EQUIP MALF INOP
This INOP indicates there is a problem with the SpO
circuits associated with the transmitter. The following

1. The transducer may be bad. Change the transducer
to see if this resolves the problem.
2. The SpO
cable to see if this fixes the problem.
3. Open the transmitter and make certain the SpO
Connector cable is connected to the SpO
Make certain it is not damaged. If the cable is

5. Replace the SpO
6. If the problem persists, replace the Main PCB.
This INOP indicates that the SpO
erratic. This could be due to a faulty transducer or
incorrect positioning of the transducer. It could also be

too small. If this INOP appears, do the following.
1. Verify that the transducer is appropriate for the
