{Inoperative} Sewer camera question [Relocated post]

I have one of the early sewer cameras that was sold on ebay about 6 years ago. It has problems so I'm here to figure out how these are built. The wires broke inside of the terminal end where the potentiometer is located. Anybody have a schematic on these?

Admins Note:
Question was initially posted into the wrong forum topic. Camera may be used for sewage line inspections but question and problem has nothing to due with plumbing, etc. Has to due with a camera that does not work and/or function properly. Thus moved into the camera topic. Hopefully, a film, camera and/or photo professional can offer some helpful suggestions, etc.

Thumbs up Welcome to our forums.

I am unsure of exactly which camera you have but if you say it has a pot I might guess it is the type that has the video screen attached to a handle and about a three foot long probe.
I have a USB inspection cam and use a Rigid one at work and yours could be similar to either of these.

Does the potentiometer turn the camera on and control the LED lighting?
If you can find a link to yours it would help.......Harbor Freight often has manuals for old models.

Without any information about the camera it's impossible to offer much advice. Can you post some pictures of the overall unit and then some close-ups of the problem area?
