Reset to Inactive to reset your password
This is a quick guide on how to reset your Hikvision recorder back to Inactive status. WARNING : This method is only good for devices that do not have any IP cameras connected to them. Resetting a device back to Inactive status does not reset the password of your IP cameras. If you have any IP cameras connected to the device after resetting to inactive, make sure you do NOT duplicate the password to your cameras.
