The following article will help you restore your recorder’s display output to factory default (i.e., lowest resolution) so that you can live view your cameras again on your monitor.
If you have attempted to change the display output of your recorder to a higher resolution (e.g., 4K Ultra HD) but your monitor does not support 4K Ultra HD, there is a great likelihood that your monitor will (1) lose video signal, (2) turn black and (3) lose the live view.
Restore your recorder's display output to default settings
- Unplug your recorder's power adapter from the power outlet.
- While holding down the Info/panic button, plug your recorder's power adapter back into the power outlet. Let go of the Info/panic button once the Lorex logo appears on your monitor.
After the reset, your recorder will display the lowest available resolution so that it becomes compatible with a variety of low-res monitors.
To configure the system’s monitor resolution, refer to the article Changing Your Recorder’s Output Resolution
