Re: Search

Having the same problem. Just spoke to samsung [1-800-samsung] They told me to reboot and if it doesn't solve the problem would have to replace the hard drive. They said press mode, 4 and zoom all at the same time and hold for 12 seconds to reboot entire system. Use buttons on unit not remote. Didn't help mine, good luck with yours.

I have a H show up and blinking why?

The hard drive which saves/stores the recorded video is either full or it has died. Try deleting some of the older saved video to gain more space. If that doesn't work you may need to replace the hard drive.

How can I delete data from the hard drive of 'first alert' camera surveillance DVR?

Surveillance DVRs write over the oldest data when the hard drive needs more space.

You do not need to manage that manually. It is all handled automatically by the operating system of the DVR.

Certain cameras are showing the same video.

First you need to isolate the problem. Step one - make sure the video from the cameras is correct - use a monitor and check each input separate. If the video is correct, use one camera and start from input one on the DVR and check all inputs - in other words plug your camera in input 1, check for video to make sure is correct and shows up in the right place, than go to input 2. This way you check your DVR cards. If the video shows up, but in the wrong place - check the settings on the DVR - you might be able to change the physical input in the viewer.Or you might have a bad a search for DVR Doctors in Google - in case you need repair.

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.

Dvr4-alert full screen playback

That's because this is a quad. It compresses all 4 video feeds into 1 file. When you play it back, it decompresses the video and shows you each camera. Playback through this unit is the only way to see 1 camera at a time. 
To be able to copy 1 camera shot to a DVD, this is what you need to do: You need to have a TV with Video in and Video out jacks.  Connect the Quad to the TV Video in jack and connect the TV Video out jack to your DVD Video in jack. Playback a single camera shot on the quad to the TV and hit record on your DVD. - The DVD will record whatever is shown on the TV.
