7. Troubleshooting
If you have problems with the system, run through the following checklist to see if you can solve
the problem.
1. Q: What can I do if the system does not detect the HDD?
A: Check if the power supply system is properly connected and power cord and power cables are
securely connected, and if something wrong with the HDD interface. Or you may check if your
HDD is supported by referring to the specifications or descriptions.
2. Q: I have changed the password but forget the new password, how can I access the system?
A: If you forget system password, please consult with our technical personnel. We strongly suggest
user to set password easy to be remembered and relatively safe. If you have safety requirement,
please do not set too simple password, such as 000000.
3. Q: We see abnormal video signal or even no video signal by connecting the NVR and camera
together. Power supply for both devices is OK. What is wrong?
A: Check network cable at NVR side to see if the cable is firmly connected and if it is worn out and
needs to be replaced.
4. Q: How to prevent NVR from being influenced by heat?
A: The NVR needs to dissipate heat while it is running. Please place the NVR in a place with good
air circulation and away from heat sources to ensure stability and life of the NVR.
5. Q: The remote control doesn’t work while the monitor screen is OK and panel keys are
functional. Why?
A: Operate again by aiming the remote control at the IR receiver on front panel. If it still doesn’t
work, please check if the batteries in the remote control are running out of power. If not, check if
the remote control is broken.
6. Q: I want to take out HDD from my PC and install it in NVR. Can it work?
A: All HDDs supported by the system can be used. But remember, once NVR runs, the data on your
HDD will be formatted.
7. Q: Can I playback while recording?
A: Yes. The system supports the function of playing while recording.
114
EPRO NVR Series
8. Q: Can I clear some records on HDD of NVR?
A: In consideration of the file security, you may not clear part of records. If you want to remove all
the records, you can format HDD.
9. Q: Why can’t I log in NVR client?
A: Please check if the network connection settings are correct and RJ-45 port is with good contact.
And check if your account and password are correctly input.
10. Q: Why can’t I find any records during playback?
A: Please check if the data line connection for HDD is OK and system time is properly adjusted. Try
a few times and restart. If it still doesn’t work, check if the HDD is broken.
11. Q: Why doesn’t dynamic detection work?
A: Please check if the motion detection alarm setting at IP camera side is correct and if the
sensitivity is set too low.
12. Q: Why doesn’t alarm work?
A: Please check if the alarm setting, alarm connection and alarm input signals are correct.
13. Q: Why does buzzer keep alarming?
A: Please check the alarm setting, check if motion detection function is enabled and object motion
is detected all the time and if I/O alarm is set as Always Off. Besides, refer to corresponding HDD
alarm setting.
14. Q: Why can’t I stop recording by pressing “STOP” button or click “Stop Recording” in context
menu?
A: Pressing Stop button can only stop manual record. If you want to stop Scheduled recording in
certain time quantum, please change the setting to No Record. To stop Startup recording, please
change record mode to scheduled recording or manual recording. Then you may stop recording by
the prescribed methods
