GE NX-8V2 and flashing power question
« on: February 08, 2009, 07:09:21 PM »
A GE-NXV2 system came with our new residence which we moved into 3 years ago.  So at exactly the 3 year mark the power led on each keypad started to blink green and the panel service message indicated "control low battery".  So I replaced the stand by battery, A-XCELL 1240, with a new battery, UMB 1250 .  Unfortunately, each keypad is still in the same state with the power led blinking green.  Can one of you experts please point out what else might be wrong?

Thanks
Rick

It takes 12 to 24 hours for the system to run the battery test again.  If that much time has passed already and the low battery still hasn't cleared, then there may be something more obscure going on.

The Caddx system at one of my family members/customers house was doing this a while back after they had a low battery. (Of course, they said the power was out for 5 hours) Then it continued to flash for a low battery for a 35 hours later. When i got there, all I did was enter my code and it reset and everything was back to normal. Try arming and disarming or entering and exiting program mode if you haven't done so yet.

Most brand spankin' new batteries I've hooked in have never been low either. Maybe a defective battery? Or a polarity issue as George described.

Polarity was correct.  I simply armed and disarmed and the power led is no longer flashing.  Thanks guys for such quick responses.  I really appreciate your assistance.
