I’ve had my pump for a little over a year and have really made it part of me – even if it makes me a bit of a cyborg. Well, today I had it unplugged for a short time to change clothes. I plugged it back in and went to eat lunch and started getting a “Button Error”.
I tried to acknowledge the error. No luck.
I tried to hold each button to see if I could release whatever was happening. No luck.
I took out the battery for a few minutes and put it back in. No luck.
The errors started making crazy sounds and becoming a bit of a bother.
I then took a shot for my lunch and called Medtronic.
They had me put in a new battery. No luck.
I will get a new pump tomorrow. Fortunately it’s under warranty for another 3 years. I have 14 days to mail back the current one or pay $3k. Isn’t it crazy that it costs that much? Still, I love having a pumpie.
It was nice that it took less than 5 minutes for Medtronic to say that they will definitely have the new one to me tomorrow. GREAT customer service.
I do have a “skin” on my current one so may have to pick out a new one for the replacement. Maybe something purple for football season. Go Ravens!
