Question

Why ain't it workin' right?

Answer

If you have problems answering these questions, please refer to Protector Plus (DS7000) Message Dialer Quick Setup.

1) Is this A. the first time this system has been set up, or B. has it been working in the past?

2) Are you having problems arming the console?

  • Y: Go to step 3.
  • N: Go to step 5.

3) Put the console in RUN1 mode, then push the ARM button on a KR10A keychain remote, or press ARM AWAY on a SH624 remote set to MIN. What happens?

4) OK, it sounds like your system is arming. On the same remote, press DISARM, then ARM again. Do you hear two chimes then one chime?

  • Y: It sounds like your console is arming and disarming fine. Go to step 5.
  • N: Either that remote or the console may have an issue. Please reprogram the console without that remote and see if the problem persists.

5) Does the console beep five times about once an hour?

6) Are you having problems triggering the alarm once the console has been armed?

  • Y: Clear out the console, then reprogram it and test it with only one remote control and one Door/Window Sensor: Protector Plus (DS7000) Message Dialer Quick Setup; if the problem persists across multiple sensors your console may have an issue.
  • N: Go to step 15.

7) When you trigger the console, does your cellphone ring?

  • Y: Go to step 8.
  • N: Go to step 11.

8) If you pick up a telephone on the same line as the console, do you hear a dialtone?

  • Y: Go to step 12.
  • N: You will need to contact your telephony service provider's technical support department.

9) Do you need to dial any numbers, like 9, to place an outgoing call? If so, did you program that code at the beginning of each stored number?

  • INITIAL NO or YES then YES: Go to step 11.
  • YES THEN NO: You will need to reprogram the phone numbers, putting the necessary code first. Please call 800-442-5138 for additional technical support; also reference the Quick Setup procedure.

10) Right as the alarm begins to sound, do you hear your message on the console's speaker?

  • Y: Please call 800-442-5138; your console may have an issue.
  • N: Please email techpriority@x10.com with a detailed description of your issue.

11) Do you hear your message play back?

  • Y: Go to step 12.
  • N: Go to step 10.

12) If you press 0 while the message is playing back, does the alarm stop blaring?

  • Y: Go to step 13.
  • N: Go to step 14.

  • Y: It sounds like your dialer is working correctly. Go to step 1.
  • N: Please call 800-442-5138; your console may have an issue.

14) Not all cellphones transmit the 0 code correctly. If you have the PS561 call a different land-line phone instead, can you press 0 to listen in?

  • Y: Your cellphone is not compatible with the console; you will not be able to cancel the alarm or listen in from it.
  • N: Please call 800-442-5138; your console may have an issue.
