I also lost the password to my Hikvision NVR, I was able to connect an older camera and extract the configuration file. I can not decrypt the file, would you provide guidance on recovering the password. Thanks
Hi I have bought Dahua from China DH-IPC-HDBW4631R-ZS) and flashed the wrong firmware (yes, I am an idiot). Since that moment the cam does not "see" the Ethernet. Only option how to flash the cam is to use either serial or via uSD card.
There was very helpful guy (iTuneDVR) who did try to help me, but at the end there was no joy.
Do you think the cam is toss?
Hi, I am from Canada, recently bought a NVR, from an IT company. The company went out of business and closed their local office here. They did not give me the admin password. While I tried to get the NVR into action, I found myself no where to go. The company has no contact for call or email to me. It seems to be an OEM HikVision NVR. I sent the password reset request to HIKVision canada, they said it's a grey market thing and will not help me. Can you please help me? Thanks.
I worked it out in the end, sorry if I was a Dumbo, its my age and lack of messing with stuff like this, I used to be in IT support but that was many many years ago, was good to get my brain working again to be fair, everything is easy when you know how, must congratulate you and everyone else on the excellent instructions and posts that people contribute,
