Question about Dyson V6 Absolute Bagless Cordless Hand Vac
I emptied the canister and when i put it all back together no power would get to any of the power tools. i wonder if it has anything to do with the connection prone or not because it still has plenty of suction.

I had the same problem, from right out of the box. Now that I just threw mine out, I see this site that indicates there's a fix for it:
And search for other sites isung "dyson grinding" or similar.
Since I was an early adopter (had one as soon as they came stateside), I did not have the benefit of countless others having the same problem, I just attributed it to a junky design, since so much else about this vacuum was poorly designed, like the seals, hoses, etc.
Give them a call, and good luck! I might rescue mine from the heap and do the same.

With the DC14 in its upright position, and looking from the back, there is an access hatch just to the right and bottom of the dust canister. Remove this and check for any obstruction. With the hatch still removed, tilt the handle back (as if vacuuming a floor), and you should spot that the mechanism in to which the access hatch fits changes over from one hole to another. This is how suction is transfreered from the telescopic arm to the brush bar when the unit is taken out of the upright position.
With the handle tilted back, the hole you can see is one end of a flexible pipe that leads to the brush bar. Check for any blockage and/or foriegn objects. If there is no obvious problem, you'll need to check the other end of the pipe. You can do this by removing the toe plate on the bottom of the brush bar area. The plate is held by 3 or 4 half turn fasterners - a 5 pence piece is ideal for undoing these.
If still no joy, the only other thing it might be is that the brush bar isnt spinning - this isnt actually lack of suction, but without brush rotation any upright hoover is far less effieicnt at picking up bits from the floor. Brushes not spinning on a DC14 is quiet a difficult thing to fix on a DC14 as there are two separate rubber belts, one of which is hidden under a plastic cover. There is also a clutch mechanism between the belts that can cause problems some times.

It sounds like the motor is functioning properly and the filters are fine. Check very thoroughly for clogs in the parts after the canister (down where the brush is, etc.)
