Abstract：GE Voluson E8 is an advanced real-time three-dimensional color ultrasound diagnostic instrument, which plays an
important role in medical activities. In this paper, the imaging principle of GE Voluson E8 was summarized, the fault location was
explored through different troubleshooting methods, and 3 cases of image display failure and startup failure were introduced. The
fault phenomena were the problem of image display, the failure to turn on the display after screen crash and forced shutdown, and the
pencil-shaped high-echo interference in the image. The fault spots were determined as graphics card, graphics card and RTN main
power module, RSR and RST transmitting and receiving board by step investigation, and the fault was finally eliminated by replacing
corresponding components. The three maintenance cases introduced in this paper suggest that the troubleshooting should bedone
from easy to difficult , so as to save the maintenance time and find the fault point more accurately.
