    Help, D200 with security cable?

    Hello,

    I bought at auction a pair of D200, in the pics you can see the "Soundlink SEC-7505 High Grade Security Multi-Core Cable" that are attached to both bodies. I have searched but cannot find any information on what these cables are exactly and how to remove them.

    Anyone familiar with these cables?

    Any info greatly appreciated.

    Here are pics of cameras and cables, they are in my member gallery MRinAZ if this link does not work.

    Thanks in advance!

    My guess it is a custom installed cable for some tethered operation. The cable marking SEC 7505 looks to be a cable specification with coax plus five cables.

    Since you bought these at auction, my big concern would be rather or not the cameras are stolen property.

    Welcome to the forum, i guess you got no indication of the use from the seller.

    Looking at a PDF manual for the D200, the only thing inside that little door is a USB port. So it looks as though the bodies were modified for some reason. You might want to contact Nikon and ask if they have any idea.

    The cable wires are soldered more than likely. You would have to take the camera apart to remove the cable.
    1. Does the camera work?
    2. Do you have a way to test the USB port to see if it is still working. If it isn't, then my guess would be they replaced the USB out with the 5 pin connector.

    My only thought is that they used to to connect to a printer or monitor or something, but I can't imagine why they would go to that much trouble. Maybe they used them as security cameras if the D200 has that capability. I don't know.

    Let us know if you find out.

    I'm thinking those cables were professionally installed so the cameras could be used as "hands on" display models in the store. The connector would be plugged into an anti-theft monitoring device.

    Assuming I'm correct, I'm also thinking they're going to be tricky to remove since the core of the cable is probably high-strength steel designed specifically to resist being cut by average hand tools. I think you're probably looking at needing bolt cutters or some deft use of an angle grinder with a cutting wheel.

    This is what you are dealing with. Not difficult to cut through, but I am not an electronics person, so I don't know to deal with the exposed wires or hole in the camera when done.

    Looking at this where it says low voltage makes me wonder if the cameras were used for video surveillance. Question for anyone: so wouldn't it be possible that the wires are hot when the bodies are turned on?
