My Blood Pressure comes up with E1 - what does this mean?


An E1 error can mean a number of things depending on the brand of your monitor and the way that you are trying to take your blood pressure. The general reason for E1 errors is to announce for whatever reason that the machine could not get a blood pressure reading.

Some common causes:
You did not let all of the air out of the blood pressure cuff before trying to take your blood pressure. Make sure that there is no air in the cuff by squeezing it or rolling it, prior to use to let out excess air.

Your blood pressure cannot be taken at this time. Sometimes this occurs if you are very nervous, overly excited, or have a fast heart rate. You can try sitting down and relaxing prior to taking your blood pressure.

You are using the wrong size cuff. If you are taking blood pressure on a small child, someone with a tiny arm, or someone with a large arm, the blood pressure cuff might not get an accurate reading. Many blood pressure monitor manufacturer's offer blood pressure cuffs ranging in size from small to extra large, and you should use the cuff that is most appropriate for the size of your arm.

You didn't line up the blood pressure cuff correctly on your arm. You can't just slap the cuff on your arm and expect it to work, it has to be lined up properly. Many companies put an arrow on the cuff to give you an idea with positioning.

You need to try a different spot on your arm. Occasionally some people cannot give a blood pressure reading on their upper arm for a variety of reasons, and you should try getting a reading on your lower arm.

If you are still having trouble with your blood pressure cuff, take your monitor with you to your next doctors appointment so that your doctor can show you how to use the monitor correctly.

Why does anOmron M7 Blood Pressure Monitor Cuff not fully inflate?


I have the BP760 model so I'm not entirely sure what the functionality differences would be. However from time to time I have had issues with the cuff not inflating. It is usually one of two things: the cuff is not positioned snugly enough on the arm (I have a skinny arm and sometimes need to enlist the help of a family member). The other time it has happened was when the inflation tube itself with so kinked and twisted that air could not flow through. You should also check to make sure that the inflation tube in securely connected to the unit. So make sure that the air supply from the cuff to the unit is not obstructed, and that the arm cuff is positioned properly and that you are not trying to put the cuff on over clothing. If you've checked all of this and/or you receive the error message of "Er", you should contact customer service. Hope this helps.

Error 3 is showing on my monitor ... What does it mean ?


On other blood pressure monitors from Life Source, the error 3 means that the blood pressure cuff isn't inflating properly. The cuff could be incorrectly fastened or the air connector is backwards or not connected to the cuff or the monitor. Check this on your monitor.

I hope this helps.

The needle on the Sphygmomanometer gauge will not return to its zero reading. Otherwise it seems to function correctly.


This will happen sometimes, if the BP Cuff has been dropped and the gauge gets stuck. Have you tried tapping on the gauge with your finger, to get it to return to 0 ? Also. be sure the thumb screw air valve is fully open and the cuff is completely deflated. The gauge is easily replaceable, if necessary. Just contact the manufacturer of your BP Cuff or if you prefer Sphygmomanometer.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

More frequently my Omron HEM-780 seems flaky. It would apply pressure and count up to 112-120 then start deflating, then inflating, etc. Then it would count down by units and end up displaying E. It would...


Part of the problem may the the placement of the cuff. Generally, if it's not placed correctly. the cuff will re-inflate trying to find the correct stopping point for inflation. Any movement of your arm could cause this. Also, if you haven't replaced the batteries lately, you should do that. Also check to make sure there are no air leaks in the rubber tubing or the cuff. Check your Owners Manual for the exact placement of the cuff.

What brand of BP Monitor?

Is this a personal BP monitor?
Or is it a hospital BP monitor?

Well.. you have to check the cuff to see if it's OK. Most of the errors are because of the cuff which has a balloon inside the cuff.

It depends on your model.

On some models you can take off the cuff line. Check if there is air coming out from the BP machine. If there ir air, it must be probably the cuff.

If both the cuff and machine is OK, then the problem must be the machine calibration.

Is it electronic or manual BP?

Hope it helped.

God Bless You!

Accuracy problem


Hello martintpjr, the difference could be your physical postion,(sitting,laying) location of cuff(on the fore arm), not as relaxed, cuff/tubing has a air leak,or unit is out of calibration. Eliminate the first four than contact the local college or BioMed shop in the local hospital and KINDLY ask if your unit operation/calibration could be checked. Merry Christmas.
