Troubleshooting Remote Control:
Make sure you have installed batteries properly in the remote control. And you have to aim the remote
control at the IR receiver in the front panel.
If there is no response after you press any button on the remote, follow the procedure below to troubleshoot.
Steps:
1. Go to Menu > Settings > General > More Settings by operating the front control panel or the mouse.
2. Check and remember NVR ID#. The default ID# is 255. This ID# is valid for all the IR remote controls.
3. Press the DEV button on the remote control.
4. Enter the NVR ID# you set in step 2.
5. Press the ENTER button on the remote.
If the Status indicator on the front panel turns blue, the remote control is operating properly. If the Status indicator
does not turn blue and there is still no response from the remote, please check the following:
1. Batteries are installed correctly and the polarities of the batteries are not reversed.
2. Batteries are fresh and not out of charge.
3. IR receiver is not obstructed.

If the remote still can’t function properly, please change a remote and try again, or contact the device provider.

Check that the voltage of the extra power supply is the same with the NVR’s requirement, and the ground
connection is working properly.
Starting up the NVR:
Steps:
1. Check the power supply is plugged into an electrical outlet. It is HIGHLY recommended that an
Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) be used in conjunction with the device. The Power indicator LED on
the front panel should be red, indicating the device gets the power supply.
2. Turn on the power switch on the rear panel if the device starts up for the first time, or press the
button
on the front panel. The Power indicator LED should turn blue indicating that the unit begins to start up.
3. After startup, the Power indicator LED remains blue. A splash screen with the status of the HDD appears on
the monitor. The row of icons at the bottom of the screen shows the HDD status. ‘X’ means that the HDD is
not installed or cannot be detected.
Shutting down the NVR
There are two proper ways to shut down the NVR.
 OPTION 1: By Standard shutdown
Steps:
1. Enter the Shutdown menu.
Menu > Shutdown

2.3.3 Editing IP Cameras Connected to the PoE or the
Built-in Switch Interfaces
 This section is applicable to DS-7600NI-SE/N(P), DS-7600NI-E1(E2)/N, DS-7600NI-E1(E2)/P and
DS-7700NI-E4/P models only.
 As the adding camera steps for the built-in switch are the same with the ones for the PoE interfaces, we take
the instruction of connecting to the network cameras via the PoE interface as an example.
The PoE interfaces enable the NVR system to pass electrical power safely, along with data, on Ethernet cabling to
the connected network cameras.
For the NVR which supports the PoE function, it can connect to the network cameras directly via the PoE
interfaces. And if you disable the PoE interface, you can also connect to the online network cameras.
Example:
As for DS-7608NI-E2/8P NVR, when you want to connect 2 online cameras and connect 6 network cameras via
PoE interfaces, you must disable 2 PoE interfaces in the Edit IP Camera menu.

it at 9:59:55.
• Post-record: The time you set to record after the event or the scheduled time. For example, when an
alarm triggered the recording ends at 11:00, if you set the post-record time as 5 seconds, it records till
11:00:05.
• Expired Time: The expired time is the longest time for a record file to be kept in the HDD, if the
deadline is reached, the file will be deleted. You can set the expired time to 0, and then the file will
not be deleted. The actual keeping time for the file should be determined by the capacity of the HDD.
• Redundant Record: Enabling redundant record means you save the recording files in the redundant
HDD. See Chapter Configuring Redundant Recording.
• Record Audio: Check the checkbox to enable or disable audio recording.
• Video Stream: Main stream and sub-stream are selectable for recording. When you select
sub-stream, you can record for a longer time with the same storage space.
2) Click Apply to save the settings.
 The redundant record is to decide whether you want the camera to save the recording files in the
redundant HDD. You must configure the redundant HDD in HDD settings. For detailed information,

UPnPTM
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP™) can permit the device seamlessly discover the presence of other network
devices on the network and establish functional network services for data sharing, communications, etc. You can
use the UPnP™ function to enable the fast connection of the device to the WAN via a router without port mapping.
Before you start:
If you want to enable the UPnP™ function of the device, you must enable the UPnP™ function of the router to
which your device is connected. When the network working mode of the device is set as multi-address, the Default
Route of the device should be in the same network segment as that of the LAN IP address of the router.
Steps:

Possible Reasons:
a) Cable between the pickup and IP camera is not connected well; impedance mismatches or incompatible.
b) The stream type is not set as “Video & Audio”.

User Manual of Network Video Recorder
c) The encoding standard is not supported with NVR.
Steps:
1. Verify the cable between the pickup and IP camera is connected well; impedance matches and
compatible.
Log in the IP camera directly, and turn the audio on, check if the sound is normal. If not, please contact
the manufacturer of the IP camera.
2. Verify the setting parameters are correct.
Select “Menu > Record > Parameters > Record”, and set the Stream Type as “Audio & Video”.
3. Verify the audio encoding standard of the IP camera is supported by the NVR.
NVR supports G722.1 and G711 standards, and if the encoding parameter of the input audio is not one of
the previous two standards, you can log in the IP camera to configure it to the supported standard.
4. Check if the fault is solved by the above steps.
If it is solved, finish the process.
If not, please contact the engineer from our company to do the further process.

The image gets stuck when NVR is playing back by single or multi-channel.
Possible Reasons:
a) Poor network between NVR and IP camera, and there exists packet loss during the transmission.
b) The frame rate is not the real-time frame rate.
c) The NVR supports up to 16-channel synchronize playback at the resolution of 4CIF, if you want a
16-channel synchronize playback at the resolution of 720p, the frame extracting may occur, which leads to
a slight stuck.
Steps:
1. Verify the network between NVR and IP camera is connected.
1) When image is stuck, connect the RS-232 ports on PC and the rear panel of NVR with the RS-232
cable.
2) Open the Super Terminal, and execute the command of “ping 192.168.0.0 –l 1472 –f” (the IP address
may change according to the real condition), and check if there exists packet loss.
Simultaneously press the Ctrl and C to exit the ping command.
2. Verify the frame rate is real-time frame rate.
Select “Menu > Record > Parameters > Record”, and set the Frame Rate to “Full Frame”.
3. Verify the hardware can afford the playback.
Reduce the channel number of playback.
Select “Menu > Record > Encoding > Record”, and set the resolution and bitrate to a lower level.
www.NorfolkWire.com
4. Reduce the number of local playback channel.
Select “Menu > Playback”, and uncheck the checkbox of unnecessary channels.
5. Check if the fault is solved by the above steps.
If it is solved, finish the process.
If not, please contact the engineer from our company to do the further process.

No record file found in the NVR local HDD, and prompt “No record file found”.
Possible Reasons:
a) The time setting of system is incorrect.
b) The search condition is incorrect.
c) The HDD is error or not detected.

Steps:
1. Verify the system time setting is correct.
Select “Menu > Configuration > General > General”, and verify the “Device Time” is correct.
2. Verify the search condition is correct.
Select “Playback”, and verify the channel and time are correct.
3. Verify the HDD status is normal.
Select “Menu > HDD > General” to view the HDD status, and verify the HDD is detected and can be
read and written normally.
4. Check if the fault is solved by the above steps.
If it is solved, finish the process.
