Resmed Vpap auto won't shut off.
#1
I have a Resmed Vpap Auto that I've been using since 2005. I think I must have punched a wrong button and now it won't shut off. Sometimes if I hold the Off button for a long time it might go off but not always. I've read the user manual and it is no help. Can anyone help me?

The most obvious thing is to pull the plug and see if when you plug it back in it is still in the "on" mode, but you probably tried that already.

Leave it off a full 10 seconds or more if you (re)try this.

If it comes back to "On" maybe you can get by this way for a while, or maybe this will reset the machine to the normal behavior.
Sweet Dreams,

HI, good day.

i think the rubber button is already worn out or the inside is full of dust. thus making it always in contact to the board. Did you send it for service?
