SENTRY S3877 SAFE

WE HAD TO REPLACE THE BATTERIES AND WHEN WE DID WE ARE UNABLE TO OPEN THE SAFE. IT IS A GOOD THING THAT WE REPLACED THE BATTERIES WITH IT OPEN. I KEY IN MY CODE AND THE HANDLE MOVED DOWN AND THE BOLTS WENT IN TO THE DOOR BUT THE HANDLE IS STUCK. I CAN NOT OPEN IT OR LOCK IT. I HAVE MISPLACED MY BOOK BECAUSE I BOUGHT THIS ABOUT 6 YEARS AGO AND NEVER HAD TO REPLACE BATTERIES UNTIL NOW. PLEASE HELP

How do I get my Sentry Safe S3877 to open when one of the wire is dangling from the battery pack?


Check, you are connecting to the correct spot. That is the place the wire broke off.
It could be you only are using 2 or 3 from the four batteries. Then the voltage is always to low.
Then check you got the right batteries. Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries. They don't have enough capacity and can start leaking.

I have a Sentry safe S3877 the batteries were replaced with new it still gives the error beeps for batteries need to be replaced the safe will not open, how can I get the safe to open?


A1 Locksmith Burlingame CA Once you get the error light that means you are entering a user code that was deleted when the batteries went dead . Simply replace the batteries then use the master code in your owners manual to open the safe. Reprogram new user code instructions bottom of this page.

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:

Somehow can open my sentry s3877 with the keypad.


A Safe and Vault Tech Will confirm that once you change the batteries the user code will erase and you will now have to enter the factory default that is in the owners manual and then use the programing instructions to program a new user code.

Safe SENTRY S3877 can not open the door


The door lock could be jammed try shacking briskly to losen lid and latch! akso it may have reset itself and the combo is no good no more and back to the origanal setting it had when you bought it ! ( if its a 911 you can put a screwdriver in where key goes and turn hard counter clockwise)
Good Luck!

Sentry s3877 battery compartment broke


I had the same problem with my Sentry S3877. I found the exact 4-battery replacement (with snap attachment on top!) at an online electronics.retailer, but had to purchase a lot of three. I don't need the other two, so I'll sell them for just $6 each to the first two folks to contact me mark@irregardless.net.

Oh, by the way, once the batteries went dead, you lost your combination! When you pop the new battery compartment in, the factory default combination will be in effect. That default combination is in your user's manual. I'm currently searching frantically for mine! Gee, how could I have misplaced it ... I just had it in my hands when I purchased the safe 10 years ago !!!

Anyone know the default combo for the S3877?
