t really line up with the standard T-568B network color code. If I knew which colors went to which pins I would be well on my way to repairing this camera.
Yeah, it was a pretty boneheaded move on my behalf cutting the end off before I verified the color code and pinout. As far as the warranty, I just assumed that the warranty had run out already. I’ve got another weather proof IP camera IPVD-EL3MPIR that is dead as well and will not power up. I should definitely verify the warranty status on it then.
It was mounted outside on a fence post as was the IPOD-EL1MPIR50 camera. The connector isn’t corroded. The camera just isn’t powering up through the POE. I suspect water has gotten to the electrical components either through some seal leak or through condensation. To give you some background. I didn’t install either of these camera’s. They were installed last year by someone else. I inherited them when I took a position in IT support here in Feb of this year.
Ohh I understand, is odd that this occurred to this camera. This camera in fact is fine if mounted outdoors. We have one for over 2 Years in our building outside on a corner and is been exposed to heat, Rain, Storms etc. I guess whoever mounted the camera didn’t sealed the connectors correctly and the camera got water damaged.

itguyjc, perhaps you can help me out a little. I am in the same situation regarding a corroded port – so was going to replace with a keystone jack. I am not that familiar with setting this up.
I have 6 wires in the cable from the old keystone connector: white, yellow, orange, purple, blue & brown
Where do I punch these down onto in the cat 5 keystone?

So I just tried it. I setup the wires that I had (only the 6) and put them into the correct Keystone pin port and left the others empty. I connected it up to my POE switch and it all works. I just need to seal the keystone so it doesn’t corrode like the one that came with the camera.
You can use a junction box to make your connection weather proof. This way you can service the camera and keep the connections dry preventing any further situations.
