What you are looking at is a fail to communicate over the phone the panel needs to see a true analog phone line to communicate

most phones are digital phone now a days it is hit and miss with this form of communication some times it works sometimes it dosent i would suggest adding a gsm communicator for if it is digital there is a chance of it not dialing out over a digital phone line

I would contact whoever installed it for you and see what they think . these far away fixes do some good but not as much as a person actually looking at it .

Two of my smoke alarms went off (no fire/smoke in or near house), one has a green light blinking and one has a solid green light, which need a new battery/reset?


The constant green LED means the alarm has AC power.
A flashing green light every 2 seconds without an audible alert means the unit recently sounded ( was the one activated ) and is now in latching mode to let you know that it was the unit that detected the problem. To clear the latching mode hold down the test button for 5 seconds.
Red LED flashing once per minute means that the back-up battery is connected and functioning.
Red light flashing constantly during alarm means that it is the unit that initiated the alarm siren.

Sony HDR-SR10E,Share Sony HDR-SR10E MTS to FLV for Mac Users
Do you have some short films shot with Sony HDR-SR10E AVCHD camcorder, and want to share them on your website? It will make your site more attractive with videos. While Apple compete with Adobe, the Flash support on Apple devices like iMac, MacBook Pro do not support exporting to Flash FLV/SWF now. You can not directly export FLV from the Apple QuickTime Player, iMovie or Final Cut Pro/Final Cut Express.
One solution is to upload videos to YouTube and embed YouTube videos on your site. If you do not want to embed YouTube videos, you can convert Sony HDR-SR10E MTS files to FLV with Mac Sony MTS converter, and put the FLV videos on web server with Flash player. Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac is the recommended Mac Sony HDR-SR10E MTS converter for you. It exports Flash videos with automatic deinterlacing function, which makes the FLV videos play without interlacing artifacts. It could also help you merge several Sony .mts video clips and export as one file.
Here is the step-by-step guide to convert Sony HDR-SR10 videos to Flash on Mac.
Step 1. Load Sony HDR-SR10E videos to Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac.
Run Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac as the Mac Sony HDR-SR10 converter, and click the "Add" button to load .mts files for conversion.
Step 2. Choose Flash FLV output format.
Click the "Format" option, and choose Flash Video > FLV-Flash Video Format(*.flv) as output format. You can also choose the profiles like FLV H.264(*.flv) or F4V(/f4v).

Tips:
With The above mentioned output, you shall use Flash player like JW player, Moyea PlayerBox player, or Flow player to play the Flash videos. If you want the video to play automatically, you may choose SWF-SWF Forma(*.flv) as output.
Step 3. Transcode Sony HDR-SR10 MTS to Flash.
Click the "Convert" button under the preview window, and the conversion from Sony MTS to Flash video FLV/SWF will start right away.
Wait for a while, and you can upload the Flash videos to your sever and embed them on your web page.
PS:
1. The "Merge into one file" on the main interface is to join/splice .mts files.
2. If you are using camcorders like Sony HDR-CX350, HDR-XR520, HDR-TG7, or Cyber-shot DSC-TX7, DSC-H5V, you can also use the Mac Sony MTS converter to export FLV files for web sharing. Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac also works with Canon HF S21, Canon HF100, Panasonic HDC-TM700 and other AVCHD camcorders.

Protection light flashing and alarm sounding, unit was running and the unit just quit and the flashing light and alarm came on


Will the unit power up without the cb radio? I would suggest a short somewhere in the system if the protection light continues to shine bright.

My alarm was working fine then one day i just unlocked the car drove then when i tried locking the car with the remote and it didnt work the light that flashes when alarm is on didnt start flashing it...


Sounds like the unit may have seized (common occurence with this unit). Disconnect the positive battery terminal, wait ten seconds, reconnect. If you have a security radio be sure to have the code handy.

Had to disconnect my battery, when reconected, my flashers come on while driving?


This is a guess by the way, but I would think you have an old alarm system on the vehicle which has probably had the immobiliser part of it removed. When you disconnected the battery the alarm senses the voltage drop and then cuts in. If when you are driving the lights flash and then go normal for a while, then start flashing again for approx 30 seconds, I would start looking for an old alarm unit under the bonnet.
Only a theory, hope it is of help, Andy,

Flashing 12 on control Panel


Hi,

This error is a Flame failure alarm.

It would be good to click HERE and print off all the alarm codes to keep.

As you've just put new gas on, you will probably have to purge the system of air before you get any gas through.
You can probably do this at the heater end.

You first need to check you are getting a spark to the pilot.
If not, check electrical connections, and trace fault to the ignition assembly.

If you are getting a pilot flame (unlikely as you're getting an alarm), you will need to concentrate on the hot-wire sensor and check if it is faulty.

Thanks for using Fixya. Please rate if this works for you.
