please check according to the following procedures. If the problem still can’t be solved, please call the hot line or send e-mail.
If you have many questions, please write them down and send to us. We will reply in time.
Common detecting methods:
[1] Replace (replace power supply or hard disk, etc)
[2] Minimum load (remove hard disk, video, audio, alarm input/output)
[3] Upgrade (solve the problems of peripheral devices)
(I) Start, self detection, breakdown
1. Why the DVR isn’t started when power supply is connected?
① Check whether the power switch at the rear is “ON”; ② Check whether the indicator on front panel is lit.
2. Why system stays in self detection after boot logo?
Check whether the HDD is connected properly and whether the HDD and cable are in good condition. To check the HDD,
remove it and turn on the DVR. The DVR may be turned on normally even without the HDD and displays “No HDD,
continue?”. Click “Yes” to operate the DVR.
3. Why the boot process is slow?
84

① The system will search the data when boots. If too many data are saved in the HDD, it will take longer time; ② The
error of HDD will make the DVR to detect the HDD repeatedly.
4.
Why the DVR restarts repeatedly after self detection?
① Check the HDD. If the HDD hasn’t been formatted or the HDD has fault, the DVR will be restarted; ② Check the
power supply of DVR; ③ Pull out the network cable and restart the DVR. Serious network fault may cause the DVR to
restart repeatedly.
5.
Why the DVR restarts repeatedly after long time running?
① Check whether the HDD sectors are damaged; ② Check whether the video signals are normal. If it is confirmed that
abnormity ever occurred and it still restarts when video input is stopped, please cut off the power of DVR and connect
again later; ③ Check the power supply of DVR.
6.
Why I can’t control the DVR with remote controller?
① If the infrared indicator on front panel isn’t lit, please check whether the battery has electricity or whether the remote
controller is damaged.
7.
Why breakdown occurs in the normal video playing or viewing process?
Check whether the HDD is connected properly; replace the HDD if it is damaged.
8.
Why the monitor (TV set) has no image or can’t be started after update?
Keep the power supply stable in the upgrading process. If the power supply is cut off, the update will be failed or even the
DVR can’t be started. Then, please update the DVR again. If the update fails or can’t update, please contact the supplier.

(II) Image display/monitoring
1. Why the images in monitor or TV set are black and white?
Check whether the systems of video input, DVR and monitor or TV set are uniform. If not, select “Auto” for monitor or
TV set.
2. Why the monitor doesn’t display anything?
① There is a black screen process (about 30 seconds) when the DVR is starting; ② If there is no image displayed when
the DVR is started for a long time (more than 60 seconds), please check whether the monitor is turned on and whether the
video cable is connected properly. If there is no problem, please check whether the VDF display on front panel of DVR is
lit; if it is normal, the system communication is normal. Then, connect the video signals to the monitor directly to check
whether there is signal and whether the circuit has fault.
3. Why the images are distorted?
① Check whether the video connection is short circuit or open circuit, or has false welding or poor connection; ② Video
cable is interfered with by strong electricity; do not install the video cable and the strong electricity circuitry together and
also choose qualified shielded cable; ③ In the whole system, connect only the center DVR to earth; otherwise, it will
cause common mode interference; connect the grounding screw at the rear side of DVR to earth; ④ Check whether the
DVR, monitor or the circuitry is aged.

(III) Video recording/playing, recording data, backup
1.
Why the recording has no audio?
① Check whether “Mute” is activated; ② Check whether “Audio” is selected in the settings of video recording; ③ Check
the audio input cable.
2.
Why I can’t perform timing recording or can’t record any data within the period?
① The period of timing recording is invalid. The time points should be within 00:00-24:00 and the end time must be later
than the beginning time; ② The power supply is cut off in the timing recording process; ③ The desired data have been
overwritten; ④ The HDD has physical damage or logical error and the data can’t be read normally.
3.
Why I can’t perform moving recording or alarm recording?
① The time period of moving recording or alarm recording is invalid. The end time must be later than the beginning time;
② No motion detection area is selected; no alarm recording channel is selected; ③ The sensitivity of motion detection is
too low; the alarm isn’t triggered correctly; please check the alarm input and triggering device.
4.
Why the recording isn’t continuous?
① If manual recording or timing recording is selected, check whether the power supply was cut off or voltage was
abnormal during the recording process; ② If motion detection recording or alarm recording is selected, check whether
alarm occurred. The alarm will trigger the recording and record according to the preset time.

5. Why “Auto-overwrite” is invalid when recording is activated?
① Check whether the “Overwriting mode of recording” is “Auto cycle”; ② Check whether the HDD has logical error or
physical damage. If there is logical error, connect the HDD to PC and delete the partition information or repair the HHD
and connect it to the DVR. If there is physical damage, replace the HDD.
6. Why there is no response after click “Backup” when I use client software to backup DVR data?
Check whether firewall is enabled. The client software may not backup the DVR data if firewall is enabled.
7. Why the time skips when I play the recording files?
It is usually caused by the adjustment of time. To avoid this situation, please check whether the data need to be saved
before adjusting the time. If not, please format the HDD when the DVR is started after time is adjusted.
8. Why the image playing is slow?
① Check whether slow playing is enabled. The DVR supports 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 speed slow playing; ② Check
whether the HDD is connected properly and whether the HDD has bad sectors. The bad sectors of HDD may cause image
intermission or screen mess.
