Troubleshooting the Fisher Wallace Stimulator®
Having difficulty using your device?
If the green “ON” light does not illuminate when the device is turned ON, first turn the device completely OFF by rotating the dial clockwise until you hear a click, then try turning the device ON again. Replace the batteries with fresh ones if you still have trouble.
If the yellow indicator lights (1-4) do not illuminate, be sure the sponges are clean and thoroughly wet. The hair / skin beneath the sponge electrodes must also be sufficiently wet. People with thick hair may have more difficulty wetting the hair enough to cause the electrodes to conduct.
To test if the electrodes are working, press the two sponge electrodes together (like an “oreo cookie”), turn the device ON (green light flashing), and while continuing to squeeze the sponge electrodes together, continue dialing up (counterclockwise) until you see the yellow lights illuminate.
If the yellow lights illuminate when you test them but not when you have them in use on your head / body, then the wetness of the sponges / hair / skin is insufficient or the tightness of the strap / headband holding the electrodes in place may be insufficient. Make sure the strap / headband provides a snug fit. If the strap / headband is not pressing the electrodes firmly enough, adequate conductivity may not occur. Press the wet electrodes firmly while the device is on and see if this causes the yellow lights to illuminate. If they illuminate, you may need to purchase a smaller or an adjustable headband.
Make sure the sponges are replaced every two weeks for best performance. Old sponges may not hold water sufficiently for the lights 1-4 to illuminate. You can buy replacement sponges here.
If your device beeps throughout the treatment session, or fails to beep at the end of the session, replace the batteries.
