The flight mode functionality was changed from Alera to Verso to prevent patients from accidentally placing the instrument in flight mode. These instructions will help provide additional detail about getting Verso instruments out of flight mode.
Updated User Guide instructions on Verso flight mode:
It is possible to disable wireless operation by opening and closing the battery compartment three times within a ten second period (open-close, open-close, open-close). Your instruments will now be in flight mode.
If the hearing instrument is in flight mode, the hearing instrument must have been operating in flight mode for at least 10 seconds before attempting to enable wireless again. It is possible to re-enable wireless operation by opening and closing the battery door once. 10 seconds after this operation is completed, wireless operation will begin again.
Note: It is important to wait an additional 15 seconds after wireless function resume before opening and closing the battery compartment again for any reason. If the battery compartment is opened and closed during this 15 second window, flight mode will resume.
If you encounter a hearing instrument that appears to be stuck in flight mode, make sure you wait the required 15 seconds after enabling wireless mode before opening the battery door again. If you don’t wait long enough, the hearing instruments will move back into flight mode and the patient will mistakenly think there is a problem with the hearing instrument.
