    OK but what can I do, to fix it, The Home menu is not working for the DVD as well. How can I change the hard drive, is it simply removing the old one and inserting a new one.

The hard drive has failed. You should be able to replace it under warranty if present, or have it serviced by a local computer store. Replacement of the drive is fairly simple and should not cost much.

    That is correct. The hard drive can be replaced with one of the same model. It is a fairly simple procedure of opening the unit (unplugged from mains) and replacing the drive. It should be the same or similar to a PC hard drive.

How to reset my pass word on my Samsung Security Video System SDH-B74041


For nearly all Samsung Security DVRs, the default password is 4321. If it hasn't been changed since setup, then you can just use that to access the DVR. The default password is included in the reset procedures for completeness. If you have changed your password or access code for your Samsung Security DVR since it was setup, or if you changed it during the initial setup, use that password in place of the default password. The password will be the latest password that was set on the DVR. If no password has ever been set, then it will be the default.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #1
  1. Reset the unit to factory by pressing both [MODE] and [PTZ] button for 5 seconds
  2. Then enter the 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #2
  1. Reset the unit to factory by pressing both [MODE] and [CH2] button for 5 seconds
  2. Then enter the 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #3 This reset will work on Android based DVRs only. All steps are performed on the device itself.
  1. Turn the device Off
    Wait 2 minutes
    Press and hold the following buttons
    • POWER,
    • HOME
    • VOLUME UP
  2. The unit should power on. Once it does, you can release power.
  3. Use the volume UP and Down buttons to select "Wipe/Factory Reset" from the recovery menu.
  4. Activate the reset using the HOME button.
    When the DVR goes through it's setup again, it will be at factory defaults. The password will be 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #4 This reset will work on SDR models. It may also work on other models.
  1. With just the cameras showing, press the following in quick succession using the remote:
    • Freeze
    • Alarm
    • Freeze
    • Alarm
    • Freeze
    • Menu
    • Enter
  2. Make sure you press them quickly, one after the other. If it doesn't work the first time, try doing it several times. It can take many tries to get the timing right. If/when it works, you should get a screen that gives you the option to reset.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #5 This reset will work on SDR models where procedure #4 failed. It may also work on other models.
  1. Press the DVR Button to place the system in DVR Mode
  2. Press:
    • Freeze
    • View
    • Return
As with Procedure #4, you may need to press Freeze, View, and Return in in quick succession a few times to get it to work. The timing can be tricky.
These reset procedures cover many Samsung Security DVRs, but not all. I will add reset procedures to this article as they become available to me. By design, Security DVRs are made to be secure, and not all of them can be reset by the consumer. If you have an urgent need related to your Samsung Security DVR, you should contact Samsung directly at their support page Samsung Support, or by calling: 877-349-3149. For less urgent matters, you can email them directly at Email Samsung Support. Support is available 7 days a week, 9:00 am - 9:00 pm EST.

Dyk4500 how to fACTORY RESET


The PW or code to enter with the remote is 12888. You MUST have a remote, or the unit is worthless. The remote may not look exactly like how it appears in any manuals. My remote is the original and it was a stark difference in appearance, although having all the correct and needed buttons.
Code may not initially work, depending on how any configurations may have previously been setup. Try the following steps to reset configuration.
  • Remove the 3 screws to open the unit up.
  • Remove the CMOS button battery.
  • Short the battery contacts for 30 seconds. (I also tested shorting the contacts while powering the unit on to see if that had an effect. It will not damage the unit, and it also reset the DVR, but I recommend only doing the power on method as a last resort.)
  • Insert CMOS battery.
  • Power unit on and wait for display to show firmare version and all HDD info. after about 30 seconds the cameras and locations should appear. If they do not, Press 'MENU' 2x times, and wait for the cameras and names to appear.
  • Press 'MENU' on remote. When menu appears, press 'DOWN' 2x times to get to setup utility and press 'ENTER'
  • You should see an "Admin" and "guest" accounts. "admin" should be already highlighted, but if it is not, use the directional buttons to highlight the "Admin" account and press 'ENTER'.
  • Enter the code 12888 and press 'ENTER'.
  • You should now have the Utility Menu to reset the unit, add new accounts. adjust network info, etc.

Dvr stuck on ''receiving satellite info'' when reset.


When it's rebooting, on the first blue screen press 02468 on the remote. This will force a software update. If you have trouble getting it enter at the right time or you just want to make sure, just keep pressing 02468 until it goes to the update. It won't hurt any thing. Hope this helps.

Disk format


1) Turn on machine
2) Open Tray
3) With tray still open hold the reset until the tray closes.
4) Tap the reset once.
if there is a format disc error, it says "Please insert a Playstation or Playstation 2 format disc." It is accompanied by a sound similar to the browser, but with a more tense noise. This is caused by a disc being so badly scratched that it completely fails to recognise the format, or if there is a problem with the laser. Auto-Diagnosis (PlayStation 2 system) 1. Turn on the system without a disc inside. 2. Once at the Main Menu, press the triangle button to enter the Version Information Screen. 3. Highlight the "Console" option, and then press the triangle button again. 4. Next, press the X button, highlight "On", and then press the X button once more. 5. Now press the circle button twice to return to the Main Menu. 6. Press the eject button on the front of the console, and insert a disc. 7. Now close the disc tray, but DO NOT reset the system. 8. Highlight the Browser option from the Main Menu, and then press the X button. 9. In the Browser, an icon of the disc should appear on the screen. Highlight this icon, and then press the X button to read the disc. 10. If the auto-diagnosis is successful, the disc should load properly at this point.NOTE: The auto-diagnosis feature will return to "Off" the next time a disc is inserted.
