Sat I had the 3rd instance with my Ping not wanting to prime. It took 4 rewinds and loads to finally get it to prime. I've had it since Jan. Had the issue in April, thought it was me. Did it again in May and I called in, they said it should be fine. This time it took more tries to get it to prime. I called and the rep said that there has been a few malfunctions with the piston stopping short of the cartridge and they would replace it. It was shipped overnight yesterday so should be at the house when I get there. It's always so easy to deal with Animas reps. I'm please with their immediate attention and honesty.

Yesterday I had a scare with my pump.I am on the Animas 2020 and we have a swimming pool.I have been in the water numerous times before without a hitch.The first warning sign I had was when I went under water I heard the alarm on my pump.I have had it for only 2 years.I got out of the water and went into the house.I looked at the screen and it was blank.I tried putting in a new battery and tried rewind and it came up with a message to call service.I called and they said they could get me a new one within 4 hours.Whew!I could still see approxiamately how much insulin I would need for supper beings it was around that time that it stopped working.I took an injection for my supper.We had just finished eating and my new pump was here.It took only about a few hours to get it to me. Did anyone else have this problem with their pump going so quickly?I have only had it since 2008.I sure hope my new one lasts alot longer.Iam happy with the improvements they have made.There is a protective coating on the screen now and it also asks me to confirm my blood sugar in 2 hours after bolussing.My previous 2020 never did that.I have a grey one now instead of blue.They didn't have a pink one available.

the question about reading the pump in the outdoors....the remote has a backlight, hold down the right button down for a few seconds and the screen will light up in a blue color....the actual pump has a button on the top that increases the brightnes of the letters ...hope this helps!

i got the ezmanager software with my 2020 but when i wanted to upgrade to ezmanager max it was around $50. that was a couple of years ago. supposedly that one had the drivers for vista for the IR dongle which i was restricted to using at home at the time. never did get it to work even with animas IT on the other line. i had to borrow a computer to download my pump until i could roll back to windows xp.
if your pump came with an IR dongle then you probably have the latest ez manager cd in the box too

Sarah, my Ping just came today and I had to either call or order the software at the Animas store. There is no cost to get it.

Ha ha, funny how different people prefer different things. The Animas screen is one of the major reasons I switched from Medtronic to Animas. I love love the screen despite the poor visibility in sunlight. That's the drawback to screens like that. But it's so much easier for me to see at night when I don't have my glasses on.

In sunlight I just use the Ping. Works for me.

I have heard rumors of a Ping in the works with a color screen like the pump though. Haven't heard anything about changing the pump screen though.

Does anyone know if there are plans to modify the display on the Ping pump so you can read it when outdoors? I love the pump except for the display which is horrible.
