I've searched and searched and cannot find this. Anyone able to tell me how you can find how many hours a machine has been used?

I was gonna be a smart a** and make you post back "well",Laugh-a-lot but you have helped me so much, here it is.

On my A10 Auto set, push the knob (button) to light it up while it's off, highlight "my options", push the button, scroll down to "about", push the button and scroll until you see "run hours". That should be total hours on machine and can not be reset if I am not mistaken.

Our machines seem to look to be the same basic setup for menu systems.

If I am correct, then I did my good deed for today..............If not, just ask me and I will make it up as I go along!!Sleep-well

Ginzo, you were mostly right if the 'run hours' is what I'm looking for. It was under the 'about' but it was in the clinical menu. So if RUN HOURS is what shows how many hours a machine has been used in total since it was brand new, then that's what I'm looking for.

But I would enjoy you making up a good yarn Laugh-a-lot

BRB,

Yup, I'm gonna take a credit on this one, it's in both places and on mine, it is the same run time hours, (1330) for me since July 17, 2015 So if you go the way I stated, you would see the same thing as in the clinical menu.

Oh, I can MAKE up some stories.............

Thanks Chuck! I guess I should have spent more time at the machine searching than I did online!

To be truthful, I don't know how I knew that, or figured it out. My greatest asset seems to be useless facts and worthless information!!!

Happy New Year.
