I purchased a set of eas towers online (used). Installed them a couple of months ago and they worked fine. Now they have started to go off for no reason and will not stop beeping. Not sure what to do.

Anybody have any info on this problem?

EAS = Electronic Article Surveillance; the anti-theft towers that you walk through at most department and electronic stores.
