Avant® 9600 Troubleshooting

  • Device will not activate.
    1. Check that the battery pack is properly connected to device.
    2. Plug in the device AC power supply to charge the battery pack. New battery packs must complete one charge/discharge/recharge cycle before the Battery LED displays the actual capacity.
  • Unable to obtain a green pulse display on the bar graph.
    1. Reposition the sensor or apply the sensor to a different finger, and keep the sensor motionless. b) Warm the sensor application site.
    2. c) Allow the hand to rest comfortably without squeezing or pressing the sensor on a hard surface. d) Shield the sensor from any light source.
    3. e) Reduce or eliminate any possible interference from one of the following sources:
      • arterial catheter
      • electrosurgical procedure
      • infusion line
  • A dash (-) appears in the %SpO2 display.
    1. Reposition the sensor or apply the sensor to a different finger, and keep the sensor motionless. b) Warm the sensor application site.
  • An error code appears in the display area.
    1. Turn the unit off and back on again to remove error code.
    2. If the error persists, disconnect battery & AC, and then reconnect the power and turn unit on.
    3. The device encountered an error. See “Error Codes Table” in your manual.
  • The unit is in Alarm mode, but no audible alarms can be heard.
    1. Press the Alarm Silence button to activate alarm volume, or wait for two minutes; and alarm tones will automatically activate.
    2. Adjust the alarm volume, or return option switch 1 to the DOWN position if audible alarms are required.

Typically error codes issues will have to come back to us for repair.

The only exceptions are error 06, 09 &10 these can be cleared by doing a factory clear function.

 

Press and hold the (+) and (-) buttons then momentarily press the On/Standby button and turn the unit on.  Keep the (+) and (-) buttons held until the 7 segment displays are lit, then release the (+) and (-) buttons, then immediately press and hold the Alarm Silence button, prior to the ‘REV’ being displayed. Verify ‘dnE CLR’ is output on the seven segment displays.  Release the Alarm Silence button.

If any of these solutions do not correct the problem with your Avant 9600, please contact Nonin Technical Service at (800) 356-8874 or (763) 553-9968.

 

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in the 9600 package assembly?

  • One (1) Avant 9600 Table Top Monitor
  • One (1) 8000AA 3-meter finger clip sensor
  • 7.2 V battery pack
  • Operator’s Manual
  • AC adapter

What is the longest overall combination of sensor and extension cable that can be used with the 9600?

The recommended overall maximum length of the sensor and extension
cable is 40 feet (12 meters).

How many hours of pulse oximetry data can be stored in memory for download?

Up to 115 hours of pulse rate and SpO2 data may be stored. nVISION®
software may be used to retrieve and analyze the data.

What happens to the data in memory after 115 hours have been stored?

The 9600 will continue recording in a “looping” fashion, replacing the
oldest data.

How is the memory cleared?

Patient memory can be cleared during memory play back.
With unit off press and hold the Time/Date while pressing the ON/STANDY
button. Ply bAc will appear in Spo2 and Pulse location. A CLR no message
will display once play back is complete. Use the Plus or Minus button to
change to CLR YES. Press the ON/STANDBY button then dEL NO will
display. Press the Plus or Minus button to change to dEL Yes. Press the
ON/STANDBY button again and dnE Clr will confirm memory is clear.

What kind of batteries can I use in the 9600?

NONIN’s rechargeable NiMH battery pack is required for battery
operation of the 9600.

How many hours of battery life can I expect?

Twelve hours minimum when fully charged.

How long does it take to recharge the battery pack?

Approximately four hours if the battery pack is completely discharged
and the system is not in use. The battery pack continuously charges while
the device is plugged into AC power. Charging will be longer if the system
is in use.

What is the Patient Security Mode and how does it work?

Alarm limits cannot be changed when the Model 9600 is in Patient
Security mode. Patient Security mode prevents accidental changes to
critical parameters. The Model 9600 allows users to lock and unlock alarm
limits, volume settings, and time settings through the use of Patient
Security mode. Patient Security mode remains active even when the device
is turned off and then turned back on. Patient Security mode is retained
even when both external and battery power are lost. When the Patient
Security mode is enabled, operators cannot change SpO2, or Pulse Rate
limits or Alarm Volume – though it is still possible to view those settings. In
Patient Security mode, operators cannot view or set the time and date. To
enter Patient Security mode, with unit on press and hold the Alarm Limits
and Time/Date button for 5 seconds.
“111 111” is displayed when Patient Security mode is enabled.
“000 000” is displayed when Patient Security mode is disabled.
To change Patient Security mode from its current setting, press the Volume
button while the mode is displayed.
