Remove zone on DSC Power832/PC5015

Hi,
I would be grateful for some programming advice please.
I have found some posts in the forum with similar questions but I am reluctant to risk trying out my own interpretation of the programming in case I mess it up!
I have a DSC Power832/PC5015 alarm system – keypad LCD5501PZ, with wireless sensors. The smoke alarm is a WS4916EU and I want to remove it from the system (it has a fault and I have other smoke detectors). I have an amber light on my keypad and fault codes of 5 and 6 for zone 9 – presumably because the system can’t find the sensor, which is in zone 9.
So I believe I need to program the system to remove zone 9. I understand I can get into programming mode by entering *8 “installer’s code” - I need to discover what else I must enter after that. Zones 1 to 6 and zone 9 are currently programmed.
Thanks
Steve

You actually have to do two things: You need to delete the wireless device from the system, _and_ set the zone to an unused zone.

I'm going to guess that you have the 5132-433 wireless receiver on the system, since it doesn't sound like you have the wireless receiver keypad:

Receiver manual: https://cms.dsc.com/download2.php?t=1&id=13725

To remove the transmitter:
*8 [installer code]
804 (wireless programming)
09
000000 (overwrite serial number with zeros)
# until you exit programming

To set the zone to unused:
*8 [installer code]
002 (zone 9-16 definitions)
00 (change zone 9 zone type to "null")
# until you exit programming.

That _should_ do the trick.

Thanks very much for the reply. You are correct that I have a PC5132NB/433 receiver. Thanks also for the manuals links - I've downloaded them.

I've followed the instructions to nullify the wireless component in zone 9 and zone 9 itself - the keypad seemed to beep at the right times but the problem hasn't quite gone away.
I was getting an amber light on the keypad and fault codes 5 and 6 (when I pressed *2) and they were each for zone 9 (when I then pressed 5 and 6 to find the zone).
Now I have the amber light showing on my keypad and *2 still gives a fault code 5 but when I press 5 there is no zone shown.
I have also set the alarm and cleared it to see if that made any difference.

Is there some other step I might need to take to reset the fault condition?

I also noticed on another response you made for a PC1832 that you advised as below in blue - my board has a sticker PC5015 V2.84U which I guess is older so I still need to use section 002 to get to zone 9?

I should also say I have removed the batteries from the WS4916EU sensor but left it in its fitting on the ceiling.

Any further advice you have would be very welcome.

I did wonder if it would be worth going back and trying to reinstate everything - the zone, the ESN for the WS4916 and put the batteries back in - then nullify the zone and the component again?

Next you have to change the zone type to 00 for each zone that is deleted:
*8 [installer code]
001

xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx
(xx being the zone type for the first 16 zones, in order)
For zones that you don't want to change the value of, press any one of the Fire/Aux/Panic keys to step through to the next location.
Press # to exit programming

The newer models group their zones in groups of 16; the older models did groups of 8.

Since this was a fire zone; try doing a power cycle. Some of the older models tended to have troubles like this that would get "stuck" and a power cycle would clear it out. Power down (AC and Battery) and restore power (battery first). (No, you won't lose any programming; but you will need to set the clock)

WONDERFUL!! The power cycle worked - thanks very much again.
I also tested my siren when all the power was disconnected!

You've also given me the confidence to do a few other things (some key fobs that need enrolling and an extra sensor needs installing) - hopefully I'll cope with those on my own.

Thanks again

Steve
