    Have had a Hikvision cctv system installed for about four years. Just recently one of the cameras, after switching to black and white infra red night vision, seems to go into a sort of ghosting image. However it is ok on daytime colour image. I powered down and rebooted the complete system and the problem seemed to go away but returned a few days later.

    What do you think? A faulty camera?

    Screen shot of day and night image would be useful

    The fault seems to be intermittent and it's ok at the moment. If it comes back I'll get some screen shots.

    Are your cameras powered by one central power supply or individual power supplies?

    I decided to reformat the drive, and at the moment the fault seems to have cleared up, so unable to grab any images at the moment.
