General Discussion / OpenIPcam status & fw for Foscam FI8904W clone ?
« on: January 09, 2015, 01:31:44 am »
Hi so after a days research ive worked out i have a FI8904W clone, and have it running their latest fw:
Device Firmware Version
Device Embeded Web UI Version,1085.0.html

So is there a openipcam for it ? What is openipcam features ? How far along is it ?


So i decided to try a different firmware, after working out this is a Foscam FI8904W clone, and being prepared to brick it with the wrong firmware for the chance of fixing the stuck aperture problem, combined with similar fw series numbers vs and success mentioned here:

It worked, both the firmware and ui upgrades ! and to make things even better it fixed my white out problem!

Device Firmware Version
Device Embeded Web UI Version
(also wifi still works)

so after upgrading the firmware it fixed it !! :) it seems the auto aperture was stuck, as now you see it 'stop' it down as its pointed at brighter scenes

Help / IP Camera All White when outside, complete whiteout ??

Inside its usable but the color is a bit out, but outside during day its completely white, if i put sunglasses on it you can make things out just, but its not usable.

Any ideas what this could be from ? Maybe a setting that could be adjusted in a different firmware ?

Hi, just registered. So after having some trouble with this model i pulled apart and ended up here !

This is the camera

Inside the mainboard has nuvoton w90n745cdg processor and pcb marked as NIP06 _M V2_Nov 29,2010
And the camera board has a main chip pap7501v with pcb marked NIP06_GP_ir-cut v3

WebUI states:
Device Firmware Version
Device Embeded Web UI Version

There are serial holes marked on the pcb.

Firstly if anyone reading this knows of compatible firmware please tell, otherwise i may have a go extracting it myself.

Secondly the problem that i didnt care about was wifi that barely worked. Turns out the antenna connection to the wifi pcb was not connected! , easy fixed.

The main problem im having is that outside during the day its completely white whiteout making it unusable outdoors, any comments ?
