Customer Question
Just put batteries in...

Just put batteries in new safe, someone lost book, I think it is a SFW123TTC. How do I program combination?

Contractor's Assistant: How long have you had your SFW123TTC?

A month or so, business just opened 2 weeks ago. No one has tried to operate safe until I came in today.

Contractor's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

Just put in batteries.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?

That's all.

Hello… my name is ***** ***** I am very knowledgeable in this subject to help answer your question, would you like my expert advice today?

Try 44718, if that doesn't work you will need to contact Sentry for assistance

https://www.sentrysafe.com/support/product-manuals/SFW123TTC

Unfortunately this is not a quick fix for obvious security reasons. What you'll need to do is contact Sentry directly, see link above, and scroll down to the lost key combination section under support. You can also download the user manual for that model if you need one.
