To test the battery:
- Remove your pet’s receiving collar from your pet.
- Bring the collar into the retention area of the restraint system and listen for the beeps of the collar.
- If the collar beeps or the test light comes on, the battery and collar are working.
Some invisible pet fences contain a battery tester with the fence system. Put it on the collar and run the Perimeter Wire through it. If the tester is on and you hear this warning on the collar, the battery is functioning properly. If you hear the alarm but no LEDs flash, replace the battery.
System reset can be as simple as replacing the batteries in the transmitter. Bring your dog and turn off the power at the door. Disconnect the transmitter. Look for metal objects around or above the fence.
- Press the button on the receiver. A control lamp on the receiver flashes.
- Adjust the distance from the Perimeter Wire to activate a warning alarm. Most transmitter boxes have a button or lever that you can use to change the distance.
- Replace the metal pins on the receiver.
If there is a wire break in the underground fence, the flashing green light (or solid green light) will go out and a beep will sound. The signal is adjusted by the digital remote control on the transmitter to create a signal field on both sides of the cable.
The collar works on batteries, which obviously wear out over time, but even if you pay close attention to how the system works, some dogs will learn to outsmart it. An invisible fence collar provides a shock through two teeth which must be in close contact with the skin.
If the invisible fence control panel beeps every second, the most likely problem is that there is a power outage somewhere on your property. If the invisible fence control panel beeps with a long pause between each beep, the backup battery may need to be replaced.
An invisible fence system * can cost over 2,000. You can do it yourself for around 300. We can help you. This free guide shows you how to install a comparable underground electric dog fence to pros like Invisible Fence * at a fraction of the cost.
Make sure the width limit is set to the optimal distance. Test the batteries in the collar. Test the fence to see if the collar works when you pass the fence. Activate the station selector. If the collar works, make sure your dog is well cared for so he can get close to the skin.
The electric fence does not have to be a complete circuit to function. The electric fence charger sends electricity to the electric fence about once per second. Then go back to the electric fence charger and complete the circuit. The animal receives a shock and keeps away from the fence.
Charging too frequently can shorten battery life. When the Receiver Indicator flashes red, charge the Receiver Collar. The system works by sending a radio signal through an underground wire (perimeter wire). Your pet wears a receiver collar that receives the signal.
If you move away from the transmitter and approach the limit value, the test lamp will light or you will hear the beep of the collar at the limit value. In this case the system works. When you are sure the system is working, reset the transmitter controls to their original settings.
To check the size of your pet’s collar, you should be able to place a finger between one of the collar inserts and the pet’s skin. If one finger doesn’t fit, the collar is too tight. If more than one finger fits, the collar is too loose.
PetSafe RF125 Transmitter Repair Verify that the replaceable fuse on the back of the device has not been and has been replaced. Check if the problem is caused by the transmitter by performing the short circuit test. Disconnect the transmitter from power and disconnect the fence and ground wires. Look for damaged electrical components.
