Why is the AED status indicator not showing a status (e.g. no blinking light)?
Most likely, the AED status indicator is not showing a status because the battery has died.
All AED units on the market today perform self-checks to report the operability of the device. If the device “fails” a self-check this will be reported visually and audibly in most cases. If the device is completely out of batteries the AED unit won’t be able to perform a self-check at all and the status indicator will be blank (i.e. there won’t be enough power to indicate that it has failed).
