Error symbol on ovulation test

I purchased a 20 tester, advanced digital ovulation kit. I have more than half the test strips left, but my monitor will not work anymore and has a book/manual (error) icon on the screen. Can I get another monitor mailed to me to use the remainder of the testing strips? Not happy because this was not a cheap kit.

Hi Bambi,

If the 'book' stays on the screen for longer than 10 minutes, unfortunately it is a permanent error.

I have the same problem. Had peak fertility and then the book sign showed and won't go away. I am very disappointed as i spent 40 euros purchasing this. I am very upset. everyone is telling me to call but I am not from the Uk so i have to call over seas and during your opening hours i am at work. I cannot call from my work line overseas. Is there another option.

I have bought this kit and it does not work. I tried two strips already and this ovulation kit is sooo dam expensive. I followed the directions and when I inserted the stick in the test, it blinked and then there was a solid stick on the monitor.It remained like this for about 15mins then blanked off. This is crazy. So expensive and it's not working. I want back a new working kit or my money refunded in full.

It is frustrating to keep having the book image when I follow all the steps as instructed. This kit is very expensive and it is not fair to waist money like that on defective products. Clear blue should stop making those opk tests as they are so bad. I will never purchase this brand anymore. This is a scam to steal people money. Horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope I can get my money back.

Hi Katie,

We were sorry to hear of your experience. The error you are experiencing occurs when something goes wrong during the testing procedure such as:

·   Not assembling the test in the correct sequence

·   Too much or too little urine being applied

·   Inserting the test stick into the Holder after applying urine

·   The test not being kept pointing downwards during or after applying urine

·   The test stick being ejected too soon

To assist your use, we would advise to follow the instructions carefully and try again. 

We'd be happy to chat if you'd like to talk through your questions.  Feel free to call us at 1-800-321-3279 and mention reference 001980568A.  We're open weekdays from 8:30-5:00 ET. 

Regards,
Sally.

I'm getting the error symbol too. I tried the cup method and now have received the error message on 3 consecutive test strips and it's a new kit .. just bought it about a month and a half ago. So frustrating. It came highly recommended, but I'm disappointed. :/

Very upset. I purchased the 20 strip advanced ovulation test and it worked correctly for 1 day and now for the past 3 days it keeps showing an error message. I should start to ovulate in the next 4-5 days and now I can’t track it. I’m trying to figure out my ovulation after a miscarriage and to have the test not work is extremely upsetting and frustrating. Is there anyway a new test system can be sent to me ASAP I still have strips I just need the actual tester.

We were sorry to hear of your experience. If the error message you are seeing is the 'book' and the test stick symbol, this occurs when something goes wrong during the testing procedure such as:

·   Not assembling the test in the correct sequence

·   Too much or too little urine being applied

·   Inserting the test stick into the Holder after applying urine

·   The test not being kept pointing downwards during or after applying urine

·   The test stick being ejected too soon

To assist your use, we would advise to follow the instructions carefully and try again. 

We were sorry to hear of your recent miscarriage. Please be advised, you shoud wait for 2 natural cycles to occur before using the test as the hCG from a recent miscarriage may cause misleading results. We'd be happy to chat if you'd like to talk through your questions.  Feel free to call us at 1-800-321-3279.  We're open weekdays from 8:30-5:00 ET.

I purchased a cable connected kit and the first time that I tried to sync the host to my phone it gave an book/manual error symbol. I still have ALL of my tests sticks left. I paid $55 for this test not and it doesn't even work right out of the box before I could even use it for the first time. Very disappointed and feeling ripped off.

I’m having the same issue and it is disappointing. I didn’t realize so many people have been experiencing the same issue.
