Question about Home Security

Pm 909 Thanks for the advise, I know that my B+ is low but am having difficulties in finding the cause. I cannot adjust to the correct 11 volts I have go so far as to swap components from another known good monitor Flyback swapped CRT and Yoke swapped ALL electrolytics Replaced All coils (chokes) swapped All transistors swapped Power Supply swapped via jumper wires (The supply from the "bad" monitor powered the "good" monitor properly) I think I'm down to Ceramic/mica caps and resistors and ther's a mess of them little buggers I'm at my witt's end Thanks again fo rthe help

Those mica and ceramics don't usually go bad.

if the B+ is low, then keep looking there. It may be in the bias voltage of the regulator? If I had a schematic and some voltages from tests, I might be able to pinpoint it.

What, besides battery failure , causes 4009-9201 panel battery trouble alert on 4010.


My problem turned out to be with the board and the output of the charger was too low. It needs to be about 27.5 volts. The transformer was okay but the circuit that controlled the output was bad and even with adjusting the potentiometer we could not get the charger to put out the correct voltage. The fix was a new board from Simplex. We got a deal as the tech that came out had the board on his van . Labor and parts were $1,100.00. We get a lot of spikes where we are in Arizona and suspect that a bit of a jolt from a spike or nearby lightning strike wounded the board. A surge protector can help but a hard hit will toast this board.The trouble sensor looks for a full output charge or it will show a trouble
Hope that helps

I have an Ademco 6270 touchscreen keypad, Even after I lock all the doors and windows a black bar appears that says "not ready". What's causing this?


A "not ready" message indicates a zone that has faulted. An open door or windows will give this same message. If all the doors and windows are closed, this message will indicate that there is a break or other problem with wiring or an issue has developed with a switch or other sensor hardware.

You should check the hardware for obvious signs of damage, misalignment, etc. Visually check exposed wires to be sure none are pinched, broken, or shorted. *Most* security systems operate at very low voltages (24 volts or less), so danger from burns or shock are minimal if yours is such a low voltage system. Make adjustments, repairs or replace as needed. If uncomfortable making these repairs - or are unsure how to do it - call the installer or other reputable alarm service company or electrical contractor to do it for you.

I hope this helps & good luck!

> Since power ws restored, I hav a low battery alarm for about 3 days.
The charge circuit probably only supplies a tiny charge current to prevent overcharging of the main battery and I suspect the original is a NiCad and has likely lost a cell or two (shorted; it's common with them) over that fairly long period.
Replacing it with either Lithium Ion or NiMh rechargeables with a honest voltage rating (*some aren't) is a good move; neither of these are as prone to failure as NiCad is. Don't be surprised if you still have a 'low battery' alert for several days since these batteries rarely have a full charge when shipped.
*So-called '9V' block batteries are, except for rare batteries, actually 8.4 or even only 7.2 volts. I have some instruments that indicate 'Low battery' with either of these even when fully charged.

I have a Simon XT which I installed about two weeks ago. I keep getting a system low battery message when I press the status button on the console. I had a new battery shipped and I installed it about 24...


Call your Central Station and put your account on test if it is a monitored system.

Power down the system. Disconnect the battery, then the AC adapter. Then plug the battery in first, then the AC adapter. Plugging the AC adapter in first can cause the low battery message.

if that doesn't work, with the battery disconnected, measure the voltage of the battery with a multimeter. If it reads less than 5.4 volts, the battery is bad. Bad out of the box batteries are not too uncommon.

Next, check the charging voltage from the panel. Measure DC voltage from the leads that connect to the battery. They should read around 6 Volts DC. If the charging circuit is bad, it will cause a low battery trouble and the console will need to be repaired or replaced.

Hope this helps.

Turn off daily alarms


Sounds like a trouble alarm. Try this manual page 39. Hopefully this is the type panel you have if not let me know of any writing, model numbers etc that could help me identify the specific panel.

GE Simon says that the smoke alarm has a low battery. Replaced the batteries, and still receive the same alert. ???


I know some of this sounds obvious but the problem is usally related to 1 of 3 things.

1 Battery oreintation is wrong
2 Replacement batteries were old and were already below the low battery threshold (1.35 volts per battery/ 2.7 volts combined)
3 Didn't use the correct battery - manufacturer recommends lithium batteries (quality alkilines will work but they will have a shorter life)

Beyond this I will need more information to diagnose the issue.

I have an elite robo swing r900 gate opener. gate door's are not closing, battery keeps beeping and it shows low battery


first check you battery and make sure it is putting out 12v dc then if you have a solar power system check the red and black wire comming from the panel and make sure it is putting out 24volts. if you panel is not putting out the volts it caused your battery to die so replace your panel and battery and all should work fine. if your using a trickel charger do the same check power its putting out and make sure its correct and also check the 120v ac comming in to the charger. Follow the steps it deffinatly sounds like a power issue.

The deflection current is dropping in both vertical and horizontal. This suggests a low B+.This can also be caused by a flyback problem. Check all the Caps in the HV section. If not, it's the flyback.
