1) Upper button: This can be used to change between the microphone and accessory
setting (e.g. telecoil and other assistive listening devices that can be plugged in).
2) Lower button: On/Off and Select Button – Please remember to switch your speech
processor OFF when it is not in use. (please see: “controls” section for more information)
a. To switch the speech processor ON, press and hold the select button until the
green light flashes.
b. To switch the speech processor OFF, press and hold the select button until the
steady orange light disappears.
c. A short press on the select button allows you to switch between the maps given
by the audiologist. The CP810 device can store up to four maps (P1-P4).
The number of green flashes you see corresponds to the number of the
selected program.
3) Microphones: The processor has 2 microphones for detecting sound, placed within a
short distance from each other, enabling directionality of the incoming signal. A
microphone cover helps prevent dirt and dust from getting into the microphones.
The cover can be removed and replaced when it is dirty. This is not easy
to do and you will need a small screwdriver to get it out. Please discuss
with your audiologist as you DO NOT WANT TO DAMAGE the
microphones.
4) Accessory Socket: The socket is situated underneath the silver latch. It can be used to
connect accessories to your speech processor such as:
Monitor earphones, FM systems, TV/Hi-FI or Personal Audio cable
5) The Coil and Magnet: The magnet keeps the coil in place on the head as it attracts to the
magnet in the internal device. It transmits the information coming from the speech
processor to the internal device.

6) The Coil Cable: this connects the coil to the processor and can be replaced separately.
Please be careful when connecting and disconnecting the cable.
7) Speech Processing Unit: This processes the sounds picked up by the microphone. The
signal is then sent to the internal device via the cable and the coil.
8) Battery: (your audiologist will advise you on the most appropriate batteries for your map)
The standard disposable battery unit uses 2 x Power One Implant plus batteries.
These will last on average 50-60 hours, depending on the energy the map
requires.
The standard rechargeable battery unit can be used too and will last up to 22
hours, depending on the energy the map requires.
The compact rechargeable battery unit can be used too and will last up to 12
hours, depending on the energy the map requires.
9) Ear hook: The ear hook allows the speech processor to sit behind the ear comfortably.
The ear hook can be changed by pulling it down. Younger children can use a “Snugfit”
which is a different kind of hook that helps to keep the processor in place more securely
than using the ear hook alone. The ear hook is see-through and you can see the LED alert
system underneath it.
To lock the processor settings with the processor buttons:
Quickly press the upper and lower button together and the green light will flash. This prevents
your child from changing the program or settings.
To lock the processor to the battery unit: (i.e. to lock the bayonet connection)
To prevent children from removing the battery unit from the processor: lift the accessory socket
cover (4), to reveal the lock. Using a pair of tweezers or a screwdriver push the latch to the left to
lock the battery unit to the processor. To unlock push right. (see picture 1)
To lock the battery unit: (when using disposable batteries)
To prevent children form taking the batteries out: using a screwdriver, gently rotate the lock, on
the bottom of the battery unit, in a clockwise direction until it is positioned horizontally. To unlock
rotate in an anti-clockwise direction until positioned vertically. (see picture 2)

Remote Assistant functions
Daily checks:
It is essential that you check the processor and Remote Assistant every morning to ensure that it
is functioning effectively - it may be some time before your child is able to let you know if there is a
problem with the device.
Before putting the speech processor on:
1)
Ensure that the batteries for both the processor and RA are fully charged
2)
Check that all the connections (coil - cable, battery – processor) are making good contact
and are not loose.
3)
Check the cables and coil are not damaged. You can place the coil on the back of the RA to
check the signal is working, you will see a green signal flash if its working okay.
4)
Listen to the microphone via the listening earphones. (If the sound is distorted, please check
the microphone ports for any blockages i.e dirt/dust build up.)
5)
Check the LED lights on the processor and the troubleshooting screen on the RA for any
faults.
6)
The RA will let you know when there is a fault and will take you through step by step what
you need to do to resolve the problem.

Do’s and Don’ts!
Don’t wear another person’s speech processor, all processors are programmed on an
individual basis, yours is only programmed with your personal parameters.
If you have two processors:
Don’t switch the processors. Use the left one for your left ear and the right one for your right
ear.
Don’t bathe or shower whilst wearing your processor, or headset. The processor is only splash
proof and not waterproof.
Don’t shave the scalp as some hair helps the coil to grip.
Don’t touch battery contacts when changing batteries.
Don’t go through metal detectors at airports. You can be scanned with a hand held scanner
from the neck down.
Don’t use electric head lice combs.
Do ensure the best coupling between the transmitting coil and the implant, this may mean
trimming the hair directly over the implant, leaving about 2mm hair growth.
Do contact the airline direct before travelling as they all have their own rules.
Do turn the processor off during LANDING and TAKE OFF if travelling by aeroplane.
Do remove all external parts when involved in body contact sports.
Do remove all external parts when playing on plastic slides, bouncy castles etc.
Do show your medical card to the medical specialist if attending hospital for any treatment.

FM Leads:
These are to be used with radio aid systems (usually used within the school setting). The Implant
Programme can provide the first lead but any spares or replacements must be provided by the
local service. Leads can be obtained from:
Cochlear Europe LTD,
9 Weybridge Business Park,
Addlestone Road,
Addlestone,
Surrey,
KT15 2UF
Telephone: 01932-871500
TV/Hi-Fi Cable:
This cable is to be used with televisions, computers and AC powered audio equipment. Your child
will need to set the volume control appropriately and adjust the microphone sensitivity on their
speech processor to alter the balance between environmental sound and the sound coming in
from the audio equipment. It is electrically isolated to protect your child from an electric shock.
When used with the television, plugging in the cable may stop the sound from the television’s
main speaker, depending on your television. A qualified electrician will be able to alter your set so
that both speaker and cable work together. Please ask your Implant Centre for details.
Personal Audio Cable:
This cable is for use with personal stereos. Connect the cable between the external input socket
on the speech processor and the headphone socket on the personal stereo. This cable must only
be used with battery operated equipment and not mains powered equipment as it has not been
electrically isolated.
Lapel Microphone:
This microphone can be used instead of the headset microphone during group discussions, where
the microphone can be handed around to individual speakers. The cable is plugged into the
external input socket on the speech processor. It can also be used when the headset microphone
is thought to be faulty.
Monitor Earphones:
These are to be used by parent/carer to listen to the headset microphone to check for faults.
Dry store and brics:
The Dry store is used to remove excessive moisture from the speech processor, for example, in
humid environments or from perspiration. Place the speech processor and headset in the dry
store, along with a dry bric and leave overnight. For further information, read the instruction leaflet
with the Dry store.
