Hearing Aid Repairs
Hearing aids are comprised of tiny electrical components that may experience wear and tear over time.
If this is the case, you’ll likely need to visit your hearing professional to have the problem assessed. Whether it’s simply due to aging or the units have been exposed to moisture, excessive wax, debris, or physical damage, you’ll want your hearing specialist to evaluate the extent of the necessary repairs.
Common Hearing Aid Issues
You may try to turn the hearing aids on in the morning and find that there is no sound, or you may find that the battery door has come unhinged. These things do happen, even when the hearing aids are properly cared for.
If you should experience an issue that requires a repair, take the hearing aids to your hearing care professional. They are equipped and trained to evaluate and diagnose broken hearing aids. Some minor hearing aids repairs can be done in the office setting relatively quickly; others may need to be sent to the manufacturer for repairs.
