Installed DSC 1832, having trouble programming... (with video)

I just installed a brand new DSC 1832, using existing keypads... Haven't equipped all the sensors and everything just trying to make sure everything is up and running properly so far... I'm not even able to program the time (*6, 1234, 1, etc.etc.) You can see the video to see what's happening to me below:

It looks like you have a LCD 5501 keypad. The instruction for the new system and new type keypads aren't quite the same. You are showing a bunch of open zones, because DSC panels default to requiring end of line resistors, but nearly all DSC installers turn the requirement off in programming, so I'll wager that all your zones are just NC loops.

Here's the manual for the keypads you have: http://www.alarmhow.net/manuals/DSC/...n%20Manual.pdf

Essentially, you have to treat these as a LED style keypad, where programming is concerned.

Thanks for the tip Ron. I've read through the keypad's manual and it doesn't cover a lot of things I need (like how to disable the resistors requirement), and meanwhile the manual for the board itself doesn't address the codes for my keypad.

I took a gamble and figured I would just unplug EVERYTHING except my keypad and just try to clear the trouble signal. I've went into 902 and waiting for more than 1 minute hoping to clear everything out and it's still displaying 1,2,3,4,5,6 when I exit programming mode. My thought is that's because I need to disable the resistors requirement as you suggested.

Any tip on how to go about disabling this with this keypad and board combo?

You disable the resistor requirement in system programming. Do you have the installer manual for the PC1832? http://www.gargoylesecurity.com/Down...STALLATION.pdf

DSC: I defaulted my panel and now all of the zones show "open".
A lot of DSC panel installers choose to not use the End of Line Resistors (for a myriad of reasons) and instead choose to use a feature in the programming that turns off the requirement. When the panel is defaulted, this requirement is turned back on.

The specific location that has to be changed will vary by model, but will usually be in the system options sections of the program.

On the most common, the "Power series" panels (PC 1555, PC 5010, PC 5020, PC 1616, PC 1832, PC 1864, and their variants), this will be programming location 13 where you turn ON Option 1 to disable the need for resistors.
