Hi all

Someone accidentally hit the panic alarm and so my alarm went off, I entered my managers code to stop the sounder. The keypad then said "manager reset required" so I entered manager code and tried to clear message but it wouldn't work at all, so I entered engineer mode and the message went, however now when I try t exit engineer mode the panel "checks for tampers" and says there is a tamper on number 4 however I now there isn't anything connected to number 4 ?! Only circuits 1-3 are used,

Is there anyway around this ? I can still set the alarm and everything else's is as normal but the panel constantly says "engineer mode" and I can't exit it .

Thanks

Jack

Enter engineering code and press esc key, hopefully you know the code :)

Try 112233 plus enter, is generic code, hope it works!

Have you reset the PA Button properly, is it on circuit 4?

Hi

Ye know how to get out of engineer mode but when i enter the code and press esc the panel displays "checking for tampers" it then says there is a tamper on 0004 and therefore it can't exit engineer mode until the tamper is fixed however I know for a fact there isn't anything wired into 0004,

There is just

Door contact 0001
Pir 0002
PA 0003

Since you're in engineer mode just program Cct 4 as Spare and all will be well

Must be a wiring fault or resistor fault.
Check that the terminals are tight, assuming that you have something connected on cct4.

Hmm, Iam not familiar with this particular panel, but I was wondering if you could just omit that zone, or if the tamper loop link had to be physically present.

Thanks all

I set 0004 as spare but that didn't help it still says there is a tamper on it, I also omitted the circuit again that didn't help, I can only imagine that there is actually something on circuit 4 that is causing the problem I'm so sure that there isn't but it seems the only logical explanation

Ok so found out 0004 isnt a zone or circuit at all, it means AUX Tamp on the bell box, will have a look later. thanks
