Braun electronic toothbrush

I have 3 Braun electronic tyoothbrushes that do not work. They will no longer recharge no matter how long they sit in the charger base/stand. I have thoroughly cleaned them, tried rotating each of them in the different chargers etc. I don' t see any way to open the base of the handle to see what's wrong and I don't know if there's a battery in there that needs changing. I can't find anyone who knows how to fix them. I bought another new one but am worried this one will have the same problem. They are expensive and I would like to know what I'm doing wrong or are these things just designed to self distruct? Help!

    Thank you so much for the information about my electronic toothbrush. I had no idea that I should remove the toothbrush from the charger when it was recharged. I have been leaving it there all the time. I'll bet a lot of other folks out there are doing the same thing. I hope they see this and save themselves from having to buy a new one! I will try to pry it apart and replace the battery even if it ruins it. I can't use it this way anyway.

Make sure you keep the receipts as you are entitled to a full refund if the product fails within a reasonable length of time.

Yes they are designed to self-distruct in as much as the battery will lose it's ability to store charge. This happens if you leave it on charge for longer than is necessary to recharge it fully.

To prevent this from happening, make sure it is fully discharged before recharging. There should be instructions in it for the time needed for a full charge - usually around 4-6 hours for an AA.

Because electric toothbrushes are used in a wet environment, they are usually solvent welded together. If they can be prised apart, you may find a standard "tagged" battery to replace, but the chances of doing this without distruction are small.

Braun series 3 no longer holds a charge. what can I do?

It is not that young anymore. The rechargeable battery is (almost?) dead. It is almost impossible to replace it. I once tried it, took me more than a day yo put everything together and still it never was as before.
I have bought a new Braun (799) and I'm convinced this one will live longer. The rechargeable battery in this one, you can shave one hour before you need to recharge it. It lasts a week with me, or sometimes even longer, before I have to charge it again.

Perhaps you just use the shaver with the power cord, like we used to do for 20 years, and start saving for a new one?

Electric rechargeable braun toothbrush 500

I had the same problem at the beginning of the year. I think i had bought 3 electric tooth brushes and all seemed to cave in within a couple of weeks. My friend recommended going to Macy's to buy one, which I did and it is still going strong. Maybe you charged it for a very long period of time and it overheat the system circuit? I'm not sure but I would recommend getting a new toothbrush.

My braun toothbrush will not charge it is the 5. in a year. I am very fed up with Braun Oral B. Why is it not charging. Bought this one 5 weeks ago.

Have you left it to charge for a long period of time? Maybe it overheated the power source? If you cant get it to work I would suggest buying at Macy's. They seem pretty reliable and have good warranty's for these sort of things.

I have purchased a Braun proffessional care electric toothbrush and cannot charge it. I have tried three different plug adapters. I have changed the toothbrush at Boots 3 times. I have tried to charge it...

Your electrical socket may be wrongly wired, with polarity mixed up. Try another socket. Also, some electric toothbrushes need to be "off" to successfully charge. Maybe the flasing red light for 10 seconds is telling you the toothbrush is "on" and not accepting charge.

My Braun electric toothbrush suddenly started by itself a couple of nights ago; it continued to turn itself on when I pressed the button to stop it, and finally stopped when I put it in the charger which...

A. the stopping when in charger is normal. (have one myself)
B. the sudden starting could be signs of a short-circuit (possibly caused by electronic metal-fatigue)

Our Philips Sonicare 5500 toothbrush recently stopped working completely. It will not charge no matter how long it sits in the charger. It is completely dead. Since it doesn't work at all I don't know...

Could be either. If you make a coil out of single insulated copper wire that sits over the charger post, you should detect an AC voltage across it if the charger is working, assuming it is the wire free type charging system.
Try about 20 turns for a volt or so.

The braun 5510 shaver.. rechargeable or not

If working properly, model 5510 will work either from the internal rechargeable batteries or directly from the cord. If your shaver no longer recharges, it needs to have the rechargeable batteries replaced.

Braun shaver model 5501 won't turn on anymore.

You probably need to replace the rechargeable battery which dies after a few years (no longer can be recharged) like all rechargeables .
