Wipe the lens in the same manner, only this time with a dry edge of the tissue.
Apply distilled alcohol to the tip of a cotton swab. Rub the moistened tip of the swab around the connection on the back of the CCTV camera where the coaxial cable is screwed into the coax connection to remove loose dirt and grime.
Brush off the camera with a photo lens brush.
Place the jaws of a pair of pliers around the end of the coaxial cable where it meets the connection on the receiver.
