You need to do a INITIALIZATION/REINITIALIZATION PROCEDURE See below for details Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}

If you are installing the DVR, follow the steps below to initialize
the unit as part of the installation instructions in the Installation/
Operation Manual. This procedure erases all data on the hard disk
drive and is necessary to ensure that there is no data that could cause
improper operation when you try to use it. With a clean hard drive, the
DVR can correctly index recorded video with the correct time and date.
Once the DVR is initialized, you should not reinitialize the DVR
again unless you are having trouble finding and playing back video,
and there is no other solution. If you have to reinitialize the DVR, make
sure the time and date are correct before beginning the procedure.
WARNING: When you initialize or reinitialize the DVR:
• The hard disk drive is erased.
• The password and all menu settings return to their default
conditions.
To initialize or reinitialize the DVR:
1. Press and hold the Function button. The Function Key List
appears. Keep holding the Function button.
2. Press and release the 0 button, and then release the Function
button. Enter the password if requested. The Setup Menu
appears.
3. Using the front panel buttons, enter 1220.
4. A screen appears and asks if you want to continue. Use the
Search (<</>>) buttons to highlight Yes or No to erase the
hard disk drive, and then press the Play/Pause button.
PASSWORD
The default password is 0000. If you change the password, and
then forget it, you can get into the system by using 2002.

Open The Case and inside you will see a battery, silver disk, remove it for 5 mins and reinstall it, power up the DVR and it should be set to factory defaults, the factory default for Speco DVR's is 1234

Set HDD to master


The internal power supply to the HDD is often suspect in these units. Check you have power on the internal plug to the HDD from the circuit board. if you do not Try fitting an external HDD power supply (£15) this cured my unit which had a similar fault.
Hope this helps - good luck.
