  Posted by Guest - Omron Blood Pressure Cuff Gives E1 Error :
I bought an Omron blood pressure cuff at Walgreens (it also says intellisense on it) and its complete garbage, I get E1 errors everytime I use it.  Now when I look up that error messsage it says the cuff isnt air tight so air is coming out somewhere.  This was also one of the more expensive cuffs and this garbage stopped working after only 6 months.

I just checked online and see many complaints with the E1 error with this same blood pressure cuff, I sure wish I had checked to see if people were getting these error messages before I bought this, now I need to buy a different brand. (But then again most online reviews are garbage or fake posts so normally I dont trust those, but everyone is saying E1 error just like my BP cuff is now doing repeatedly)

Guest Says:
I see some saying online also to plug in the blood pressure cuff but mine is ALWAYS plugge din.

Guest Says:
what I do on mine, I got that same e1 error message on my bloodpressure cuff and I started experimenting to get it to work.  If I pinch the valve where it connects to the sleeve just as its filling up with air, then I let go as it starts to read, then it works.  It seems to be a cheap connection there, probably made in china.

Guest Says:
I ended up throwing out the omron BP cuff that I had, it was always getting errors and I didnt even have it for a year.  I bought the panasonic blood pressure cuff and never looked back, its a 100 times better and works really fast.  I like the fact it has the cuff that wraps around the arm instead of that D ring thing the omron BP cuff had.

I bought my blood pressure monitor 10 month ago. It says error 1 and i can hear air get out from cuff.
This is expensive than other Brand.

Omron made in China no good.please don't but omron brand.

Guest Says:
Autumn, look at the panasonic blood pressure monitor on amazon, thats where I got mine and haven't had an issue yet

Guest Says:
The Omron blood pressure monitors are absolute garbage. I get an E1 message every time I use it.

Bob Says:
I also get at least one E1 error every time I use it.

Tom Says:
I get the E1 message when the cuff is not on tight. Seems the valve senses there is no resistance.

Guest Says:
One thing I realized is that checking my blood pressure all the time makes me panic more.  lol Plus if you check it after eating or having a beer it usually is high, so you have to be carefull about when you actually check it to get a good reading.

Ed Says:

   E I appears if I push the start button before putting
the cuff on my arm. Omron makes a good monitor.

Guest Says:
E1 error happens when the cuff is too loose. Tighten the cuff just a bit, and it should work.

Mountain Says:
I'm getting E1 on my blood pressure monitor and nothing is happening, it's only 6 months old

Vern Says:
Get E1 and gives only pulse. Less than 1 year old junk.

Guest Says:
Guess what after getting rid of my ormon BP monitor (threw it in garbage after 7 months or so), I have never had one issue with the new one I bought (different brand). I wish I had just bought the other to begin with.

Guest Says:
E1 simply means the cuff is not tight enough on your arm. Release the cuff, retighten it down and it'll work fine.

Guest Says:
I get the E1 errors about 5 out of every 6 tries, so by the time the monitor works, I'm so frustrated and irritated that I'm pretty sure my BP is significantly elevated.  Not what you want in a monitor...

Guest Says:
lol !  I know the feeling that the previous poster just posted ....

Guest Says:
I got my omron at wallgreens it is garbage they will not stand behid it

Guest Says:
I feel like my blood pressure is higher because I'm always nervous checking it.  Don't check your blood pressure after eating or drinking either as that makes it go higher temporarily, get an average over entire day, once early morning, once mid day, and once at night, do this over multiple days for your average and dont base blood pressure on just 1 check

Elizabeth Says:
Omrol is a total piece of junk. I keep cuff tight, pinched the air hose where it joins the cuff, plugged and unplugged the darned thing - all the suggestions above - and all I get is E1. This thing worked for about a week, then I started getting the error message, now I get NOTHING but the error message. I want my money back!

Guest Says:
I just experienced the same problem E1.
After I read many comments I found out I should tighten the hand cuff. Its working properly and perfectly now.
