3. Power up the camera.
This applies to the TXB-IP only and not the TXB-N. If it is a TXB-N, hold the reset button for 10 seconds then release. This will reset the camera to default. The difference between the TXB-IP and the TXB-N is the location of the reset button. On the TXB-IP the reset button is located next to the LED. On the TXB-N the reset button is located across from the LED on the other side of the module.
The green LED blinks slow when an IP has been assigned during normal operation. If the RED Led shows up - it is detailing info about the onboard CPU in the encoder.
IF the LED Flashes red constantly is a bad CPU:
Cold start the board may fix it - if it continues replace the TXB
Constant red/amber flash means the CPU has stopped - This can happen if the reset button is held down for more than 12 seconds. ONLY a cold start will fix. Then the camera continues after cold start with reset process
RESET Process - LED flashes green fast while it is assigning an IP then flash slow during normal operation.
The default IP will be 192.168.0.20 if there is not a DHCP service present on the network.
