I was wondering if there wasn't a battery in there somewhere, that's good to know.

As with most modern computers, there is a battery in there somewhere. Otherwise it wouldn't keep accurate time between when you get it from the store/hospital/clinic and bring it home. Whether the other settings are retained by a battery or if they're (E)EPROMed in, I don't have that information.

It seem the unit need to be returned to ResMed via supplier, for this problem to be rectified

Hi dexter, welcome to the forum!

If you are still having problems, you can call the ResMed Customer Service line and give them your machine's serial number and they will let you know if it is still under warranty and eligible for free repair or replacement. The warrantee period is 2 years plus 3 months from date of manufacture if you don't have the original purchase receipt. (Or if you have the receipt, I suppose it would be 2 yrs from that date.)

From the ResMed web site:
"To speak with a ResMed Representative call 800.424.0737 (Monday – Friday, 5:30am – 5:00pm PST)" ResMed is in San Diego California, which today changed to daylight savings time.

ResMed does not accept returns directly from end users. You would need to return it to any DME provider who is willing to call ResMed to ask for an RMA (Return Material Authorization) from ResMed.

ResMed does not care which DME obtains the RMA and sends the unit to them for repair; it doesn't need to be the DME you bought it from. I guess ResMed just wants an independent professional (not the patient) to look at the machine for them and verify it is not working correctly and should be sent in for warrantee repair or replacement.

I would think any DME would be happy to do this for you to gain your future business for masks and supplies (which are very profitable for DMEs), but if you are unable to find a brick & mortor DME to send it in for you, I think suppliers 27 and 28 on the Suppliers List (the Suppliers List is at the top of just about all our forum pages) may be able to help. (I haven't personally used suppliers 27 and/or 28, though, so I can't offer a recommendation.)

Good luck,
--- Vaughn
