Error Codes
When the monitor detects an error condition (depending on the type of error) an error message appears on the screen or an error code is written to the Error Log. Error codes can be either:
If an error occurs during monitoring, an audible alarm also sounds. Press the Audio Alarm Control button to end the audible alarm.
Warning Codes
A warning code is typically an indication that an event in the monitor bears attention or intervention and appears in the monitor’s messages panel.
Warning codes can be physiological or technical alarms. A physiological alarm indicates that the monitor has sensed an unsafe condition such as Desat or a measurement that has exceeded the alarm settings. A technical alarm indicates that the monitor has sensed a malfunction in the operation of the monitor like an uncalibrated CO2 module or NBP air leak.
Service Codes
A service code is an indication that the monitor has detected an error in operation and service might be required. A service code error is a hexadecimal number that indicates the nature of the error.
Error codes 
257
