Veritas 8 Power light flashing?
05-01-2011 02:38 PM


Was wondering if you could advise me as to the problem with my house alarm.

I have a Veritas 8 alarm and it has been in good working order for the last three years, it is 6 years old.

The unset green light on the key pad is flashing constantly and I cannot set it as it makes a different beeping noise and wont set.

Most forums suggest I call an engineer as the pre set time for service may have elapsed?

Hoping you may have a different suggestion.

The power light on the control panel is a status indicator for the battery charging circuit, A steady light meaning normal. A flashing light means action required - mains power can still be present
Always use a suitable mains test instrument to confirm power is no longer present.......

The above is taken from the Veritas 8 manual - Having not worked on one for a while I take it you will need a new back-up battery in the control panel - Other panels also indicate a blown fuse in the same way.

Flashing green light can mean either dead battery or no mains supply. Wise words re mains.
