    How do i set code for paragon safe

    1. Remove the key plate cover, insert the key into the keypad and open the door.
    2. Remove the battery cover plate located on the inside of the door.
    3. Install 4 AA batteries provided and replace the battery cover.
    : If both the red and green lights are on while the safe is open, this indicates that the batteries are low and need
    to be changed.

    1. With the door open, locate the red button on the back of the door near the hinge.
    2. Press the red button and listen for the beep.
    3. Immediately enter your new passcode (3-6 digits long)
    4. Immediately after entering your new passcode, press the "A" or "B" button on the keypad. Your new user passcode is now stored.
    This safe stores up to 2 passcodes (a user code and a manager code). Entering a third code will erase the
    first passcode entered.

    1. Open your safe with the passcode you wish to change and leave the door ajar.
    2. Press the "0" button on the keypad twice. Press the red button, listen for a beep and then enter your new user passcode.
    New user passcodes may be 3-6 digits long.
    3. Immediately after entering your new code, press the "A" or "B" button on the keypad. Your user code is now changed.
    1. Input your code and then press the "B" button, the green light will turn on.
    2. Turn the knob clockwise within 5 seconds to open the door.
    3. Each key pressed will be accompanied by a buzzer and a yellow flashing light. If the entered code is invalid the yellow light will
    flash and the buzzer will quickly sound, this indicates the code needs to be re-entered.

    : Entering the incorrect passcode 3 times will lock the system for 20 seconds.

    I have the key I know the3 combination but still i could not open because it's in low battery

    if you know the battery is low then you need to open your safe using the keys and then change your batteries as the safe won't open using your 3 digit code if the batteries are low.

    2. You have entered an invalid code or password.

    entering a 5-digit User Code.
    3. Comes ON in the Program Password mode after you have

    entered a 5-digit password.
    Yellow LED
    Indicates low battery and will typically not turn ON until
    battery has been in use approximately two years or longer.
    Your electronic lock automatically performs a low battery test
    during each lock use.
    If a �low battery� condition is detected the Yellow LED will
    come ON and remain ON during each subsequent lock
    operation. (The lock will continue to function in a Low Battery
    state, until battery failure.) The Yellow LED will turn OFF only
    after three consecutive Good Battery readings or after the low
    batteries are replaced. (Note: If the new batteries are installed
    in less than 60 seconds the Yellow LED may come ON and stay
    ON during the first lock operation before it returns to OFF.)
    NOTE: It is recommended you replace the batteries after two
    years, or when the yellow LED remains on.

    The batteries of my powersafe TR 36 are dead and I don't have any key. What can I do to open the safe? Urgent! Thank you in advance!

    I know this post is months old, maybe you didn't open your safe yet or maybe someone else could use the advice.

    The batteries are no inside the safe because of this reason, that you should be able to change them if they run dry.

    Under the key panel is a long plastic panel. You can slide it to the right and underneath you find the battery compartment.

    4 x AA batteries

    How to unlock a cathedral electronic safe ea25

    After opening the electronic safe (with the pre-set factory code of 159B) locate the small red button on the
    inside of the door near the hinge.

    2. Press the red button and then release it, you will hear a beep. DO NOT SHUT THE DOOR UNTIL YOU HAVE CONFIRMED THAT YOUR NEW SECURITY CODE HAS BEEN ENTERED CORRECTLY.
    3. With the door open, enter your own personal security code, which can be 3- 8 digits long, and confirm your new code by pressing the letter “B” on the electronic touch pad. Before you close the door, try the new security code to make sure the lock release the knob so you can turn it and retract the live action locking bolts.
    If the code fails, go through steps 1-3 again. If the code works successfully, then you should lock the safe. When you open the safe in the future enter the security code you have set followed by the letter “B” and turn the knob.

    If the incorrect security code is entered 3 times you will have an automatic lockout for 20 seconds before you can try your code again. If the incorrect security code is entered 3 additional times there will be a 5- minute lockout before the code can be tried again.

    This safe uses 4- AA batteries. Under normal use, batteries will last about 1 year. When the battery is low, a red light will come on warning you that the battery is low. To test the batteries, enter your security code. If the batteries are low the red light located in the middle of the top of the keypad will start to flash.

    To replace the batteries, open the safe door with your security code and turn the knob. Push the batteries cover plate, which is located on the back of the door, and replace the old batteries.

    A “Trouble key” has been provided in case you forget or lose your security code. Remove the small central panel from the front of the faceplate. Insert the key and turn it counter clockwise. Then turn the knob on the door towards the right. This will manually open your safe. If you lose your key, you may purchase a replacement key by referencing the serial number located under the central panel by the lock.
    If the door of the safe starts to rub on the door frame, open the door per the instructions above. By the door hinges you will find a threaded stem. Use an Allen wrench to tighten the threaded stem. This will help realign the door and give you trouble free access to the contents of your safe.

    Unable to open digital safe

    I have a similar problem as I have acquired (last night) a similar Woolies safe, locked, batteries dead & keys do not work. I am told you may be able to reset the code if you can depress the red button on the back of the door from the back of the safe through one of the bolt holes, easier said than done! Needs a stiff piece of wire or thin steel... good luck I will try this technique soon. These instructions were found by surfing the Net...
