If there is nothing at all on the displays, make sure they have power switched on and are set to the correct input. The panel to your left should be set to input VIDEO (use the TV remote control to change input) and the panel to your right should be set to RGB/HV. A little green light to your left on the front indicates the Tandberg Codec is powered on. If not, the switch is on the right hand side at the rear of the codec.
The camera is attached to the Tandberg Codec and can be manipulated with the Tandberg Remote Control. To see the current camera setting press the SELFVIEW button on the Tandberg Remote.
