Lost Pin number

I have a Nikkai A52HF PVR and want to format the hard drive to see if it fixes a problem, I bought the PVR second hand and did not get a manual with it so i need to know the default PIN that it asks for before formatting a hard drive. I have already tried the usual 9999 1234 0000 and as suggest by a webpage 8888 can anyone help?

I believe the default unlock code is "888888", not "8888" Try that.

here's a very poor copy of the owner's manual:

Re-Format Pace TDC770D PVR


You can also reset the user settings to the factory defaults.
You use the L, R, U, D and select buttons on either the front panel or the remote control to make the settings. You check and change the settings by looking at your set-top’s front panel. You can also look at the on-screen menus, although please note, in some circumstances these may not be visible.

Hope that helps.........

USB EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE


What format has the drive been formatted in? NTFS or FAT? If it is NTFS it won't work, NTFS is the default format of most modern OS. You need to back up the data and re-format the drive to FAT format and copy the files back on to it.

How to hook up to pvr


I imagine that the PVR does not recognize the formatting on the drive as it ships with the GUID partition scheme, and many of the PVRs probably need FAT32. Since the drive you have is 1TB, then you will need to use a Mac to re-format the drive as Windows can only format up to 32GB in FAT32. p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; } To format the drive for cross-platform or PVR use, make sure that you have backed up all your data from the drive as formatting will destroy any data on the drive. First, connect the drive to your Mac, and open Disk Utility. Then select your drive on the left side of the window and choose the Partition Tab. Then change the Current Partition drop-down menu to 1 partition and click on the Options button. A new window will appear where you will choose Master Boot Record (MBR), then click OK. Then choose Free Space from the Format drop-down menu, click Apply, then OK. Your drive will now appear unformatted. Then choose the Erase tab, choose FAT32 as the Format, name your drive (you will be limited to 11 characters), and click Erase, then OK. Your drive will then appear on the desktop formatted for cross-platform use, and you can copy the data you need to move to your PC or PVR and then connect the drive to your PC or PVR. I hope this helps.

LAPTOP- WHEN YOU TURN IT ON IT WONT OPEN TO THE START PAGE


This is generally the indication that the hard drive has failed and needs replaced. Replace the hard drive, format it, and install a new operating system and you'll be set.
