Title: DCS-932L, solid red light, 'reset' don't work
Post by: s10stealth on April 15, 2013, 07:43:31 PM
DCS-932L, solid red light, WPS light glows blue then goes out, and 'reset' doesn't work.

I've set up (2) DCS-930L's with the same network cable, no issues.

Paperweight?  :'(

I'm having the same issue.  Any solutions?  LED is solid red.  The camera will not respond to the reset button or being plugged in by Ethernet cable.  I have used multiple cables to make sure it isn't a bad cable.  The camera also gets pretty hot when it's plugged in for any length of time.  It's looking like a useless piece of plastic now.

Any ideas?

What firmware version are you using? Is the Wizard software you used to configure the camera compatible with the firmware that you have installed?

I'm having the same issue with the solid red light.
Also, can't find original setup wizard that came with camera.
I'm assuming it won't respond because the wizard I downloaded from dlink is much newer than the firmware still on the camera. Correct????

Where can I get an old setup wizard to match a camera that's several years old?

Can't download new firmware because the green light never comes on after many many many attempts.

Thanks.

If you wire the camera directly to your router, can you access the web UI through your PC to update the firmware? Did you try performing a factory reset? DCS-9XX - Factory Reset Procedure (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=47707.0)

You can download prior Wizard setup software versions here: http://tsd.dlink.com.tw/ (http://tsd.dlink.com.tw/) (Just make sure you choose the correct region -- ww = worldwide, NA = north america, etc.)

I can access the web UI (My DLink?), but my camera is shown as "Off Line". Nothing I do can get it to reconnect. (should I delete it and somehow start over?) I'm guessing that as long as it's off line I cannot upgrade the firmware, correct?

Factory reset it many many times. Still have red light for 6 seconds, blinks red 3 times then shows red constantly.

I downloaded previous version of setup wizard, then unzipped them and double click on "autorun", message comes up about potential harm from .exe file, told it to go ahead then message comes up that says it cannot connect to web page (?), although I can manually go to any web page and my internet connection is ok. I tried downloading and running several versions of the wizard all with the same results.

Open an IE browser on a PC connected to the same LAN as your DCS-932L and enter the camera IP address as the URL. This will bring up the DCS-932L web UI login page.

If you performed a factory reset and still can't get to the web UI through a direct connection, and the router can't see the device (looking at the router UI device table), then the device may be rendered inoperable.

At any point while the camera was working, did you try to upgrade the firmware through a wireless connection that broke during the upgrade process? That sort of scenario can break the camera.

No. Never tried a firmware update at any time.
The camera was working fine until earlier this week (wirelessly).
Then I got a new router and it quit working. That's when I started again to get it going.
After a factory reset it became "inactive" on my dlink web site.
Now all this, just dead I guess. Wired connection must be broken.

I didn't try my old router because I reset it and using it elsewhere.

I DID get a green light on the camera by disconnecting the wired ethernet and pushing the weps button on the camera and the router. Repeat, got a green light.

my 932L is also also now a toast. 
It is showing a solid red light along with the WPS blue light. Reset wont help

It lost connection to the network, and it was a little bit more hot when I touch it.
It might have overheated because the case cracks open little bit. The warranty sticker is still intact.
Now I cannot find my receipt hehe... and I think this unit is more than 1 year old already.
Oh well....

The only reason I'm sticking to mydlink products is because I can access them behind firewall and ISP's private IP address.

This is exactly what happened to me.  I WAS PROMPTED TO UPGRADE MY FIRMWARE BY THE MYDLINK LITE APP ON MY IPHONE.  Because the camera was connected to my network wirelessly, it broke the camera.   I was not warned to not upgrade because  the camera was in wireless mode.  Shame on you, D-Link.  And to make matters worse, I can't contact customer support because my camera is out of warranty!!!!

I'm worried I may have a toasted DCS-932L.
A little over a week ago, I started noticing a blue LED shining behind the unit, but didn't really get a chance to take a closer look until I noticed it wasn't recording.  The final recording doesn't show anything unusual right up until the moment the signal dropped.
There's a solid red LED on the front and the blue (WPS?) LED on the back.  Tried power cycling it, and depressing the reset button to no avail.  Plugged an Ethernet cable between the camera and a laptop and the laptop doesn't even register that the cable's been plugged in.

I may tinker with it a bit more, but I've got a feeling it's kaput.
It's been running indoors pretty much non-stop since early Feb 2014, so just over a year.  The other DCS-932L I purchased at the same time is still going, as of right now.

- I think your camera is in recovery mode
- Try to assign static IP address 192.168.0.20 to your computer
- Open your browser to access your camera gui (firmware upgrade gui will shows up) then browse to your firmware bin file then upload it
- Once upload is complete, obtain the IP address of your computer. you must have a green light to your camera hardwired to your router
- Get the DHCP IP address of the camera from your router
- Access your router GUI then change the wireless mode to WPA2 only
- Access your camera GUI go to wireless settings connect
- Scan for available network and connect to your own WI-FI
- I got the same case too..I locked my router to WPA2 only to be able to connect wirelessly to my router. WPA/WPA2 auto will not work

It also applies to the dcs932l.

There is an emergency web interface, which has to be used to flash OpenWrt.
Uploading via the regular web interface does not work.

    Disconnect Power
    Press and hold "Reset", connect Power and hold Reset until the blue LED goes out (about 8 seconds).
    Release reset
    Configure your computer to 192.168.0.x
    Fire up a web browser and connect to 192.168.0.20
    Upload your new firmware in the emergency web interface

If the above is true, then you could use this method to re-install your Dlink dcs932l firmware to the camera.  Be sure to have the correct firmware downloaded, and know where to find it on your computer.  If networking is all "voodoo" to you, have someone on hand
who understands networking and flashing firmware.

