I have to ask the obvious question. Can the batteries be changed from the outside? If not, I would call a locksmith to drill out the lock or pick the lock. He can also make you a new key for it once it's open.It won't be cheap, sorry.

I have lost the combination for my safe model V330 my model number V330 Sentry safe


  • Open your Sentry safe by typing the five-digit factory code (found in your owner's manual) on the keypad. It's always a good idea to change your combination while the safe is open, so that you don't inadvertently lock yourself out.
  • Delete any existing codes by pressing the "P" key and entering the factory code, followed by "00000." On older safes, press the "PROG" key and entering your factory code twice to delete old codes.
  • Press the "PROG" or "P" key again on your Sentry safe's keypad.
  • Enter your safe's five-digit factory code.
  • Enter a five-digit code of your choosing within 5 seconds. This is your user code. While the factory code cannot be changed, your user code can be changed as often as you like, and that should be your primary code to open the safe. Only you should know your safe's factory code.
  • Retype the user code to verify it is working, and then close the safe.

How can we open a digital safe?


Normally the safe should have come with a key to open it in the event that the keypad fails. Even if there is no key you can call the manufacturer and supply them with the serial number and they should be able to help you. I had a similar problem where the keypad on my safe failed and the manufacturer sent me a new keypad within two days.

I have a safewell safe. Batteries are dead and I have lost my keys. The reference is EX2006029121. ANY IDEAS PLEASE.


I read this elsewhere. it's worth a try...
"I had the same problem, batteries dead and i could not find the keys. I read on the internet that if you get a hairdryer, and heat up the front of the safe where the keypad is and where the spare key goes in this will work, i thought anything is worth a try. So i held the hairdryer there for a bout 15 mins and what happens is the heat slowly boosts the battery life, enabling you to open the safe. You will notice that you start to get a beep noise from the key pad. even though i was getting a beep from the pad it didnt open straight away but after about 10 mins i retried the code and it worked. Make sure you replace the batteries immediately before closing the safe again "

I have a Micromark digital safe which the batteries have died and I cannot find the key to open it manually. Where can I get a replacement key or are there any instructions to open the safe manually...


There are a few things to try: "lock bumping", heating the safe up or depending on the mode, some have a little cover that you remove and hold a PP3 9V battery across two terminals to supplement the internal power to allow it to drive the solenoid.

There are loads of video's on youtube about "lock bumping" but I have to admit that this does not always work and did not work for me when I was in exactly the same predicament.

As my "NuTool" safe did not have a place to fit an external PP3 battery, the way I got into the safe was to heat the safe up. I used a cheap £10 fan heater to blow heat onto the safe keypad (make sure you do not put it on too hot as we do not want to melt the keypad or plastic).

Leave it on for about 4 hours and then try it. Warming batteries temporarily makes them work better but it is only temporary. You would have to immediately replace the batteries as soon as the safe is open.

I have a gordon digital electronic safe # P45891, lost combination .how to open it?


Take the single screw off of the entry pad and remove the cover plate. Using the key that came with the safe, unlock the safe. Now, look for a little red button on the inner hinge. Push it in and you will note the yellow led on the the front of the safe turns on. Now, enter a 4 digit code of you choice. This is automatically saved and is the new 4 digit code you press to open the safe.
