I've read a lot of posts on here, but can't seem to find any specific to this issue.
I was changing my pod out the other night. Everything was going just fine, I was following the directions, but when I went to fill the new pod with the insulin, it never gave those two beeps (I guess those are to let you know it senses the insulin in there?). I didn't use that pod, and instead used a different one with no problem.
BUT now the pod gives two series of beeps every few minutes. It's not very loud and we can ignore it, but I wasn't able to find in the instruction book what these beeps mean.
Here are my questions:
1. Can I still use the pod next time I need to change? Will the pdm recognize it?
2. If I can't use the pod, can I extract all that insulin out of there? I tried previously, but wasn't able to get anything but some bubbles. I hate to waste it!
Thanks for your help everyone!
Reinstalled? If you are pulling insulin out of a dead pod it is a throw away. The cap does not reinstall. The cap issue is only on an uninstalled pod. Glad to hear your 5 years and still OK with omnipod. Seems like an inordinate amount of problems that folks are having. I for one am happy with the system and yes I will use a pod wether it beeps or not the key is wether it primes and it always does.
