Open Question

I need to reset my cathedral safe code but have lost the instructions. I have the keys so I can still get into the safe. I am not sure of the model number but I think the latest equivalent is EA15. The safe is about 6 years old. The operating pad has numbers 1 to 9 and 0 plus * and # symbols. There are no letters. Any help would be very welcome.

SOURCE: Texas Instrument TI-83 Plus error message ERR:MEMORY and the number keys won't work

Hit the "2nd" button in the upper left hand corner of the keypad, and then the "+" button (lower right hand corner). Then either click the down arrow once and then "enter" or just hit the "2" button. (the selection should say "2: Mem Mgmt/Del...") Hit Enter again (selecting the "1: All..." selection) Scroll through the programs on her calculator and either hit the "Del" button (upper right hand corner of the keypad) to delete the programs/variables, or hit "ENTER" to archive them. The archived programs have an asterisk, " * ", in front of them. (Note: Once you delete the programs, you CAN NOT get them back) If you have variables on there "L1" "A" etc. you can delete them and use them again later, obviously.

You can bypass this whole thing and just do "2nd" "+" "7". This combination will reset the calculator and delete any programs that are unimportant to the calculator. You will be left with the "Finance..." option in the APPS menu only...nothing else. You should be able to clear up the problem either way.

My safe, a Cathedral EA15 Will not lock. Any suggestions people?



Instructions
  1. 1

    Enter your code on the keypad located on the front of the safe. Some electronic digital safes require you to input a special character like "#" before and after your code. The safe should either beep, have a LED turn green, or display "OPEN" if you have correctly entered the code.

  2. 2

    Turn the handle to the right within five seconds of correctly entering the code. If you wait too long, the safe will lock and you will have to enter your code ag

3

Open the safe with a key. Use your emergency key that came with the safe to open it if you forgot the code or if the batteries have died. Remove the key cover from either the handle or the control panel to reveal the lock.

  1. 1

    Enter your code to open the safe.

  2. 2

    Place the electronic digital safe into code reset mode. On some models you need to hold the last digit of the code or press the "*" button to get into code reset mode. Other safes require you to open them and press a small red button on the inside of the door.

  3. 3

    Enter your new code on the keypad and press "#" to finish. Some safes may require you to press "*" or a letter to finish the code. If the safe requires it, enter the new code again to confirm that you entered it correctly.

  1. 1

    Use your code to open the electronic digital safe's door.

  2. 2

    Locate and remove the battery cover on the inside of the door.

  3. 3

    Replace the used batteries with new ones. For most safes, this will require two or four AA batteries.

  4. 4

    Test the batteries. Use your code while the door is open to test the batteries before closing the safe.

Need replacement key 747 for a Cathedral Electronic Safe


Im in a bit of a mare, I have a cathedral electronic safe, model ea25 but cannot find the overide key and as such when I put my combination code in it does not accept it

How do I reset the combination code to get it to open without having the override key?

CATHEDRAL ELECTRONIC SAFE 25EA CANNOT OPEN IT WITH MY CODE NEED THE RESET CODE


You can't, as there is no reset code available once the door is locked. It would be absolutely useless anyway if all a thief had to do was to ask on a public website for a bypass code. The only alternative way into the safe is via the override key (an actual physical key which fits into an opening hidden behind a removable plastic panel on the safe door).

If you cannot find the emergency key then you have just one fix: you must open the safe destructively. Fortunately, your model is just a budget-priced electronic strong-box rather than a true safe, so the top or sides can be easily be cut open using a grinding disc or by just drilling a few holes and joining them up with a cold chisel.

Note that it's not worth calling out a locksmith, they'll only cut the box open and the charge will be many time more than the cost of a complete replacement strong-box (you can buy a similar complete replacement for under £40 including postage from this seller).

Cant find override key. can we open any other way CATHEDRAL ELECTRONIC SAFE 20EA


No. If you've forgotten the combination and lost the override key then all that's left is to cut the safe open with, say, an angle grinder.

Calling a locksmith out isn't an option: all they'll do is to cut it open and charge you at least £80 plus possibly the cost of a cutting disc for the service. It makes no economic sense when you can replace your safe for less than £30.

Note that as your safe is a really cheap and basic model with lots of plastic parts, you may even be able to smash it open by destroying the front of the door to access the door bolt mechanism. It's also not hardened against drilling, so you may decide to drill a pilot hole and then saw a hole into the safe.

Sorry, this may not be the answer you hoped for, but if safes were really easy to open without the keys/combination then they wouldn't be safe. Luckily yours is still very easy to open using basic household tools.

Please take a moment to rate my reply.

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.

BATTERY REPLACEMENT
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.

YOU MUST PROGRAME YOUR SECURITY CODE AFTER YOU REPLACE THE BATTERIES. SEE STEPS 1- 3 UNDER “ENTERING YOUR SECURITY CODE”.
TROUBLE KEY
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.
MAINTENANCE FOR KEY AND ELECTRONIC SAFE
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.