However, do try dlink support before doing anything.  If dlink support fails you, then you have nothing to lose by attempting to revive your camera.

This may help: I tried to extend the power supply cable to the 932L by about 10m by cutting the existing wires and joining in a length of low-voltage cable. Straight away the red-light issue happened. After trying to reset it a few times unsuccessfully, and a lot of head scratching, i thought to take out the extra length of cable, and try again. The camera worked fine as before, the green light came on first time.

Hence, it seems to me the power supply is just about adequate enough to power the camera, but probably close to the edge. Trying a different power supply with a higher current output capacity should make the camera more reliable IMHO.

Post by: FurryNutz on September 16, 2015, 10:52:55 AM
Actually it would not be the power supply if it's used as it is designed for. Adding additional cable between the adapter and plug is not recommended and it increases the distance the electrons have to travel. In this case the adapter was not designed to send electrons over the intended design of the adapter and cable length.

Not maybe adding a power extension cable between the adapter and wall out let can be done. Just not in between the adapter and camera.

@am959 et al:
I think there was a thread wrt this on this forum a couple of years ago; you might want to do a search for it.  However, the "copper wire table" predicts for an 18 guage (often used for lamp cord) a resistance of approx. 6.5 ohms/1000 ft.  If you used 10 ft. for your extra cable, the added resistance would be .065 ohms; which at 1.2 amps (camera spec.) would result in a voltage drop of less than 0.1 volt at the camera.  Compare this to a line voltage flucuation of 10 volts on a nominal 115 volt line.  IF this were transformed to 5 volts needed by the camera, the voltage change would be 0.4 volts.  Of course, this should not happen with a switching regulator of decent design. 

All that being said; if you used a common extension cord to reach from the wall socket to near the camera power supply, you should not have any problem with a voltage drop, assuming that dlink's engineers have done their homework for the equipment you have purchased.  Not sure about this, as I believe if the camera malfunctions because of 0.1 volt drop, that is not very good endineering.

OTOH, 1000's of these cameras are in use with the power cube supplied, and I don't hear about any problems.  So, bottom line:  Use an extension cord.

Bob

Yup! I got it replaced. I was able to set up the new item last night. I checked the live stream at like 11:30PM before going to sleep. Then when I woke up, I checked the live stream again but it was disconnected already. Now it has a solid red light too, and smells toasted. Hmm Does it mean it overheated? It's kinda frustrating. :(

Okay, so I got a replacement for the third time. I hope this one doesn't get burnt again.

This is kinda off topic now:

My model is DCS-942L.
I read in the comments section on this site (http://www.camcloud.com/blog/dlink-dcs-942l-review) that it turns off once a day? If yes, at what time and for how long? And when it restarts, it should automatically re-connect to the wifi, right?

Ours is situated outside the room which has no aircon. So that's probably why it gets too hot sometimes. Wish it were more durable.

I tried to upgrade the firmware of my camera without making it in static ip. My camera is not responding now. I can`t make it static also. Is there any solution for this?

Did you do a factory reset on the camera then set up from scratch. It will get a new IP address from the main host router So you'll need to look at the DHCP client table to see what IP address it got, this go from there.

Got my DCS-5009L bricked after a firmware unintended update (wife press YES on firmware update over D-Link app).
Found this thread and now I'm here to say that the:
    "Disconnect Power
    Press and hold "Reset", connect Power and hold Reset until the blue LED goes out (about 8 seconds).
    Release reset
    Configure your computer to 192.168.0.x
    Fire up a web browser and connect to 192.168.0.20
    Upload your new firmware in the emergency web interface"

Worked for me also!

I was only getting the red LED and no reset button or WPS working. That was the only way to communicate with the camera and make it work.

Thx!

Glad you got it working. You can find this procedure here for future reference: Emergency Recovery Mode (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=44909.msg163599#msg163599)

Enjoy.  ;)

The following is from  http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/d-link/dcs-930l
It also applies to the dcs932l.

There is an emergency web interface, which has to be used to flash OpenWrt.
Uploading via the regular web interface does not work.

    Disconnect Power
    Press and hold "Reset", connect Power and hold Reset until the blue LED goes out (about 8 seconds).
    Release reset
    Configure your computer to 192.168.0.x
    Fire up a web browser and connect to 192.168.0.20
    Upload your new firmware in the emergency web interface

If the above is true, then you could use this method to re-install your Dlink dcs932l firmware to the camera.  Be sure to have the correct firmware downloaded, and know where to find it on your computer.  If networking is all "voodoo" to you, have someone on hand
who understands networking and flashing firmware.

However, do try dlink support before doing anything.  If dlink support fails you, then you have nothing to lose by attempting to revive your camera.

Yes!! Worked very well on my dcs-932l (had almost gave up after a firmware upgrade 1.12-03).

Thanks!

I tried above procedure but holding reset for 10 seconds or more the blue led doesn't go out...
Do you think it's fried or maybe the emergency web interface page is still available?

Give the emergency procedure a try. If it fails, possible the unit is bad.
How long have you had the camera for?
You might test the power adapter top for correct voltages and amps seen on it's sticker.

I have the cam since 3/4 years.
The power adapter is ok. I tried also from another cam (same model).
I guess last week I disconnected the cam from ethernet cable; the cam automatically switched to wifi; at the same time a firmware update started and for some reason went bad.

I recommend that you phone contact your regional D-Link support office and ask for help and information regarding this.
>Tech Support Contact Information (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?board=635.0)
Ask them about an RMA. We find that phone contact has better immediate results over using email.
Let us know how it goes please.
