Stop the beeping...Verizon fios...PLEASE?

Any idea what the internal warning speaker/beep-maker looks like? Only thing I see that may be it is like a little black cone surrounding something metal directly on the circuit board....

Help! Driving me nuts!

I have FIOS and have no idea what you're talking about. Why don't you call them.

If you have Fios, verizon installed a battery backup in case the electricity goes down...so home phone still works...
I don't have a home phone so this feature is not any use to me...when the battery goes dead, there is a warning BEEP that goes on every 30 minutes....
I have called them and all they can say is buy another battery....F that! I won't spend 40 bucks (cost on new battery) for something that I don't need...and didn't ask for in the first place.

If I remove the little speaker that I can't ID...that should do it!

Mine is doing that right now too. It's a conspiracy I tell you (haven't had a power cut since it was installed). It's in the basement, a loud guitar overwhelms it. Annoys the S.O.

Best, Pete.

In the top center of the circuit board there are 2 red buttons. The right one is the alarm silencer/tester. Push and release and the alarm will sound. Just to the right of that button is a black cylinder with a hole in the top. That is the alarm. Test the alarm again with your finger over the hole and the alarm will be very muffled. I used needle nosed pliers to pull it off and the annoying alarm is gone.

have had FIOS for 2+ yrs and have no clue what you're talking about ... did you have a power outage/ is your backup battery low/gone?

Your battery B/U may be defective. I'd call service, I've had FIOS for 2 yrs, never heard a beep, or a peep.....

I just went through this. The battery should last 2-3 years, that's why some of you have never experienced this.

Mine was defective, it was beeping after less than a year, so, they replaced it for free.
