[Equipment] BiPAP Repair
#11
(06-25-2014, 07:08 PM)Sleepster Wrote: Anybody know how to repair a PRS1 BiPAP? Mine is about 2.5 years old and it's starting to malfunction. It beeps, shuts itself off, then beeps and starts back up again. I have the auto-on feature enabled so that probably explains why it starts back up, sometimes I have to take a couple breaths to get get it started again.

If you're lucky, it's just a bad memory card. Remove the memory card and see if it still beeps.

Other than that, the only option I can see is to send it back, since AFAIK, they don't release any schematics.

If you're going to throw it out if it's broken, you might as well open it up and look. If you're lucky, you'll find something repairable like corrosion, water, an air duct that's cracked or dislodged, a bad PC board trace or possibly a sensor you could order from a 3rd party.

Last night it shut down and started beeping repeatedly. Got the "Service Required" fatal error. Rebooting fixed the problem. My wife heard it, too, at 4 am. So ... tonight should be an adventure.

From the user manual, see post #12 for the link
Service Required: Press either the wheel or ramp button to silence the alert.
Remove the power supply cord from the device to remove power. Plug the cord back into the device’s power inlet to restore power.
If the alert continues to occur, contact your home care provider.
