Looking for a recent post on restarting a G6 with out removing the Tx
Assume you mean restarting a sensor.
Here is recent discussion on several options on sensor restart / reuse.
Is there a way to restart the G6 transmitter? I have read about this and it seems they have stopped you from doing that but I want know if there is something else that has been discovered now.
I am going to need to start restarting things again which I had stopped for a long time. I just restarted my first sensor for G6. I had stopped doing that with G5 etc. but I used to wear them for like 30 days and then and I was getting terrible irritation so when I got G6 I just changed it every 10 days
I think my discussion was about restarting a transmitter, as the title says, although the sensor restart may have been discussed as well. I have forgotten now.
Someone here does that- I believe Tim said he puts a test strip underneath the transmitter instead of removing it.
I was not able to do it without removing the transmitter, the strip was too weak and It didn’t work for me.
I even have trouble removing the transmitter to do it anyway. I am using a metal hair clip to do it now. This time it is on my arm so I have no clue how I’m gonna be able to remove it it’s much easier to do if it’s on your leg or your stomach.
Yes, there was some overlap.
Tim’s post is better for answering sensor restart option.
Hey everyone, for those who restart your sensors, I discovered an easier way to restart where you don’t need to remove the transmitter.
I stumbled on this accidentally. I was changing out my transmitter. I forgot to put the new transmitter code into my pump and I started the sensor.
Obviously it didn’t work I got an error.
So I stopped it then I changed the transmitter code and tried to start again and it worked.
So when that sensor was finished I tried to repeat it.
If you follow these st…
The method where I switched transmitter codes will work but not if the sensor has low output it won’t work.
The best way is to put a test strip under the transmitter from the narrow side to block the contacts for 10 min. It works the same as removing the transmitter.
I covered both ways on this post.
Restarting A G6 Sensor
Let sensor expire or stop sensor.
Remove transmitter while sensor is still on your arm, you can use
a test strip or thin card, but a guitar pick works really good… - there
is a hidden clip in middle of the sides of sensor - try to get it to raise up slightly
on both sides and the transmitter will pop up.
Wait at least 15 minutes
longer is okay
Snap Transmitter back into the sensor
Start new sensor session using your original code
