I can't find a lot about this system online, but my home had one installed when I bought it. One of the keypads broke which was an old potentiometer with a punch down block in the back. The new AK-4 keypad that I replaced it with has a RJ45 jack. I popped an RJ45 to the end of the CAT5e and plugged it in... nothing. Was furious after waiting a week for it to come in, then when I was going to pop the cable out and rebox it I found out that if you push and hold the Cat5 into the jack it worked...which is obvious not acceptable. Tried 9 or 10 different cables after, both self made and commercial, all had the same damn problem. Now my question is... has anyone by any chance had this issue? Is it a problem  with their jack? Or, is it just that I got a dud unit?

 

Thanks guys.
