David is quite correct.  One of the features you pay extra for when buying Q-See as opposed to a generic DVR is that it will be useless to the thief if it is stolen.  There is no way to reset the password without the assistance of Q-See customer support.

Resetting the unit will not clear the password.

This question comes up frequently enough that there is an EE article on the topic, which will give some more information on how to get in contact with Q-See.

You must contact Q-See Support and provide proof of purchase
