    I recently acquired a Sentient N94FY CCTV camera with the cable ripped off. I don't know if this is faulty but I was told it had not ever been used before it was broken.

    I removed the camera module from the old casing which was missing it's bracket and have fitted a larger infra red lighting ring (Hence the glue) ready to be mounted into it's new case.

    I assumed the pinout would be straight forward but I am unable to get any output from it.

    If I apply 8 - 12v DC to the Red (+) and black (-) marked pins in the photograph the camera get's warm quite quickly (not too hot to touch) and the infra red ring functions correctly.

    I wonder though how to connect the video out. This camera previously had a microphone that was wired to the PCB. I have removed it as I do not require audio.

    I have only guessed the power pins that I have marked based on continuity. The colored spots I have marked indicate continuity between 2 points. I could not find a continuity point for the first pin which I suspect is under the camera module's plastic.

    Any help gladly received.

    It's OK I worked it out.
    If anyone want's to know, the pin marked yellow is the signal wire and the black (-) is the ground. I assume the first pin is for the audio?
    Cheers anyway...
