DSC 832 General System Supervisory Trouble

I have a DSC 832 led keypad that showed a trouble tonight indicating a General System Supervisory. This occurred immediately after a very close lightening strike although no power was lost, not even a flicker. The 6yr old system has door/windows, smokes and acuity glass breakage sensors. The docs indicates a loss of communication to a module but I am not sure how to troubleshoot or correct/reset the problem. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks...

A lot depends on your level of access to the panel. Since you have the LED keypad, you can't look at the event log stored in the system to get a specific infomation.

You will need the installer code to correct this problem.
trouble if a module is removed from the system.
To enable supervision, enter the following at any keypad:
Step 1 - Press[*] [8] [Installer Code] to enter Installer Programming.
Step 2 - Press [902] to enable supervision. The panel will automatically search for all modules on the
system. Once the search (it will take about 1 minute) is complete enter the following to confirm
the modules on the system.
Step 3 - Press [903] to display all modules.
Zone lights will be turned on according to what modules the panel has found on the system. The LCD keypad
will allow you to scroll through the modules. Refer to the following chart:
Light [1] ....... Keypad 1 present Light [13] ........ Zones 25 to 28 present
Light [2] ....... Keypad 2 present Light [14] ........ Zones 29 to 32 present
Light [3] ....... Keypad 3 present Light [15] ........ N/A (not used)
Light [4] ....... Keypad 4 present Light [16] ........ N/A (not used)
Light [5] ....... Keypad 5 present Light [17] ........ Module PC5132 present
Light [6] ....... Keypad 6 present Light [18] ........ Module PC5208 present
Light [7] ....... Keypad 7 present Light [19] ........ Module PC5204 present
Light [8] ....... Keypad 8 present Light [20] ........ Module PC5400 present
Light [9] ....... Zones 9 to 12 present Light [21] ........ Module PC5928 present
Light [10] ....... Zones 13 to 16 present Light [22] ........ Module LINKS2X50 present
Light [11] ....... Zones 17 to 20 present Light [23] ........ N/A
Light [12] ....... Zones 21 to 24 present Light [24] ........ Escort5580 module present
If a module is connected but does not show as being present, it may be due to any of the following reasons:
it is not connected to the Keybus
if there is a Keybus wiring problem
if the module is more than 1,000'/305m from the panel
if the module does not have enough power
if the PC5132 does not have any devices added
