Hi, as you know your system is old. The company that made your system no longer exists. There is no support for your system. No parts available. It sounds like a circuit board problem. Defects in circuit boards are not normally fixed where I work. Not cost effective to pull panel and send it out to be bench tested. shipped back for reinstallation. cheaper to replace panel and keypads. There is a 50/50 chance you may have to replace sensors Too, on that panel. Hope this helps.

Depends. Do you mean the chime? If all that is missing is the chime whenever a zone is tripped then simply press the CHIME button on the front panel. If it is lighted solid red then your chime is on and it will talk to you. If chime is off then it wont talk to you at all when a zone is tripped. Good luck.

If your door is protected by a wireless transmitter your problem is most likely a defective switch or a grounded wire from the switch to the transmitter. To determine if the transmitter is working properly pop off the top of transmitter case by using a small blade screwdriver. If you look on the side of the casing you will see a small slot where the screwdriver is placed. Insert the blade of the screwdriver there and twist. The top of the transmitter will release. Inside you will see a small circuit board and battery. If an external switch is used you will also see 2 wires connected to the circuit board which then leads to the swtch. Using a very small screwdriver remove these wires. Now go check system status at your keypad. If the system recognizes the door as open then your problem is a bad switch or pinched wires that are grounding out the switch. If the keypad's status says the door is still closed the problem is in the transmitter. Sometimes these transmitters will be installed using an internal contact/switch.To know if this is the case on your door you will see only the transmitter mounted on or next to the door and a small magnet within a half inch or so on the opposing side. If this is the case your problem again is the internal switch. For replacement of external switches you can try going to a Radio Shack where they offer an assortment. Hope this helps.

While I am not familiar with the brand name of your security system all systems use a backup battery in the event the electric power goes out in house. When electric power is on the system automatically trickle charges the battery so that it is ready for use when needed. If your system has a control panel (normally a white metal box found in a 1st floor closet or basement) where all the wiring to the system has been run, open it and you will see the battery which is connected to the control panel's motherboard with red and black wires. Most security system batteries are rated at 12 volts DC and are sized at either 4 amp hour or 7 amp hour. Make a note of this and go to a battery warehouse store in your area and have them match it up. Once installed a battery should be replaced every 4-5 years. If your system does not have a control panel (some systems are portable) then the batttery could be located in a console. Most of these types of systems have a battery access area from the rear and are much smaller than ones found in control panels. Usually these are 12 VDC 1.5 Amp Hour. Hope this helps. If there is anything unusual about your system that I have not addressed please get in touch with me and I will try to answer your questions.

Probably knocked off the clip on the piezo. Open the box and make sure all plugs are plugged into the circuit board.
