I need help getting the password for our video camera.  I want to rewind the tape.  But it is asking me for a password.  How can I solve this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Nancy,

I might be able to help answer your question.  For a new camera, try the password: admin

Let me know if that works or not.

We see this question several times a month, so there is an EE FAQ article on it.


In brief:  Q-See has made it as difficult as possible to deal with this issue, and that is by design so that a stolen Q-See DVR is useless to the thief.  This is one of the value-added features that makes Q-See worth more than a generic DVR.  The registered owner of the unit can contact Q-See Customer Service at the link in the article above and they will be able to help.
