qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
A. When the power-supply cord or the plug has been damaged.
B. If liquid is spilled, or objects have fallen into the equipment.
C. If the equipment has been exposed to rain or water.
D. If the equipment does not operate normally by following the
operating instructions, adjust only those controls that are covered
by the operating instructions as an improper adjustment of other
controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work
by a qualified technician to restore the equipment to its normal
operation.
E. If the equipment has been dropped, or the cabinet damaged.
F. When the equipment exhibits a distinct change in performance —
this indicates a need for service.
15. Replacement Parts

Network
 Transmit Method
– Frame Rate, Image resolution: Set the transmit speed and resolution of video to be transferred to remote system
from the DVR. Transmit speed is the number of images transferred during one second. The higher the transmit
speed is, the more images are transferred. For example, 30 means 30 images will be transferred during one second,
and 5 means 5 images will be transferred during one second. This is supported for analog cameras only.
– SSL: Using the SSL function enhances the security of outgoing data from the DVR by using the SSL (Secure
Sockets Layer) protocol when connecting to the DVR remotely. When using the SSL function, the DVR cannot
be connected with a program or a system that does not support the SSL function. Selecting Standard does not
use the SSL protocol for video and audio data, selecting High uses the SSL protocol for all data.
NOTE: The remote setup to the DVR will be released when changing the SSL setting.
NOTE: Using the SSL function might cause congestion in the system receiving data from the DVR depending on
the security level.
NOTE: This product includes software developed by the OpenSSL Project for use in the OpenSSL Toolkit
(http://www.openssl.org/).

NOTE: The FEN function allows you to connect to the DVR from remote sites using either the dynamic IP
addresses or the domain name. For the FEN function to work properly, the DVR’s FEN name should be registered
on the FEN server, and the FEN server settings should match the settings registered on the FEN server. Any
changes on the FEN server might cause improper operation.
NOTE: The FEN registration is limited to only one FEN server. The DVR cannot be registered to multiple FEN
servers.
NOTE: When FEN function is enabled, it is not necessary to set up port forwarding manually. However, remote
connection to the DVR might not be available depending on the network connection environment of the DVR or
remote system when the FEN function is enabled. If it is the case, you should set up port forwarding for the DVR
manually in the NAT (Network Address Translation) device to which the DVR is connected.

Time sync
In general, each DVR system may have a different time because of the accuracy of its internal clock. The Time
Synchronization function synchronizes the time between a DVR and any time server when they are networked. Any
DVR can run as a time server. Also you can use a standard time server provided by each country.
CAUTION: The time synchronization might not be done properly depending on the time server or network
conditions. Check the time server and network conditions, first.
Run as a server: Runs the DVR as a time server.

Appendix 5 — Troubleshooting
Following are some frequent problems and solutions related to the DVR. Read this section before calling the dealer
or installer.
Problem: There is no image on the screen.
Solution: Check the camera cables. If the Video Loss image is displayed, something is wrong with the camera cable
or power.
Solution: Video might not be displayed on the monitor when connecting a monitor after turning on the system. Reboot
the DVR.
Problem: How do I access Windows?
Solution: To protect unnecessary system crashes, Windows is blocked. Ask your dealer or distributor.
Problem: The logo appears and then freezes. Sometimes the screen is black.
Solution: There is a problem with the Main Board. Reboot the DVR. If it happens often, call your dealer or installer.
Problem: The USB-serial converter has been connected to the DVR for the POS installation, however,
the dialog box asking the device driver appears.
Solution: When connecting the POS device to the DVR using the USB-serial converter, connect the converter while
the DVR is operating. If not, the converter driver may not be operating properly and display the dialog box asking
the device driver during the system boot. However, it does not have any effect on the DVR operation. Remove the
converter, and reboot the DVR and then connect the converter again.
