DSC PC1555MX Alarm System Troouble Light 3 & 4 Unable To Disarm Phone Line

I have a DSC PC1555MX Alarm System that is displaying 2 trouble codes (3 & 4). These codes indicate that it is unable to connect to the phone line and it is unable to connect to the central station. I have unplugged the phone line because it is no longer being monitored. Can anyone explain how to disable this feature? Thanks for your help.

From the sticky titled "Alarm Forum FAQ (Please read before posting)

DSC: Power series panels (632, 832, 864); trouble 3 (telephone line trouble) and/or trouble 4 (failure to communicate) shows on new/defaulted system.

DSC panels default to the communicator turned on, and TLM (telephone line monitoring) turned on. If you will not be using the communicator functions, you have to turn them off by entering programming, turning off option 7 in section 015, and option 1 in section 380.
Your situation only differs in that you are discontinuing monitoring.

The actual keystrokes:
*8 [installer code]
015 7#
380 1#
# until you exit programming.

Of course you should websearch using the phrase "DSC PC1555 installer manual"

I have the master code to my system, but not the installer code. How can I find out what it is?
I have the same trouble code - 1 & 3. I want to disable the comm feature

The factory default is 5555. If it's been changed, it could be anything. Some mass market installers use fairly well known codes, but if your is some local installer, it could be anything.
