    Default CCTV wiring

    Hi all,
    Hoping someone can shed some light on this.
    I wanted to install a CCTV camera at home and in order to pass the cable down a narrow conduit I cut the cable and joined the 3 wires together again as in the photo. The wires are soldered together, the connector blocks are just to keep them separated. However the camera doesn’t give me a picture. I know there is power going to the camera as the infra ref lights on the camera glow in the dark. The red wire carries the power supply and the yellow wire is for video. The copper wire was braided around the yellow wire.
    Any help would be appreciated. The cameras are made by Fleureon.
    Thanks.

    Sounds like low voltage, can you run another twin core cable to dominate voltage drop

    If you can temporarily install camera at this end to check it works still.

    whilst you at it, if possible two cameras one high up to see entry/exit of shitting cats and another at 6’ high to get better facial of any shitting cats.

    its not an issue 6’ camera getting ripped off, as you will see what color fur the animal in question has

    might be affected by you low number of posts and thanks

    Hi! It might also come from the copper wire which provides noise shielding to the video signal, that's why it is braided around your yellow wire. I don't think it is the main reason for your fault but could be a contributing factor.
