3 days, 2 sensors. Just failed again after 20 minutes. The sensor looks untouched. Tegaderm is still intact. Going to try and restart it and see what happens. Still p***ed about losing 2 hours of readings.

Are you using any skin prep under the Tagaderm?

No, but I will try. After a re-start It's back reading again.

I had a problem with the three ??? when I used skin prep right under the sensor, this is why I was wondering. The rep said only use the skin prep where the sensor inserter will not go through the skin.
I mark the skin where I am going to place the sensor place the skin prep away from the aensor placement area place the tagaderm, then insert. then I skin prep the top of the sensor adhesive pad then place more tgaderm to the whole mess.
