When power cycled, the Spectra III or IV shows Configuration Done briefly and then disappears with no PTZ movement.

Issue

When setting up a  Spectra III or IV the startup text "Configuration Done" should stay on screen until PTZ is initiated.

Product Line

Pelco Cameras, Pelco Video Management

Environment

  • Spectra III
  • Spectra IV SE

Cause

If a Spectra III or IV is configured for UTP communication but is receiving a coax signal then it will result in false data to be received.

Resolution

Use a UTP communication method to communicate with the camera,

OR

Turn dip switch SW2-9 off to disable the UTP setting in the camera.

Either above method should result in proper data communication with the Spectra III or IV, resolving the issue.
