After working a few times today, it stopped working. I assumed it just needed new batteries. when i opened it i saw that one battery had leaked slightly. i cleaned what i could...the contact points looked okay, but now no sign of life, even with new batteries. I tried a few times, each time with another set of new batteries. any hope? We need to be able to service it ourselves since we are in a remote area of Venezuela. My husband needs to be monitored so this is very important to us. We have had it about 5 years. thank you.
The troubleshooting guide does recomend making sure you have the batteries postitioned correctly. Also if the battery did leak into the unit it might have ruined it, I would really suggest getting a new unit to ensure acuracy it is sensative equipment and it sounds like the unit may have been comprimised.

If you visit www.polarusa.com they have guidelines and life expectancies, it is also in your owners manual.
The HR reading can be caused by several issues some environmental some within the watch or strap, please visit my tips and tricks page for a detailed listing as well as if you need a new owners manual.
On the straps for an F11 those have a user replaceable battery, your battery may be the thing that is wearing out, not the whole strap. Try a new battery in the strap (wearlink connector) before buying an entire new strap.
The gels work by providing greater conductivity, yes they work, but you may or may not need it. depends on why you are having a signal issue.
hello dhread.... Remove the battery and use the eraser on the end of a common pencil to clean the battery contacts. Then use a small flat blade screwdriver to gently raise the contacts so there is tighter contact with the new battery. IF these steps do not solve the problem, the device will have to be sent in to the company for a repair or a replacement. Joe

I sounds like the wire that connects on of the sensors is severed. If your still under warranty, I would contact respironics for a replacement or repair. The wires are normally soldered to the sensors so if your have the equipment and ability, you can try to install new wires. Look for a red light if you don't see it where the finger goes, your suspicions are probably confirmed. Most the time we find it easier to replace the oximeter. Here is a site that allegedly has all the finger oximeters available
Hello hadmcontrol1, I will need information on the error reguarding size, polarity, type of battery you connected including make, model and correct type battery for the unit. With this info I can advise or guide on your choice.
Price is always a consideration when it comes to HRM's. You can easily go to Target and purchase a $40 HRM, but consider the quality. Buying a HRM is an investment and you get what you pay for. You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to get a high quality HRM, but you do want to make sure that it will last a long time. When buying a HRM go for trusted brands such as Polar, LifeSource, or Mio. Some of the cheaper models won't fit as snugly and may be heavier than higher quality brands.
You do not have the right model number. For some reason, Polar puts the CE0537 in big numbers on the back of the case. The real model number on my unit was in very light engraving right above the words "Polar Electro" on the back of the case. Looks like they have an engraving problem where both the model and serial number are very hard to read. If it helps, my model was S120 and I found the manual quickly on the polar site. The polar site also has the location of model numbers in their FAQ area.
