An open zone is a detection zone that has a broken or loose wire in which the end of line resistor is not being seen from the panel.

each zone wire loop is constantly monitored using a resistor at the very end. this resistor is a specific value and is usually different for each brand of system. the resistor is either attached to the 2 wires at the end, or more commonly installed at the last device on that loop - again across the 2 wires.

as long as the panel can "see" the resistor there, the zone is normal.

if the 2 wires are shorted together, the zone is in alarm.

if either of the wires are broken, the zone goes into an "open" condition, meaning the circuit is open and the resistor can no longer be "seen".

fixing the open circuit involves using an ohm meter to read the resistance of the wiring and tracing the wiring from one end to the other to find the "broken" wire or loose connection.

it is not an incredibly hard process, but does take some skill. if you are not handy with an electrical meter, calling someone who is would be your best bet.

How do I connect a 24v damper motor with 6 colored wires red white yellow green blue black to NO COM NC terminals.


Choose two colors of the thermostat wire, and connect them to the NO and COM and connect them to the zone control board leads for the zone intended. Almost all zone valves spring return open when deenergized. So ensure the zone valve is open with the system is off. At the base of zone valve there is a set screw that needs to engage the damper valve shaft in the open position with the motor in the spring release position. Most zone valve are 90 degree moment from full open to full shut. If you have a Carrier zone valve, they go full open to full shut in 45 degrees of motion. Your open stop need to be set so the valve stops in the full stop position.
To help understand the operation of a zone system, say you have 2 zone system and zone 1 thermostat initiates a heat or cool demand. Zone 2 valves energizes and shuts and zone 1 stays open and allow air to heat/ cool zone 1. If zone 2 thermostat simultaniously initiates the same heat/cool demand, the zone 2 valve opens and both zone heat/cool. When either thermostat is satisfied the opposite zone valve closes and when both thermostat are satisfied both zone valves open.
Hope this helps you understand zone operation. The same works for higher multizone systems.

How can i solve system calender problem.I cant fix the date and time.


For immediate results in fixing the date and time on your computer, double click on the taskbar at the bottom of your Windows screen. This is located on the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. The date and time control panel on your computer will automatically open.

Adjust the Properties
Double click the clock. A smaller date and time properties menu will open as soon as you have double clicked on the time at the bottom of your Windows computer screen. To set the date and time on your personal computer, the process is quite simple. You can use your mouse to click on the correct day, month, and year. You will also see an image of a clock on the right-hand side of the properties menu that will display the corrected time that you have entered. When you are pleased with the corrections, simply click on the OK button on your computer screen. Most modern computers automatically adjust for daylight savings, but several older models do not. As a result, you will need to update the time as mentioned.

Time Zone
Adjust the time zone on your computer by clicking once on the time zone tab that is displayed on the same properties menu that opened when you clicked on the clock at the bottom of your computer screen. To set your time zone, you can choose the correct time zone from the drop down menu. Use the small arrow to show the options in the time zone menu on your computer. Once again, you can click OK when you are finished. If you choose to have your computer automatically updated for daylight savings, then be sure that the small box at the bottom of the time zone menu is checked.

Zone 2 vol fix


I'm assuming you mean when you try to turn up the vol on zone 2 it says "zone 2 vol fix" and you want it to be "variable" giving you the control from the remote. Open the GUI menu (Receivers main settings menu) go to (options) select external zone or zone2 then select (Variable) If you have your receiver passing video to your TV it's alot easier to navigate the menu. If you still have problems, post a reply on this thread with your product list including make and model #'s and I can walk you thru the whole process. Hope this helps

Sony vaio vgn-fs775p laptop real time clock not keeping time


Hi

thank you for your query

If the time is not keeping up then it would seem that you will need to change your CMOS battery, this is a small battery found on the motherboard responsible for clocking etc

The battery is cheap to purchase, however I do highly recommned the laptop be booked into a reputable PC shop for replacement as you will need to take the whole laptop apart to get the motherboard

I hope this has been helpful

The Zone 1 (basement) and Zone 3 (second floor; no


On the zone damper motor, there should be a little lever allowing you to open the damper for emergency heat. Probably a bad zone motor or connection.

Sprinkler system problem.


the bleeders or solenoids are probably open or loose on all the zone valves.close each of the bleeders and the water in each zone will stop.The zone valves are usually installed ad part of a manifold enclosed in a green box installed flush to the grade or grass. Pull the cover off to expose the zone valves
