  • Causa
    The connection between the beeper subassembly and the pump may fail. the gemstar infusion pump will identify this failure during the "self-test" while powering up which will result in a beeper error ("code 10/001/000"). this beeper error (code 10/001/000) is a service alarm that places the pump in an inoperable mode and requires service before it can be returned to service.
