    I'm having a strange problem with a self-installed (and self monitored
    via pager) DSC 632 (PC1555MX).

    I've got a LCD5501Z32-433 keypad connected. I have 2 zones only, both
    are wireless contacts. I'm using two wireless keyfobs, and have it
    set up to page me.

    Everything works great - for a while.

    After time, I get a general system supervisory trouble. (*2 1 shows
    5, general system supervisory). The wireless contacts stop working
    ususally at this point also. I get a page indicating the same, (which
    i set in section 348, #8).

    When hear it start beeping and see a trouble 1 - 5, I've checked my
    module enrollment (using section 903) and see 1, 17. (1 keypad, 17
    5132 wireless in keypad).

    If I do a 902 and wait a bit, then press and hold 'reset', it seems to
    function again for a while but eventually this problem repeats.

    There's nothing else connected to the pannel (except a siren and EOL
    resistors) and it keeps doing this.

    I've tried the following:
    1 - Testing wireless contact placement, almost always get a 'good'
    2 - Reseting the panel (by shorting pgm1 and z1) etc\
    3 - Have reset the 5132 (using section 996)
    4 - Want to reset the keypad, but can't find info on how
    5 - 902 and a 'reset'. This corrects the problem but it comes back!!

    I'd really appreciate some help - I don't know what to do next.

    More details:

    Zones in Panel (1 - 8) have EOL resistors in them, not sure if they're
    needed. The keypad zone also has an EOL on it.

    Go to section 804 and then section 90 turn option 7 on. Very common problem
    with DSC wireless recievers. Option is to disable RF jam detect. Manual
    shows that option is enabled from factory but I have found only on the
    latest ones it is.

    It's got a tamper switch on the back, and it's got a metal springy
    thing that presses the switch in when the keypad is mounted against
    the wall.

    It doesn't seem to be this switch causing the problem, it generates a
    different trouble when I press/release it.

    Thanks I'll try that.
