PC1555MX50/300 system armed after factory default main panel reset

Hello,

I have gone through the below steps and the keypad armed light is still lit. Did the reset work?

"Factory Default Main Panel (Hardware)
1. Remove AC and battery from the panel.
2. Remove all wires from the Zone 1 and PGM1 terminals.
3. With a piece of wire short the Zone 1 terminal to the
PGM1 terminal.
4. Apply AC power to the main panel.
5. When Zone Light 1 is lit on the keypad the default is
complete.
6. Remove AC power from the control
7. Reconnect all original wiring and power up the control."

I've also tried the *8 5555 007 +4-digit # step without success.

Any advice I can take to get my system back?

Thanks!

When you power the system up, do you hear 10 clicks from the motherboard phone relay? If so, the installer lockout was set, and about all you can do with the thing is replace the motherboard.

Thank you for replying. I tested what you suggested 2 times to try to hear anything, but I heard nothing. Is the clicking noticeable or do I need to put my ear fairly close to the board.

I've also read online that companies can come in and reset the board. What is it that they use? Is it affordable?

Thanks again!

No, the clicks are pretty audible, so if you aren't hearing them, then it's not locked out.

If you successfully defaulted the system, then the master user code will default to 1234 and the installer code to 5555. Have you tried to disarm the system with 1234?

Honestly, what you would spend on an unlocking service is not too far from the cost of a new PC1616 board (the current gen. replacement for a 1555).
