Binding and pan and tilt failures on the Spectra Mini when removing the dome liner.

Product Line

Pelco Cameras

Environment

  • Spectra Mini all models

Cause

Pan and Tilt control does not function properly.

Resolution

Pelco does not recommend that the dome liner be removed for any reason (including when adjusting the dip switches) on the Spectra Mini. Many problems such as binding and pan and tilt failures have been attributed to the dome liners being removed and improperly re-installed in the field. When you have re-installed a dome liner for any reason please check to see that the unit pans freely.

Below are pictures of the new dome liner and the pan and tilt arms. The pan and tilt arms must properly fit into the slots of the dome liner. If the dome liner does not it will cause the binding mentioned above. When installing the dome liner, reach in with a finger or a hook type tool to push or pull these arms in order to line them up with the slots on the dome liner.
