Customer Question
I have been opening...

I have been opening my safe without any problem. However, it suddenly would not open with the same code. I replaced the batteries with no change at all.

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your safe or home security system?

Sentry

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your home security system?

I entered the same code that I have always used.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Security Expert to know before I connect you?

No thank you.

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

Can you tell me the model of the safe?
Do you hear a click after putting in the code? Or do you get a flashing red/***** *****ght, or some beeps after?
