How to Change Handpiece Windows on the Elite or Elite+ Laser
Hey guys, this is Paul with Laser Service Solutions. Today I'm going to show you how to change your Handpiece Windows on your Cynosure Elite and Elite Plus. Okay, the first thing you want to do before you touch any optics on the laser is you want to put some gloves on. Then you want to take your Handpiece and your Calport, typically before you calibrate the machine or after each treatment, you want to check the Handpiece Windows in here. You disconnect your Handpiece, plug the fiber right back into the Calport, then you take your tool here that fits into this little brass ring. Then I set the Handpiece down like this on a flat surface, and then I unscrew it like that, until the ring is all the way out.
Then you just dump it out like that. At that point you inspect your Window, sometimes you can clean it, if it doesn't clean up then you want to go ahead and replace it with a new one. You take your new one, drop it into the Handpiece like that, sometimes it might not sit flat, so you just want to tap it. Make sure it's seated flat down there. You want to take the brass ring with the little grooves facing up, drop that down in there, take the tool back down into the grooves like this. Then what I do is I go in reverse as if unscrewing it until it clicks, like that, and then tighten it. That way you don't cross-thread it while you install it.
That's it, nice and snug. The importance of this is that a dirty window can damage the Calport on your machine and once that happens and it doesn't clean up anymore then you have to give us a call. Our phone number is 856-853-7555. The windows come in packs of 20, you can check them out on our website laserservicesolutions.com.
