Audio Processor

These support guides will help you handle and care for the SAMBA Processor.

Changing the Battery

The battery lasts up to one week, depending on the selected program, environment, and duration of use. The battery should be replaced regularly or when the sound level drops off dramatically. If the battery is low, it must be replaced when you hear a series of beeps.


Hold the SAMBA between two fingers. First open one side of the battery compartment, then open the other side.

SAMBA Changing the Battery (2)

Take a new battery and remove the foil. Place the battery in the audio processor’s battery compartment. Slide the battery compartment into the audio processor.
