I need to repair this cable. I tried putting heads on each end and using a coupler but the coupler didn't seem to carry the power. It's for security cameras. Twisting the cables together worked for now but the signal lag is noticable. Whats my solution here besides doing the incredibly hard wire run again?




This is the coupler I used.

only other option is to put a switch in at that point or pull a new cable.

What type of cable is it? (solid or strand)  If it is solid you might be better off putting a jack on the end and patching them together with a short patch cable
