Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have a Philips 5425 Philishave. It has worked wonderfully well for years. At the moment it is not cutting well. The blade retainer is not connecting well, and the heads are spinning freely, with a screeching sound being made. I would appreciate some advice on how to get it back to working order. Thanks, Frey.

    I encountered exactly the same problem. After many years I wanted to clean it well with the same results mentioned. No replacement part available except for the blades which arent the problem. The only solution: Buy a new one. Now I got a rechargeable Philishave which is very handy, but still it is painful buying a new one although te old one worked well...

My new sonicare toothbrush has gone all wobbly.... on the bottom the following numbers to help you identify the model, etc: 080416 HX6910 the vibrating pin onto which the brush attaches is no longer...


Your suggestion worked! I took a small common screwdriver, carefully pried on the bottom plate on each side, a little at a time, and the whole motor assembly with O-ring, came out in one piece. There it was, a small phillips screw, in this sort of universal joint assembly at the top. I tightened it up, careful, its pretty small, won't stand too much torque, but it's tight now, and I think you saved me $100 or so, mine was getting so sloppy I expected it to fall apart any day, now it feels as tight as new.
Thanks so much!

We have a trusted Philips Azur Precise 4310 iron. Worked fine for the 2-3 years we have had it - then, suddenly, nothing! Power light on handle has gone out and the iron has completely stopped working...


It looks like a problem with the power cord. Try splicing the cord with a new one near the base of the iron and see if this helps. If not, it could indicate some connection problem inside the iron. In this case, it would be cheaper (and wiser) to simply go in for a new iron box..

I have a bosch jigsaw I purchased at auction.I can't figure out how to change the blade


There are two types of "quick release" mechanisms on the new Bosch jigsaws, the twist-top handle found on 1587 models, and the lower-lever found on the 1590's. 
The "twist-top" is the black cap on the 1587 at the front of the saw. You must first put the orbiting control ( on the side of the saw ) to position number III. This releases pressure on the blade. Then you lift the black cap, rotate three or more turns counter-clockwise ( as seen from the top ) to release the locking mechanism. If the saw blade is cool, you can carefully remove it with a single one-quarter turn using your fingers. If the blade is still hot from sawing, use a pair of pliers, but be gentle. Hot blades can bend easily and jam.
The 1590 models are quite a bit easier. You still want to put the orbit control to position III to release pressure. But the quick-release is a simple flick of the black switch on the front face of the saw. 
I still have my 30 year old Bosch with the screw-in blade holder. It still works and the saw still runs smooth as a sewing machine. If you are doing a lot of production work where you need to change blades frequently, the Bosch 1590 is the clear choice for quality and value. In thirty years of using Bosch tools, I have only had to do normal maintenance and had only one minor failure, which was the blade changing mechanism on the 1587 model. I broke it by tightening too far. SO, if you have a 1587 model, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN. As it is, this non-warrantee repair only cost $16 bucks and took two days.
It should go without saying, but just to be safe I'll say it anyway... OBVIOUSLY, you should UNPLUG the tool when you are changing blades. Good luck!

Philishave speed xl wont charge


Check to see if the battery is dead. It won't charge if the battery is dead. Sounds silly because that's what a charger is for right?

Or, it could be the charger itself. Is it getting voltage to the terminals? Maybe it's the shavers terminals not making good contact to be charged.

Have not found any easy way of replacing batteries at moment, still working on that one. Good luck Tony B

Nino 500 and WinCE 3.0?


You can't update windows on Nino. Nino has non-flash rom so one way to change the windows is to change the rom-chip. A few years ago the rom chips were avable from Philips until they had discontinued Ninos in '99.
