SOURCE: can't record anything....dvr won't recognize blank

Not sure, but could be as simple as switching to a dvd-rw disc. Not all recorders recognize all formats.

SOURCE: Can I get my recordings off a HD DVR with a damaged hard drive?

Sorry, no. Not unless you have a working unit you can put the faulty drive in, but as you say, it's faulty... by its nature a faulty drive isn't useable.

SOURCE: I want to record to a external hard drive in order to take to Ira

If you have a dish network system as listed in post a DVR 625 this is NOT possible, it will only work with VIP series Dish Network recivers. and they must be used on teh same model reciever such as Vip 722, tranfer to EXT HD then Watch on another 722!

SOURCE: dvr will not record. i get the message, " hard

You can erase the contents of the drive or set the drive to overwrite when full. Erasing the drive is the equivalent of reformatting (you will not be able to recover the images easily).

To Erase/Format, enter the Menu system and select Hard Drive Setup (seventh line in the list). Press Enter, then go to HDD Format (fourth item in the list) and press Enter. Then enter your password (set up under System Setup) but the default password is 111111, if it is on. If you entered the correct password, the screen will flash HDD Formatted 3 times. Press Menu to exit the menu. (If the incorrect password was put in, Incorrect Password will flash.)

To overwrite, again go to Hard Drive Setup then select the first item, Drive Full. Press Enter to toggle Overwrite On or Off. You will be able to recover the images until they are overwritten.

I hope this helps.

We can't get are zmodo to record.


If it was recording OK before i.e. you have had it set up for a while, then the hard drive has failed. It will still give you a picture but not record it.
It is easy to change, just plug a new one in and run the set up routine in the hand book or check it out a Zmodo

How to hookup audio to home security sys


do you have audio cameras, they don't usually give you the audio cameras with a standard setup, on the back of the dvr there is a plug for audio its either a phono plug or a mic input socket, this can be used in one room or outside depending on the mic you have to buy. you then wire this up to the cctv and have to setup the sound to the camara number.

How to hook up audio


Connect a microphone and enable the audio. It should all be in the settings. Check each camera to make sure audio is enabled. Usually it is off by default.

Zmodo blinking hdd light


A blinking HDD light means it is reading/writing; under normal conditions anyway. Just means that it's being accessed, that's all.

Now if your TV screen is also BLANK, then you have the same problem I do... I'm just waiting on a reply. Mine is the Zmodo ZMD-DX-SBN8 but should be similar enough, I think.
