To perform a test, insert a test strip as far as it will go. The display will turn on and the meter will briefly perform system checks.
To change the time and date, start with the meter off, then press and hold ▼ for five seconds until the start-up test screen appears. After the test screen, the pre-set time and date will appear on the display.
To turn the meter on to review past results, start with the meter off, then press and release ▼.
Every time you turn your meter on, a start-up test screen will appear for two seconds. All segments of the display should appear briefly on the test screen to tell you that the meter is working properly. To check that all display segments are working, as soon as the start-up test screen appears, press and hold ▲ to keep the test screen display on. Release ▲ to proceed to the next step.
If the meter does not power on, try changing the meter battery.
CAUTION: If any information is missing from the start-up test screen, there may be a problem with the meter. Call the OneTouch® Customer Care Line at 1 800 663-5521.
