I've got a message on my Keypad - what does it mean?
If you've got a message on your Keypad, here's what it could mean.
Accepted: Your top up code has been accepted. Your Keypad will show the amount of electricity you have bought followed by the word ‘account’ and the total amount of credit you have.
Rejected: The meter has rejected the top up code. This will be followed by a message telling you why the number was rejected. If this appears wait until the fault message clears and start from the beginning again.
Duplicate: This top up code has already been added to your Keypad. Wait until the message clears, press the ‘*’ button and enter the new top up code. Make sure it’s not one you’ve used before. If you press button ‘4’ you can see the last five top up codes entered into your Keypad.
Incorrect: You have entered the incorrect top up code. Wait until the message clears, press the ‘*’ button and then re-enter the number.
Wrong Tar: You have not entered the most recent tariff change code which we issue when there have been changes to the rate your electricity is charged. If you have lost your tariff change code, here's how to find it. Once you have entered the tariff change code you will be able to enter the last top up code you bought. If you need help with this outside our working hours, or your electricity supply is off, please call Northern Ireland Electricity Networks on 03457 643 643 (available 24 hours a day, seven days a week).
Credit Hi: You have too much credit on your meter (the maximum limit is £999.99). Keep your top up code in a safe place until you have used up some credit and then you can use it.
Error: There has been a delay of more than 20 seconds between entering each digit, you may need to re-enter your top-up code more quickly.
Kblock: This means that your top up code has been rejected five times in a row. Wait until the message clears, then re-enter your top up code.
