Respironics Series 60 Time setting software

Respironics Series 60 Time setting software
G’day all
I recently got out the Respironics Series 60 Auto that I bought in 2015 then put aside early 2018 when I got a new machine.  I find that it seems to have lost the date and time so all downloads have impossible dates and times.

There is no menu to set the time but I recall seeing somewhere that there is software around and a special cable that can be used to reset the clock. (Possibly after replacing a memory battery if there is one...)

Is there anyone who can help me locate that?  

Thanks

I don't know what kind of cable you'd need. The easiest is probably to track down the Bluetooth module for the 60 series and then use DreamMapper to reset the clock.

I no longer have a 60 series but as I recall the clock itself has no reset options. What it does have is the ability to set time zones. I did this via Sleepyhead (now OSCAR) but I also believe you can set the time zone directly on the machine itself.

Thanks holden4tn - the issue is that the machine has lost the date and time and is out by some years.

As a technician I suspect the clock support battery (assuming there is one) has died and may be able to be replaced. There is no point in looking into that if there is no way to set the clock.

I recall seeing some time ago that there was software and a cable that could allow that but I can’t find any reference to that now.

The 560 was a fine machine and I prefer it to my DreamStation so I may find out what Philips will charge to fix it.

Search for "Philips Respironics Bluetooth Module for SleepMapper Self-management" and you should find the bluetooth module for the 60 series (part # 100200B)

It looks like #26 on the supplier list has it for USD 60; I don't know if they ship internationally.

But if the battery is dead and you're not going to try to replace it yourself, it might make most sense to send it in for repair somewhere, at which point they presumably have the equipment needed to reset the clock. I don't know if Philips would do the repair, or if you need to find someone local. The supplier list shows a few US-based repair companies, so I don't know how it's done elsewhere.

Thanks sawinglogz.  That module is available in AU for A$85 but from what I see of DreamMapper it doesn’t seem to provide the low level management for setting the clock.  I might get the BT module anyway and play with it. 

To have the machine repaired by Philips AU will cost about A$580 minimum to quote.  That seems to be about what new-old-stock and recycled 560 machines sell for.  

Thanks again.

I don't think DreamMapper gives you any option to set the clock, I think it just does it for you automatically whenever you connect to it.
