Pin out for the Hawk Eye Nature Cam

by yelkenli1 / October 15, 2009 8:25 AM PDT

The Hawk Eye Nature Cam is a miniature camera packaged for outdoor use. It has power and RCA jacks for video and audio (white and yellow for video and audio, and the third red jack is used for power). It is powered by a wall converter 9V 0.5Amp DC output.

I need to cut the wires to fish the cable through a wall, then reconnect with jacks (available at Radio Shack).

Does anyone have any information on the manufacturer to ask them the correct re-connections (the connections are buried in a potted piece of plastic), and/or how to determine the polarity of the power and audio video connections. If this is not a good forum, a recommendation would help there also.

Repairing cable

Hi Ted,
You've probably figured out how to repair the cable by now, but if not, go to my web site at, and click on the Questions tab at the top. You'll find an explanation as well as a video about the third or fourth question down. I'm the original manufacturer for the Hawk Eye.

It is not often that we get a manufacturer of a digital camera to answer questions on our Forums.

But that type of response is welcome here.
Thanks for your helpful answer.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
