How do I change the combination on SENPL048E sentry portable security safe


Open your Sentry safe by typing the five-digit factory code (found in your owner's manual) on the keypad. It's always a good idea to change your combination while the safe is open, so that you don't inadvertently lock yourself out.
  • Delete any existing codes by pressing the "P" key and entering the factory code, followed by "00000." On older safes, press the "PROG" key and entering your factory code twice to delete old codes.
  • Press the "PROG" or "P" key again on your Sentry safe's keypad.
  • Enter your safe's five-digit factory code.
  • Enter a five-digit code of your choosing within 5 seconds. This is your user code. While the factory code cannot be changed, your user code can be changed as often as you like, and that should be your primary code to open the safe. Only you should know your safe's factory code.

    How do i set code for paragon safe


    INITIAL BATTERY INSTALLATION
    1. Remove the key plate cover, insert the key into the keypad and open the door.
    2. Remove the battery cover plate located on the inside of the door.
    3. Install 4 AA batteries provided and replace the battery cover.
    NOTE
    : If both the red and green lights are on while the safe is open, this indicates that the batteries are low and need
    to be changed.

    TO SET UP OR CHANGE A USER CODE
    1. With the door open, locate the red button on the back of the door near the hinge.
    2. Press the red button and listen for the beep.
    3. Immediately enter your new passcode (3-6 digits long)
    4. Immediately after entering your new passcode, press the "A" or "B" button on the keypad. Your new user passcode is now stored.
    NOTE:
    This safe stores up to 2 passcodes (a user code and a manager code). Entering a third code will erase the
    first passcode entered.

    SETTING UP OR CHANGING A MANAGER PASSCODE
    1. Open your safe with the passcode you wish to change and leave the door ajar.
    2. Press the "0" button on the keypad twice. Press the red button, listen for a beep and then enter your new user passcode.
    New user passcodes may be 3-6 digits long.
    3. Immediately after entering your new code, press the "A" or "B" button on the keypad. Your user code is now changed.
    OPENING THE SAFE
    1. Input your code and then press the "B" button, the green light will turn on.
    2. Turn the knob clockwise within 5 seconds to open the door.
    3. Each key pressed will be accompanied by a buzzer and a yellow flashing light. If the entered code is invalid the yellow light will
    flash and the buzzer will quickly sound, this indicates the code needs to be re-entered.

    CAUTION
    : Entering the incorrect passcode 3 times will lock the system for 20 seconds.

    How can we open a digital safe?


    Normally the safe should have come with a key to open it in the event that the keypad fails. Even if there is no key you can call the manufacturer and supply them with the serial number and they should be able to help you. I had a similar problem where the keypad on my safe failed and the manufacturer sent me a new keypad within two days.

    My lagard lock safe won't open-no battery.


    If internal battery is depleted and will not allow lock to open, hold a new9-volt alkaline battery on the contact points (large battery terminal to
    large keypad contact, small to small) located on the front of the keypad.
    Maintain contact, enter and valid code and turn keypad to open lock.
    Lock contains a non-volatile
    memory, even with batteries removed the lock will retain
    all programming.
    NOTE: You must maintain battery contact at all times throughout the
    entire procedure.

    Sentry 1610 safe. cannot open. I have been using 5 didgit code for many yaers. All of sudden, it won't open. I see green light after pushing 5 digits. I hear the familar sound. But the handle won't turn.


    there are either 4 AA batteries or in some cases one 9 volt battery that has to be replaced .. in some models you slide off the area under the keypad to get at the battery .. .. as the battery ages it has enough current to operate the display but not enough to operate the unlocking mechinism .. once you have it open make sure the mechinism works freely .. if not it may need some non gumming lub .. dont use WD 40 for this ..

    Sentury safe Model MSW3517


    HI , I have the Sentry Safe Model # MSW3517. After 10 months of owning this safe the batterys went bad. I replaced the batterys with new ones and the safe still would not open.I checked online and so many people were having the same problem. I called customer service, Who told me to bang on the safe door with a rubber hammer ( What ever are they talking about ) I studied this safe design and found out that the battery holder went bad.Not making a steady contact with new batterys, Went to my local radio shack store and for ( 1.99 $ ) replaced the factory battery holder and now the safe opens with no problems..Very cheap and simple fix.You will have to cut the 9v battery connector plug off the red & black factory wires to connect the new battery holder for this to work.Very easy to do.. goodluck....
