Siemens Sonata errors

Has anyone seen or experienced a similar error to the below on a Symphony or Sonata MRI.

When scanning noticeable with 6ch posterior anterior coils an error occurs and the red line comes on the status window and reports an error with RFPAK2204.

Then the follow errors occur.

RF system error - while scanning BTB2 left sleep mode
then while scanning BTB1 left sleep mode
Then while scanning IOP left sleep mode
RFAS left sleep mode

This happens whilst scanning and we note that the error happens with 6ch coils and 4 channel coil scans seem ok.

RFPA has been exchanged so far.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Thank you.

I would suggest that you run Testtools particularly on the RF system and see what errors (if any) show up. You may then be able to make a more informed determination of the problem. Also you may want to check the fibre optic cables going to the RFPA. I have seen where the light transmission along these in MR systems caused some strange problems in the past. If you have spares replace those that are currently on the RFPA with them.
