In today’s blog, we will get some more tips from the Biomedical/Clincial Engineers at Trisonics! Today's tips are in regards to the GE Healthcare LOGIQ 9. The majority of the phone calls I receive on the MedWrench line are in regards to troubleshooting errors with machines. We all know that there is nothing worse than getting to work, and finding out a vital piece of equipment is not functioning properly. According to the biomedical/clinical engineers at Trisonics,“when it comes to the GE Logiq 9, the two biggest contributors to this are Software and the Backend Processor Power Supply or BEP Power Supply.” The first question that should be asked is “if the power button changes from amber to green”. If it does not or changes for a second or two, chances are it is a problem with the BEP Power Supply.
Now that you have identified the potential problem, you will need to follow the directions provided below by Trisonics in order to troubleshoot!
The supply is located in the BEP itself located on the left side of the system if looking at it from the front. Remove the left side plastic cover as well as the BEP cover and the supply is located in the top left corner of the BEP. Before replacing the supply verify that there is approximately 220-240 volts coming into the supply. If your voltage is coming in correctly, chances are you need to change out the supply.
To change the supply, disconnect the power cable coming into the supply as well as the power cables that go to the drives, circuit boards, batteries and jumper cables. The supply is held in by 4 screws on the back of the BEP tower as well as screw at the top of the CEP and a bracket that supports the PCB's.
When installing the new supply, make sure you connect all cables back up the same way you removed the old ones and mount the supply properly to the BEP. Before turning on the system, make sure the switch on the power supply is turned to on and do NOT change the red circuit breaker switch to 120! Try to power on the system using the power button on the lower ops panel and watch the system boot up.
