Troubleshooting Guide



Kindly check instructions below and see if it will make your device working again: 

If Device not working at all

  • Make sure the volume is turned on 
  • Check if the battery is inserted correctly (+ and in the right place). If you have to force the battery, you probably have it wrong.
  • Check to see that the battery is not dead. If in doubt, try a new one (where you have to remove the sticky paper flap off the battery surface). A dead battery is the most common reason for "dead aids".
  • Check battery contacts to be sure they are not corroded.
  • Check earmold to be sure that sound bore is not clogged with wax.

If Sound is Weaker than Usual

  • Check battery. Replace if necessary.
  • Check tubing for cracks, fraying, moisture, etc. Replace if necessary.
  • Check that the earmold is not clogged with wax.
  • Reposition the earmold for a tighter fit; it may have been whistling (feedback) at a pitch you cannot hear.

If Aid Goes On/Off or Has Scratchy Sound

  • Flick on/off switch back and forth, in case dust or lint has collected in the controls.
  • Check battery contacts.
  • Think where you have been. If in a very humid environment or have experienced excessive perspiration from vigorous activities, moisture may clog the aid and distort sounds. Use a hearing aid dehumidifier overnight and try again (see discussion above under "Moisture").
  • Check the tubing from earmold to the hearing aid and replace it if bent, cracked, frayed
