Linda:.. Welcome to the world of pumping..I have been on the 507C now a month..
Had same problem..had to change batteries(boy! was I nerveous with all these
alarms going off!!),A-35 alarm..I think with priming the syringe, this may rectify
your problem.. I'm still having problems getting rid of the air bubbles..the
room-temperature insulin is helping quite a bit.... my educator pre-set the -0-
alarm to go off in 8 hours is pump has not been touched.. so if your last bolus
was at 5-5:30, then the alarm go off - guess when.. in the wee hours..gawd! I have
to get that changed...no need for alarm clocks LOL! anyhow,, enough
rambling..welcome again to the club..
