Switch repair on Resmed S8 Escape II Images
#1
I repaired the Switch on a RESMED S8 Escape II

I have images.
I can not post them yet as I do not know how.

I email them to the Apenaboard to see what they will do with them.

The images were done with a cell phone so not always high quality but will do the job.

I will email them to anyone to help you in a time of need.

Easy Job.
Need can of electric Contact cleaner and 15min and willing to take a small chance. * Even if plastic clip breaks I think machine will still be usable. See images for little clip.

* I have removed top 2 times and it did not break little clip.


Images are self explaining.

Hope i can help someone save money.

Privet mail me and I will send you images.
Maybe someone can make high quality images.

I am thankful to the information provided on this site and want to return the favor if possible a help to all.

Best way to post images is to open an anonymous account on a site like photobucket; push the images up there. Then put the image(s) URL between html [img] tags in a post.

It saves space on the apneaboard.com server.
You might not be able to put a URL in a post until you have made ? posts... like 6 or so.

REMOVE filter and unplug suggested:

1. Use butter knife or other thin object to lift plastic. Image 2
2. Carefull there are small clips . I have removed 2 times and did not break them. See image of 6 for clips
3. Lift off plastic button
4. Use cleaner on Q tip swap. Clean little metal connectors Image 5
5. Clean rubber buttons Image 8
6. Replace handel Image 7
7. Snap back .

I suggest clean and test with rubber button before full replacement of cover.

Plan <15mins Easy Need Cleaner and Q tips.

Mine works. Now used as back up.
Electric Contact or other Eltronic cleaner should be safe.
( Drys quick and smells bad)

Those are resistive contact switches -- similar to those found in most TV remotes.
I would think 99.953% Isopropyl Alcohol would work too.

What an incredibly easy fix! Took me five minutes. I wish I had known this before buying my last machine. This has now happened to two machines. I would have much rather spent $0 than buying a new machine, but so happy it worked this time!
