Title: Vstarcam H6837WIP [Print this page] author: Abby time: 2013-9-23 11:39 Title: Vstarcam H6837WIP Dear Sir, I have an electronics company and purchased a ip camera for evaluation. The camera has only been used for around one month. After a multiple power cut it failed. The camera still switches on but it has lost all other function. I cannot connect to it by lan to update the firmware. I have tried pressing the reset for short and long periods but still cannot make progress. I believe that there may be a technique of reinstalling the webUI from a TF card . If this is so I will need the webUI firmware download and the method of installing it. If nothing can be done may I return the circuit board to you for repair or replacement. It would be too costly for both of us to return the full camera. As I am an electronics engineer I would have no difficulty in replacing the board.
Thank you . author: VS-support1 time: 2013-9-23 11:45
