An Accu-Chek Compact Plus is a meter used to determine the amount of glucose found in a sample of blood. The display screen shows messages during normal use, prompting the user through operation screens. Some screens that show operation prompts include meter ready, average blood sugar result and the test reminder, according to Roche.

When an Accu-Chek Compact Plus meter malfunctions, use the owner’s booklet to look up the error codes or use the online screen shots by clicking on the one closely resembling the error message on the screen. Follow the remedy provided in the manual or screen shot to correct the error. Some error codes, such as E22, E2 and end, indicating damage to the test drum, missing bar code and empty test drum in the meter, respectively, says Roche.

While testing the blood glucose level, a message may appear concerning the range of the test result. Reading error messages include hi and lo, signifying high and low blood sugar levels in the patient’s blood sample, states Roche.
