    Hi. I have been out of the game for a while but have a problem with a
    mates Esprit alarm I am trying to help him with.
    Returning from holiday he found the keypad has gone completely dead but
    the PIR sensors are still activating.
    We tried disconnecting and reconnecting the mains and the keypad sprang
    into life (along with the siren a few seconds later). However 24 hours
    later the keypad is dead again.

    I am thinking that this could be a power supply or battery problem. The
    LCD keypad would need more juice than the PIR's and I am guessing that
    is why it is dead and the sensors are not.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    It's entirely likely that you have a bad or loose connection behind the
    keypad. There's a connector that attaches to the board that is itself
    attached to the quad cable with B connectors (or should be).Pull the
    keypad off and wiggle the connections to see if you can make / break
    the connection. If not, the white connector itself is faulty or you
    have an intermittent break in the red or black wire somewhere

    Paradox panels will continue to run normally even with no keypad;
    however, you won't be able to do squat with the system of course
