Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

That could be a sign of several problems. Do the beeps form a pattern of any kind? if so, please Reply and let me know.

If the Lorex device is connected to nothing, see if it will start up without beeping.

Then try, if it still beeps, to connect it to a good internet connection. The beep may be an alarm about the Internet connection not being good/working.

You may also try disabling the Alarm, which will stop the beeping.

Does the LHV2000 display anything on its screen?

the power light blinks and beeps

That sounds like a total failure of the DVR, unfortunately.

If it still produced anything on the screen, it might just need a good working internet connection. I take it that is not the problem, for sure?

How old is the DVR in question, please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
this is a brand new system. it was purchased in december 2015

Good, in a way: That means it is still covered by the warranty. Generally all manufacturers of electronic equipment (except a few cheaper exceptions which I will not bother to name) offer coverage of their equipment for one year from the purchase date. has their warranty statement here:

confirming that it is indeed for a term of one year.

To contact them, you could use the options on this page:

...I would choose the 'phone icon' for help with warranty replacement or repair, but there are other options.

If this answers your question adequately, please rate my answer. Thanks, ***** ***** luck with it.
