This Sricam SP009 IP camera doesn't equip the IR-CUT feature, so when the surrounding light becomes strong, the color of the captured image will change. Even at indoors, the more strong the light is, the more purpler the image will become. It's normal and cannot be adjusted manually.

● The WiFi SSID name should not contain special characters but only the English characters.

● Change a phone to have a try, maybe your phone has something wrong.

● Firstly, please check whether you have turned on the Sricam SP009 IP camera's E-mail or phone push alarm feature. After you connect the camera to your phone, in the Scricam application, enter the camera's CCTV interface and press the Setting button to enter its Settings - Alarm Setting, enable the "Receive alarm message" feature, and bin your E-mail or phone to the app, so that you can receive the alarm messages.

● Check whether you have set the alarm push feature well, please refer to this Sricam SP009 IP camera setting guide - How to set email and the phone push alarm.

You can contact the after-sales service to ask whether you can buy the original USB cable or charger from them, or you can go to a digital product shop to see whether you can get the component there.

● When all the methods are useless, maybe the camera hardware is damaged or the circuit is broken. Please contact the after-sales service to send it back the factory to check and repair. Alternatively, you can take it to a digital product repair center to check and repair.

● Check whether you have turned on the speaker and microphone features on the Sricam app. Connect the camera to your phone, and enter the CCTV interface, press the speaker button to turn on the feature, and the microphone will be launched as well.

● Once the methods don't work, maybe the microphone or other related component is damaged. You can take it to a local digital product repair center to check and repair it.

● Make sure whether your Micro SD card installs well on the camera or not, simply remove it and reinsert it into the card slot.

● Please make sure the format of the Micro SD card is FAT32. Insert the TF card in a card reader and connect it to a PC, and then right click the mouse on the SD card disk to change its property there.

● Maybe the TF card storage is full, you can check it in the camera's Setting - SD information. If so, you can copy the stored videos and pictures to other external space such as the PC to release the space for new recorded videos.

● If none of the methods work, the most possible reason is the camera's card slot or other component is broken. You can take it to a digital product repair center to check and repair. Alternatively, you can contact the after-sales service for further assistance, exchange, refund, or sending it back the factory to repair.
