If you have damaged the RJ45 in a Uniview camera, you can redo the connector and save the camera. However, what’s the Uniview RJ45 pinout wiring? Well, that’s what we will show in this guide.
Quite often happens that the RJ45 connector on cameras pigtail gets rusted, damaged, burned, fried, pins broken, etc. That means that the camera will not power and, practically it will be dead. Moreover, the manufacturer considers this situation an improper installation, and the warranty on the camera is voided.
However, there are a few ways to fix a camera with such conditions. You can cut the damaged RJ45 connector and terminate the connection using a new RJ45 connector. After that, you can use an Ethernet coupler. Another way to fix it is by using a keystone jack.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This article details the tools needed and the whole procedure on how to fix a camera’s damaged RJ45, consult it and follow the steps one by one: How to fix IP security camera’s damaged RJ45 Ethernet connector.
Uniview RJ45 Pinout Diagram
If the dead camera is Uniview logo or OEM, check the picture below for the pinout diagram. This diagram applies if you intend to crimp a new RJ45 connector on the camera’s pigtail.
So, on the left side are the color-coded wires from the Uniview camera. Once you strip the cable, you should see 8 color-coded wires. Line-up them the same way as shown on the diagram.
Then on the right side is the RJ45 connector (T568B), use a pass-through type and guide the eight wires in the exact order. Please check the article linked at the beginning of this guide. It shows the whole procedure of how to fix a camera’s damaged RJ45 connector.
Another way to fix this issue is by using a keystone jack. Purchase one online and punch the wires down the same way as shown in the diagram below.
Both ways will get the camera back online. However, the keystone jack method is much simpler and faster. That’s the one we recommend to use.
Once the RJ45 connector is fixed, connect the camera to the network or NVR and wait for it to come online. Additionally, you can use a scanning tool to detect the camera on the network. If you are having a problem to fix the cable, we suggest (again) to read the detailed article linked at the beginning.
