1.Check the Time Zone Settings

One of the most common reasons why your DVR/NVR system may lose time is due to incorrect time zone settings. If your system is set to the wrong time zone, it will not be able to accurately keep track of time.

To check the time zone settings, go to the system menu and look for the time and date settings. From there, you should be able to adjust the time zone to match your location.

 

2.Replace the CMOS Battery

Another common reason why DVR/NVR systems lose time is due to a dead or dying CMOS battery. The CMOS battery is a small battery located on the motherboard that is responsible for keeping the system clock running even when the system is powered off.

To replace the CMOS battery, you will need to open up your DVR/NVR system and locate the battery on the motherboard. The battery should be easy to spot and can be removed by gently prying it out of its socket. Replace it with a new battery of the same type and voltage, and your system clock should start working properly again.

 

3.Check the Power Supply

Sometimes, DVR/NVR systems can lose time due to issues with the power supply. If the power supply is not providing a consistent voltage to the system, it can cause the clock to lose time.

To check the power supply, you should use a multimeter to test the voltage output. If the voltage is not consistent, you may need to replace the power supply to fix the issue.

Conclusion

Losing time on your DVR/NVR system can be a frustrating issue, but it’s usually an easy fix. By checking the time zone settings, replacing the CMOS battery, and checking the power supply, you should be able to get your system clock running smoothly again.
