What are the chances of successful toothbrush repair?

    Is there a way to estimate a chance of your wireless product (toothbrush, shaver, etc.) to be successfully repaired before spending money on spares parts (battery, motor, PCB) or repair service? Of course there is. Let me help you with that. There are two major causes for toothbrush (shaver, etc.) premature failure: PCB damage by acid leaking from the battery and PCB damage by moisture (water) getting in through cracks in seals and housing. Follow the below links to get an idea about whether your product is likely to be successfully repaired.

    • Click HERE and HERE to see images of a PCB that had been affected by acid but still has a good chance of repair.
    • Click HERE¬†and HERE to see images of a PCB that had received a substantial damage by acid. Chance of repair is 50/50.
    • Click HERE to see an image of a PCB that had been completely ruined by acid an cannot be repaired.
    • Click HERE and HERE to see images of a PCB that had been affected by water mixed with paste (white buildup). This product still has a good chance of repair, however, the buildup will need to be¬†carefully removed from all solder points and specially from all microchips connectors before attempting repair.
    • Click HERE and HERE to see images of a PCB that had been affected by water mixed with paste (white buildup) and has a 50/50 chance of successful repair. Once again, all buildup must be removed before attempting repair.

    Please keep in mind that the above pictures and comments provided for reference only. We have seeing instances where products seemingly beyond any hope of restoration were successfully repaired. Likewise, we also witnessed a number of cases where “perfect candidates” (meaning no signs of water or acid damage or any other visually identified issues) could not be repaired simply because they stopped working because of various other reasons.

    Feel free to browse our products or see our repair videos. Best of luck with fixing that broken product of yours!
