  • Causa
    Mrx model m3535a and model m3536a may stop the automated ready-for-use (rfu) test in an abnormal state when the device is turned off. if this occurs, the rfu indicator window displays a pattern that is not documented in the instructions for use (ifu) or service manual. if this pattern appears and the device is turned on, it will revert the rfu back to an hourglass, indication that it is fully functional in all monitoring and therapy modes. there is no clinical risk if the device that has displayed this rfu pattern is turned on and put into service. a device experiencing this issue will continue to run automated rfu test hourly and report a 0x00c000a4 code in the status log summary each time.

    All MRx users should be informed that if the pattern appears, they can continue to use the device. Once the MRx is turned on, the pattern will disappear and the device will function normally in all monitoring and therapy modes. Philips will provide a software upgrade – for M3535A (software version F.03.07 or higher) and M3536A (software version T.00.06 or higher) – to correct this issue. A software upgrade will be provided free of charge for all affected products. A Philips Healthcare representative will contact customers with affected devices to arrange for installation of the upgrades.
