issue in the colonoscope fujifilm model EC-530WL3

I have an issue in the colonoscope fujifilm model EC-530WL3. If I want To supply air, I stop the hole in the center of the Air/water button with a finger, but the air does not exit from the air nozzle at the distal end. But, when I removed the air/water valve and closed the hole by finger, the air exit from the air nozzle at the distal end. But if I put the air/water valve and stop the hole of the center of the air/water button with a finger, the air does not exit from the nozzle. So, please help me. What can i do?

I recommend inspecting the valve carefully and also ensuring there is a seal around it.

The silver air/water nozzle t the distal end sounds like it is clogged or damaged.  You should not attempt try to remove that yourself as it needs to be sealed properly to prevent the nozzle from coming out of the scope and into the patient. Also, if you pick at it you can puncture the air/water channel inside causing more extensive damage.  Any reputable repair company should be able to replace that for you. Providing that is all that is wrong it should be a minor repair.

It sounds like there is a compromise somewhere.  I agree with Lee Ann, the unit should be sent in.  The air is going somewhere, more than likely someplace where it's not supposed to be.  Additionally, the disinfection process between patients may not occurr as it should.  Dirty scopes are a bad thing.
