Hello Chris. I see you post on the Yahoo CGMS group. I remember seeing you post about this on Yahoo CGMS. Anyway, I had that problem just start this past weekend and called and found out it is a “glitch” when I called. I tried to “reset” by taking toothpick to hole in back - hole is next to sticker with s/n, Dexcom address & phone number, etc. Unfortunately the “reset” did not solve the problem and Dexcom told me that the “reset” would not work. They told me to just charge the receiver for one hour each day. Another weird thing that happened was that two separate times the battery charge bar didn’t scroll - each time I thought “YIPPEEE! The problem went away!” but unfortunately the problem did not go away.
I just got home from picking up my kids from school and I found out FEDEX tried to deliver a package but need a signature. I called FEDEX and found out it came from Dexcom. So now I’m wondering if they overnighted a new receiver?
I wish there was a way to solve the problem of flashing battery charge bar without having to get a new receiver. I fear that if I get another receiver it will get the same glitch as I believe you recently got your Dexcom Seven Plus and the receiver I got with the glitch came last month. I also wish that they would have the receiver “beep” all the time without having to do a snooze feature to get the beep to go off the first time. Even with the problems, I still love the Dexcom and can’t imagine living without it now.
Hope someone can give you better answers than me.
