    Many thanks for your suggestion. I have already contacted both Brookstone and Service Center.

    I guess I am just out of luck with this product. Again, thanks.

    Actually, no you are not out of luck.. Batteries plus can replace them they replaced mine and the new batteries last twice as long.. just unscrew it and remove the battery pack and give them a call and mail it at them they will do the job and mail it back and it will be good as new.. it only cost me 20$ + Tax Batteries Plus Address: 1250 Northlake Blvd, Lake Park, FL 33403

The current unit sold by Brookstone does not have a power cord. The unit is sealed and the battery is not replaceable. Many units eventually quit working when recharging cycle quits. Only solution is to replace the unit or contact Brookstone for their service center. Probably cheaper to replace the unit.

I have a Brookstone dual node massager model # BST-007 SKU# 324640 E 201637. (2001) It is old but hasn't been used much and the other day it quit working. The Brookstone Store told me that they do...


I don't have a solution, but I have the same unit, and it works sometimes, if I keep hitting the start button. The lights flicker more and more like it will start and eventually it does. I use it on my practice, so a fix would be welcome.

The cord on my massager is tearing. Can I get it


It kinda depends, You might be able to bring it to a store where they will repair it for a costly charge. If you are okay with working with your hands however, you can dismantle it yourself and just repair it yourself. How you would do that is, to take it apart screw by screw until you get the power supply out in the open and just wrap the wires that are torn with electrical tape and then just close it back up. MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE UNIT IF WORKING ON IT

Brookstone Max Massager failed


My Max 2 dual node just went bad. Mine is a model BST-007. All the electronics worked, but no movement of the thumpers. I opened up the unit and found the problem was a connecting rod between the rotating part and the oscillating part. Its a piece of rubber with 2 threaded rods coming out of each end. The rubber simply broke. I found the EXACT part at Ace hardware for $5.00. It was an easy fix!

Can't disassemble massager.


I don't have the Homedics programmable, but I have taken apart my Brookstone programmable (and lots of old Homedics massagers).

I'm going to guess the screws concealment method is similar. On the under side of the massager, look for small oval-shaped outlines that are the same color as the rest of the body. Mine had four. These are little plastic plugs that you can pry out with a tiny flat screwdriver or a razor blade. The screws are hidden under these plastic plugs.

I hope this helps

Need new nicad for AV 1002-CP


Unfortunatly they don't make the 1002 AV anymore so replacing the batteries is pretty much your only choice. Though the batteries in the AV 1002 aren't made to be user replaceable you can if you don't mind a little soldering.
The 1002 uses two Sub C (SC) size 1.2V 1300 mAh NiCd batteries. You can get the batteries from places like www.batteryspace.com. I got two 5000mAh Tenergy batteries from Amazon for $7.40 each; . Be sure to get batteries with tabs (don't try to solder directly to the batteries).
When you have the new batteries in hand, pull the three screws from the back of the 1002. Using a screwdriver carefully split the case (there are four plastic clips holding the back to the front). Pry the old batteries from the small patch of adhesive in the case front. Pull the two white plastic caps off the ends of the battery pack. Using a soldering iron, de-solder the positive (red) and negative (white) leads from the old batteries. Note, you'll actually be de-soldering the thyristor (?) at the end of the end of the negative lead from the battery tab.
Take the two new batteries and solder the positive tab of one to the negative tab of the other such that they can be folded together to make a cylindrical pack that looks like the one you're replacing.
Solder the Red positive lead to the free positive tab and the thyristor to the free negative tab of your new battery pack.
Wrap the whole thing in electrical tape, making sure the thyristor is in good contact with one of the batteries and that there is no exposed wire that could cause a short.
Put the two plastic caps on your new battery pack, place the pack in the case and re-assemble the case.
Not sure how long the new batteries will take to charge but give it at least 24 hrs to make sure.
If you're not handy with solder, it might be worth spending a little time surfing some of the DIY battery pack forums (there's actually quite a few) and there's probably several good videos out there as well.
This project sounds much worse than it is and it beats tossing an excellent $60 ******** in the dust bin. Good luck!
