    Hi all,

    Hoping someone can give me some advice on replacing a duff battery for a Scantronic 9651. Our control panel was doing the usual alert beeps with the unit low battery warning and we could not get it to stop beeping every 15-30 mins. This carried on until 4am this morning so I'd like to avoid another sleepless night especially with a child in the house!

    I've watched a video on taking out the old battery and replacing it which seems simple enough but if I'm one of the unlucky ones that has a system which requires an engineer reset, I'm stuffed as I don't know where to start with that. What would happen with my system if i can't do an engineer reset, does it just keep beeping and can't be shut off?

    I've read the other threads that mention short circuiting NVM reset pins etc but I have no electrical eng knowledge at all so I wouldn't know where to start with any of that!

    Changing battery is simple.
    Until you open lid you will not know if tamper reset is by engineer code.
    Open lid
    Disconnect faulty battery
    Replace with new battery either 2.8/3.2/7.0 ah battery
    Replace lid ensuring lid is fitted back on correctly
    User code to reset.
    If at this point it requires a engineer code ,then ask how to do stage 1 reset. This has been posted numerous times on here.
