CLEANING

Make sure a battery is installed when cleaning the FR3, to keep fluids out of the device. The system
case, if used, and the outside of the FR3, including the pads connector socket, can be cleaned with a
soft cloth dampened in isopropyl alcohol (70% solution) in water, ammonia-based cleaners, mild soap
and water, or sodium hypochlorite (chlorine bleach 3% solution in water). Do not use abrasive
materials, cleaners, strong solvents such as acetone or acetone-based cleaners, or enzymatic cleaners.
CAUTION: Do not immerse any portion of the FR3 in water or other fluids. Do not allow fluids to
enter the FR3. Avoid spilling any fluids on the FR3 or accessories. Spilling fluids into the FR3 may
damage it or present a fire or shock hazard. Do not sterilize the FR3 or its accessories.

TROUBLESHOOTING

INDICATORS

The green Ready light is the signal that tells you if the FR3 is ready for use. Alert chirps tell you if the
FR3 needs attention.

chirps
Ready light off, FR3

screen is blank

RECOMMENDED ACTION IN AN EMERGENCY

If the green Ready light is flashing, press the On/Off button to turn on the FR3 and then follow all voice
and text prompts. If the green Ready light is off and the FR3 is chirping, the FR3 may still be able to be
used to treat a victim of SCA. Press the On/Off button and then follow all voice and text prompts.
In the unlikely event that the device becomes unresponsive during use, press the On/Off button once,
wait one second, then press it again firmly. If this does not clear the problem, remove and reinstall the
battery or replace it with a new FR3 battery, if available. If this still does not clear the problem, do not
use the FR3.
If you are able to complete emergency use of the FR3, but cannot clear the problem as instructed on
the status screen and the green Ready light is not flashing after the FR3 is put into standby, contact
Philips at www.philips.com/AEDSupport for technical support.

The FR3 is in use or is conducting a self-test.
If the FR3 is giving single chirps, press the On/Off button to start the FR3. When voice

starts flashing, the FR3 has passed the self-test and is therefore ready for use.
