If your HEM 704C fell hard, it is probably the pressure transducer that is faulty, broken. To my experience it is cheaper to buy a new one then to have it repaired by a technician

You haven't provided the exact brand and model of the monitor so the only thing that i can do is an educated guess: the power source of the device (the batteries if it's a portable unit) have aged and are incapable of providing  the energy needed. Because of that the pump is incapable of providing the required pressure and all the readings are messed up. Replace the batteries and make sure their contacts aren't corroded.

Usually in blood pressure apparatus these type of problems are very common. So do not worry.
Actually when you inflate the cuff the pressure goes into the pipe then unscrewing(mercury bp apparatus) or diflating (digital or manual apparatus) the cuff can release the air. There may be two possibilities that why the your equip is not difflating.
1. either there is a blockage in diflating Knob
2 Or in the pipe
The easiest way is to clean the piping by yourself or take it to the nearest medical appliance store, he will clean it for you.

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.

I just put new batteries in my Omron HEM-780. Doesn't work. When it finishes deflating it always says E7. What's going on?


Hi library336

The Omron HEM-780 generally has 5 Error Messages:


1]
ERROR MESSAGE: A single (E) Error message indicates movement during the measurement process, resulting in an inconclusive reading or the absence of a Blood Pressure or Pulse reading caused by a weak Arterial Pulse.

SOLUTION: Remove the cuff. Wait 10-15 minutes. Repeat measurement using approximately 40mmHg more pressure than in the previous measurement.

2]
ERROR MESSAGE: A Double (EE) Error message indicates an under-inflated cuff. Remove the cuff. Wait 2-3 minutes.

SOLUTION: Repeat measurement using approximately 40mmHg more pressure than in the previous, under-inflated measurement.

3]
ERROR MESSAGE: An E directly below another E Error message indicates an over-inflated cuff (in excess of 300 mmHg). Remove the cuff.

SOLUTION: Wait 2-3 minutes. Repeat measurement using approximately less pressure than in the previous, over-inflated measurement.


4]
ERROR: A Blank Screen indicates low or depleted batteries.

SOLUTION: Remove and replace all 4 AA Batteries. Do not mix used and new batteries.

5]
ERROR MESSAGE: An (Er) Error Message indicates an abnormal memory function caused by a faulty internal component.

SOLUTION: Call Omron Customer Service, Toll Free, on (in the USA) 1-800-634-4850 (or on the equivalent Toll Free or Freefone Number in your country).

I hope this helps.

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 does it mean when you get a reading then 3 consecutive readings say EE


What is the pattern of the EE? If the two E's are on the same line, then you didn't inflate the cuff to a sufficient pressure. (Wait 2-3 minutes before trying again and then inflate the cuff to 40 mmHg higher than the previous attempt.)

If the Es are arranged vertically, then you overinflated the cuff. Any [ressure above 300 mmHg is beyond the range that this bp monitor can handle. If you reached this point by getting several underinflation alerts, ask your medical professional to test your bp and recommend the starting inflation level that you need.

Make sure that you have the cuff on properly. You may need to consider a different bp pressure cuff size to get an accurate reading.

I hope this.

My bulb deflates after one squeeze.


you may want to check to see if the holes is connected tightly to the cuff on both ends and you need to check the bulb if it has a knob on it because some bulbs have numbers on them which can be set to release air and you want to make sure that it has a proper setting on and if that is not it then you may need a new bulb, i did. i hope this works for you and good luck!
