The Simple Fix
If this is not the problem, the next issue may be the battery. Unfortunately, hearing aid batteries have a shelf life that is shorter than most people would like. Batteries give little notice that they are about to die, and therefore they can cease to work at any moment. Without the battery to power the hearing aid, the entire machine will stop working. Simply replace the battery and you will be good to go. Note, we have had patients who had dead batteries from some drug stores.
Finally, like everything else, sometimes a hearing aid needs to be cleaned. It may become clogged with wax or condensation, which could keep it from working properly. If this is the case, simply clean the hearing aid or replace the waxguard on the device as instructed by your doctor, and your hearing aid should begin working as normal.
