Unfortunately Sharper Image has discontinued support on the product line.  There was a recall going on with the product but since the company is chapter 11 right now, I don't think it is being honored right now.  
What happened was Consumer Reports ran a test on ionizers, Sharper Image received a bad score and filed a lawsuit.  They lost the suit and had to pay all legal bills causing Sharper Image to reorganize.
 
The EPA has reported that using ionizers in a house or business may be harmful to your health.  You can read an article about it on their website.
 
The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to release a final report on all ionizers by the end of the year.  Their decision may discontinue all sales of any ionizers in the United States.  This industry should have been regulated years ago just by the EPA data alone and for some reason it has been ignored.

Sharper Imaage Ionizers


Ionized air purification systems have been proven to be ineffective for cleaning the air. These reports have been published by Consumer Reports as well as the EPA. Sharper Image filed a lawsuit against Consumer Reports and lost. They were ordered to pay Consumer Reports legal bills as well.

Sharper Image issued a recall on all Ionic Breeze Ionizers and filed for Chapter 11 at the same time.

Ionizers have been proven to create an ozone that is harmful to anyone with breathing problems.

Here is a link to the EPA report

Here is an article from CNN.com about The Sharp Image

Support for Ionic Breeze isn't possible since Shaper Image has recalled the product.

Your best bet to keep the air clean in your house is to use a hepa filtration system.

It emits a metallic burning odor.


The trouble began in 2003 when Consumer Reports magazine published a report claiming the expensive air cleaners don't clean air. The magazine later claimed its tests showed that Sharper Image's Ionic Breeze Quadra Silent Air Purifier and four other units also release potentially unhealthy levels of ozone.

There is a red blinking light and it is not cleaning.


My Ionic Breeze would work for a short time after cleaning and the blue light would start flashing and the unit would stop working. I checked the wall cube power adapter with a volt meter. It was putting out only 10 volts instead of the needed 12 volts. It seems The Ionic Breeze needs a full 12-13 volts to work. So I went to Radio Shack and bought a universal 12 volt 800ma power adapter. I checked the voltage in the new adapter, it was 13 volts. This fixed the flashing blue light problem. However the Ionic Breeze produces harmful Ozone gas, so I don't use it anymore.

Sharper image quadra-professional series stopped working


Sharper Image has discontinued the product after Consumer Reports ran a test on ionizers.  Sharper Image couldn't prove they cleaned the air and had to pay all legal fees forcing the company into Chapter 11.  They recalled the items as well but couldn't honor the checks.
EPA data has proven that in some environments they can be harmful to use.
Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to issue a report by the end of the year.  It's possible that sales of all ionizers will be gone by next year.

Sharper Image has recalled the product line. They lost a lawsuit with Consumer Reports after they couldn't prove that they did clean the air. They were ordered to pay all legal fees forcing the company into chapter 11.

Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to issue a report on all ionizers by the end of the year. It's expected their decision will stop sales of all ionizers in the U.S. EPA data has already proven their use not only to be ineffective but harmful to use as well.

Ionic Breeze Silent Air Purifier GP


Ionic Breeze products are no longer being supported because Sharper Image has gone into bankruptcy because the units were proven to be ineffective for cleaning the air by Consumer Reports magazine and by EPA studies. In face they have proven that ionizers can be harmful to use if you have breathing problems.

The best solution is to dump sharper image. I found a few site that had good solid reviews for a better air purifier decision - http://www.airpurifierhelp.com and http://www.air-purifiers-america.com
