  • Causa
    A high voltage reliability issue resulting in the loss of the x-ray generation and this can cause an intermittent stop of fluoro acquisition and exposure during an examination without warning and hence no image on the display.
  • Acción
    The firm, Philips, sent "URGENT-Device Correction" letters dated November 10, 2008, to their customers and informed them about the reliability issue in the Allura XPER and Integris X-ray systems with the High Voltage Velera (HV) Generator. This reliability issue can lead to a system error causing intermittent loss of fluro and/or exposure acquisition, potentially resulting in the loss of the X-ray image on the display. The customers are advised if they experience High Voltage Generator reliability issue and the HV Generator stops working generating an O3EA error, a cold restart is required and reboot the system when the X-Ray image disappears. The firm will implement multiple mandatory Field Change Orders (FCOs) to solve the Generator reliability by updating the software for each X-ray system. The customers could contact Philips Care Center at 800-722-9377, #5, #4, #1 for any questions regarding this recall or 425-487-7469.
