DCS-7010L out of focus in day mode
« on: April 03, 2015, 07:49:37 AM »

Hi!

Camera was working great for one month now. But, since this morning, Day mode image is heavily out of focus! Only when I come close to it my face becomes sharp. Everything else in a distance is blurred. However, when I switch to Night/IR/b-w mode, the image is sharp and normal again!
I am not talking about blurred moving objects, but static image.

I suspected the bulb in the corridor shining on the lens, but that did not change since yesterday. Anyway, I tried shading the camera, covering the bulb, even switching it off... Also I restarted camera, but still, nothing changes.

The manual does not mention focusing at all.

Please help with advice, or at least explaining what is going on.

Maybe a dumb question - but is the lens clean ? Does sound odd....

What FW version is loaded on the camera?
Has a factory reset been performed at any point?

Yes, seems that reinstaling the last FW did the trick. It was already 1.04.00, but i played dumb and clicked Update Firmware. It went through without a hitch, and, so far, the problem with focus is also gone!

I recommend that you phone contact your regional D-Link support office and ask for help and information regarding this. We find that phone contact has better immediate results over using email.
Let us know how it goes please.
