    I hoping someone can help me on programming this keypad. I just
    replaced my LCD-5501z keypad with the alpha numeric LCD-5500Z keypad
    on a DSC PC-1555 system. Everything went well with the change and
    everything seem to be working. The only thing I'm have a problem is
    with enabling the fire enable and panic enable keys on the keypad.
    When I press both keys for over two seconds, nothing happened, this
    was functioning with my old keypad. I've look thru the install manual
    for the PC-1555. In appendix B, its the section for programming LCD
    keypad, I tried to follow along but it doesn't match up. There a
    [64]key option for Fire keys enable and Panic key enabled. I tried
    the following sequence:
    * 8 {installer code}
    When I put it 064, it beep as a invalid code. I'm I doing something
    I would appreciate any help, I've tried everything..
  2. Almost everything.
    After *8 [installer code] press * to enter keypad programming.

    Thank you very much for you response, it worked with code 074. Is
    there some code to enter to determine which version software I have
    installed on the LCD-5500Z keyboard. Also Bob Bass website had several
    installation manual for the DSC PC-1555 alarm system, based on US UL
    certified and the software version number, should I be looking for
    something on the system to match with the installation manual. I'm
    going to install a few smoke detector with my system and not sure if I
    will need a two or four wire type.

    Thanks in Advance

    Yes it does, but I never can get from the control panel in the closet to the
    keypad at the front door quickly enough to see it.

    Power cycle the keypad only @ the keypad.

  6. Yes, thank you. I guess I needed to add a smiley.

    Not a smart move with a supervised keypad

    What's the big deal ? Not that it is going to damage anything.

    I've seen those panels do strange things ranging from arming the 2nd
    partition of an 832 when the 2nd partition wasn't enabled and I've seen
    keypads go bad.
  11. Jeez, doesn't anyone here have a sense of humor??

    I had visions of you running many many times between panel and keypad before
    figuring that one out :)

    "Running?" Don't you mean "buzzing"? :)
  15. I finally just rigged up a series of mirrors, but then it was backwards.
