Q: What should I do to diagnose the problem if the device is not ready?


A: If the device is not ready, perform one of the following two actions:


  • If possible, use the USB cable, Wi-Fi, or cellular to connect to LIFELINKcentral AED Program Manager or LIFENET System. Follow the onscreen instructions to diagnose the problem.


  • If you are unable to connect the defibrillator to LIFELINKcentral AED Program Manager or LIFENET System, use the following steps to determine why the Readiness indicator is not flashing.


  1. Open the lid and wait until the voice prompts start.
  2. Immediately press and hold the LANGUAGE and CHILD MODE buttons simultaneously until you hear either DEVICE READY or DEVICE NOT READY.
  3. The defibrillator will then provide voice instructions that tell you which of the following actions you need to perform:
  • Replace electrode tray
  • Replace battery
  • Contact qualified service personnel

Note: If you pressed both buttons but did not hear the DEVICE READY or DEVICE NOT READY voice prompts, you may need to try again. When you open the lid, you must wait until the voice prompts start before pressing the two buttons. After the voice prompts start, you must press the two buttons within 10 seconds. If you miss these time limits, the AED proceeds as it would during a cardiac arrest. To try again, close and reopen the lid.
