DSC PC5010 still showing error code 7 (sensor low bat)

Manual says if you hit 7 again up to 4 times it will show affected sensor (in groups of 8).

Since I was unable to get it to do this, I went around and tested batteries in every wireless PIR.

Sure enough one was low. So I replace the low bat w/ a tested good one but I still cannot arm due to same (7) error.

What might I be missing?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Is the device remounted? How many wireless devices do you have? What keypad model do you have?

Hi,

I have 5 wireless sensors and two LED5508s KPs (in addition to various wired components).

It does not provide feedback thru the KP as to which channel.

Thank you.

This is "old school" but,
  1. remove the battery,
  2. short the battery contacts on the device (NOT the battery) for a few seconds,
  3. reinstall the battery and the device.
You can use anything conductive to short the contacts.

Actually, the repeated pressing of [7] shows the first 8 zones, then the wireless keypads, then the wireless keyfobs. Sadly the LED keypad model only displays the first 8 zones. Some of the older DSC wireless are _very_ fussy about batteries, and batteries that are "new" but a little too long in shelf life might not work. You may simply have to methodically replace _all_ of the batteries, methodically.
