Hi there,

"NULL" indicates that the password ***** be empty - try leaving the password ***** blank and let me know if you can access the system successfully.

That does not work either that only counts as a strike 1 its not new nd I have a cloud password ***** quite too that's why I need to reopen must reset that's it

Ok, then try unplugging it and remove the small internal battery for several hours (overnight), then put it in and try again...

I got those answers on the Google free help that's why I'm paying u to tell mei how they reset I did 12 hours like that nothing just like right now the batery is out nd its unpluged have u looked up my DVR to see what nd how u really do it I can't call not at 18 more
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

If you do not know the code then removing the battery is the only reset method you can carry out yourself; alternatively you could return the DVR to Elec to have it reset using their factory equipment.

Everything u said I already got nd tried on goggle nd I don't need to pay nobody to tell me I can take it to a shop and I'm not u come up with a sure way of reseting then we r good but what u said so far sounds like u looked it up on goggle
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

This is the correct reset method for most DVR models.

How long did you remove the battery for? You said 30 seconds, but it needs to be overnight to allow the power to drain.

Yea but I waz asking on how to do a reset pass the basic I searched goggle nd yahoo nd u tube all they said r have I tried just wasn't able to find mines Elec tvcc h246 found h246 but not Elecc that's why I went to here
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

Unfortunately there is no other magical answer - you need to reset the memory by removing the power source;

or return the DVR to Elec to have it reset using their factory equipment.
