Re: How to stop recording,without killing the power?

My record lock is turn off, but every time I press the record stop to stop record it takes me to the password screen where I must enter a password before I can stop the recording....This piece of xxxxx is stink. I hate my Samsung SHR-1040...I cant even talk to Samsung about it.....When I call, they transfer me to India and they dont even know what a DVR is......I told them DVR 10 times, but they keep repeating to me " VCR"

Friedland Evo Wireless Door Chime and Push Problem

While this is a little bit of a stab, if you replace the batteries in both units, do it at the same time, If the batteries are known good ones, simply take them both out and let the units sit for about 5 minutes before you put them back in. Make sure the battery contacts are clean and devoid of corrosion. Put them back together without pressing the button. I assume it is of the newer "self learning" style. In which case, hold the ringer button down until the chiime goes off.

If it is one of the optical greeters, there would be a setup switch position that allows you to focus/align the reflector for the greeter. Usually it keeps chiming until the alignment is correct whereupon it shuts off when things are right. Then you reset the switch to normal. If no switch for set up at all- just follow the same procedure until it stops. You can usually "eyeball" them pretty close without effort.

First you want to clear both Garage Door Openers. To clear the openers you need to locate the learn code button. This button is (usually) under the white lens cover just push it and hold it in until the red light stops flashing then do the same thing to your other opener. This clears out all remote controls that are programmed to these openers. Try the remote to make sure the units were properly cleared. Neither opener should activate if this was done correctly. After units are properly cleared push the learn code button on the opener that you want this remote to open. The learn code led will flash, then press the button on the remote once (learn code goes solid), press the remote a second time ( learn code goes out). Press the remote a 3rd time and opener should activate.

Beeped but we don't even have a gas line!

your thinking along the right line, combo units seldom work as single function units. keep in mind that a CO detector need to be replaced every 5 years on average. look at the date code on the new unit to make sure it reads good until or replace by 2012 of better.

Communication to the opener fails. The little green light on the door opener goes out. It eventually returns and then the door will work again.

Anytime a door opens and/or closes randomly or doesn’t work consistently I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button.

If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door or interfere with the remote signal.

Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.

The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.
Or a remote in someone’s purse that gets the button pushed by other stuff in the purse.

The test is to disconnect the push button wires at the power unit. If the self operation / interference stops you have located the problem. If you reconnect the wires and disconnect the wire at the wall button this will tell you if the problem is the wire or the button.

Not able to play back on the DVR

The ssc duel records with a time signature that allows you to go back to a specific time to view the information on the harddrive. on the front of the dvr there are three buttons and the large round multi button. If you have the unit with vhs backup, then you just press the center small button on the front pannel and you'll get the menu that either allows you to select a time group to watch, or put in the time you want the playback to start. after you start the playback, then you can control the playback with the controls on the large multi function button. If your trying to play back the VHS tape, GOOD LUCK!!!!.....If you have the newer model without the vhs backup...then you have to press the stop button on the large multi function button...andthen press the center small button and then the other small button to the right...then you should be at the menu to play back the video either by selected time/date..or by half hour increments....good luck!!!

Theres a setting in the menu that makes it do that. I think it might be the scheduled record times that you set in it. to get back to the menu ( the smaller button next to the large round multi button), push stop and when the record light goes out (real fast)!!! push the menu button, then you should be able to change the setting in the menu...
