Question about Philips Health & Beauty
Hi, I've just fixed mine (accidentally). I took it to the repair shop and before I went there I'd left it in the car for a while with sub zero temperatures. The cold did its part on the switch which has some magnet or metal on the inside and it let go - it ain't stuck any more and it functions normally. Just PUT YOUR PHILLIPS IN THE FREEZER FOR 30 MIN and that should fix it. If you need more info e mail me on email@example.com .

This procedure worked for mine too. Dear Mr Barbari, thank you for this brilliant idea to link the spontaneous healing of your bodygroom to the low temperature storage. And thank you for posting this. I put mine in the deep-freeze at about -18C for a few hours (wrapped in a plastic bag), let it warm up by itself and yes, I could hardly believe my eyes, the switch worked again. Incidentally, when my bodygroom malfunctioned, it switched itself on all by itself, in the middle of the night. It woke up the entire family and kept buzzing for about half an hour (you can't take the battery out). Hope this does not happen again.

My model (European) had exactly the same problem as mentioned above. I took it to the repair shop, they opened it and saw in 1 minute the problem: the battery was dead. 1 of the 2 Varta V600HR batteries swelled up. Two new batteries (in the US 10,=) and the item is working as new again.
