Re: Clock battery has failed

Yes, I can to slove this problem.
I'm not english people then excuse me for my english. You need a telnet software type hyperterminal in Windows XP, a PC with serial port and a pin-to-pin serial cable. For frist time you need replace the internal battery CR2032 3V of SHR-2042 and erase all content of Hard disk. If you can't erase HD is not a big problem
Connect SHR-2042 with serial cable, open Hyperterminal and create a new connection using this setting:
Speed = 115.000
Bate bit = 8
Parity = nothing
Bit stop =1
Floe control = nothing
Save connection and run it.
Power on shr-2042 and set time and date.
Type "help" for command list
mor more istruction contact me

Indoor plug in device works fine but doorbell isn't despite changing batteries.

Salutations Helen Wahlen,

If you DO NOT have a RESET procedure in the MANUAL... Remove ALL power from both units... (battery from the base ...if equipped).

Re-Plug the base unit close to where the button is mounted
and restore all batteries & power and start the INSTALL instructions from the beginning.

Failing that.. DISCLOSE what in the world we are discussing (make, model... year, etc) and we can give it more appropriate attention... (resulting in better advice),

Happy hunting!

Simon 3 - 6 beeps every 4 minutes or so

I had a problem just like your a few days ago. You see on the back of the alarm there is a red cable unplug it and unplug the power then open up the cover and press and hold at the same time the "cancel" "clock set" and "Minute Plus button" while plugging in the ac power. This will then set your password to either 1234,4321, or 6321 (Mine was 4321). That will allow you to enter the settings and disable the system beeps( Option 1). There you can also change the master code. The only drawback to my solution is that you will have to go around the house and press the button inside of them to reprogram the sensors. But if you wait about a week that battery like mine will probably recharge.

Contant Beeping on alarm

The Fail To Comm message is not related to your low battery problem. A Fail to Communicate occurs when the alarm system tries to send a signal (alarm, trouble or restore) to a monitoring service but can't. Most often the causes are telephone related. Has your system been disconnected from it's phone line? Have you recently changed phone services from your main carrier to an internet provider that provides VOIP service? Sometimes alarm systems have a hard time communicating over these services. Whatever the reason for the

If your problem ain't fixed and the system is not in the trashcan yet, try this:
Open panel and enter Utility access code (654321 / 54321 / 4321 / 321), mostly it's 4321, unless someone changed the code.
Unplug from powersource and unplug battery.

Now comes the fun part....

Press Cancel + Clock set + Minutes+ at the same time and restore the power with the battery.
If it says "Hello, System XX OK" you've reset the panel to factory settings and can set up the whole system from the beginning.

Simon 3 "System Low Battery" after 3 years use

I install these panels.  For the low battery message to clear you need to power the system down completely.  To do this you need to unplug the battery and also unplug the transformer plugged into an electrical outlet.  When you power the system back up, you need to first plug in the battery leads.  Then the transformer.
