SOURCE: Omron hem-704C blood pressure monitor show down

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

SOURCE: Cuff won't inflate

It probably has a leak. Examine the hose and cuff for cracks by flexing it , especially at the fitting where the hose attaches to the monitor. Also check where the hose attaches to the cuff. Try replacing the cuff.
Hope it helps. Please let me know.

You have the same problem I do. The hose socket to the machine is broken.

Lost instructions to set it

Remove the batteries for five minutes to half an hour this should clear any previous settings then restart.generally the program is auto setup you just need to encircle the cuff and switch it on... Then let it inflate and find the systolic and diastolic parameters by itself.

How do I fix a homedics BPA-201 Digital Blood Pressure Monitor. Or who do I send it to be fixed. It keeps displaying E1. But I checked all cuffs connections and they are fine.

Are you moving your arm at all after you press the start button. I just have a wrist cuff, but if I move anything after I've pushed the start button I get an error code.

Sometimes err comes up on the screen, why?

Jean, I'll answer both your questions that you posted separately. The change in sound you hear is caused by the monitor noting a change in how it's reading you BP. The error message is probably directly related to the change in sound. Errors are caused by several things:

  • The Cuff has been placed incorrectly. Cuff should be placed on the wrist, at least 1/2" above the heal of the hand.
  • Talking or movement of your wrist or arm during measurement. Measure again. Keep wrist steady during measurement.
  • Shaking of the wrist with Cuff on. Same as above.
  • Air circuit abnormality. Turn unit OFF and then Back ON and measure again
  • Inflation pressure exceeding 300mmHg. Switch the unit OFF and measure again.
  • Error determining measurement data. Wait 1 minute and measure again.
If you continue to have problems with the unit, it has a 5 year limited warranty ... Contact HoMedics Customer Support 800-466-3342.

Hope this helps answer your 2 questions and helps to solve the problem for you.

Happy Easter!

Neither of the cuffs on the Homedics S18729 Ultra-Deluxe Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor work. They do not fit well around my arm and constantly slip while inflating. I don't know if it is a design flaw...

Robert, I'm not sure that the cuffs would be interchangeable. But, I suspect the problem you're having with the cuff is operator error. Speaking from experience, it's somewhat difficult at best, to apply and arm cuff to yourself. It does take some practice, but if you can get the cuff snugly in place, it should inflate properly. If you want to pursue with interchanging the cuff, contact HoMedics at 800-469-3342, to see if it's possible. Perhaps, you should get a BP Monitor that has a wrist cuff. They're a lot easier to apply and use.

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.

Homedics wrist blood pressure monitor. All I get for a reading is 'EE'

That means you are moving, or you are inflating the cuff to soon after This is what happens with mine.
