As anyone who owns a cellphone can tell you: batteries don't last forever! Even rechargeable batteries, like the ones in an OEC 9800 or 9900 C-arm, have a shelf life that will one day run out and leave a device powerless.
Fortunately, these batteries generally last quite a while. On top of this, the system will warn you that it's not charging correctly with a "charger fail" error message on the C-arm's readout. However, if your site's number has come up and your batteries have bitten the dust altogether, we've got a video that just might be some news you can use.
Watch the video below to learn how to change the batteries on an OEC 9800 or 9900 C-arm. Please note: the procedures demonstrated in this video should be performed by engineering or biomedical personnel.
If your site's C-arm needs new batteries, contact us. We have them in stock and ready to ship the same day they are ordered. If your team doesn't have an in-house biomed or clinical engineer, our service team is ready to dispatch qualified personnel to install your batteries or see to any other service needs you have. Contact us for support!
