What firmware version are you on?
Just tried it on a DS-2DF7286-A, but it doesn't work.
It's running on 5.3.8

They dont come with a preset password anymore. You have to "activate" the camera before even using it at all, the activation feature makes you create a password.
Update: reset to factory defaults, now forced to activate.
I wonder who set the password before and why?
btw, this firmware has a reset to default except for ip and users, so you could keep it if you wanted to.

if you bought it off of slamazon, it was more than likely a Chinese version TFTP'ed upgraded to a USA version, I assume they didnt care to or just forgot to default it.
That's a 3000 series camera which are supposedly Asia only lines.
Europe/US/Australasia get the 2, 4 & 6 lines.
Asia are supposed to get the 3 & 5 lines
Just wanted to also say that the SN listed in the picture shows it's a Chinese region camera with the "CH" in the middle. That means Chinese Region and tells you it's running a modified firmware. "WR" is labeled on the US region cameras.
I used to have no problem with the modified version as well, but now over time I'm starting to realize it's not worth it for me or my customers. The primary reason is not being able to upgrade firmware, but now if you lose your password, Hikvision might decide not to help you recover it, and I have started wondering about the quality control of the products going through these gray markets. I've been having a lot of failures start to popup after about a year. Only time will tell if it's the same or not going through Hikvision USA.
