Samsung SHR 1040 DVR 4 channel password problem

By Sharicci

  1. We just set up our new DVR security system. We put in the password from the manual and were told we can then change the password to one more familiar. We we set up some menus. We had a problem changing the password and now cannot get into our system since we do not know our password. There doesn't seem to be any way to reboot and get the default settings back so that we can enter original password code so we can use our system. It seems like if someone forgets his password then there is no way to get into the system. Any ideas to reset the password on this SAMSUNG 1040 without waiting to call Samsung.

    THANK YOU.
