Good evening. I`d like to have a safe repairman come to my house & repair my Sentry safe with push in lock & digital pad with four bateries which are no longer together.

Technician's Assistant: Are you trying to access your DVR using a computer, or on the DVR itself?

Tying

Technician's Assistant: Did you buy your DVR new or did you receive it secondhand? Do you have an email address on file for your DVR?

We are not talking about a DVR. We are talking about a Sentry Safe with pus in lock & keypad

Hello and sorry to hear you're having trouble with the safe.

If you are just having an issue with the batteries, I can tell you how to change them yourself.

If there is another problem and you'd rather have someone out, please let me know your zip code and I can help you find a local safesmith that can work on it for you.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
