Innovage benfini salons professional style clippers

These puppies do not work and I cannot find a way to contact the company... it seems to vibrate but the clippers are supposed to vibrate side-to-side quickly, thus clipping the hair. Not doing it... vibrating in place instead!

    We have the same clippers. They worked for a short period of time (a few trims) and then no longer would work.

Picked up a pair of these a week ago they didn't work, took them apart to see what the problem was - right now I'm thankful I didn't electrocute myself when I first tried to use them!
Here's why - The way these clippers are designed, the bottom blade is attached to a metal arm, adjacent to a coil. When alternating current is passed though this coil, it creates an alternating magnetic induction that attracts and repels the arm, hence moving the blade. The coil is a very fine gauge copper wire. The problem with these clippers is that when the copper wire meets the power wires from the switch (a thicker gauge aluminum wire) the connection is very poorly made - on mine, it wasn't soldered, the wires were just wrapped around each other and secured with (no joke) masking tape! On mine, this connection had separated - this meant no power to the coil, and thus no movement of the blade. However, more concerning, was the fact that this wire was in very close proximity to the negative wire leading back to the power supply - leaving a very good and very real possibility for a short circuit.
If your clipper is vibrating but the blade is not moving, either the connection has come loose or the copper wire has broken. You could try to fix it, but I would recommend returning it instead.
Either way, the design and craftsmanship of these clippers is so shoddy, I'm surprised they even passed UL testing. I only bought these because I lost my old clippers and this was the only brand the store near me carried. If you are looking for a pair of clippers, avoid benfini clippers like the plague....

I have the CONAIR mini hot rollers in a small black pouch. Do I heat them up in the pouch or take them out of the pouch to heat up? They don't seem to get hot so maybe I should heat them up in

there will be operating instructions as to how to heat up the rollers. If they are not getting hot check the heat setting or return them for a refund or replacement.

What truth in anti aging creams combining

I would ask a dermatologist or some doctor

You know your not going to prevent aging at all

Those products like most products, just take your
money & make some for companies

I would suspect the hollywood & fashion folks
may benefit, until they are 40 or so, but not most

I think all TV & other ads are bogus & not necessary

If there was no money involved-- they wouldn't be there

My wife has a theory that cancer & other things would
be cured decades ago, if the Govt wanted that & the
private sector could make money.

In some cases they can find cures & make money
& they won't tell us why they choose not to,check that

How is it you can have Ebola & be cured in 3 weeks,
for the first time in the US & still developing the drugs,
until they need to pick up the pace,then in a few day's
the research was done & product on the way to Atlanta?

My soinicare toothbrush works for a few seconds the stops and starts to vibrate

It may be a battery problem if it is a couple years old. Call Sonicare to see iif it is under warranty. If not, you'll need a new handle. Changing batteries in the handle can be done but it is a real pain in the necj and requires fine soldering equipment.

Hi i have problem of bleeding gums and bad smell

Go to your dentist and see if he can diagnose a problem. It seems to me that you may have a severe cause of gum disease and possibly coupled with halitosis. But sometimes bad breath can be attributed to more serious underlying conditions so i would definitely get it checked out.

Philips salon pro ceramic AC hair dryer electric cable is damaged

I had to disassemble the PHILIPS SalonPro Ceramic HP4890 to fix the damaged power cord. With no previous experices in this models of hairdryers, it was hard to find the way to take out (slide) the main plastic cover. I had to force the front plastic ring to come up and free the main cover; the main covers slides and then the side covers can be separated (triangular recess screws) to access to the interior of hairdryer. I forced the front ring with the tip of a screwdriver so the piece was damage, but not broken, later I came up with the idea of using a nylon thread (or fishing line) to surround the ring and pull to avoid the damage. No doubt that these hairdryers are not made to be disassembled but not impossible. Hope I help.

Throw away the "Intel Motherboard" -- it offers no hope for your self-medication.

Since the "over-the-counter" medications are not working for you, it's time to seek professional help, either a walk-in medical-clinic, or your family doctor, or your HMO.
