Hello,

Have you tried tried admin/admin and 666666/666666 ?

Expert:  Pete replied 10 months ago.

If that does not work, check if your particular model has a pinhole reset button on the rear.

Expert:  Pete replied 10 months ago.

If it doesn't then you will need to request a master reset password ***** Dahua:
