Partner P-832 Alarm System

I recently cancelled my montoring for my Partner P-832 alarm system. I am unable to turn the alarm on because it shows a message that there is communication problems. How do I over ride the communication problem? I unplugged the phone line inside the box but that didn't help.

What _exactly_ does the message say?

A failure to communicate should not stop the system from arming/disarming; however, it's possible that the previous service company has used the downloader software to disable the alarm.

If it's a communications failure, it's fixable (assuming the system was not set with an installer lockout). If they shut it down, it's a brick.

By the way, Partner P-832 is a rebranded DSC PC 5010/Power 832.
