On the way driving home today I received a text message. My Phone Clip sent the audio chime to the HA’s like normal. Not long after that I started hearing a real faint clicking noise in my left ear. Started looking around the car for the source of the noise, turn signal, change in the cup holder, etc. Did not find anything.
Then I realized I was only hearing it in my left ear. Cupped hand over the HA and the sound was unchanged. Rubbed my finger across the mics and no sound. Flipped open the battery door and closed it again. Clicking sound instantly came back. Hit the change program button and got a series of beeps that I have never heard before. Two short quick beeps, a pause, two more short quick beeps, repeated about 6 or 7 times. Then stopped. Never heard that beep pattern before. And the manual does not list a description for any beep patterns.
Checked my pocket remote. Right Ear showed standard volume control icon. Left ear showed an arrow forming a circle which is the Resound Unite Remote Controls symbol for “searching for ha”.
Turned off Phone Clip and power cycled the ha again. Still had clicking.
Turned off aid for about 2 minutes. Powered on again. Was operational again.
Trouble has repeated again a few times tonight. When receiving a text, or placing a call.
Last thing I did was replace the battery. Has not happened since that. But, have also not received a text or call since then either.
My HA’s are the Beltone True 17’s which are a spin off version of the ReSound Alera 9’s. Have the Unite Accessories.
Anyone else with ReSound Alera/Future/Beltone Trues ever have this problem? What about other brands? If so, did it require sending off to have it repaired?
