I didn't ask this question to be given a run around and directed to a site saying it would cost money. If someone was able to reset the password ***** then said you will owe that is acceptable but not to pay at first when no answer given!

Hi there and welcome

Sorry about the delay you have experienced

Have you tried the default of admin and 4321?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
it didn't work
Expert:  Richard replied 11 months ago.

ok, pressi both [MODE] and [PTZ] button for 5 seconds

Then enter the 4321

Does it then unlock?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
My husband talked to Samsung tech support and they were rude. Can the DVR box be reset back to factory defaults? We bought the house in April and they left the camera security system and all instructions with a password. But it doesn't work.
Expert:  Richard replied 11 months ago.

yes, but there are a few procedures so we need to see which one applies to your firmware.

Please do the last instructions I gave

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
We tried but it didn't work. There are 8 dim switches on back.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Can the DVR bock be reset?
Expert:  Richard replied 11 months ago.

Thats what we are attempting to see, depending on firmware

press both [MODE] and [CH2] button for 5 seconds

Then enter the 4321

Can you do this, if not what happens?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
We bought a new remote-the homeowner left the wrong remote.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Where is ch2 button?
Expert:  Richard replied 11 months ago.

ok it wont be possible unless you have the correct remote sorry, that you cannot avoid

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Why does the new remote not work?
Expert:  Richard replied 11 months ago.

because the instructions have to be done on the original remote, its the way they made it

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
If someone broke the original remote are you saying a replacement remote could not be obtained?
Expert:  Richard replied 11 months ago.

I have not seen original ones available for sale, due to the machine not being in heavy use, you would need to see if Samsung would send one out to you
