I had been using an old cpap machine (Resmed Autoset T) for around 12 years until it recently gave up the ghost and I purchased a second hand S8 autoset II yesterday
I was using my old machine in autoset mode
The S8 is set to CPAP mode for the previous person
I downloaded the clinitian manual for the S8 and noticed I can choose between CAPAP mode and Autoset mode
The trouble is that the S8 appears to be locked in CPAP mode with the menu not offering a "change" option when CPAP mode appears in settings
Just wondering if anyone is aware of how to get the S8 to change to Autoset mode from here?
Is there some function that enables the clinitian to lock the machine into CPAP mode only, preventing the user from altering the settings?
If you read the clinical manual and can get into the clinical menu the directions in the manual should tell you how to change to AUTO. You have to follow the manual instructions to enter the clinical menu. Good luck.. The S8 is a fine machine.
Thanks for that
The manual only says to follow the menus in settings until I come to the CPAP entry. At this point there should be an option to select "change"which presumably would allow me to then select Autoset.
The problem is that when the CPAP setting is displayed, there is no change option appearing so I can't change the machine to Autoset mode
It's as if the machine is locked to CPAP only
If you can get into the clinical menu you can change any setting. There is no lock.
To change the therapy mode to auto:
Hold down the down arrow and right arrow buttons for three seconds.
CLINICAL/menu (left arrow)
SETTINGS/enter (left arrow)
MODE:XXXXX/change (left arrow)
Use the up and down arrows to select the correct mode.
apply (left arrow)
exit (right arrow) three times.
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Best of luck on setting your machine.
I agree with zonk. Is there a memory card in it? If so, take it out. See if you can set it then.

The S8 does not retain the data card. You do not leave it in the machine while using it, unlike an SD card. You insert it, the data is copied to it within 10 or 15 seconds, and then the display tells you to remove the card. If you don't remove it, the machine will never write to it again, until you remove it and reinsert it.
