Hi. My name is ***** ***** it would be my pleasure to help with your issue today. I'm very sorry to hear about your mother. Can you tell me what you are using for a master user and password?

Electronics Technician: Roger, Customer Service replied 1 year ago

There seems to be a way to factory default the settings on this DVR and get it back to the default user and password "User: admin Password: 4321"

To do the factory setting reset on the remote quickly press "freeze,alarm,freeze,alarm,freeze,return" You should get a menu asking if you want to reset the settings to factory default.

Note: I do not have one of these units in front of me. From everything I'm reading this doesn't appear to erase any data off of the hard drive. When you do this process be sure to read the menu that comes up to do the factory reset and make sure that there isn't any mention of erasing recorded video. It would be better to get someone from Samsung on the phone with this kind of issue, but I understand being in a hurry to try and catch the jerks who did this. Let me know if there's anything else that I can do to assist you.

Please rate my service excellent once our conversation is complete. If you don't feel I've provided excellent service, continue to respond and I'll do whatever is necessary to ensure you are satisfied with your service!!
