Seca CT6i ecg machine keeps flashing INOP light and this indicates lead cable error. I have tried the Lead cable on another machine and it worked properly. Do I need to open the machine? Please help!

I have leads on patient and machine says leads off. everything is hooked up, why won't it give me a reading?

Any one of the lead is broken. you have to replace the ecg lead.
All the ecg machines have self diagnosing before its acquire the signals from the patient to print signal. while performing this function the machine detects all the signals from all the leads are prompt or not , if any one of the lead is missing it will not go further and will indicate check cable.

Welsh allen at-2 lead light is on however ekg machine will not give tracing

There is some problem with the patient cable. Any one of the lead is broken inside. AT2 senses the presence of all the lead first and then only it will acquire the ECG and store it in its memory,after that it will print the ECG.
If any one of the lead have some problem. it will not go to the next procedure. and will indicate the lead off light.

1. check are you connected the lead correctly.
2. clean the electrode properly.
then try one more time. if problem remains. you have to replace the patient cable.

Lower half or EKG would not print properly

You should purchase a printer kit. This is a common problem I have encoutntered on this machine and this machine is identical to the Seca CT6I. I have ordered the printer kit from Seca in the UK, the part number is 9740490024 at a cost of £70. It is a straightforward repair.
