How to determine trouble condition on a DSC 1555 panel
On Some DSC LCD Fixed keypads, a trouble is indicated by this symbol: which can be confused for the Medical Panic button. Here's how to determine what the trouble condition is:
- Press *2 on the keypad.
- Any of the numbers 1 – 8 may show up, indicating one or more of 8 possible trouble types
- 1 = Service Required (See Below)
- 2 = AC Fail
- 3 = Telco Trouble
- 4 = Comm Failure
- 5 = Zone Fault (press 5 for a list of zone numbers)
- 6 = Zone Tamper (press 6 for a list of zone numbers)
- 7 = Low Battery (non-system) (See Below)
- 8 = Lost Clock Setting
- When a 1 is indicated, pressing 1 again will show a number or numbers indicating the type of service required:
- 1 = Low System Battery
- 2 = Bell Circuit Trouble
- 3 = General Trouble
- 4 = General Tamper (such as keypad tamper)
- 5 = System Supervisory (such as for an expansion module)
- 6 = RF Jam
- 7 = PC5204 (Power Supply) Trouble Low Battery
- 8 = PC5204 (Power Supply) Trouble AC Loss
- When a 7 is displayed, this indicates an RF Zone has a Low Battery. By pressing 7 again:
- 1 keypad beep plus Zone Number or Numbers indicate which zones are experiencing Low Battery
- Press 7 again, 2 beeps plus zone numbers 1 – 4 lit indicate a handheld RF Keypad with a low battery
- Press 7 again, 3 beeps plus zone numbers 1 – 8 or 1 – 16 indicate wireless keys with low battery.
- To Exit this mode when finished, press # until the display returns to normal. This will back you out one screen at a time.
