Why does not the DVR: basic reasons and remedies

In fact, the causes of damage to the car DVR, a little. Most often due to a faulty device simply does not turn, may make squeaking noises ceases to record videos or strongly heated. Let's look at the main reasons why DVRs are broken and how to deal with this.

Why do not DVR works: the main causes and remedies

The device does not turn itself off or permanently

If the DVR in your car no longer be switched on or immediately after the shut down has started, it may be caused by such factors:

  • Cranky jack for connecting the power cord into the cigarette lighter or the device itself.
  • The device may not recognize the cable.
  • You are using a faulty cord.
  • "Died" battery.
  • The firmware on the memory card, is constantly trying to upgrade.
  • Use a memory card is incorrectly formatted.

To solve the first three problems can be quite easily-it is necessary to carefully check the serviceability of all the cables and connectors. Once the problem is found, replace the item. If the connectors and cables are OK and you're all checked out, but the registrar refuses to work, most likely, the battery is out of order. It will have to be replaced.

Also, when you upgrade do not forget to remove the firmware file from the USB device. If the card have previously installed firmware version, then at the moment when the device will constantly try to install it again. This leads to failure of the settings and turn off.

Another possible reason for the disconnection of the car recorder derivative is the presence of viruses that can be downloaded with the new firmware. In this case, it is recommended to try to reset to factory settings. On the case of most modern devices have a reset button Reset. Sometimes it may be necessary to press a thin needle.

If, after the problem was not resolved actions, check which class has the card being used. It should be high, that is, the card must have a high writing speed, otherwise it simply will not have time to save videos in high definition. Equally important is the type of the file system, for example, FAT, and not FAT32, because often new devices simply do not support. You can not save when buying a memory card, because even such a seemingly small change may be a factor because of which car recorder permanently disabled and will not function properly.

Record constantly interrupted and the device removes the jerky

It is also worth noting how the possible reasons:

  • Use a card that has a lower class, which are not suited to the registrar.
  • The cable into the socket securely fastened.
  • Turn on the device connected to power.

Set of cheap low-quality cards is perhaps the most common cause of video recording and braking problems. As we have said it is recommended to use a card class 10 and above for modern recorders. If you put a lower class, the video will be produced fragmentary, as the card will not have time to write to the desired speed.

If rickety wire, while driving, he can be constantly switched off and the recording will be interrupted, so the nest should be checked thoroughly and fix if it is very much shaken, it is best to take the unit to repair and change the slot.

Also, do not leave the wire with the power in the recorder. First, it can work well, and then lead to the suspension, which also negatively affects the quality of the recording.

Problems with cyclic shooting

Most modern models of video fixation devices have a function when a new video is recorded in place of the old movies. But sometimes it does not work, and when the place comes to an end, new files are simply not recorded. There may be several reasons:

Not enough space on the flash drive. It is not necessary in order to save recorder installed in the old card from your phone or camera. For road recorder is recommended to buy a USB flash drive capacity of 8 GB, but it is better to 32. To help you navigate, give details on how much time the video can be recorded on different amount of cards.

Card Capacity, GB

Record video as a Full HD H.264, minutes











Change the place of the memory card from one device to another. Here, too, problems often arise, for example, you moved the card from the DVR to automatically create a folder, called the DCIM, where and recorded all the files in the second which creates a folder with a completely different name-MEDIA. This may cause that a cyclic shooting will stop working. The second device will not be able to gain access to the DCIM folder to erase it and record a new video, and in the MEDIA folder may not be enough memory. Therefore, it is recommended before reinstalling always format the USB flash drive.

The card has the wrong file system. Then the decision is also formatted the memory card, then the device will automatically install it needs for the file system.
