surveillance camera, RJ11E? please help Answered

Hi I am from Sweden so my English is not entirely good. But anyway I have a surveillance camera with 4-pole RJ11E (Video, Audio, Power, Communications) as the connection. I want to connect the RJ11E cable to a RCA cable so I can see it on my TV. The problem is that I dont know which cable is for what, RJ11E = black, red, green, yellow.
one of them is to power the camera and one of them is to picture and sound.
Please help me thanks.

I found something similar in my junk pile. The cable for my camera has 4 wires:

black: common
red: power, +12 V
green: NTSC video
yellow: audio

A wiring diagram is shown in the second picture. I cannot guarantee that your camera is wired exactly the same way, but I expect they might be similar.

Yes, if you have to feed the camera, you need to supply +24 V and ground to it. See if you can find the Phillips VCM7C camera manual, and see if there are any better guides to wire colour. I'm guessing, based on the typical wiring colours found in most cameras. Steve
