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.

When using the NVR to get the live view audio, there is no sound or there is
too much noise, or the volume is too low.
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”.
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 Convision to do the further process.
180 User Manual NVR‐1600‐PoE ______________________________________________________________________________  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.
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 Convision to do the further process.
