Esprit 3G signal transmission issue


New Member
Hi, i have a problem with my Esprit 3G. It has stopped working while i was walking, it shut down suddenly. After doing several checks:
-My cochlear implant: OK
-Cable and coil: OK (checked with the Esprit 3g for the other ear)
-Microphone: OK (did the earphone check with other person)

So i guess the problem is that the processor is not sending signal to the coil. The red light of the signal checker doesn't turn on.
Is there a faulty component that could be repaired? Or would i have to change the whole processor? The processor is 7-8 years old or so. I'm considering the option to upgrade to a newer processor.

I would appreciate any help.

Upgrade now. The 3G is no longer supported in any way by Cochlear and they don't even want the old processors back for recycling. My daughter upgraded to the Nucleus 5 over a year ago and has much better sound quality then she had with the 3G. More flexibility in the programs, too.
