Question about Homedics Health & Beauty

1 Answer

Recently I bought the BK 900 massager from thrift store. It did'nt come with adapter. So i plugged a 12V adapter which I had. But it did'nt work. Infact the hand control got hot and there was little burning smell from the control. So I unplugged the adapter and I ordered the PP-ADPEM3 adapter from Homedics for $10. Even with this recommended new adapter, the massager is not working. Did I screw up initially by using a wrong adapter. If so can you tell me a fix for this please? Is there a way to diagonize the problem with the massager. Your feedback will be appreciated.Thanks

SOURCE: 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

I have a Sharp VL-L270U that I bought at a thrift store. I dont have a battery charger and I've tried plugging it into a 12v lead but nothing ever happened. I want to get this thing on and running.

You will be needing a charger that is particularly suited to your device.
There are, out there, hundreds of different chargers, each is different.
Having said that, even if you get the right one, the unit you bought may not work, as it may have failed.
Some thrift stores have a bucket of chargers, but to start, look with a magnifying glass at your unit to see if it will tell you exactly and precisely what amps, ohms, volts, etc. you will need.
Remember too, the tiny plug can be reversed with the positive and negative interchanged, so you must get that right also.
God bless your efforts.,

You can get another one at any computer store, but even much less expensive is at any local thrift or "Goodwill" store that should have lots and lots of used computer stuff very cheap.

Need power supply -- what are compatible power supplies?

Take a look where the power-adapter connects into the speakers. Also, look on the "brick" of the power-adapter.

Look for 'AC' or 'DC'.
Look for '6V' or '9V' or '12V' or '18V'.
Look for the Amperage rating.
If 'DC', look for the small pictograms, either:
* ring-positive-post-negative, or,
* ring-negative-post-positive

With that information, check Thrift Stores, and then check the "big-box" computer stores.

I need to find a source for D-Link Part Number JTA3020A 5V-2A

almost all d-link routers use the same power adapter. All that's important is that it is 5v DC output, and at least 2.0A output current. So you should be able to pull an adapter from another router.

you don't actually need a REAL d-link adapter either, any adapter that matches those specs and fits the plug will work. Just beware, if you plug one in that doesn't match, you'll damage the device. I"ve found adapters like these at the local thrift store all the time.

Ac adapter

Hi I am an Indian too !

Of course you can use the 220v AC adapter, it will not harm your massager but may only underperform [slow speed, slow vibrations etc]

And be aware that the foreign products you receive, and have adapters rated at 120v are bound to get busted if you use them here in India, don't use them at first place.
Rather, buy an adapter rated for 220-240v for the same output voltage as that of 120v
