Sometimes you may be wondering if the Mallincam Xtreme is working since you do not seem to be getting an image (either through the software window or from an attached monitor). This procedure will force the Xtreme to generate its Colour Bar directly without having to try no navigate through the OSD menu system. If you obtain the Xtreme Colour Bar, then your know for sure that the camera is generating images (a signal). This will at least allow you eliminate the output component form the possible reasons why you are not receiving an video image.
Press and hold the UP and DOWN buttons on the back of the Xtreme for 3 seconds.
