Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Such a code must be entered exactly to the digit.

If the code has an UPPER CASE letter in it, for instance, if 'A' is in it, then you must not enter 'a'.

Is the code in any way ambiguous as written down? for instance, is there an 'S' that might be a '5' ? or is it clearly printed out by a computer printer for instance?

no 5 digits is all it is

Yes, that is what it is.

How many times have you entered the code so far?
