Factory default not working ?

Hi my neighbors alarm battery failed and took out the fuse within the panel (scantronic 9884 Es style)however I have changed the battery only to find the exit time is now only 10 seconds which is far too short. I have carried out a factory reset to default settings but the panel although it still works will not let me enter the programming menu. I have the user number which resets to default but the engineer number doesn’t. Has anyone got an answer please. I am a qualified contracting electrician with 40 plus years of experience in all sorts of work including alarms.

I have an old Scantronic ,this is what i did when had the same issue ,its worth a try ....

Take the power off the unit INCLUDING THE BATTERY (your external alarm will probably go off)
Open the panel and REMOVE the NVM chip.
Hold in the tamper switch and power the unit up with the front panel open. Keep holding the tamper in for the next few operations.
Key in 1,2,3,4
Key in 0, ENTER, 7890 and then release the tamper.
Power on
Refit NVM
Key in 9,8, ENTER
Hold in the tamper again and keep holding
Key in 0, ENTER,7,8,9,0 and then release tamper

You should now be able to close up the panel and reprogram.
