    It's my belief that when you get a spontaneous restart on a sensor that it resets the 7 day clock from that point. Can anyone confirm this? My husband and I are leaving the kids with my parents for a night, and I just want to be able to tell my dad what to expect.

    Thanks!

    I was under the impression that the 7 day clock only started after the transmitter has been plugged into the charger again. I've only had one sensor which spontaneously restarted and I pulled it before day 7, so I can't be sure. But in general the 7 day clock doesn't start whenever you detach and re-attach - you have to plug into the charger as well - so I don't know why it would be different for spontaneous restarts.

    Sorry for the vague and unhelpful response. :p

    I thought that it resets the 7 day clock, too. I've never had the chance to test it though, because spontaneous restart sensors tend to be troublesome and usually get pulled before they hit the initial 7 day mark.

    Two things:

    (1) I think for the old transmitters that's true - they have to be connected to the charger in order to reset the clock. With the new ones, I believe they just have to be disconnected and reconnected. I don't know when the dividing line is between new and old, but I'm sure we have one new one and one old one. I just don't know which is on him right now. :rolleyes:

    (2) I still think that spontaneous restarts act differently. I'm pretty sure this happened to us in the past, and I was surprised to learn that it resets the clock (even with old transmitters). Basically, anytime you get the actual 2 hour warm-up, it means the clock has been reset. I'm not 100% sure of this, however.

    Oh well. I guess we'll see. :p Thanks for the input, guys. :)

    Huh, that's interesting. I think my transmitter is an old one (from November '09) because I definitely need to plug into the charger at day 7. I want to know what happens with a spontaneous restart now. (Although, on my only experience of a spontaneously restarting sensor, it definitely wasn't one that I'd want to keep in for 7 days.. :rolleyes:)

    Look at the transmitter ID on the pump screen. :p Then look at your other transmitter. :D Of course, the earlier number would be the older transmitter.

    I think the new version is 1.3 and it says it on the pump. The charge last 14 days, but there's a catch--it still has to be disconnected before the end of day 7. You can just pull it apart for a few seconds and reclick without charging--good to know if you can't find your charger.

    Well, FYI, a spontaneous restart DOES reset the 7 day clock. (Yay!)
