When the ACCU-CHEK Aviva glucometer’s LCD displays “E-9,” it’s time to change the battery. The error code indicates that the battery is nearly dead. If the code appears despite the gadget having a new battery, the user may need to reset the metre.
The ACCU-CHEK Aviva Glucometer Can Be Reset
The user must remove the battery from the gadget to reset the metre. With the battery removed, the user can complete the reset by pressing any button on the metre. If there are no further issues, the device should power up after inserting the battery.
Codes for Additional Batteries
The E-9 isn’t the only error code that indicates a battery problem. The battery is failing if the battery icon appears at the top of the screen. An Err in the centre of the screen indicates that the battery is almost dead. It’s time to replace the battery in both circumstances. Ignoring the warnings could result in a power outage.
What is the ACCU-CHEK Aviva Glucometer’s battery type?
The ACCU-CHEK Aviva requires two 3-volt lithium coin cell batteries, according to the manufacturer. This type of battery can be found in a variety of places, including drug stores, general merchandisers, and online sellers. The product number CR2032 should be written on the packaging label.
What is the procedure for replacing the batteries in an ACCU-CHEK Aviva Glucometer?
Changing the batteries is a straightforward procedure. Remove the cover from the battery door on the rear of the metre. Remove the old batteries and swap them out for new ones. The positive side of the new ones should be facing up. Replace the battery cover.
Additional Error Codes
Other fault codes on the ACCU-CHEK Aviva inform the user when there is a problem with the device. The indicator reading “E-8” indicates that the machine is overly hot or chilly. When the time and date settings are incorrect, the message “E-10” shows. The code “E-1” denotes a test strip that is damaged or wrongly coded. A complete list of error codes can be found in the manual.
Along the top and bottom of the screen, some problem codes show. These codes may include associated images or phrases. A drop of blood, a test strip, an asterisk, and a thermometer are among the icons.
How to Take Accurate Readings
It is critical for diabetics to have accurate blood sugar levels assessments. They must change their medication and nutrition based on the information. They can take a number of procedures to ensure accurate results. The first step is to wash and dry their hands before taking a blood sample. Another possibility is to utilise the second drop of blood rather than the first. Contaminants are more likely to be found in the initial drop.
Diabetics must also follow the meter’s manufacturer’s guidelines for use and maintenance. The metre should be kept in a dry, temperature-controlled environment. Everything is kept together in one place thanks to a carrying case intended to accommodate the metre and testing equipment.
