I have a 6 button On/Off KPL that when I push button A, button B turns on. I have a scene programmed to button B but it does not activate it. Scene on B only activates when I push B. I have to manually turn off B, so it does not look like Scene B is on when I push A. I tried to reset the KPL but nothing changes, any ideas. Thanks.

Are you using an app or other software to program these scenes? Which version, on which platform?

What, specifically, did you do to reset the KPL? A factory reset would have deleted all your scenes on that KPL.

Also, does the keypad have the default face on it, with one big On button, one big Off, and buttons a-d only?

Check your scene. You may have inadvertently added the B button to the A scene for it to turn on.

The issue with the button was present before I started using the ISY 994i for programming. I believe I was testing some sort of keypad programming that would lit more than one button by only pressing one; can't remember. I thought a factory reset would take care of it.

I performed a factory reset to the KPL, but it made no difference.

The default face is on the keypad.

Button A runs the "Security" program that randomly turn on different lights @ different times. Button B is for turning ceiling fans On. When I push A , B turns on but the fans do not run. If I turn B Off, then On, fans will run. That is why so confusing, pushing button A turns B On, but the B scene does not run.

Hold button A for 10 seconds until it starts to flash, that値l put it in linking mode and make the Set button flash green. Let go. Hold button A again for another 10 seconds or so, that値l put it into unlinking mode and will cause the Set button to start flashing red. Now hold button B for 10 seconds. It値l double beep and stop flashing, and the buttons will operate independently.

Thank you very much. That solved the problem, even though the set button did not flashed green or red. Thanks again.

No worries, the multi-color Set button LED feature was added later. Good to hear everything is working as expected!
