i am a locksmith that has worked on several of these. The safe is manufactuered with three types of lock mechanisms 1. combo dial 2. digital 3. advanced digital the advanced digital is what you have there are no green lights on it. look at the manual carefully there are 2 seperate sections on the digital key pads yours will be the second.

These safe are easily opened by a good locksmith. So if you have items in the safe you need to get out a safe and vault tech could drill it open and repair it for a small fee. I really don't think it is the chip probably just a stuck solinoid.

I have 2 Sentry 1610 Safes. A fresh alkaline battery MAY open the safe once (maybe twice), and then the same problem. I have a variable DC power supply that I hook up to the battery terminals, set to 9 volts and increase the current until the keypad responds & the deadbolt releases. Sentry has no solution for this problem, as this model is too old & they have no parts or troubleshooting. If you know someone with a small DC Power Supply, you can get your safe open / closed.

I hate to tell you, I just had this same problem on a brand new safe (x-mas present) and ended up having to crack it open. Unfortunately, from my extensive research on this problem on Sentry Safes it turns out that they use an encoded IC chip on the solenoid and if either a serial wire breaks going to the board or the IC chip fails, you get the 5 beep-of-death error. Needless to say, I'm thoroughly disappointed in Sentry and will discourage anyone from purchasing their products!
