Lorex eco 130 can not get to menu, screen shows Lorex page

There should be a paper clip size hole somewhere on the back of the unit. If you depress the button in there it should be the reset. The problems sounds to me more of a hard drive issue though.

In my 4 camera surveillance system two cameras stopped working

The screen should say a message similar to "VIDEO LOSS" if it does The power packs or multi power supply to your cameras are easiest to check for starters. Unplug the power to a working camera and plug it into the non working camera close to the dvr. If the camera that didn't work came on, then the power pack is most likely the problem. If it didn't have a message saying "VIDEO LOSS" then it may be the sensor that switches to day/night vision. I have had cameras that when it switches to night vision the screen goes black and unplugging in the power to the camera and re-plugging it in gives it a boost and then comes on. If switching the power from a working to non working camera don't work get the ladder out and unplug and re plug in the connectors at the camera in case it is a connection there. Last if that didn't work would be to take the camera that don't work off and plug it into the end cables to a working camera, if it works then I would suspect the cable to the camera to be bad. Just a process of elimination.

Screen wont show cameras or record

Are you pressing menu button on the monitor or the DVR?
Your problem may not be the cameras, but between the DVR and the monitor. Found this on page Eng-19 of the user manual which I found on
This monitor was set to password lock when you purchase a new set. Therefore, you must first enter a 4 digit password to activate the On Screen Display... the default password is 4321. Not sure if that helps.

try the user as admin and the password as admin..
If my memory serves, there is also a master reset switch..
Look for a small hole in the rear of the case, power the unit off, press and hold a small pin into the hole to hold the switch in and then switch the power back on..
I know ya need three hands to do this...
If no hole is present, check inside the case on the board for the reset switch..

Channel 3/Camera 3 not displaying properly

try swapping the cam inputs first to rule out the unit, if not the camera may be faulty or needs setting up properly with a focus adapter, or the lens could need setting up!
when CCTV company's set up these systems they have all the equipment to plug in and focus auomatically etc..
Hope this helps!
Try looking at (test equipment) section.

Trouble viewing recorded time-lapse recorder tape.

Sounds like the heads on your TLC 2100 Time-lapse recorder are in their last legs. This is normal for those units. The reason you are having those scramble lines towards the top of the screen is because you are not playing at normal play speed.
The problem with the switching between cameras is that the "dwell time" settings is set to high. Most dvr's you can just disable that.
If you are looking to upgrade look here.

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.
