My new sonicare toothbrush has gone all wobbly.... on the bottom the following numbers to help you identify the model, etc: 080416 HX6910 the vibrating pin onto which the brush attaches is no longer straight up..it bends to the side when i'm brushing...something that hadn't been happening when i first bought the brush. it's as if the bushing for this part has deteriorated...and seems to be a design flaw... spoke to my dentist, Dr. Jack Binder on w. 74th st. here in new york city; i took the brush into show him - and he said that i should write you guys; he told me that he has confidence in your ability to make it right. can you advise?

    I have a sonicare toothbrush barely a year old and the pin that holds the brush head in place no longer vibrates as it should. The battery is fine, holds a good charge but it appears the pin is bent and no longer transmits the vibration on to the brush. Any one know who can fix this ?? It has to beat buying a new brush ! Thanks. You can get me on david@osirishealth.co.nz

Your suggestion worked! I took a small common screwdriver, carefully pried on the bottom plate on each side, a little at a time, and the whole motor assembly with O-ring, came out in one piece. There it was, a small phillips screw, in this sort of universal joint assembly at the top. I tightened it up, careful, its pretty small, won't stand too much torque, but it's tight now, and I think you saved me $100 or so, mine was getting so sloppy I expected it to fall apart any day, now it feels as tight as new.
Thanks so much!

Philips Norelco is a customer of mine, I have the same toothbrush, you will need to carefully remove the batter from the bottom of the toothbrush, this isn't the easiest task, but can be done. Once you have done so, there is a small philips head screw located below the pin, just tighten that up and it will work fine. Try not to apply too much pressure when brushing using HX6000 series toothbrushes.

I have the same brush. I opened it up and found the cast piece that holds the retaining nut for philips head screw cracked and broken in half. This is my second toothbrush with this problem. The brush lasted less than a year (about 9-months). The design overall was good, but this one small piece that hooks the universal joint into the magnet assembly is a weak link. Since the brush has a 2-year warranty, and this brush was the replacement brush for my first failure, I will be calling them for a replacement. The original brush with the fat handle and brushes with rare earth magnets was a great brush. It didn't have Li-Ion battery, but the assembly works great. However, with the newer, sleeker design comes better battery (it is replaceable sony Li-Ion in a holder inside) but weak small piece driving the stainless head rod out the top.

Hi, My touch screen has gone dead. Is there any


Since the screen is dead I would suggest the easiest way to back up / access important content is through your PC/laptop. Install the necessary Sony Ericsson software on your computer and and connect it to your Sony Ericsson P1i and follow the back up instruction. Hope this helps. Please rate

How do you replace a fascia on a blackberry pearl mobile


You mean the housing, right? Step number
1. Ensure your warranty is expired (because you will not have one once you take the housing apart).

2. Remove the bottom plastic piece that covers your internal antenna. Be careful with this piece because although it does not have any screws, it is still rather difficult to pry off (you may break it).

3. Take a Torx #6 driver and loosen the screws on the back corners and the 2 front screws where the plastic piece was on the bottom.

4. Pop the fake chrome sides off and you should be able to remove the keypad, lens, etc. apart.

5. Take your new house and do this in reverse!

Hope this helps,
Bill

P.S. There are all kinds of tutorials on this on youtube.

My Braun Oral-B Sonic Complete Toothbrush wont hold a charge


I had the same problem today. I use the charging plug which has the "wrench" remove the bottom screw...I was attempting to remove the battery to reset the brush. I could not get the bottom of the brush off as I did not want to use a screw driver or similar to pry it off in case I needed to return the brush.

So I was trying to pull the bottom off and my finger was on the on/off switch, as I was wiggling the bottom of the brush to try to dislodge the battery it started working.

The brush seems to have a reset button on the back but that did not do anything. The display also has moisture trapped inside it, which I am sure is not good!

Any way try this and maybe the battery will come out and I am sure that will reset the brush...if not maybe you will get lucky as I did and wiggling it will work. BTW, this is with the Oral-B Triumph Professionla Care 9000

"Not Charging" and it says I have headset plugged in


My phone did this one time, i dont really remember how i got it fixed. If you havent already, take the battery out and wipe it off and the prongs that the battery goes in to. If problem is still there, you might need a new battery.

Identify the serial number


The NEC serial number is located on the Device Rating Label (DRL) and is clearly marked. The DRL label has the UL, FCC and NEC in bold type face and is located directly below the CAUTION sticker on the bottom side of the unit.
