Xvim Camera Not Recording
Misconfiguration, lack of storage capacity, and malfunctioning DVR components are major explanations if your CCTV camera is working fine but the DVR is not recording anything. Don’t worry: today’s DVR units are user-friendly and simple to troubleshoot.
- Make sure that recording is turned on. It may seem self-evident, yet it occurs. The DVR box may cease recording without your knowledge if you return a device to its factory settings, or if the settings became damaged and were automatically returned to factory defaults.
- Check your CCTV and DVR settings to make sure that recording is turned on permanently, or at least for the time you’re troubleshooting. Some devices may be set up to exclusively capture footage at specific intervals.
- Make sure your DVR’s recording media has enough storage capacity. Remove any video that you don’t require.
- Check the network connections of your DVR if it uploads footage to a network server or a cloud account. It’s possible that its local storage is full.
- The hard drive in your DVR might be deteriorating. Because many DVRs contain a limited on-board Flash storage for their software and solely use the hard drive for recording, your DVR may continue to operate even if it can no longer save footage.
