Ademco 4110xm Check 7334
« on: November 13, 2018, 12:00:40 AM »
Hello all,

I had a perfectly working Ademco 4110xm that now shows check 73 34 after some time of being armed. The error does not occur during the first 30 minutes of the being armed. It is a vacant house so we don't know exactly how long it takes the error to pop up. When entering the house a day later with the system still armed, the beeping is much faster in speed and the system can not be rearmed without powering down the system.

This occurred after my real estate agent tried to program a new user code with the wrong directions. He thought there is a separate installer and master code so he tried changing #20 using various values - *2, *20, *3, *30, #2, #20, #30, etc. followed by the new master code which is one digit from the check code(s). Unsure what he entered before powering down or entering *98 or *99.

I was able to get the right instructions and entered programming and found that:
* 3 4 ZONE 4 RESPONSE TYPE = 03
* 7 3 AC RESTORE REPORT CODE = 00

I am not sure if these are the correct values for these fields nor am I certain if the check code of 73 34 is for these fields.

I was successful in adding two new user codes. Again, the master code is almost the same as the check code.

Any help you can provide will be appreciated.

There is no reason that I can think of that a 4110XM would show those digits.  These panels are extremely simple and don't have any expansion capability.  I have also never seen any Ademco standard keypad show 4 digits.  At first I thought you might be stuck in programming, but that can't be the case since you're arming and disarming it.

I would honestly default the panel and start over.  You can do all programming with the keypad you have, and it's not too complicated.  You can default the panel by going into programming and pressing *97.  On the 4110s, this sets all data fields to 0, including the master code and zones, it's not like most panels that have a factory default program.  When this is done, the master code will be set to 0000.

If the system is currently monitored, you may want to take this matter up with your alarm company.  The receiver phone number, account number, communication format, and reporting codes (if it's not Contact ID) will need to be reprogrammed.  They may also have a copy of the panel's program from before this happened, and can re-download it to the panel following a default.  There aren't too many issues where defaulting a panel will fix a problem, but it definitely sounds like something got corrupted and a lot of times, entering incorrect or out-of-range data in a field can cause inexplicable problems (like this).  I found a copy of the programming book on panelguides.  I would use that as a guide and as you're programming, go into ALL data fields and set each one to what the manual indicates is the factory default, except fields you want to change (master code, zone responses, etc).  This way, no fields are left at 0 following the *97 unless they're supposed to be.

Fields 34 and 73 are programmed normally, that is, the data in there is not unusual.

Thanks for the reply.

The codes show up as 73 and then 34. 

I have pulled all the data from all fields.

Fields 21-23 are set to 07.  From what I have found, these fields only support 00 or 01.  Also I have field 24 set to 02 08.  Some of the programing guides say 24 is to be left blank and some make no mention of field 24.

Thoughts?

Thanks...

If I default the panel, will I lose any wireless parameters or connectivity to what I assume is the wireless module?

Thanks...

I don't know if this will help.

In the Ademco document above, 73 and 74 do not apply to the 4110 series panel.  The 4110 series has virtually no expansion capability, so many of the system zones like that, that we'd see on a larger Vista panel, do not exist.

Are you sure that's a wireless receiver connected?  Is it an Ademco brand, or is it something like Linear?  If it's an Ademco, it's using the old 5700 series wireless.  You won't really "lose" anything, do you know what your current zones are?  The transmitters have DIP switches set to be a specific zone number.  I'm looking at the 4110XM installation book on alarmhow.net and it shows that the wireless zones are preset to specific responses, for example, transmitters that are set to zones 10-13 will be delay zones, etc.  It looks like you'll need to program the same house ID number that is currently programmed into the system now, in field 24.

I changed field 2 from 07 to 00.  That change caused field 22 to change from 07 to 00 and 23 from 07 to 01.  I am still getting this error that prevents arming the system without a power cycle.  I also find it odd that these errors taking awhile to pop up. 

I took some pics of the modules that I can not post. Site says  "The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved." 

The wireless module appears to be a SA4281M.

I don't want to default the system until I am certain I can restore functionality.

Thanks...

I could not post pictures, either, but someone else did so by uploading to

and then posted the link in the message.  Check out

Thanks.  I will try to post a link to my Flikr account.

Ok, so I checked a different version of the programming manual and it looks like you CAN have a zone 34.  According to this manual (on panelguides.com), zones 30-43 are interior follower (motion detector) zones. 

I still can't explain where the 73 comes from, though.

I would go into programming and view the data in fields 76 through 83 and see if any of the transmitters are assigned to zones 34 or 73, and we can go from there.

Sorry for the delay.  Was on vaca for the holiday.

I have 2 motions and a bunch of wireless window sensors.

Field data:
33 - 03
34 - 03
35 - 03
36 - 04
37 - 07
38 - 02
39 - 00
40 - blank
41 - 18004466703
42 - blank
43 - 00 02 01


73 - 00 00
74 - 00 00
75 - 00 00
76 - 01 03 03 00
77 - 03 04 01 07
78 - 07 03 04 01
79 - 00 00 03 00
80 - 01 07 03 00
81 - 01 08 03 00
82 - 00 00 00 00
83 - 00 00 00 00

What is really weird is the alarm functions fine if armed for an hour or so.  No fast beeping upon entry, no errors and the system can be rearmed.  If left armed overnight, I get the fast beeping on entry and errors 73 34.  I was trying to create a user code very close to 7334 causing all of this to happen....

Ideas?

Thanks for the help...

I think we may be on to something here.

According to my 4110XM manual, field 78 is the programming for the third transmitter.  The data is four digits, the first two are the zone number of the third transmitter, and the report code.  If your #78 reveals 7-3-4-1, that SHOULD mean "transmitter 3" is assigned to zone 73, report code 41. 

Following the same logic, if #77 shows 3, 4, 1, 7, it would mean that "transmitter 2" is assigned to zone 34, report code 17.

The report code isn't really important, but we could be looking at a problem with some wireless transmitters.   It's starting to make sense, since a wireless device that's either not checking in, or in tamper would not immediately show up when coming out of programming or restarting the panel - it would happen an hour or two later, during the transmitter's next check-in, or when the system doesn't hear the check-in from that transmitter.

When the system doesn't "hear" any signals from a transmitter for a while, it shows "check" and that zone number.  If transmitters 2 and 3 are assigned to zones 34 and 73, respectively, we may have just hit the nail on the head.  Nothing I have shows that 73 is a valid zone number on the 4110XM, so is it possible that *787341 was entered by accident in programming?

I would go around the house, open each door and window that has a transmitter, and get the zone number that shows up.  You may find the door or window, or glassbreak or motion, etc that is assigned to 73 and 34, or you may have to use the process of elimination to see which two don't work.  I think you're going to have to move transmitter "3" off of zone 73 anyways.  It would really help to know if this transmitter exists.
