Lorex-edge model no lh314 series will not record and beeps and says hdd is not installed


You need top open the top of the case by removing the screws and check to see if the hard drive is operating (it will be warm to the touch and may be making a slight noise). If the hard drive is not working, verify that it is plugged in. If the hard drive is bad, you can replace it with a SATA hard drive. The Lorex system will see the new hard drive and ask you to format it for use with the system.

Dish Dvr 612.. I accidently deleted my recordings. How do I recover


esriniv

If you have deleted your recordings from your 612 receiver, there is not a way to retrieve those recordings. To prevent this from happening in the future, you can connect an external hard drive to the receiver and transfer the recordings to the external hard drive. I have provided a link with more information about an external hard drive. I hope this helps.

Trouble with my recorder on screen display show HDD Fail and when we try to play is blank what we must to do.thank you regard riyanto


The hard drive for the recorder is bad. That's why nothing plays during playback. The DVR can't get the video off the hard drive. You'll need to send the recorder in to be repaired and the hard drive replaced.

ViP211-HD DVR button won't work.....can't record any channels.....also the 'record' button doesn't respond either......


Hello, my name is Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network. I'm sorry about any inconvenience, but the ViP211 is not a DVR receiver. If you have an external hard drive, you can activate the feature on the 211 to allow you to record movies to the external hard drive. It is a one time $40 to activate the external hard drive feature. Also, we can always look at getting a DVR receiver installed to replace the 211. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me at matthew.gonzales@dishnetwork.com.

Can the progams on a DVR hard drive be saved if the unit is not functioning and has to be replaced? If so, what do I need to do? Please advise.


Hey there! Anthony Thomas with DISH Network Customer Service. Unfortunately when a hard drive goes bad or the box itself won't power up, there is no way to recover the recordings. If a hard reset has not helped (unplugging the receiver for a bit and then plug it back in), then the receiver must be replaced to become operational and the recordings are lost. Not good news, but I hope this helps.

You may want to see what it would take to upgrade to a VIP HD DVR, as those can allow an external hard drive between 50 GB and 1 TB to "back up" recordings (activating the feature costs $40). When backed up though, should the receiver ever need replaced it would not be so devastating as the recordings are safely on the external drive, not to mention you can subscribe to HD! When considering the HDD to purchase, this link may help. http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/setup-ehd

Tech support tells me hard drive failed. but I need valuable recordings off the drive. How do I get that?


Hello, this is Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network. If the hard drive on the receiver is faulty, there is no way we can guarantee the recordings would be able to be transferred off the receiver. However, if you wish to back up recordings in the future, you can hook up an external hard drive to the unit, it is a one time $40 fee to activate the service on the account. With an external hard drive, you can transfer your recordings from the receiver to the EHD, that way in the future if the receiver goes bad, you have the recordings on the external hard drive. Hope this helps.

I can not put a desired event on recording thru"create timer"scre


aparfenov

The receiver hard drive is comparable to a computer hard drive. When a problem is detected with the hard drive, the receiver will give an error message stating a problem has been detected. Depending on the severity of the problem, sometimes it will show that unplugging the receiver for 1 minute will resolve the issue. Other times, a message will state that the hard drives needs to be reformatted, which will erase all content on the hard drive. It sounds like this is what happened to your recordings. If unplugging the receiver did not resolve the issue, we may need to replace the receiver. Please call 1-800-333-3474 and speak to a Technical Support agent.

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!

Recovery of content on DVR-625 hard drive


usually hard drive failure boils down to files not opening succesfully, or a random internal failure, not a physical issue with the hard drive, however because dish network repairs these issues on a large scale the fix is to wipe the software and start over which means all recordings are lost, unfortunately recovering these recordings is basically impossible... if you often record things which are imperative to your business i would suggest getting a 622/722 dvr which will allow you to download these recordings to an external hard drive via usb, you will have unlimited use uploading and downloading programs for a one time fee of about 40$
