Humidifier LED on my PR 560
Does anyone know how to turn off the Blue LED ( wavy one) that stays lit after all the other lights go off?
I have looked through all the menus (clinical too) and can't find it.
I have to put a penny over it to get a dark room.

Thanks

The Humidifier LED light is switchable in the clinical menu. Electric tape is easy too.

Why they put blue LEDs on sleep machines is a mystery. Worst possible color as it shuts down natural melatonin production.

Black tape should work - lots of people put it on the warning lights in their car!

According to the clinician manual:

Quote:• Humidifier LED Backlight (Ramp Backlight) - You can enable or disable the LED backlight for the humidifier number settings and Ramp button on the device.

Note: If the humidifier is not attached, this feature will display as “Ramp Backlight” and control the LED backlight for the Ramp button only.

Note: If the Humidifier LED Backlight is enabled or disabled, the humidifier icon will always remains on (if humidifier is attached and heat is being applied), but will dim after 30 seconds of inactivity.

Sounds like you may have to break out the black tape to block it completely.
