Optiview Bought a used Optivew DVRH8 and need to reset the password. The unit works fine but the date/time is the wrong time zone and i cant set network up. Any idea how to reset the password on this one? I took the backup battery out for 10 miutes and that set the date back to midnight on Jan 1 2000 ... but still cant get in. Tried the default user and password (admin / 1234) but still nothing.

    Thanks for the options Dave. This DVR has no switch on the back although it does have one on the board, no matter what order i do the 'Switch, Power, Let go" sequence, it doesnt seem to do anything at all. This model has the user name "admin" but the password must be numeric entered from the camera select buttons. It is supposed to be 1234 by default but that is all Optiveiw would tell me. Because I didnt buy it from them, they will not help me. Any other ideas let me know.

Try the user as admin and the password as admin..
If my memory serves, there is also a master reset switch..
Look for a small hole in the rear of the case, power the unit off, press and hold a small pin into the hole to hold the switch in and then switch the power back on..
I know ya need three hands to do this...
If no hole is present, check inside the case on the board for the reset switch..

Have just bought an Elonex ebook colour 705EB and been trying to reset date and time as they are wrong... done as said on Manual go into Settings choose Time and Date setting... change the date and time...


Hope you read this message. I just noticed your message today on this site.
I bought an Elonex 705EB for my mum and had the same problem. It's not pressing the select key that changes the time. You must correct the time then press Menu button on yes (I had to press twice in row before it worked). I don't know why it works different from the manual. I found this out through a lot of trial and error!

Directions for Resetting the Daylight Savings Time (DST) Start & End Dates on the Emerson Research Smartset Dual Alarm Clock Radio on CKS1850


Unfortunately, you can't reset the firmware of the clock for those built before Jan 2006; you can work-around the issue. You will need to change time zones for the few weeks between the current daylight savings start and end dates and the ones that were built into the clock. For details see: http://www.emersonradio.com/dst.htm ; click on the link for Group 1.

If the unit was built before Jan 2006 (the serial number will start with a value less than 6), switch the time zone to the next one further east on the second Sunday of March, then set it back to your correct time zone on the first Sunday of April. Repeat this on the last Sunday of October and the first Sunday of November. (If you are in the Eastern time zone (zone 2), set the switch to zone 1.)

If the unit was built between Jan 2006 and July 2006 (serial numbers that start 601 to 606), then you can change the start and end dates for DST. See: http://www.emersonradio.com/dst.htm then choose the Group 2 link. Press and hold the Alarm 1 button then press the Month/Date or Calendar button. After three seconds the unit will display the start date for daylight savings. Press and hold the Alarm 1 and Month/Date or Calendar buttons. When the display is flashng (within 5 seconds from the press and hold step), press the Down or Set button (depending on the SmartSet mode) three times until the display reads 3 and F2 (alternating with the date of that Sunday).

For the end date, press and hold Alarm 2 then press the Month/Date or Calendar button. Then press and hold Alarm 1 and the Month/Date or Calendar button. Again within 5 seconds, press the Up button or Set until the display shows 11 and F.

If the display stops flashing, repeat and set the new dates faster.

You'll have to repeat this is the battery is removed or replaced.

I hope this helps.

I cant open my yahoo.mail


Check the time zone on your computer versus the time zone in the Yahoo profile they need to match as this could be synch error.

To check the time zone on your PC Double click on the clock in the lower right corner. Then Check the time date year, then time zone.

Wrong date and time


Your GPS receive its date and time from satellites. Take the unit outside and acquire a satellite fix in order to update your time and date. You can set the time zone and time display (12hr, 24hr, UTC) under the unit setting.
