    I have a Samsung shr 1040 for about 3 years. I am getting live pictures on the 4 channels, but is not recording. I cannot access the recorder to erase the HHD. The password I have does not work. The blue power light is solid, the green hdd light is flashing, and the red record light is solid. I cannot access to view recordings. Help. Mike

I think I can offer a solution. The unit is set up from the factory with television input enabled. You'll need VGA input enabled. Hook it up to a TV; go to setup in the menu and enable VGA. Then you'll be able to use your monitor.

Best to get a USB thumb drive and download the video needed to the thumb or flash drive. Put it on the computer and there you can use a program like Snagit to capture the best parts and save it for police. Saves a lot of wasted time

Samsung shr 1040 4 channel dvr

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

Clock battery has failed

Yes, I can to slove this problem.
I'm not english people then excuse me for my english. You need a telnet software type hyperterminal in Windows XP, a PC with serial port and a pin-to-pin serial cable. For frist time you need replace the internal battery CR2032 3V of SHR-2042 and erase all content of Hard disk. If you can't erase HD is not a big problem
Connect SHR-2042 with serial cable, open Hyperterminal and create a new connection using this setting:
Speed = 115.000
Bate bit = 8
Parity = nothing
Bit stop =1
Floe control = nothing
Save connection and run it.
Power on shr-2042 and set time and date.
Type "help" for command list

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!
