I’m having problems restarting a Dexcom G6 Sensor. In the past, I’ve been quite successful with the remove transmitter, and start a new session with an existing sensor method to extend the use of a sensor.
However, this is the first time that I’m trying to restart with a new 8Kxxxx transmitter, and it’s not working. Around an hour into the warm up, I get a “sensor failed start” message on Xdrip+ (version e14bae1-2020.7.13 Code 2007131533).
The xdrip home screen says i’m still in warm up at the top, but sensor failed at the bottom. See my screen capture below. Is it hopeless? I think I’ll change the sensor for this session, but it would be nice to be able to restart the next one.
Ok while I was drafting the post above the picture, I had to leave. After a couple of hours, the warmup period ended, but the sensor error is still present and I’m not getting data. Kind of feels hopeless for a restart. Any advice or experience is appreciated. Did Dexcom succeed in spoiling restarts with the 8Kxxxxxx transmitters? Any success stories and techniques are appreciated.
