Q: I am getting an intermittent error 200.8D48.8PYN.23 occurring a couple weeks apart. Can anyone provide guidance to what is causing this error?
A: A 200 EC could be many things. I would suggest sending in error logs to get read to see what is causing the error. Could just be software and perhaps a reload is worth a try. Call 800-958-9986 for link to upload logs.
A: 200.8D48.8PYN.23 is a software error. This error sometimes happens when entering in 3D color zoomed or ending an exam while in 3D also when using a sector probe. Re-installing software will fix the issue.
A: Reloading the software should fix this problem. Please let me know your software version.
Reply: Thanks for the input. I reinstalled software through the software maintenance on the system and restored system settings. Does anyone have an error list they could provide?
Agfa CR 30-X doesn’t recognize
Q: The device doesn’t recognize cassette format (mostly large cassettes). I had this problem three years ago, changed the cassette fixation steel band, and everything was fine. Now. I have the same problem. I changed the steel band again (it had crack at its end), but this time the problem remains. Calibrations for Cassette Fixer Motor passes, but doesn’t recognize large cassettes again. Anyone have any idea what to do next?
A: Try replacing the cassette edge sensor and make sure that the transport rollers are in good condition.
A: Check that the fix mechanism is not cracked, if so you would have to replace the fixation unit completely or make this piece in a lathe.
CareFusion – Alaris 8100
Q: I have pumps that have high bottle voltage with the calibration set in even after replacing the new sensors. Sometimes it is so high that it will fall outside the acceptable range (1.835 – 2.830V) and failed the press calibration. The pump is also causing a lot of 240.4150.5 errors in this case. Does anyone have idea what the problem might be to cause this, knowing the sensor is good?
A: I have had similar situations, and the fix is to replace the logic board on the 8100 and then you will need to flash the LVP to get it to talk with the PCU (8015). Once done, you will find that the pressure sensor voltages will drop to normal levels
A: I don’t test that way. I have 700 pump units model 8100 and 300 model 8015 controls. I don’t condemn the pressure sensors unless they cause errors in run mode. It looks like you’re checking voltage with an analog sensor test in maint s/w. If that’s under 3 vdc with loaded set, I will let it run a couple minutes in the analog sensor mode, as that bypasses all sensors and will sometimes help “loosen” things up a bit. I will then put it in “run” mode and use forceps to pinch off bottle then Pt. sides to make sure it works correctly. Then, I put it through the “PM” s/w and it usually works! I have not replaced many logic boards (maybe a dozen) in all my units in over 5 years. These units get used pretty hard, too! I’ve replaced at least 250 bezels on 8100s over the last few years, and a lot of pressure sensors as well. I don’t know if this helps, but I’ve had pretty good success. Good Luck!
