Hello Colleagues,

I urgently need an English version of service manual for WEM SS-501E electrosurgical unit.

My people in the theater are stranded at the moment and I have to sort things out as soon as possible.

I need urgent help please.

Please send to: vgmakwinja@gmail.com

Thanks in advance.

Victor.

Hello Dustcap,

I already downloaded it only to realize it was in a language that I cannot read.

Hence my request to get someone out there to help who may have an English version of the same.

If there is someone out there with the English version I still ask for their help.

Thanks.

Vic.

What's the problem with the machine, Victor?

Could it be "finger trouble"?

By the way, the circuit diagrams in that .pdf are annotated in English.

Sorry Geoff, I have been off the loop for sometime.

What was happening was that when you press the foot control on the coag, it was indicating cut on the machine display. And if you press on the cut on the foot control it was indicating the coag on the display.

I checked the signal cable only to note that someone soldered it in the past and they misaligned the positions such that what was supposed to be coag. was put on the cut and the signal would indicate the same on the display.

Just did the swapping everything back to normal as expected.

Thanks.

Well, I (like many others, I should imagine) have come across a fair number of "howlers" in my time ... but don't recall any "visited by others" situations quite as bad as that one.

Hopefully, any catastrophic outcomes were avoided by alert theatre staff.

Anyway ... the lesson to be learned there (and it's a basic one) must be:- "always check your work". As well as making sure that the equipment works correctly (not to mention safely) before returning it to the user.
