NO LIGHT ON MAIN BOX DOESN'T SOUND WHEN ALARM IS TRIGGERED

There is no light on the main box and when alarm is triggered the bell box sounds outside and a low pitch alarm comes from the actual keypad. I thought maybe the battery was flat when i took the cover off the box the alarm sounded i switched the mains of and this stoped but when i put the mains back on the red light still isnt illuminated and no sound comes from the main box when alarm is triggered. Do i just need a new battery put in the box or could this be a bit more of a serious problem although the alarm works in a sense and the bell box outside is very loud sometimes when the alarm is triggered and im in the house i dont know it has gone off as the main box doesnt make a sound. The keypad does but this is really quiet and can not be heard if im upstairs or in a different room.

It sounds like you need a new battery. When was it last changed? Anything over 5 years old should be replaced, sooner if it's living in an airing cupboard.

Tell us the make and model of the alarm and which light you're talking about and we may be able to help more. :rolleyes:

By the look of the battery i would say well over 5 years i can buy one as i know what type is needed with regards to the light.the main internal box has a small red light which says power next to it this isnt illuminated even though it is wired up to the mains. If i get a new battery and put it in is it going to start going off uncontrollably? I live in a apartment and have two over neighbors on my floor and dont want to be disturbing them.Thanks for your help.

Oh boy, just the way to get help.

What was that about double posts?

And don't shout, very childish.

Spat dummy because I told him not to start two posts about the same problem.... Confusing everyone and having to repeat himself twice.....

Got a engineer out this morning (someone who actually knows what there talking about) nothing to do with the internal speaker. All fixed and working fine and was covered under house insurance so didn't cost me a penny. And just for the record i didn't spit my dummy out, im new to the website and didn't realize making two posts would cause so much confusion for God sake! I will simply not be spoke to by the likes of "Sparkey" or whatever your name is looking at past post you have written to over members of the public in the same way, your a very rude individual and the best thing this website could do is remove you, worse experience ever and i will be making a complaint and if i knew who you really where and where you lived i would gladly come over and put your ****ing head through a brick wall ****ing little tosser! BYE!

Couldn't agree more. Perhaps he'll report himself for the starred abuse he gave you. He did say BYE, so perhaps he has gone, we'll see.

Who cares? At least he won't back...

I couldn't believe that a newbie asking for help had come out with all that (undeserved) vitriol. :eek:
