    1. Hello Cristi!

      Was this an amateur/DIY installation or an installation done by a professional company?

      Maybe the device has been attacked by a malware… what firewall do you use and what rules did you setup to prevent a potential attack?
      Or maybe some power outage affected it’s functionality… did you protect the device with a good, on-line UPS?
      Or maybe it’s just a DOA – dead-on-arrival. Have you thoroughly tested it before using it in a critical security-wise system?

      Please do respond to our questions so we can guide you further. Also, please do understand that we are a 3rd party company that tries to deliver better quality services and support. And, for this service, we require payments.

  5. I have A DHI-HCVR7116H-4M and im in some kind of virtualation mode and cant get out (boots to it) no mouse movement or menus

    1. Hello!

      It might be a hardware issue (disconnect all cameras and HDDs and retry) or a software issue (device infected with some sort of malware) – needs a firmware reflash.

  6. I was upgrading a NVR and lost power during the update, now the system just reboots over and over again is there any way to do factory reset to original factory firmware?

    1. There is an advanced method that can be used to recover the device.
      You can contact your seller or us for further assistance at a cost.
