There're several possible causes for failing to power Reolink IP cameras. You may follow the troubleshooting tips listed below to solve the problem.
Cause 1. Defective power supply
Solution: If your camera is powered by a DC adapter, please use a properly-functioning power supply and outlet to see if works.
For E series, C series and Lumus, please use 5V/2A power adapter.
For other wireless and PoE IP cameras, please use 12V/1A power adapter.
For RLC-423 series, please use 12V/2A power adapter.
Cause 2. Incompatible or defective POE Injector/Switch
If your PoE camera is powered via the POE port of a POE NVR/switch, please try the following steps:
- Please make sure you use the correct PoE injector/switch.
For RLC-423 series, please make sure that the PoE injector/switch is 802.3at compliant (48V) and supports active mode.
For other Reolink PoE camera models, please make sure that the PoE injector/switch is 802.3af compliant (48V) and supports active mode.
- Please use another Ethernet cable and try a different port on the POE NVR/injector/switch.
- If the problem persists, please power the camera via DC adapter to see if it works.
Cause 3. Defective camera hardware
Solution: Cover the day/night sensor or place the camera in a dark environment to see whether the Infrared lights will turn on or whether you can hear a click sound. If not, please reset the camera to default factory settings and try again.
