    There are several different types of cameras with that name.
    I think the connector is "phone line" RJ11
    There are two twisted pairs in the cable.
    One pair of wires is ground and video.
    The other pair is +12 volts and ground.

    I am not 100% on that.

    I just recently come across several of these Philips Magnavox observation cameras and the cords have been cut. How do I go about figuring out which wire's are ground, power and video

    In this tablet (Android) I suffer the same problem. It is most probably because your Adobe reader finds the .pdf built by an application which does not comply 100% with the standard. Picky.

    For the moment, my solution is to read it in my desktop with a different reader.
