A Sonicare is an electric toothbrush sold by the Philips company. A Sonicare uses a vibrating head that cleans teeth and gums 2. All models of the Sonicare come with the Easystart feature, where the power of the toothbrush increases gradually over your first 14 uses.
Using a Sonicare and its various features -- including resetting the system -- is not complicated. Place the Sonicare in the charger, with the bottom of the handle securely in place. It takes at least 24 hours of straight charging for it to be ready for use. Press and hold the power button between two to five seconds while the Sonicare is in the charger if you want to deactivate the Easystart feature. You will hear one beep. Depending on the Sonicare model that you have, you'll need to hold the power button a minimum of five seconds to reactivate, and listen for two beeps.
Place the Sonicare in your mouth, turn it on and begin brushing your teeth. The Smartimer feature will run the toothbrush for two minutes. Press the power button while you are using it to pause the operation. Press it again to resume and continue where you left off. Wait 30 seconds after pausing the operation, or place the Sonicare back in the charger to reset the Smartimer feature to the beginning.
Place the Sonicare in your mouth before turning it on to avoid toothpaste flying everywhere. Rinse the head of the Sonicare thoroughly after each use.

About the Author.In our latest electric toothbrush battery replacement guide we have dismantled the top-of-the-range Philips Sonicare DiamondClean model. It was a tricky toothbrush to open up but here at Ionic Industries HQ we found a damage-free way of doing it.
Read our full DiamondClean toothbrush repair guide here or leave your comments, questions and tips below. My Phillips Sonic care HX Diamond care tooth brush shows fully charged and the lights are bright, but the vibration is weak. Would this be a bad battery? Hi James, yes the battery could be failing or it could be that the screw is loose that clamps the metal shaft to the solenoid.
You can use our guide to open the handle then check that the screw is tight. I found that the electromagnets are held to the frame with two screws. These screws are allowed to slide up and down in the frame.
As the toothbrush vibrates, the screws work their way up because the electromagnet attracts to the magnet on the shaft. Once these magnets come into contact, the shaft can no longer vibrate back and forth. It is a design flaw that the electromagnet can slide up the frame. You need to loosen the 2 screws on the electromagnet one is behind the PCB and push the electromagnet back down so there is a slight gap between the top of the electromagnet and the bottom of the shaft magnet.
Then I used a little flat head and pried in between the magnet and the electromagnet and gently twisted it to give a gap, while holding apart i used my other hand to tighten the screw again. Thanks Brent! Thank you for this extremely helpful hint! Indeed I had this problem with similar a Sonicar HX Actually I had both problems: 1 screw that holds the shaft came loose 2 screw that holds the solenoids came loose. The result of 1 is that the handle makes a lot of noise but hardly any movement of the shaft.
Result of 2 is that there is no movement and only a very faint vibration sound possibly discernible only when the motor unit is taken out of the handle tube.
After completely draining the battery the brush no longer vibrates. Leds and the button seems to work. The charging light blinks when on a charger but no vibes. James, More than likely your battery is okay.
Sonicare uses what appears to be a die cast metal part that the brush mount pin is pressed into. This die cast part is connected to a formed sheet metal cage by a Phillips head screw. That metal part sometimes breaks at the point where the screw goes through it into its hex nut. When it cracks or breaks there is no longer a firm connection to the vibratory cage and you no longer have a strong vibration at the brush head.
Additionally, you may find that your Sonicare is much louder than it was! I had this exact same problem too. My sonicare fell over and then the vibrating was no longer transferring to the tooth brush head. I took the diamond clean apart and found the die cast piece was snapped where the screw goes into it. Repair worked like a charm.Buzzing sounds in the ear can be very frustrating and annoying. It can be caused by a number of things and has the power to affect every part of your life. There are a number of things that can be done to assist in dealing with having a constant buzzing sound in the ear.
Buzzing sounds in the ear are more commonly known as tinnitus.Philips sonicare diamondclean (water damaged) first time repair for a subscriber
It can be present some of the time or all of the time and has varying degrees of severity. It can also come in a variety of forms such as buzzing, ringing or roaring. Tinnitus can be permanent or temporary and may be insignificant of other conditions or it could be a symptom in an underlying medical concern.
A buzzing sound in the ear should be investigated to rule out any other issues. Buzzing sounds in the ear can occur after being exposed to loud noises, where loud noises refers to noises above a safe hearing level above about 85 decibels.
They can also occur with an earache or ear infection. As long as no permanent damage is done to the ear during these episodes, the buzzing sounds in the ears may be temporary. Buzzing sounds in the ear may also be a symptom of an underlying condition, such as migraine or Labrynthitis. Buzzing sound in the ear can also be present in noise induced hearing loss or could be caused by certain medications. Treating buzzing sounds in the ear can be as simple as avoiding triggers or as complicated as using hearing aids or machines designed to mask the noise the buzzing makes.
Many people find that listening to music or even opening a door or window to let more natural noise in is enough to mask the sound the tinnitus makes. Buzzing sounds in the ear can be treated with alternative therapies such as taking zinc or other vitamin supplements vitamin B12, thiamine, magnesium and ginkgo biloba have been suggested as being helpful.
Avoiding caffeine, sugar and alcohol may also assist in reducing the severity of the buzzing sound in the ears. Wearing ear muffs or ear plugs in a noisy environment is likely to assist as well as breathing exercises, attempting cognitive behaviour therapy counselling and avoiding loud noises.
Many sufferers of buzzing sounds in the ear have found that it is worse during times of stress, so finding ways to manage your stress is likely to help in minimizing the problem.
Other treatments that have been helpful are acupuncture, tai chi and ayurvedic medicine.Menu Menu. Search Everywhere Threads This forum This thread.

