    I wear the minimed CGMS. My transmitter stopped working :( so we had to order a new one. For some reason that one kept on losing signal and automaticly restarted itself. I sent it back to get a replacement. When they sent us another one, the same thing happened. :eek: We kept on going back and forth with minimed but none of them are working! :mad: I tried 6 different transmitters! I might have to switch to Dexcom because we can't get anything to work. Any suggestions???

    I thought that at first, but the reciver works with the older transmitters, but not the new ones.

    To clarify my wonderful daughter's OP... we've tried 3 new transmitters, not 6. As the saying goes everything looks bigger when you're small ;). Also the old transmitter is working fine, we got the new one (and the two that replaced it) in the hopes of having a backup system.

    So in the past 6 weeks, we've used 6 sensors, 1 week at a time. Any time a new (2010 model) transmitter is connected to any sensor, and using either the old or new receiver, it drops signal every day or so and needs a restart. The 2008 model transmitter worked with all the sensors and both transmitters, just as it has since 2008. So something is wrong with the 3 transmitters we just received. MM is providing great customer service so far so I think we'll have it solved soon.

    I remember reading your post about this, but couldn't remember if you had tried a difference receiver.. Are they all from the same batch? Kaylee got her new guardian with receiever and transmitter in mid January.. its been excellent.
