    Dear all,

    Good News! Problem solved!!!

    The mentioned component is not faulty even though it appears to be as if exploded. That blob on the tuning fork crystal is some kind of shellac to keep the component stable in place.

    I have two other CCTV units and saw that all of them have this weird shellac on this component. So, I said to myself that the fault must be definitely somewhere else. In fact, the problem was with its power supply. I swapped it with one of the other working units and boom, everything was working fine.

    If you intend to buy a new power supply, the best bet is to have it at least 6 Amps and not 5 Amps as when the unit is loaded with all the 4 PoE cameras (which depend on its PSU) and the Hard disk, the unit might be very very close to overloading. And don't forget to put an anti-surge plug to protect the unit as this will protect the PSU + Unit from any spikes in case of recovery from any power outages.

    I hope this solution will be useful to anyone that suspects that this component is faulty. It's a false alert!

    Thank you for your reply,

    I had a look at the power supply unit (transformer) and it had a faulty connection. There was insufficiant power going to the DVR unit causing it to fail. I have replaced the power unit and it works correctly now.

     

    Thank you
