SOURCE: Green proceed light goes on but door does not depress lock

I have a different model but I had the same problem. Called customer service and they had me push up on the handle and enter the code. That didn't work but then they had me tap the safe with a rubber mallet 5 times above the panel and 5 times to the right of the panel. That worked for me. Hope one of those works.

SOURCE: Drivers power lock will not unlock with remote.

the door lock actuator is defective, they get really hard to move when they go bad, that is why the difficulty with the key.

SOURCE: Door locked on safe

Brian We can't give advise on the safe but you can call the manufacture of the safe and if you have registered it they will help you otherwise federal law requires a lock smith to identify you and your information and your ownership of the safe before they will unlock it for you. This is to protect you or the safe owner and the lock smith from being sued and losing his licence.. There should be a sticker on the safe with a 800 number for you to call to get help. But you must have registered it first. They may have a way to verify it some other way but am not sure.

I have a Sentry Safe S3877 both lights are on the red error light and the green proceed light. I enter passcode and nothing happens. How do I get by this?


might help


Here are the things that can cause that:
Red (Error) LED + three beeps indicates one
of the following:
1. You have pressed Program key out of sequence.
2. You have entered an invalid code or user pin.
3. You have let 5 seconds or more elapse between
key presses.
4. Lights after three consecutive invalid codes are input
(2-minute delay mode).

Perhaps when you changed batteries the internal memory did not completely erased and the factory mode is not in place (even if they say the factory number should work at any time). Try to let the safe without battery for a whole hour.

If this don't work, you will have to contact them at:
http://www.sentrysafe.com/customerCare/Contact_SentrySafe.aspx
You will probably have to give them your serial number.

Of course, because an easy to open safe would not be useful in the first place, they have that policy about code:
http://server.iad.liveperson.net/hc/s-24841635/cmd/kbresource/kb-5562978334380845442/view_question!PAGETYPE?sf=101133&documentid=195374&action=view
But if you did try the code on the top of the manual and it's not working they might still help you as it's not as if you completely lost it

2. Remove the battery cover plate located on the inside of the door.

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.

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.
