Reset the DSC Alexor to factory default

by admin on December 16th, 2010

Now here are the areas in the programming you need to do it. But remember you still need the Installer Code. If you don’t have it theirs a reason. Unless your alarm guy went out of business (unlikely) you need to pay for your panel and get it from him.

But if you don’t care: Hard Reset
A hard reset performs the identical function as above. It is used when the Installer code is unknown or the keypad is
not communicating with the alarm system. See steps below:
• Power down the system.
• Remove the front cover of the PC9155.
• On the terminal block, jumper I/O terminal 1 to I/O terminal 2 with nothing else connected to these two terminals.
• Power up the system for 20 seconds. (5 beeps sound to indicate that the reset has been successful).
• Power down the system and remove the jumper.
Label programming is stored in the system and locally at the keypads.
To retain label programming after performing a system reset (hard or soft) you must rebroadcast the labels by entering

[996] Restore Wireless Default Programming All programming in section

[804] Wireless Device Programming returns to the factory defaults.

[998] Restore Panel Default Programming All programming in the PC9155 returns to the factory defaults, except for the Wireless Device Programming sections.

[999] Restore Factory Default Programming
All programming, including wireless device programming, returns to the factory defaults.

  1. I have a DSC system and I need the installer code. It is not an Alexor. Are the older hardwired only systems reset the same way? I/O 1 to I/o 2?

    Thanks in advance!

      The process for a hardwire panel is the same, but the terminals you need to jumper are PGM1 and Z1.