Feb 3, 2 0 10 0. There's a loud static noise coming from my soundcard whenever I play 3d games or use the mouse. I noticed the graphics card has coil whining, but this didn't use to affect the sound before the last month. It only happens with the soundcard sound, the onboard sound is fine.
Could it be the PSU? Because I think it may be malfunctioning. Dec 25, 2, 80 24, Could be the PSU or the driver of the sound card or the sound card itself did you try unplugging the sound card and replugging it?Discussion in ' Support ' started by CanyonmomDec 7, Search titles only Posted by Member: Separate names with a comma.

Tinnitus Since: I've had T for at least the past 5 years high pitched buzzing, like cicadas. But recently I have developed a low-pitched mechanical sound mainly in the right ear like a car engine idling very fast or a piece of equipment.
Sometimes it gets louder for no apparent reason.

My head also sort of feels like it's throbbing, but it's hard to tell. It's not a headache. I first began noticing it a few months ago, after I brushed my teeth with my Sonicare toothbrush which I have been using for more than 20 years with no problems. The sound lasted a little while and then went away after an hour or so.
But now it's constant. It started to be constant after I had arthroscopic surgery on my hip last month the surgery lasted only 20 minutes and I doubt there were any very loud sounds, but I haven't asked my doctor yet -- I had the same surgery on the other hip 3 years ago and this didn't happen. I noticed it after I got home from the surgery center, and it has not gone away.
Buzzing In Ear
Nothing will make it stop. Sometimes it just gets quieter. I hear it even when I'm wearing earplugs. It's the same sound that I would hear after using my Sonicare -- but now it doesn't stop.This thread has changed from a take-it-apart project to lots of advice on how to fix a Sonicare and put it back together. I hope all the great comments below help people bring their toothbrushes or lockpicks or glass etchers or whatever back to life. Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. This is the top coil, which controls vibrations to the toothbrush head. I know the head has magnets on it, but how does it work? Here are the 8 points that have to be removed from the base. The 4 in a row are the connections for the top head; the 2 under that are the battery power leads. The bottom 2 are the recharger leads. Note all the corrosion Getting all the points loose was difficult, partly because many of the leads had wires soldered to them below the circuitboard and it seemed to replenish the solder I removed.
I heat sinked with alligator clips and paper clips in the tighter spots. I tried to get it off with a toothbrush don't tell my girlfriend! Here's what it looked like And here's what the board looked like after I scraped off the corrosion. It looks like I might have damaged by overheating while trying to remove the solder, too. Beyond hope? If I cleaned it would it still work?
Here's what's under the blue capacitor?
Another note for anyone who's interested in changing the batteries: they are a standard size but they are epoxied into the base with the same stuff that holds the coils.The top button is the power button and the bottom one changes the mode. The mode button will not turn the toothbrush on so be sure that you are pressing the correct button.
You may just have a drained battery. Put your toothbrush on the charger and ideally the LED lights will turn on, showing that it is charging. If it will no longer charge, the battery must be replaced with a new one. Use this Battery Replacement guide. The shaft that connects to the toothbrush head may be broken. It will need to be replaced. Use this Shaft Replacement guide. Check to see if the charger is properly plugged into an outlet, and check to see if the outlet gives any charge. If the charger cannot charge any toothbrush, then the charger itself may be faulty.
Check to see if the charger is working by placing your toothbrush on the charger.

If the battery light on the toothbrush doesn't light up, charger will need to be replaced. Use this guide If the charger works fine, the battery on the toothbrush may be broken and will need to be replaced.
If the outlet works fine, the UV bulb in the cleaner may be broken.
Fortunately, the bulb can be easily replaced. My uv works but the toothbrush charger only makes sounds when I put the toothbrush handle on it. But the charging light never lights up and the toothbrush doesn't turn on. My new diamond clean brush has been charging for well over 24hrs and is still flashing a green light slowly Is this normal?
I was expecting a solid green light about six hours ago. Mine still lights up but won't turn on and when it's on the charger the lights light up and u can hear it charging. It randomly turns on by itself but will not turn on when I try to turn it on.
