    Hikvision camera admin password reset tool

    I believe you are looking at an entirely different approach to recovery of the password than that described above, so cannot comment However Alistair or gdwasw will be able to put you straight. Good luck and may you soon be running again

    Hi all -just a note to say "Thanks to all who contributed to the solution" My particular appreciation to Alistair and dgwasw, both of who hung in till the end. Sorry, I swapped forums to the HIK Vision camera site without leaving any connection but the name of the new tread I came into was...

    Congratulations to both Alistair and dgwasw for a job well done! My heartfelt thanks go out to these two gents and anyone else who has contributed to the knowledge base which now sees my "post security upgrade" by HIK Vision CCTV system back on track, fully functional, nothing bricked and a now...

    Hmmmm……… well, I got the 8th camera back yesterday from my tech - not a happy man, said he "did not like my attitude" since I had put the hard word on him to return the camera after two failed delivery dates passed, I even offered to come to him and pick it up, all politely. I suspect he was...

All seven cameras in my possession now running again thanks to the patience and perseverance of Alistair and "my new best friend in Aussie"- dgwasw He took me through all the steps, one by one, never doubting we could make this happen - and we did, so thanks very much guys, you saved...

    That's great guys, private message sent to dg. I have just spoken to my local tech who is pleased I may have some help to make the cameras work, said it was very easy to make "bricks" He is going to pick up the camera I loaned him from storage and return same over the next few days. And clearly...

    Hi Alistair and dgwasw. First thanks dg, and yes that is my camera in every respect, right down to the firmware. So where to from here? I note you are going to a remote location tomorrow -and possibly "off grid"? I shall contact my Tech here in Brisbane and let him know I am putting everything...

    dgwasw - that is a most generous offer from you, and I shall only use it as a last resort so as not to take advantage of your good self. The price of the cameras is probably about right, I purchased the two x 2.8mm on a separate order before things went "pear shaped", but add to that the cost of...

    Alistair - no problems, you are so much help to people, I don't know how you do it! A wee bit of background on my cameras and NVR: They were purchased for me "on line" over the internet from a company that showed a Sydney Australia Address so we wrongly assumed with a 7 day delivery anywhere in...

    Also, just read the link you gave to "lots of firmware choices here, only to find my cameras are not listed here unless I am going blind (a distinct possibility - awaiting eye surgery) Not trying to be difficult but perhaps you put the reply to the wrong thread? :)

    I am confused (again) You say these are mini- dome cameras? They are surely HIK Vision 5mp Turret cameras, not mini, not dome Then your edit adds that they are RO cameras - what does that mean please? Definitely has been no discussion about him getting / keeping the old cameras

    Alistair - the original packaging labels (attached) have the serial numbers on them as per the SADP's reading of the devices serial number They all identify the model as "DS-2DC2352-1" for both 2.8mm and 4mm cameras I suspect the "-1" component of this is the first number of 12017707...… as in...

    Hikvision camera admin password reset tool

    Made contact with my Tech this morning - his "expert" had already tried the tftp updater on the camera he took away - it does not work! Sad but true, so he is going to do me a special price for new cameras under the LTS security brand as sold in the USA, he said he uses them all the time and...

    Thanks Alistair, it is nighttime here now so I will remove a camera in the morning and try to follow your instructions. At worst I turn it into a brick, and it aint worth anything as it is so not a lot to loose. I previously purchased a 12 volt supply -probably on prior advise from you I think I...

    Hi Guys. Yes, I think we have been down this or similar path but anything to save "junking" over $1500.00 worth of cameras Please see attached copy of all cameras and NVR detail To recap, I have used two separate gentlemen, both of who started out very confident they could fix the problem...

    Like Maxwell Smart says "missed by that much" - my build on all 8 cameras was 5.4.5 and so the story goes, seems I have no choice after this much time but to bin all 8 cameras and buy new ones. Something this pensioner is not well pleased about causing me to hang off the decision as long as...

    Hikvision camera admin password reset tool

    Yes, tried Show camera password, got the request for admin password and when I entered the "new" (only one I know) password it was rejected as incorrect My Tech is unwilling to flash the software, presumably because he may "brick" the cameras and has said this does not have a high probability...

    Hikvision camera admin password reset tool

    Thanks Alistair - I shall report back to my professional and see how he wants to proceed. Cameras do not transmit a picture but they have IR lamps glowing and we can download all model/serial number info and they show as "active" With the password recovery package from Hikvision I was able to...

    Hikvision camera admin password reset tool

    Hi Alistair, sorry for the delay but I was back in hospital again and a little pre-occupied one way or another. Back fully (well nearly) functional again and someone suggested I talk with a "local" distributor for help, I did and he provided a new file to replace the password in the NVR, now...

    Back on topic - password issues with NVR and cameras. I visited this site months ago and was offered help by Alistair Stevenson but being illiterate in matters IT, I handed it over to my son who was unable to assist. Since then I have left the system powered up as this keeps the IR lamps lit up...

    Sorry, I have been unwell and such things have taken a back seat for the moment. Hope to be up to doing things again by next week, thanks for your interest

    Alastair you are a gem! With that much detail how can I fail? To be doubly sure I will still engage help through the process but it all looks very positive, thank you so much! I will check how soon my son can assist me and get right into it. The NVR packaging tells me the SF version is...

    This has me completely whacked - don't have a clue what I am doing. Followed Marku2 and tried my Google browser, just got all sorts of explanations of what a private IP address was. One even said this was a "bogon" address that should not be on the internet -what am I doing wrong?:embarrassed:

    Attached is the information contained on the side of the box which held camera last on the previous list. It may be of no significance at all but thought I would post it for reference. Did some playing around with the NVR today and discover that I seem to have the right password to view the...

    Failure has brought me here

    OK Alastair, your description of the problem is accurate - I have no idea what any of the passwords might be - either NVR or Cameras And since I now understand the need for a specific IP on my PC that also seems the path to follow but I will need guidance. A quick look on Google and I found all...

    Alastair you are starting to scare me, this is going deep into Indian country and I don't know if I want to be there without the cavalry? I thought the problem was with my NVR password - why then would I start changing the IP address of my PC? Just to focus on the original problem for a moment...

    Failure has brought me here

    Marku2 asked about encryption and I am un-aware that such was done, we never got that far because we did not have the password to perform the connection Just looking now using SADP and I see a heading "encoding channels" and under that the number "0" - is this the same thing?

    Failure has brought me here

    The difference was probably a typo on my part - I wrote all the data onto a spread sheet as I could find no way to copy it out of SADP. Also, I have examined these cameras closely for any form of reset button and there is none As for my son (the electrician) writing passwords for the cameras, he...
