SOURCE: my oral b rechargeable toothbrush

The plastic connecton has a coil in it, much like how a transformer is done. If you read up on how a transformer works its pretty much the same principle as it works on Induction. There is a coil and core iron in the end of the toothbrush and in the base, this creates AC current which inturn causes induction to flow through the coils and charge the battery. And about the reason why it is not charging is probably down to the battery being flat ( happens even when new ) or there is a loose connection when it was being transported.
Hope this helps.

Keeping a clean and healthy toothbrush


Keeping your toothbrush clean can help to keep you from getting sick. You can do a few small things to help keep your toothbrush clean and help to keep yourself healthy. Many people keep their toothbrushes in containers or in a cabinet, but in reality keeping your toothbrush closed in a container helps to breed bacteria on your toothbrush. If you want to keep your toothbrush in a closed container then you should make sure that it is completely dry before storing.

Something that we never think about is washing our hands before we handle our toothbrush. Make sure to take a few second to wash your hands thoroughly before picking up your toothbrush, and then rinse off your toothbrush before you put toothpaste on.
Be sure to replace your toothbrush often and especially when necessary. According to the American Dental Association (ADA) you should replace your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months. Whenever you get sick you should replace that toothbrush right away when you get better so the bacteria doesn't stick around.

Keeping a healthy toothbrush keeps you healthy too!

Batteries don't hold charge


you will need a new battery, however, check your options, it is probably cheaper to purchase a new phone than a new battery for your old phone

Keurig vue stops brewing after a few seconds


Before you take anything apart, which I came close to doing, take a toothbrush to the metal pins/spouts. After running I don't know how many cups of vinegar and letting it sit, it still wouldn't brew more than two ounces. I was going to attempt a fix found on the internet, and I thought, what the heck -- can't hurt. So I took out a new toothbrush and brushed both pins (didn't have to remove anything) and voila! Out came some grounds in a cup of water and it brews the full amount of whatever oz. I choose. Works great, normal and I didn't have to disassemble anything.

How often should I replace the head of my electric toothbrush?


According to the Oral-B website, you should replace the head of your electric toothbrush every 3 months. There are exceptions though. For example, if you suffer from gum problems, then you should replace your toothbrush head every 4-6 months. On the other hand, if you have very healthy gums and teeth and you are using a high quality electric toothbrush, you can probably use it for few extra months (around 6 months).

I have a battery charging problem on my Gateway Solo1450 laptop. The battery is new and gave me 30 minutes of battery only run time after taht it would not charge. I set the commands (Enabled) in the BIOS...


hi, if the battery is new then you need to start looking at things like the charger. If the old battery was used for a long time, and as they have only a few months life span then this puts extra work on the charger due to the fact that when the battery is new it holds its charge and recharges fully now the problem is when the battery is old it dont hold the charge and runs flat alot quicker so this puts extra strain on the charger is its trying to charge a battery that wont charge properly as well as keeping the laptop working. This tends to cause problems with the charger due to it over heating so this is what i would look at first.

The second and less likely cause might be that due to the old battery over heating due to it not holding a charge this may have caused some components or solder on the circuit board to fail this isnt very likely but does happen from time to time.

What i would do first is take your laptop and charger into a small computer repair shop and just say to them you dont want any work doing but is their any chance you could tell me if my charger is working or not, play it like if i need a new charger youll buy it from them or if they say the board is damaged just say to them that you will bring it back when you have the money to pay for it. This way your not obliged to leave them with the laptop and you will then find out the fault for free. At least if they say its the charger then you could then get it off auction site instead of the computer shop.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance.

Try this first though use the laptop untill the battery is totally flat i mean flat so much that it wont even light the laptop up then without using the laptop plug the charger in and then leave it to charge for say 12 to 16 hours so that its had chance to do a full charge from flat this then may solve your problem.

Also doing this process every month will ensure you get maximum life out of your battery

I cannot get my casio exilim 7.2 pixel camera to power up I have tried charging the battery, but the red light shows for a minute then it goes off When i insert the battery in the camera, it powers up...


If the light blinks while charging then it means that you have a faulty battery and it needs to be replaced. Usually they only last if you're lucky 12 months so I would suggest replacement of the battery and that should solve your problem. :)
