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.

Fan spins but it will not start up

Try reset the memory, CPU and check the CMOS battery voltage. ( 3 Volts )

Disconnect the main harness from the power supply before any of the above is completed.

Sometime, the CMOS battery on the Motherboard goes south and sometime just re-seating the memory and CPU will be enough to bring things back to life.
Hope this help you.

Lost bios password which was the serial and dont have it is there a way to bypass


First, remove the case to look at the motherboard, so we can try resetting the CMOS battery. This battery looks a shiny little disk the size of a nickel. Pry the battery free gently, and reinsert the battery after 10 minutes. If this worked and you don't see the password prompt, you don't need any more steps; the problem is fixed. In my experience, two or more additional steps might be necessary depending on the make of the BIOS. Unfortunately, they don't all respond to the same tricks.

Next, now that the case is already removed, locate the jumpers near the edge of the board or near the CPU or the CMOS battery. Once located, find the label that will say clear CMOS, or clear password, etc. Place the jumper over the pins and boot. If this works, no more steps are needed. If it doesn't work, read on.

The third step to try is to enter a password. When you receive the password prompt, try one of the following passwords. If you have an Award BIOS, try these; AWARD PW, ALFAROME, or _award. If you have Phoenix BIOS try, CMOS, PHOENIX, or BIOS.

If none of these things have worked, as a last resort, try a software utility that resets system passwords. These utilities can be found online.

I have a Toshiba 1415 S173 laptop I'm working on for a friend. On AC power, plugged in light comes on, stays green. Battery light will glow amber/yellow while charging, and then glow green when it is...

Once before I had a similar Toshiba come into the shop. Try turning the unit on without the battery installed and on the good Toshiba charger. The computer batteries have a minimal current level and once power has gone below this level they will cause all kinds of problems. If the Toshiba now works, you're home free - just replace the battery. If it doesn't work then it will have to see a reputable repair person who can troubleshoot chip issues. I've seen these clone power supplies do all kinds of things to computers.

Monitor says powersaving mode then shuts off

Try the monitor with another computer.
Does the computer give any beeps when it starts up. A single beep is normal, any more than that you need to let us know what the sequence is. If you are getting no beeps, you either do not have a speaker connected to the motherboard or it could be that the CMOS battery is dead. Most motherboards use a CR2032 button battery, but check to make sure.
Believe it or not it could just be as simple as the CMOS battery, I have seen this many times.
