All you have to do is press program & type in the factory code 2 times & that will erase the number you created.

Then to add a new combination all you have to do is: press program followed by 5 new numbers. Then to see if they new number works, just type in the new combination & the green light should come on & you have 4 seconds to turn the handle

I have a different model but I had the same problem. Called customer service and they had me push up on the handle and enter the code. That didn't work but then they had me tap the safe with a rubber mallet 5 times above the panel and 5 times to the right of the panel. That worked for me. Hope one of those works.

You want to be sure not to suffer a "lock out". Now, that'll cost you a few bucks -- probably more than the safe is worth...

I am quite familiar with combination lock safes, and I know that one cannot hurt them by locking them whilst the door is open, and I'd guess that digital ones should not be damaged by locking them open either.

After all, for a large safe that isn't being used, I prefer to lock them open.... no one can get stuck inside one and if I forget the combination, I can get it easily directly from the lock itself.

I'd look for a sensor that is confused. There must be several inputs to the lock that tell it that all is right with the world --- Above all, do not put anything into the safe until you have fixed the problem or decided to 'deep six' the safe.

Regarding the error message. Does the error light blink four times or in some pattern? If there is any pattern to the blinking it could be a message that tells you what is causing the problem.

If all else fails... I'd suggest a locksmith. There is something going on inside that lock that isn't right.

Calling a locksmith may not be cost effective, since he has to make money, and the safe itself isn't all that high qualtiy or expensive to begin with.

How do I open a sentry s3877 safe when the battery is dead and safe is closed


The factory code combination to your electronic lock will remain in the memory of the unit - even if the batteries go dead. Any use programmed codes will be lost if the batteries lose power. The Sentry programmed factory code is always your default code.

If you do not know your factory code, you can follow this link for your combination retrieval:

I have a sentry safe 1610 that my combination will not open it. Is there anyway to reset the combination or open the safe


Take the safe to a safe specialist in your area. They have a way to open the safe. Because safes are meant to be SAFE - codes are not divulged.

Sentry 1610 safe - battery is dying?


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.
