    Hi Guys,

    Recently our C&K alarm system has become unsresponsive. The backlight is on in the code panel and the buttons make a sound when you press them but the mains light is no longer on and nothing happens when we try set the alarm. I’ve opened the box and the alarm and original battery were installed 20 years ago (we’ve only been in just over 4). Is it a case of needing to replace the battery? We’ve had no work done it was just a case of it happening over night. We were considering a new cctv alarm system anyway but can’t afford that just yet. I’ve attached a few photos.

    Cheers

    Remove battery and mains supply ( you can pull off the transformer plug on the top left of the pcb ) wait 10 seconds then plug it back on , now try your code at the keypad ( if code doesn’t not work try 1234 ) that battery is knackered as you can see from the ripples in the case , replace battery and it should be ok
