Connecting the power cord
Factory reset switch
The DVR has a factory reset switch to the left of the VGA connector on the rear
panel. This switch will only be used on the rare occasions that you want to return
all the settings to the original factory settings.
When using the Factory Reset, you will lose any settings you have saved.
To reset the unit, you will need a straightened paperclip:
Turn the DVR off.
Turn it on again.
While the DVR is initializing, the front panel LEDs will blink.
When the front panel LEDs blink, poke the straightened paperclip in the
unlabeled hole to the left of the Alarm Output connectors.
Hold the switch until all the LEDs on the front panel are lit.
When the DVR successfully resets to factory defaults all the LEDs on the front panel flash five times.
Release the reset switch.
All of the DVR's settings are now at the original settings it had when it left the
Power cord connector
Connect the AC power cord to the DVR and then to a wall outlet.
Route power cords so that they are not a tripping hazard. Make certain the
power cord will not be pinched or abraded by furniture. Do not install power
cords under rugs or carpet.
The power cord has a grounding pin. If your power outlet does not have a
grounding pin receptacle, do not modify the plug.
Do not overload the circuit by plugging too many devices in to one circuit.
Your DVR is now ready to operate. For information on configuration and operation
please refer to the Configuration & Operation Manual.
