  1. I am using Hikvision DS-7208HQHI-F1 DVR with 8 cameras. Everything was fine for 1 year. I am working in UAE and system is installed at my home in India. Later my DVR stopped recording because of hard disk bad sectors. Then I was able to watch the live view only. After sometime, I lost network connection to my DVR and was not able to watch it through my mobile app. I contacted Hikvision support, they sent me a link to download new firmware. Later when I reach my home, i sent the hard disk for warranty replacement. And DVR was working without HDD. Then I thought upgrading the firmware. I upgraded it successfully, then rebooted. Then my DVR makes continuous long beep. I know it is because of no hard disk. And finally I received the new hard disk last day. But my DVR does not make any diaplay and keeps restarting. I just tried removing the hard disk connection, display came with camera view, but I was not able to use my mouse. And again DVR keeps restarting. I contacted Hikvsion support, but no response from them. Now I have only 10 days remaining before my travel. I need to fix . Please help.

    Hikvision DS - 7200 CCTV Install

    It will not be a problem if you pull the cables through outside, but better pull it through a wiring pipe, like used for electrical cables. And 7200 is not wifi enabled, LAN cable should be connected to DVR.

    Camera makes No Video frequently

    Hi All, I am a new member of CCTV Forum. I have Hikivsion 7208HQH1 DVR and DS-2CE16D0T-IRP cameras installed at my home in India. Everything was working perfectly. Suddenly one of the camera (A5) stopped showing video. The screen says no video, but IR LEDs are glowing on camera. After two days it started working without doing anything. And it was running for 1 week and the same thing happened. It stops working and then starts working after sometime. I checked the power at camera end, it was fine. I changed BNC and DC connectors at both ends, camera started working, and stopped after 2 days. I changed the port of camera dc connector on powersupply, same result. I changed cable.. same result. Finally I bought a new camera and fixed at same location (A5) and installed the problematic camera at a new locatoin (A7). A5 is working without any problem, but A7 makes the same problem.. So I finalized that it is problem with camera. I contacted with HikVision, they asked me to change cable, connector, etc.. I said I did it already. I am ready to send it to service center, but the problem is if they connect it, it will work for few days without any problem, and they will return it without fixing it. Is there anything I can do from my side, with the help of esteemed forum members?
