Hi,

I am sorry to hear regarding the Problem. As the Battery Is dead and even the Emergency key is Failed to Operate, you need to call Locksmith or a Tech to Fix this.

I am afraid, these are the ONLY Solutions.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Only has keypad to access safe. batteries are dead


Leave it for a week. The batteries might have regenerated just enough to open the door once more.

Otherwise there may be a keyhole beneath the front plate.

If all else fails, you'll have to cut the back out of the safe.

My lagard lock safe won't open-no battery.


If internal battery is depleted and will not allow lock to open, hold a new9-volt alkaline battery on the contact points (large battery terminal to
large keypad contact, small to small) located on the front of the keypad.
Maintain contact, enter and valid code and turn keypad to open lock.
Lock contains a non-volatile
memory, even with batteries removed the lock will retain
all programming.
NOTE: You must maintain battery contact at all times throughout the
entire procedure.

I changed the battery, but my sentry 1610 is not responding. Look like the whole keypad is dead. Can you please tell me is there a secondary battery for the keypad?


Could be the battery holder is bad. A1 Locksmith Burlingame CA 94010 have Sentry safe locks, keys, battery holders, battery door covers, and door handles. But only a small supply in stock.

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:

We have a S3877 Sentry safe. The battery appears dead so I can't use the code. I also have the key but since the battery is dead it is no help. What can I do?

I forgot the safewell electronic code and didnt have the key


NOTE: The safe needs to be upright and right side up or the locking mechanism
won’t work.
ELECTRONIC SAFES
To open an electronic safe the first time, press the following numbers/letters on the
electronic keypad –159B. (These numbers are preset. You should change the code as soon
as possible after opening the safe to insure proper security). After you have entered the
factory set code, you will need to turn the knob on the faceplate to open the door. You will
have 5 seconds to turn the knob before the locking mechanism is reactivated.
ENTERING YOUR SECURITY CODE
To enter your own security code you will need to follow the steps listed below:
1. 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 you can not get this open more then likely you will have to cut it open.. One last thing to try is to email safewell sales@safewellsafe.com

Good luck

Use paperclip to push in pin size hole below keyboard and then slide panel to right. Battery box is right there. Replace batteries and then was already to accept code.
