I am unable to locate the answer to this question in the manual or searching this site.
I am looking for a way to disarm the "phone trouble" notification for my NetworX NX-148E or silence it.  When the phone line goes down, the keypad starts chirping appropriately but cannot be silenced olonger than a few seconds.  It is very annoying to have it continuously going off until the phone service is returned.  Is there a way to silence or stop it?
Thank you.

Hello and welcome to the Forum.

There are a couple of ways to do what you want but, it would be helpful to know what model panel you have other than the NX-148E which is just the keypad model.

It could be a NX4, NX6, NX8, NX8-V2 or NX8E??

However, when it goes into trouble or Line Fault you only need to enter your code and it will stop the beeping.

BTW the reason for this feature is to alert you that someone may have cut your phone line so as to stop any communication to a Central Station while they broke into your house. 

To turn it off you will need the Go to Program Code.

Hope that helps.

thank you.
It is a NX6v2 but you have answered my question.
I swear I tried that and it only stopped it temporarily, but I just unplugged the line to test it and it worked.   I feel like an idiot however I very much appreciate your help.

Sometimes being an "idiot" can be helpful.

It is possible that the following can happen.

Phone line down - keypad beeping  -  enter code - Phone line up - Phone line down - keypad beeping  ?? - frustration -  post message - get answer - feel like an idiot.  

That could all happen in less than 60 seconds.

Hope you feel better now. Grin
