    Error d2 means insufficient credit on key to bring you out of emergency credit. You need to put at least another tenner on the key, ideally. If the meter can read the key and the meter says error d2, then the key is working fine and the problem is usually with the shop.

    @DebF_EONNext Help I have the same issue. I have been to four shops and none of them can load my key with credit. My meter beeps and flashes code "D2 error". I tried to order a new key twice this week but none have arrived from you at Eon. I phoned back and got an activation code for a new key and told I'd get a new one at the shop;but after going to the only two shops anywhere near me who do this service, the code was invalid so they could not register me a new key. I am now left with no working key, no way of activating emergency credit as a working key needs to be in the meter to do so and I am down to my last few pounds and unable to top up. I have a vulnerable pensioner in her 70s who now cannot get have the heating on. HELP!!!!!!!

    Hey @SmithAccount,

    Welcome to the community ๐Ÿ˜Š Sorry to read that you've been having trouble collecting a new key with your code. If your code hasn't worked then we would usually need to send a key in the post, I would suggest that you contact our Energy Specialists, you can find all of our contact information on our How to Contact us thread.

    If you go off supply before you are able to get a new key again you should contact an Energy Specialist who will be able to help you get back on supply in an emergency.

    It may also be worth checking to see if you can have smart pay as you go fitted where you can top up online, through the app, by phone or at the shop ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Hi.
    I have ordered a new key twice now and was assured it would come the next day both times, but nothing has arrived several days later. If one of these turns up tomorrow can I use it and will it definitely work? I am desperate now. I have rang your experts and the second time was not a very pleasant experience as he hung up on me saying he had no more time to deal with me which was very rude. How long do the activation codes stay valid for? The reason I ask is that I had to walk for over two hours to get to one of the shops. Would the code have expired before I got there as I made the phone call an hour before I left. I cannot just leave the house on spec as I have an elderly pensioner here I am looking after and I have no transport either so cannot just dash 2.8 miles!

    @SmithAccount the code should stay active for 28 days I believe.

    I'm sorry that you had that experience with an energy specialist this is not the behavior we would expect and I will feed this back. I'm going to pop you a message and get some details from you and see if I can find out what's going on ๐Ÿ˜Š
