Underwater Camera help

Recommended Posts

I made a stupid mistake this morning & cut the cable on my camera. The first mistake was dropping my cell phone down the hole yesterday & i went to fish it out today & drilled a hole found the camera & had to cut a hole next to one that was already drilled. Instead of pulling the camera out I decided to drill one next to the hole & the auger slid over & caught the camera cable & cut it. So my question is does anyone know where I can get a new cable or get mine fixed? The camera is an Aqua Vu SV. The factory isn't able to fix the cable. They say I have to buy a whole new cable camera unit.

Holy [PoorWordUsage].... Murphy's law in action right there. I'm not sure but I bet you'll have to purchase a new camera and cord to plug into you monitor. Hope things get better for ya.

All I said was crop, but switch the o for an a. I didn't think that was too harsh....

Splice it yourself, soldier the wires together tape yp then slide heat shrink tubing over ther area and before you heat up the heat shrink put some high quality silicone in the heat shrink and the heat it up enought to compact some of the silicone out. Let dry and you should be back in buisness!

I wonder though...it's probably more than just a coaxial cable...likely wiring for lights and other crop too. Not that the lights are usually worth a darn anyways.

Good advice though...it probably isn't going to be too complicated to repair yourself, or have a buddy do it if you're not inclined in that area.

Happened to my first Atlantis Cam. Cut the damaged area out and re-connected ends with Shrink Tubing, Electrical tubing and Silicone. Once she was all dry, was back in action with no problems.

I would agree, try getting it back together either yourself or a electronics place. Shrink tube and seal it up after you know it works. I think it will.

I sent mine in and had a new cable/camera put on. It took less than a week to get it back and didnt cost that much. Great service from Aqua Vu.

Well, I've got it soldered back together and am using some stuff called liquid tape. I have been told that it is completely waterproof. Just waiting for it to dry and put a couple more coats on and some heat shrink tubing over the top then more liquid tape. I will let you all know how it works. I will get that phone out tomorrow if the camera holds up. Aqua Vu is serviced now by a company called Outdoors Insight. I had very good luck with Aqua Vu when my monitor went on the fritz. Took it to them and the put on a new monitor no questions asked.

Last time I looked they did still have a HSOforum up and running, not that that means anything.

I think you can get those batteries from any numnber of places, google it and take a look.

    • Have to agree great game looked real good definitely more aggressive time will tell.
    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us. 
    • Who all uses this system? Do you raise and lower your house with a drill.   I was looking at picking up the 2 speed winchs for both axles and the hitch winch.   Are they worth the money??
