it sound like the system is locked up or your hard drive is going bad. write down all the info on the unit and reset and reprogram the unit. this may solve your problem if not you my need to send it in for repair.

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
Sorry, but there is no way to turn off the compression. That is the just the way a quad works. It compresses the 4 video signals to 1 channel. The only way to get around it is to buy a 4 channel unit. 1 channel per camera.
If it plays back pre recorded tapes then there is nothing wrong with that section of the unit. Does it playback audio and not picture or does it not playback anything.
Also, when trying to playback a recording what is seen of the screen? Snow(black and white dots or wiggly picture?
The unit uses two separate circuits to record and playback tapes. Is any thing else connected to the unit while you are recording? If you are using anything plugged into other ports on the recorder it may not see the camera input causing it to not record anything..
Having the same problem. Just spoke to samsung [1-800-samsung] They told me to reboot and if it doesn't solve the problem would have to replace the hard drive. They said press mode, 4 and zoom all at the same time and hold for 12 seconds to reboot entire system. Use buttons on unit not remote. Didn't help mine, good luck with yours.
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.
