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.

How do I get help with my Philips Sonicare toothbrush, it runs when I am not using it, how is that possible?


There is probably no fix for it, as it is not made to be repaired; if it malfunctions, you are supposed to discard it and get a new one.
However, it is likely the problem is in the switch of the toothbrush.
It may have some foreign matter inside that is causing the contacts to close when not in use, and that its why it is turning on all by itself. If you want to try something to fix it, I would get a tank of compressed air and a blower and try blowing the air into and around the off/on switch.
It might fix it, or it might destroy it.

Why is it making a loud noise after reacharging,never before


Are you sure the brush attachment is "tight" to the handle? Do you have a new brush to try? It should confirm handle is bad or it is the brush attachment "tightness" .

The problem is either a corroded circuit board or worn-out Ni-Cad batteries. Both repair solutions require soldering, but full repair is possible.

Recently my sonicare toothbrush has been turning off and on by itself. Is it trying to tell me something? Or do I have a spirit in my house that happens to have really good oral hygiene?


Hi,
I just got the same problem Sonicare model HX6932/10 .

It would turn on and off at random on its own. pushing power button didn't help,and usually aggravated it starting a new cycle of random spasms. I tried a "reset" by putting it on charger and holding the silver button for 5 seconds, and it would do some morse code "two short and one long" vibration and beap. And it wouldn't stop until i took it off the charger, but replacing it on the charge it would take up its signaling morse code..
I was able to fix the toothbrush by giving it a couple of smacks against the table. Holding it in my fist i HIT the bottom of it (the charging part) against the table several times.
So far it seems like the toothbrush is fixed. turns on and off when i push the button and no more wierd morse code when i put it in the charger. Just to be safe i did the "reset" again, and i this time i got the morse code "two short one long" vibration with the lights at the bottom flashing in unison, but when i let go of the silver button. the morse code stopped for good.
I think it is fixed. YAY.
update: its still a bit finicky but reseting helps (sometimes i hold both of the buttons and it does the trick - during the reset).
