Transmitter Non-RF Application Problems LEADS OFF INOP This INOP generally means that one of the patient leads has fallen off the patient. It can also indicate a fault within the transmitter. 1. A lead may have become disconnected from the electrode.
2. If all leads are connected and there is not a good signal, there may be a broken lead wire or the connection between the leadset and the transmitter is compromised due to dirt or corrosion. Remove the leadset and make certain the leadset connector in the top of the transmitter is not dirty or corroded.
INVALID LEADSET INOP This indicates that the transmitter has either detected a 4-wire leadset or an EASI ä ECG transmitter has a 3-wire leadset attached. Do the following: 1. If a 4-wire leadset has been installed, monitoring is not possible. Replace with a 3- or 5 wire leadset. a.
4. If the problem is not solved by Steps 1 - 3, then there may be a problem with the leadset switches not being detected properly. a. Check where the leadset attaches for dirt and clean as necessary. Leadset switches are located next to the reference and chest (standard ECG) or reference and “E”...
Battery INOPs This module tells how to deal with INOPs related to battery operation. These INOPs are: BATTERY WEAK REPLACE BATTERY Normally, either one of these INOP messages simply indicates the need to replace the battery in the transmitter generating the message. But, if the battery is replaced and the message still occurs, do the following.
1. The battery could be inserted improperly. Check that the terminals of the battery are oriented correctly with the battery contacts. 2. Open the battery door and check the battery contacts. If they are corroded, clean them. If they appear damaged, replace the battery contacts. Also, check the screws that connect the battery contacts to the Case Assembly.
ECG EQUIP MALF INOP This INOP indicates that either a software incompatibility has been found or a fault has been detected in the ECG hardware in the transmitter. 1. If the transmitter is an EASI ä ECG transmitter, this INOP indicates that the software in either the receiver mainframe or the central station cannot process EASI ä...
Transmitter SpO Problems EQUIP MALF INOP This INOP indicates there is a problem with the SpO circuits associated with the transmitter. The following procedure describes how to troubleshoot this problem: 1. The transducer may be bad. Change the transducer to see if this resolves the problem. 2.
2. Make certain that the light source and photo detector are opposite each other and that the light passes through the ateriolar bed. 3. Reposition the transducer to a site with higher perfusion. 4. Replace the transducer. 5. Replace the adapter cable. INTERFERENCE INOP This INOP can be caused if the level of ambient light is so high that the SpO...
NOISY SIGNAL INOP This INOP can be caused by excessive patient movement or electrical interference, which is seen as irregular pulse patterns. If this INOP appears, do the following. 1. Move the transducer to a site with less movement. 2. Reduce or remove any sources of electrical interference.
This communication link determines the course of action. However, there is another possibility to consider before re-booting the mainframe. If the telemetry system is being used with a Philips Information Center, make certain that the telemetry bed or beds are not in Standby Mode .
1. Check the overall operation of the receiver mainframe by re-booting it and observing the LEDs on the 40 MHz CPC card and the Utility CPU board. To re-boot the mainframe, push the power button to remove power and then push it again to restore power.
If the normal bootstrap sequence occurs, receiver Table 2. Utility CPU Board Step 4 LEDs Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 (Normal Operation) 1 Green 2 Green 3 Green 4 Green FAST FAST FAST BLINK BLINK BLINK 5 Green 6 Red mainframe hardware is probably working correctly.
6 Red 2. If the sequence in the table occurs, following is the probable cause of the problem. a. Refer to the Philips Telemetry System Compatibility Matrix Service Note to verify the compatibility between the Utility CPU and the CPC PCB.
3. If the sequence does not occur, do the following: a. Remove the SDN board and re-initialize the receiver mainframe. If the sequence occurs, replace the SDN board. b. Remove the Rack Interface board and re- initialize the receiver mainframe. If the sequence occurs, replace the Rack Interface board.
Receiver, Non-RF Problems NO RECEIVER INOP This INOP is generated when the telemetry system does not detect a receiver present for a configured receiver slot. This problem can occur in two ways -- in all or multiple channels or in a single channel. Depending on whether multiple or single channels are affected, the actions are different.
If the problem is in multiple channels... 1. Check to see if the rack interface to the receiver backplane cable is disconnected or broken. Replace the cable if it is broken. 2. Replace the Rack Interface PCB. 3. The receiver backplane is faulty. Replace the receiver backplane.
Other Problems Transmitter Button is pressed, but desired result does not occur The transmitter button on the transmitter can be configured using the Service Tool to do the following when pressed: • Start a recording for the patient at the Central Station when the patient presses the button, or •...
3. Check the operation of the transmitter button using Telemetry Service Tool or Wave Viewer. a. Make the infrared connection between the Telemetry Service Tool or Wave Viewer and the transmitter. b. Go to the Transmitter Information Screen Two on the Telemetry Service Tool or Wave Viewer.
RF Troubleshooting Procedures This section deals with troubleshooting problems in the RF portion of the Telemetry System. With RF, a variety of problems can result in the same symptom and a variety of symptoms can be the result of one problem. INVALID SIGNAL E01INOP This INOP is a special case of interference that indicates that the receiver has locked on to a M2601A transmitter,...
Frequent Dropouts and NO SIGNAL, WEAK SIGNAL, and TEL CANNOT ANALYZE INOPs on a Single Channel These symptoms indicate that the signal being received has invalid or corrupted RF data and the signal strength is not at an acceptable level. To isolate this fault, do the following: If the problem is occurring on a single channel: 1.
3. If the frequencies are set properly, use the Telemetry Service Tool or Wave Viewer to check the transmitter information. Refer to NO SIGNAL INOP and an RF OUT OF LOCK INOP at Telemetry Service Tool or Wave Viewer . 4.
7. The next step is to identify where the problem lies in the system. This can be done by changing the frequencies in both transmitters and receivers, to isolate a fault in a single channel, given there is at least one other good channel. The possibilities are: –...
b. If the problem moves to Transmitter B, the problem is not in Transmitter A (transmitter of the original bad channel). Proceed to Step 2. Step 2. Because the problem is not in Transmitter A, either Receiver A or the frequency itself is faulty. To isolate between the two, first change the receiver frequency of Receiver A to the frequency of the known good channel (Frequency 2).
Frequent Dropouts and NO SIGNAL, WEAK SIGNAL, and TEL CANNOT ANALYZE INOPs with Multiple Channels 1. For extended band systems - See Step 2 of the previous INOP for a Single Channel 2. Check that the antenna system has power - Antenna/Combiners, amplifiers, power tees, frequency converters, and filters should all have their LEDs lit.
If the blocking sources cannot be moved, the antenna will have to be repositioned. Contact a Philips Medical Systems service representative for assistance. 6. The antenna system may be inadequate. Contact a Philips Medical Systems service representative for assistance.
3. Remove the battery from the problem transmitter and monitor the RF History Strip for that channel. a. On-Channel or Narrowband Interference - is defined as an interference source that occupies the same bandwidth as the transmitter and only interferes with one channel or two frequency adjacent channels.
– Locate where the signal is entering the system. This can be done by removing branches from the antenna system to see when the system quiets down. Remember that patients being received by antennas that have been removed cannot be monitored. –...
