Examples of a choke start bed are: All Ergoline units. Examples of a magnetic type of bed are: Sundash models.

I have a lamp out in my bed, what do I need to do?
First off, check to make sure that the lamp is not cracked or broken. If everything looks intact, try removing the lamp and swapping it with one beside it that you know works. If the lamp still doesn’t light, then you need to move on to the next step. If the unit is equipped with a starter for each lamp, try swapping this out with another(working) lamp. If the lamp still does not light, then you will need to replace your ballast. Please remember that some models of tanning beds utilize a two-lamps-per-ballast wiring. So when you swap the lamp, try not to use the one immediately next to the defective lamp.

Why is my main timer (CCS) beeping?
The most common reason for a main timer to begin beeping is due to one of your beds being disconnected from the timer system. This can be due to an electrical problem or a damaged wire. It some cases, it may be necessary to replace a communication chip inside of the tanning bed or room timer. Due to the complex nature of a salon wiring system, please call one of our service specialist to assist you in the troubleshooting process.

What do I do if my bed is not communicating with my timer system?
A damaged wire is often the culprit of this problem. Check all of your timer wiring inside the room to verify that there is no damage to the line or that the wire is not kinked or pinched in any way. If the timer wire looks good, then it is possible that you will need to replace a communication chip.
