Aqua Vu Scout Problem


mike jupiter

Question

My Aqua Vu Scout is no longer working. It's two years old and has only been used a handful of times. The camera seems to be powered, seeing as the battery is fully charged, all cables are plugged in correctly, and the red light turns on the monitor. However, I get no picture at all. I thought that in the past a green light on the monitor would come on, not a red one.

Either way I talked to Aqua Vu support and they said they believe it's a faulty monitor... but I don't want to spend $50 on a brand new monitor if that's not the problem.

Any ideas/suggestions/comments?

Try a different battery. Even tho your battery seems fully charged it might not handle the load anymore.

Mike, look into the end of your camra and see if it is cloudy, or has water in it. If so it shorted out! Happened to me twice! mad

First try a new battery, they are cheap and you can always use extra.. next take an rca jack and plug your unit into your tv and see if you see an image.. if you see an image, its your monitor, if you dont it could be your camera...

Hi,

Same thing happen to me. Aqua Vu support told me the same thing. They acted like it was a common problem with the scout. I upgrade to the XL for $75(I think). bNb

mike, I actually had it repaired twice, once by them because it was under warranty and then the second time I paid. When it happened again I threw it in the trash and got a different off brand camra from the Pro shop on hwy 65 which I have had for 3 years now. I think I posted this on another tread that it was not that the camra leaked but the metal braided wire on the inside pokes little holes in the rubber cover and the water leaks down through the cord into the top of the camra and gets inside of it that way. They told me they were working on a way to fix that issue, but I wasn't going to wait for them to fix their problem. cry

Hey Gents.. I am new here... is it inappropriate to state that I am interested in buying dead Aqua Vu systems? The new cameras are just over a hundred bucks now- don't put a lot into trying to fix old ones..

Red light on for the monitor, and the green light means your LEDs are on on the camera. Should be 2 seperate lights, in 2 seperate areas

If the scout has a video out just plug it into any tv that has a video in. If it all works then that pinpoints the monitor is the problem. Just replace it with any 12V TV and your set.

The other weak link with the Aqua Vu stuff is that black plastic screw-twist connector that has all the pins in it-- that connector freq. goes bad. Aqua Vu charges 45$ plus shipping to replace the connector.

You can buy pretty decent new underwater cameras for just over 100$ (I would not get a fish tv, perhaps another scout).

Dead Force,

you are right with the connector from the camera to the switchboard mine went out and twisted of the wire, so I took it apart and am going to resolder the wires. Now I just need nature vision to call me back and tell me what color wires go to what number on the connector.

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend

      To create such an application, developers specializing in investment applications for banks and other financial services are needed. At https://mangosoft.tech/industry/investment-software-development/ you can order the creation of investment applications from scratch or find ready-made solutions.

      great app idea never heard of commercial apps before. it seems to me that the fastest way to find developers on any exchanges, that is, you need to place your ad and then you will be offered all possible options

      It seems to me that this is excellent advice, but one option is not enough, I think. You need to look at a few and decide which one is best, it all depends entirely on the customer.
    • Andre.y
      the best option is to entrust such work to other specialists, but you will have to pay a lot of money for this, but still I think it's worth it to get a quality product that you will have to work with for a very long time, if not all your life

      Tips for Reducing the Stress of Writing High School Papers  
    • leoholmes
      High school is a pivotal time in every student's life. The challenges of this period range from the courses themselves to the social pressures that come from interacting with peers. One of the main challenges high school students face is writing papers. The reason for this is that writing is a skill that develops over time, and many high school students have never had to produce a paper before. High school students need to write papers for many different classes. These papers may be research papers or essays. These different types of papers all require different skills for help write my paper. However, high school students may struggle with all of them. This is because they aren't used to producing writing on a regular basis.
