Hikvision chinese camera firmware to Enlisch region! 5.2.3

Recommended Posts

I dont know how, but it realy worked for me.

I have chinese camera 5.2.5 only Chinese language in IE , mfdate: 10/2014

Then i got message 'Language version mismatch' in my overseas (European) nvr, so only protocol ONVIF was possible.


I asked the seller if there was a fix.

he send me a 5.2.3 firmware in full Enlisch with region change inside.

So indeed i now youse my camera with Hikvision protocol in my nvr. and all menus are Enlgisch!


i like to share the link with you people: http://www.mediafire.com/download/mrni2uocucai24c/TFTPV523.rar


just to make me even happier i did try an update to 5.3.0

but then i get a message in IE:

Access Error: 404 -- Not Found

firmware language mismatch: /home/webLib

Thnx for the file. What are the steps to revert back from 5.3 to 5.2.3?


Edit: I see the instructions is in the .rar file which says to change PC address to

But do I have to change the IP adress of the camera as well since it's still working and have it's own ip address?

This worked flawlessly! Thank you so much, I've been trying to solve this problem for months.


After the update (no need to change the camera IP if it's set to DHCP) I had to use SADP to get the camera back on DHCP but I now have the drop down again at login for English / Chinese.


Awesome! Thanks again!
