Quad IV-c with really dark camera | 9 October, 2018

Hi,

my Quad IV-c is showing a really dark image on the camera and its VERY difficult to see the components pads to make the adjusts.

I already check the monitor brightness (at maximum and I can see the crosshair, so the monitor is good) and already set the light level at maximum.

Is it worth to exchange the camera "ring" LEDs ? Maybe those LEDs lost the brightness over time? Maybe another problem?

Thanks

Move the camera over a feeder position and shine a flashlight to see if the image improves.....if it does....your light ring needs replaced or the led's need replaced in it. Sometimes just re-adjusting the angle of the led's in the ring can help.

Good Luck, Bob

Thanks Bob. Using a flashlight helps a lot, indeed. Is "re-adjust the angle" just a bend on the LEDs heads (by hand)? I will try.

To replace de LEDs, can I use white ones? I believe with the reds I get less light than whites, but maybe the camera need the red light for some reason.

Thanks!

re-adjust them .....yes just bend them in a little more. As for led's ....i have tried all kinds...some work better than others.

Bob

Wasn't there a MOD code or Function code that controlled default light brightness?

My memory is fuzzy on this so I might be completely off base.

ya.....i forgot about that........

mod code 35 and mod code 36 control lighting on the machine. Full brightness is 255.

There are also light setting in the configuration file but i tend to keep people out of it.

Thanks, Bob
