    Have you had the ClearView C video magnifier for a few years? The batteries of the control panel may then be empty. Read below to find out how to replace the batteries.

    Another possibility is that the control panel must be reconnected to the video magnifier. Follow the instructions to re-pair the console.

    To replace the batteries, open the battery compartment on the side of the control panel. Depending on the model, a screw may need to be removed. Place two new button cell batteries (type CR2025) in the compartment. Close the box and the control panel is ready for use again. The control panel needs to be reconnected.
