Trouble after power outages
#1
Our power flickered on an off several times.  
Now my CPAP ResMed Elite only shows "S9 Series" on the LCD screen and turns off after a few seconds and then repeats the same message time after time.
I have unplugged the unit and still can not get unit to turn on with the power button or holding down the dial.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi ScoobieDrew! - Welcome
I would suggest that you take it to your DME and try another power supply. Power supplies have a good size capacitor that should negate power spikes on the Resmed.

That would be my suggestion as well. If it does not fix it, then you are there at the DME to negotiate them replacing it. Don't tell them about the power outage, just that it started doing this.

I use a backup power supply and filter for a computer to help protect my unit.
