Question about Homedics SBM 300H Therapist Select Shiatsu Plus Massaging Cushion SBM300
The blue light on the power button flahes on and off
Give it a good 'knock' on the back (hard surface). You might hear a clink sound. I think it's when a cog gets out of line. My chair is fine now. You'll notice that the rollers start moving back to the off setting. So if it goes off and they are in the middle or top then it's stuck and needs a thwack!

I had the same problem with mine. I got it new & it wouldnt do anything when selecting the mode, it just made a click sound thats it.
I came on here & found where someone said to bang or smack the back of it a couple times & presto the rollers starded doing there thing, so I would recomend this 1st to anyone having a stuck roller or a unit that dosnt do anything after selecting the mode you want.
Its like an old 30's Ford you just gotta beat on it a bit to get it fired up.

We had the same problem with the flashing power button and it wouldn't do anything else except make noise
I unzipped the back which wasn't that easy because they tied all the zipper heads together I had to cut the threads
When I got it open I saw that a piece of foam had ripped off and gotten stuck in between the massage assembly and the lower contacts once I remove that it worked fine

I had the same issue with the blinking red light on the power LED button for my Homedics 3D Shiatsu Plus massage chair. I used a standard kitchen spoon edge to unzip the back reverse zipper and exposed the internal workings. Then I proceeded to remove the three phillips screws covering the electrical circuit board box. I re-seated all of the electrical connectors and the unit functioned properly. P.S. You should always unplug the power cord before performing any steps mentioned above. This will prevent any electrical shock or damage to you or the unit. Be safe!

Sometimes all kind of electronic products can have problems because of oxidation /or/ moisture after a while , but not direct after buy if some attributes are new then it can have a problem with their timing on gears but also with bad mounted or just bad type of microswitches , or a dirty mode-selectswitch or 1 broken tooth or the worm axle broken on a gear things or solderings that where not good mounted on electrical circuits, only to be shure open the whole equipment so you can see and measure ,find and repair the problem, if you be able to do, but if its a new product and repair is not addressed, no doubt immediately go for another model or brand. or go for money refund thats almost the best remedie
Much kind of shiatsutools can be bought as commercial trash.

My back massager quit working after several years of soothing back rubs. After reading the suggestions here, I tried smacking it a few times to no avail then decided to really "whack" it, after all, I had nothing to loose since it was already broken. I placed it on a throw rug, so as not to damage my floor, and literally slammed the back into the rug a couple of times, plugged it in and voila! My back and I both thank you for this fix.

I took mine apart and removed the white gear rack that the center contraption uses to move it up and down the back. I then moved the whole contraption down to the bottom and popped the gear rack back in and it allowed it to work again.. but it only goes up to the top and will not come back down. I am thinking the problem has something to do with the electric switch that tells it to reverse.
