  1. OK I have the answer: On the later versions of the system software for the PC5051, in order to enable local access to programming mode by an engineer, the user first has to enable DLS using the master code. So to be specific the user should key: * 6 [MASTER CODE] 5 # At this point the engineer can enter programming mode via: * 8 [ENGINEER CODE] etc... The engineering access expires after a set period (probably 15 mins to an hour) and if there are tampers open the panel will alarm at that point.
  2. Yup - I think I might have to; although (1) it actually works pretty well, although it's frustrating not to be able to get into programming mode any more; and (2) it'd be a right PitA replacing those of the sensors that are wireless
  3. Hi all - many apologies for the cross-posting but I should have posted in this area to start with. OK this relates to one of those old 'British Gas' versions of the DSC 5015 panel, with the 'V2.81 BG' firmware. I got an engineer out recently to help me default the panel for me and reset the installer and master codes. All fine, and I've been successfully entering/using programming mode via the *8[installer code]. But last week I decided to fully power down the system (AC + battery) while I did some work on the wiring; and now when I try to enter programming
  4. Thanks for the reply - yep; tried arm/disarm with master code; view alarm history; view 'troubles'; full system test (requires master code) and even a full power cycle - no dice. Only remaining option at this stage is to default the panel (fortunately I had removed the installer lockout before this episode, thank goodness, and I know the default installer code) but I'm trying to avoid that as I will have to go thru and reset the zone attributes (rolls eyes). This British Gas firmware build is a right PitA to be honest - I'd prefer it if I could get hold of a vanilla V2.2 EPROM for
