Power 864 PC5020 setup after factory reset issue

I verified that the installer code was not lock via the powering up and listening for clicking relay. I then reset the system to factory default. The default master code 1234 and default installer code 5555 or 5020 does not work nor do I have a ready light on. System goes blank if I type @8 5555 and gives a long beeb. When I hit #, it flashes through the eight zones. And help is appreciated. It's a premier pro.

If it's a branded system, (they paid to have their logo put on the keypads) the installing company may have had the firmware modified to default to a different installer code.

If so, the motherboard is essentially bricked, short of a lucky guess at their installer code. Since you are starting over, a PC1832 or 1864 will be compatible with your existing keypads and devices...

Thanks for the reply. I got it unlocked and programed up. I still have an issue with the siren. It worked before, but after reseting to factory defaults it stop functioning. Everything is working accept the siren/bell. The default attributes are set to activate the siren for zones by factory defualt. I added a default turn off time and activated it. I seam to be missing something???

The siren output is just a 12v output. If your backup battery is too weak, there is an overload that kicks in to protect the system from excess current draw.

Simple test: If the siren is working if you connect the siren wires directly to the 12v battery, then you may have made a programming mistake.

It's definitely programing, exhausted all ideas on the issue?

There's really few things you can do that would disable the siren. What were the keystrokes you used to program the zones? Did you try to make changes in the zone attributes? (normally, not required).

Have to know _what_ you did to figure out where you went wrong.

Based on the information provided. You set the zones as follows:
Zone 1 - null/disabled
Zone 2 - null/disabled
Zone 3 - instant
Zone 4 - instant
Zone 5 - Delay 1
zone 6 - null/disabled
zone 7 - null/disabled
zone 8 - null/disabled

Was this your intention?

What is your actual zone list? (Please don't make us play "20 questions").

If you are reconfiguring an existing system, half the zones being null wouldn't make sense (null zones _can't_ trigger an alarm).

I appreciate the comments on replacing the pannel. All issues solved by recommending a new board, because it came with specifics on programing.
