Same issue here, all four lights on front panel remain lit. It seems to fail the CMOS start up test. Tried using the RESET button inside the unit on the mainboard, it blinks the lights but they remain on. Tried the white switch on the mainboard which made the Alarm and Record lights go out, but unit still does not function. Removed the CMOS battery and did the same RESET. No joy. All four lights come on immediately once plugged in. All three internal status LED's are on indicating working components. At a loss at this point and disappointed because this product has never worked quite right. At least now we know why it was half the cost of other DVR's.

Same problem here, too! All 4 LED's are lit. Turned off the unit for 1-week. Turned it back on. All 4 LED's are lit and no signal on my VGA monitor. Tried using the method of holding down the MODE button and Ch. 2 button both at the same time for 10 sec. No change. Also tried using the remote control holding down the MODE button abd Ch. 2 button both at the same time for 10 sec. Again - nothing. Still looking for a solution before having to send it into Samsung for repair (which I'd like to avoid if at all possible).

Unplug the DVR for 1 minute. Unplug from DVR from the video monitor. Plug back in, all four lights will come back on, then hold mode and channel two for ten seconds. If you just hold mode and channel 2 from the start it wont do anything. Hope this helps.

You can try holding down mode and channel 2 at
the same time for 10 secs. This should reboot the recorder.

You have to hook it up to a tv monitor and change the settings through the menu. It will originally include a password just to get you on, then you will immediately have to change it. After you do that you can access the menu where you can change the output settings

I have a samsung home security shr-1040 and i tried to change my password and i must have put a different 4 digit code than i meant, i am now locked out and cannot access my settings.....please help


The manual says:

Starts recording then stops


The manual says that it can be replaced with almost any standard IDE drive but mine has a Seagate 160GB drive in it so may want to stick with original equipment. Other than tha, any drive SHOULD work.

Connecting the recorder to the security system


If you are hooking your cameras into the SMO-151qn then you can use the pigtail cable to connect to the Shr-1040. Make sure the video out from the SMO-151qn goes into the video in of the Shr-1040. If there is a choice use CH1. On the Shr-1040 hold down the mode button and press CH2 for about 10 seconds. The Shr-1040 should reboot. Once it comes up press the record button. After recording for a feww minutes stop the recording. On the SMO-151qn press the button on the front Live/Vcr. You should see the screen from your Shr-1040. IF you hit play you should see what you recorded. Good Luck!
