Hi, Afraid to ask, but is it that you need to know how to put batteries in? If so Turn the electronic lock clockwise ( to the right) from the 12 o'clock position to the 2 o'clock position which opens it so you can put in 4 fresh AA batteries replace the assembly by turning it to the left from the 2 o'clock back to the 12 o'clock. enter your combination and check for the green light. Good Luck!

I changed the battery, but my sentry 1610 is not responding. Look like the whole keypad is dead. Can you please tell me is there a secondary battery for the keypad?


Could be the battery holder is bad. A1 Locksmith Burlingame CA 94010 have Sentry safe locks, keys, battery holders, battery door covers, and door handles. But only a small supply in stock.

How to set up th ebatteries in my sentry safe DSW5781?


Locksmiths agree
1. Remove and discard the screw (if
equipped) at the base of the lock case.
2. Turn the electronic lock case to the
right (clockwise), from 12 o’clock to
2 o’clock, and remove.
• Insert 4 new AA batteries (not included) to power
this lock.
• Replace the electronic lock case and turn to the
left (to 12 o’clock) to reassemble.
NOTE: The yellow LED will light when the batteries
need to be replaced.
3. Turn the key (if your safe is equipped with a key
lock) to the right so the lock cylinder pops out.
4. Enter the factory code. When the green light appears, you
have four seconds to turn the handle down to
open. Try this several times before proceeding to
the next step.
To unlock safe:
Enter the 5-digit factory code, a pre-programmed
user code, or a pre-programmed user pin
programming instructions. When the
green LED lights you have 4 seconds to turn the
handle and open the safe.
To lock safe:
Close the door and return the handle to the
horizontal position. For greatest security, depress
the key lock (if equipped) with your finger.

My Sentry S3807 just will not open. I have the combination right and the key, but it won't open. The batteries could be shot, I suppose, but how do I get in?
