What if I don't get an error, but the device reader isn't working?
If the Accu-Chek Smart Pix device reader fails to appear on the computer as a drive: Check that the blue LED light on the front is lit. Check whether your computer and operating system satisfy the system requirements for the Accu-Chek Smart Pix device reader system. Check to make sure the USB connector is firmly plugged into the correct socket on the computer. If the Accu-Chek Smart Pix device reader is still not recognized as a drive, plug the device into a different USB socket. If the Accu-Chek Smart Pix device reader fails to emit any display signals and if the above tests don't solve the problem, try testing the device on a different computer, if available. If there is still no sign of operation, the device may be faulty. This also applies if there are error signals flashing in the center of the display that are not associated with data transfer. Please contact Roche Diabetes Care.
What do the error signals mean?
The Accu-Chek Smart Pix device reader reports potential errors during data transfer and use by causing the center display section 8 to flash. Here's what you can do: In the browser navigation, click the Read Device button. The center display section should flash slowly now, indicating that it is actively searching for devices and that it is ready for data transfer. If the error signal continues, you can unplug the Accu-Chek Smart Pix device reader and plug it back in again. Disregard any Windows error messages about removing the data medium. Try repeating the transfer again. If this error signal occurs again, check the following: Has the meter been properly prepared for data transfer? Is there anything obstructing the signal between the device IR port and the Accu-Chek Smart Pix device reader? Is the device too far away? Is there any interference from bright lights or sunlight? Often, in the case of error messages associated with data transfer, the issue is interference with data transfer, or a problem with the meter or insulin pump.
Can the Accu-Chek Smart Pix device reader store readings in my computer?
