How to Reset a Samsung Security DVR
« on: June 27, 2017, 09:33:29 AM »
These directions are for owners of the security cameras. We are not responsible for the use of this information.

Why Reset a Samsung Security DVR?
If you have forgotten your admin password on a Samsung Security DVR, most experts would suggest that you have to contact Samsung and/or send it back to Samsung to have the administrator password reset.  While this is true in some cases, it is not always necessary.  Many Samsung Security DVRs have a built-in reset that will allow you to wipe the devices settings and reset the configuration, including the administrator password.  Note that if you perform one of these resets, all settings will be erased and you will have to setup the DVR again.  So you should only do this as a last resort – but to reset an admin password, the last resort is the only option.

Reset Procedures for Samsung Security DVRs
There is more than one reset procedure for Samsung Security DVRs, depending on the series and model.  But in total, this only amounts to a handful.  Since one reset can apply to several different models, I’ll provide the resets here so you can try them on yours – I won’t associate any one reset with a single model, because a complete list of which works with what model Security DVR simply doesn’t exist.  Some of these won’t make sense based on the buttons available on your unit or your remote, so in those cases, just skip that reset procedure.  If you can perform a reset (in other words, if the instructions match what you have available on your Samsung Security DVR and/or Samsung Security DVR Remote), try it, and let us know in the comments if it works and on what model.  If you tell us which model Samsung Security DVR you have, along with your results of each reset procedure, we can compile a complete list of reset procedures by model so that it will be easier for those seeking this information in the future to reset their Samsung Security DVR. Also, if you have a reset that you have used and you know works, let us know and we will add it here.  I will update the list of Samsung Security DVR resets/recoveries as I encounter them.  So if one of these doesn’t work for you, you may want to check back occasionally.  In fact, if you leave your model number in the comments and any specifics about your problem, I’ll try to get that specific reset for you.  For any of these comments, just use the comment section at the bottom of this page – it is checked regularly.

Samsung Security DVR Default Password
For nearly all Samsung Security DVRs, the default password is 4321.  If it hasn’t been changed since setup, then you can just use that to access the DVR.  The default password is included in the reset procedures for completeness.  If you have changed your password or access code for your Samsung Security DVR since it was setup, or if you changed it during the initial setup, use that password in place of the default password.  The password will be the latest password that was set on the DVR.  If no password has ever been set, then it will be the default.

Steps to Reset your Samsung Security DVR
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #1
Reset the unit to factory by pressing both [MODE] and [PTZ] button for 5 seconds
Then enter the 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #2
Reset the unit to factory by pressing both [MODE] and [CH2] button for 5 seconds
Then enter the 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #3
This reset will work on Android based DVRs only.  All steps are performed on the device itself.

Turn the device Off
Wait 2 minutes
Press and hold the following buttons
POWER,
HOME
VOLUME UP
The unit should power on.  Once it does, you can release power.
Use the volume UP and Down buttons to select “Wipe/Factory Reset” from the recovery menu.
Activate the reset using the HOME button.
When the DVR goes through it’s setup again, it will be at factory defaults. The password will be 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #4
This reset will work on SDR models. It may also work on other models.

With just the cameras showing, press the following in quick succession using the remote:
Freeze
Alarm
Freeze
Alarm
Freeze
Menu
Enter
Make sure you press them quickly, one after the other.   If it doesn’t work the first time, try doing it several times.  It can take many tries to get the timing right. If/when it works, you should get a screen that gives you the option to reset.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #5
This reset will work on SDR models where procedure #4 failed.  It may also work on other models.

Press the DVR Button to place the system in DVR Mode
Press:
Freeze
View
Return

For the Samsung SDS-P501

Using the remote control, please press the dvr button, then rapidly press

Freeze>Alarm>Freeze>Alarm>Freeze Return

Once entered at an average pace the dvr will ask you if you want to
load the factory settings.
Select ok and all factory settings will be loaded. This will not
delete any recorded footage
