Rebooting Hall Cameras

The three 'Hall' Cameras (hccam01, 02, 03) are on a switchable power supply. They can be rebooted from this switch. You need to be on a Hall C computer to access this link.

https://hcreboot4.jlab.org  (User: hccuser)
  • From the top tabs: Control >> RPDU >> Outlets
  • Then select "Reboot Immediate", the camera to be rebooted, and on the next page "Apply".

Make an HCLog if you reboot a camera this way.

"Firmware Install Required" Problem

Sometimes the camera firmware is damaged enough that it will request that the firmware be reinstalled after a power-cycle.

 % gunzip Sc385_213E.img.gz
  • Follow the Firmware Update instructions the camera presents on its web page. (Select the Sc385_213E.img file to upload.)

Make an HCLog if you have to do this.

NOTE: The camera firmware defaults to a 'H.264' live stream format that the web browser can't handle. Click on the 'JPEG' button on the left sidebar to get the live image back until the default can be reset by an expert.
