Why has my hearing aid stopped working?

Question by : Why has my hearing aid stopped working?
Last night i was just sitting around and my hearing simply turned off. it seems like a low battery at first, (my other had ran out earlier that day) so i went and replaced the battery. however, it still did not work after. I tried basic things like cleaning the hearing aid and i tried a second new battery, nothing worked. sometime during the process it turned back on, and i went on my way but then after just a couple of minutes I heard it fade out over about a second, and stop working. it has not worked since. I have had hearing aids for over 10 years now and am very experienced using them, meaning a lot of simple mistakes i think can be ruled out. I am not sure of exact model name. but my set are by oticon, and are the over the ear style.

How long have you had that particular one? Maybe you just need a new one altogether, and not just the battery.

    There are separate parts of your hearing aid. The receiver sits in your ear, there is some sort of connector, and there is the aid itself, which includes a bunch of switches. Those things all age out. You probably need to visit the dealer or a good technician. You can also investigate spare parts (this is just a suggestion, not a recommendation):

    Look up the exact model number and “parts”, also “service”.
