SOURCE: We don't the manual for our model #BPA-440WGN and

We're having consistently high readings with ours, too. We've compared it with as many as two other units at various test sessions.

From the manual:
------------------------
All digital blood pressure monitors require recalibration in order to ensure continued accuracy.

This monitor does not require recalibration for 2 years under normal usage conditions (approx 3x/day), at which time your monitor will display "CA." The unit should also be recalibrated if the monitor sustains damage due to blunt force (such as dropping) or exposure to fluids or extreme hot or cold temperature changes.

To send monitor for recalibration, please ship to the address below with check or money order in the amount of $10 payable to HoMedics, Inc., for recalibration service, shipping and handling:

HoMedics Recalibration Service Center
Post Office Box 7050
Walled Lake, MI 48390

Allow up to 3 weeks for return of product. For additional information, contact HoMedics Consumer Relations at 1-800-466-3342.
---------------
So, do we spend $10 plus postage and wait 3 weeks or more...or do we use the $10 toward a new one immediately at a Walgreen's a half-mile away? It's a nice unit and works well otherwise, so it's a quandry. I hate to toss it. Good luck.

Reading is off form what doctor has


I would trust more in doctor's reading then in the device you have, but you could check with other members of your family who have normal pressure. If returns too low, might prove that doctor is correct.

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.

What does an E3 reading mean on a b.p. machine


On my Homedics BPA-110 the "E3" means there was an "error obtaining measurement data: measure again". When you measure, make sure the cuff hose is centered on your arm. I have noticed the placement of the hose cuff is quite critical. If the hose on the cuff is not centered, you will probably get some type of "Exx" error code. This has happened several times with my monitor. Hopes this helps.

My blood pressure machine keeps giving me an error 3 it is a cvs brand


Several of the CVS brand blood pressure monitors are made by MicroLife USA. For those models, the Error 3 indicates that you may have been moving your arm while the unit was obtaining the readings. You need to repeat the measurement while staying still.

The other possible cause of the error are that the cuff didn't inflate in a reasonable length of time. Check that the cuff is properly placed on your arm. Also make sure that the inflation hose is tightly connected to the cuff socket on the unit.

I hope this helps.

Morning! I have a bpa 300 nearly new lost receipt shows EE everytme iwas wondering if you have any solutions thanks K wilkinson


Generally the EE error code stands for the following:

EE is a measurement symbol for one or more of the following;

  • Cuff has been placed incorrectly. Wrap the cuff properly so that it's positioned properly on the wrist. 1" above the heel of the hand.
  • Talking or movement during measurement. Shaking of wrist with the cuff on. Measure again, keeping the wrist steady and at heart level during measurement.
  • The value shown on the display is excessively Low or High. Wait 5 minutes and measure again.
Hope this helps you. If you continue to have a problem with the monitor contact HoMedic's Customer Support 800-466-3342. As most of their BP Monitors have a 5 year warranty.

Readings are too high compared to doctor's readings


There are several reasons for 'too high' readings; the cuff is too small for your arm, the muscles of the arm are not relaxed (squeezes on the blood vessels along with the cuff), arm not elevated to about mid chest level, BP tkaen before 5 minute sit/rest.
You can take your cuff into the doctors office to have it checked by the nurse and compared to theirs, rest 5 minutes ther as well befor taking BP. Their cuff could be too big for you and so would give a false low reading.
If the calibration is off, you will have to return it to the manufacturer - check their web site or call the customer support line.
Congratulations on taking an active role in your health care!

My Omron 711 seems to register readings that are too high when compared to doctor's office or monitors in drug stores, etc. Is there a way to check accuracy of the monitor?


Take the cuff to your doctors office and have the nurse check with yours and the office BP cuff. If your cuff is too small, you will get a false high reading.

It keep giving me a ee reading every time i try to use it


Hi. One of the most common error symbol that appears on this display panel is a EE with a down arrow and two numerals. The reason for the EE Error Indicator is usually caused because the cuff has been wrapped too loose. The cuff was under-inflated during the measurement. This error will also display if the cuff is worn and needs to be replaced. The EE symbol with a down arrow indicates the cuff is over-inflated. In most instances the cuff has been wrapped too tight or you are using the incorrect cuff size. Turn the monitor off. Read the instructions to correctly apply the cuff. Wait five to ten minutes then take another measurement. This should correct the issue.

I have OMRON HEM-650, but it does not give accurate results. Can you give me suggestion on which one is accurate and easy to take with? the brand, the model...


None of the finger or wrist cuffs are accurate. The slightest movement of your finger or hand will give a false reading. There are a few nice cuffs for your are and they are all pretty good. Relax for a few minutes before you take your pressure and ake it in the same position each time. Hold still and don't take a deep breath while it's testing. It is normal to have 20-40 points difference from one reading to the next. If it looks too high, sit still for 2 or 3 minutes and try again.
