When I power on the machine, a Philips Respironics System One, I see a message about data activity. After several second I am asked to remove and reinsert the card.
This will repeat with no resolution to the problem. The machine works fine otherwise except it uses no water, and the heater indicator flashes. A friend of mine who is also using the same machine accessed the data and looked at some of the setup items. It seems the card problem appeared about the same time frame, but I can't see that any of the setup values have changed. I have looked at the data by using SleepyHead software but I have always locked the card before putting it in my computer.
Any suggestions, aside from having it serviced by my medical equipment store?
Unplug the cord from the outlet and leave it unplugged for a while and then plug it back in and see if that helps. That's all I can think off at the moment because I don't know a lot about PR machines.

Look to see if your friend locked the card when he had it out. If so unlock it. As to the humidifier flashing, first try separating the humidifier from the machine and reattaching it.
if that doesnt work, see what code the humidifier light is flashing and if there are any audible sounds to go along with it.
You can see if the humdifier is heating up simply by pulling out the tank turning on the machine and putting your hand on the heating plate.
If humidity is high in your home you wont use much water at all. If its dry youll use more. But it shouldnt be flashing.
Also does it flash when the card is out of the machine as well??
Oh and with the PRS1 you dont need to lock the card to read the data on your computer. The PRS1 doesnt care whats written on the card as long as it has room to write its own data.
