I have a new home with a Power 632 system that I am having trouble getting the time and date reset on.
From the instruction manual, it would appear that I have a LCD5501Z keypad. However, the keypad itself is labeled on the front "Power 433". Confusing? None-the-less, I am relatively certain that it is a 5501Z.
When I first encountered problems the trouble indicater was on, the armed indicator was on in "away" mode, and the alarm siren activated. I did not have the manual and was unsure what to do, so I turned off power to the unit at the electrical panel. I have since gotten an instruction manual and tried trouble shooting the system.
I turned the power back on and pressed *2 on the keypad. The trouble condition indicated was "8" loss of time and date. I then tried to program the time and date. I pressed *6 40 (40 is the master access code indicated in the manual). At this time the manual says "the program or system indicator will begin to flash, and the armed indicator will turn on. Well, I am not sure what the "program or system indicator" is and I did not see anything flashing. I assume it is the word "program" flasing on the right side of the LCD display. If so I did not see that come on. The "armed" indicator is on and displays "away" mode.
The next step outlined in the manual is to press "1" to select time and date, and the "ready" indicator will turn on. This is not happening.
It would appear to me that the system may not be recognizing the master code "40". Maybe I am not entering it correctly? When I press " *640 ", should I be doing this all at once or should I puase between "*6" and "40"
Please help!! Thanks.
p.s. When I power up the system the "armed" and "trouble" indicators are on. I have tried to enter the master access code "40" to un-arm the system but this does not seem to work either.
