Hello, I’m Daniel Hewson, and I’m here to talk about something that’s important to me: your hearing healthcare.
As someone who wears hearing aids and has worked with many hearing aid wearers, I know how important these devices are to your daily life.
When your hearing aids stop working, it can be frustrating and isolating.
It’s essential to know what to look for when your hearing aid needs repairing and how to get it fixed.
Here are some of the most common issues people experience with hearing aids.
No Sound or Weak Sound
If you are experiencing no sound or weak sound from your hearing aid, it could be a sign of a problem.
Before getting your hearing aid repaired, ensure the device is turned on, the volume is up, and the battery is fully charged. If those are all fine, you may need to bring your hearing aid in for repair.
Feedback or Whistling
Incorrect insertion of the device in your ear, wax buildup, or a loose-fitting earmold could all contribute to feedback or whistling from your hearing aid.
Try taking out and replacing your hearing aid to ensure it is positioned correctly. It might be time for a repair if the problem continues.
A low battery, bad wiring, or damaged microphones may all be to blame for your hearing aid’s sporadic sound.
If changing the battery doesn’t resolve the issue, it’s time to examine your hearing aid.
Hearing aids are fragile devices that can easily be damaged from drops, impacts, or exposure to moisture.
If your hearing aid has physical damage, such as a cracked casing, damaged tubing, or corroded battery contacts, it’s crucial to get it repaired as soon as possible.
When to Seek Professional Help
If you’re experiencing any of the above issues with your hearing aid, it’s essential to seek professional help. Attempting to fix the device on your own can cause more harm than good and may void your warranty.
