BASIC STEPS
1. Verify the UHP is in place on the child’s head. If the
headpiece is not on the child’s head, place it on their
head, positioned over the internal implant (you will feel
the magnetic attraction).
2. Remove the Naída CI sound processor and UHP
from the child. Visually inspect the equipment and
systematically replace damaged parts.
• Check the Naída CI for damage.
• Inspect the headpiece cable for any damage (twisting,
fraying) or breakage and verify it is firmly attached to
the Naída CI.
• Verify the cable clicks or snaps into place when
connected to the UHP and to the Naída CI.
• Verify there is no visible damage to the UHP.
• Inspect cable ports and jacks for debris. Clean with
compressed air if needed.
• Inspect the T-Mic™ 2 microphone for any damage
(twisting, fraying) or breakage.
3. Verify the battery is charged. Remove the battery
and then re-attach it to the processor. When the battery
is engaged, the LED (located in the middle of the volume
control) will flash ORANGE to indicate battery status.
Three to four ORANGE blinks indicate the battery is
sufficiently charged to power the Naída CI. Replace with
a fully charged battery if needed.
Note: Zinc-Air batteries will not provide LED battery status
information upon start up. Only PowerCel™ batteries and
the AAA PowerPak power option will provide LED battery
status information.
If Program 1 is not the child’s standard program, push
the program button down briefly and then release the
button until you reach the child’s standard program. The
programs will switch in chronological order. The LED will
display 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 GREEN blinks depending on how
many programs are stored in the processor. The number
of GREEN blinks displayed indicates which program is in
use. Once the final program is reached, the Naída CI will
return back to the first program.
Note: The audiologist has the ability to disable the
program button. Check with the child’s family or
audiologist to determine if the program button has
been disabled.
5. Place the Naída CI and UHP back on the child and
use the Naída CI LED indications and internal alarms to
determine what the problem may be. See the charts on
page 3. The LED and internal alarms can be programmed
by the audiologist. Check with the child’s family or
audiologist to determine if these features are active.
Note: It is normal for the LED to blink red once per second
when the Naída CI is not being worn by the child.
6. Perform a listening check of the Naída CI sound sources
as described in the Tools for Schools™ Naída CI System
Check guide. Replace any malfunctioning equipment.
4. Reset the child’s Naída CI to Program 1. The
Naída CI will always default to Program 1 with the volume
set at the child’s standard settings when the battery
is removed and re-attached. If you have removed and
re-attached the battery as instructed in step 3 then the
Naída CI has been reset to Program 1.

Preventative Maintenance Tips
1
Store extra equipment in a Zephyr Dry & Store®.
Run through one drying cycle (8 hrs) nightly.
2
If a Zephyr Dry & Store is not available, keep extra
equipment in the Naída CI case. If you do not have
the case, you can use another sealed container or
a sealable bag.
3
To keep battery contacts from accumulating
debris, attach Naída CI PowerCel battery covers to
the PowerCel batteries when they are not in use.
The covers can be ordered from Customer Service
877-829-0026 (US and Canada).
