As an attempt to reduce obsolescence where possible here at Toothbrushfixer.co.uk we are always attempting to add further models to our supported devices list. We started out servicing only one Braun Oral-b brush and have extended our offering now to eight different Braun devices.
We have, however, received numerous requests from people with Philips Sonicare toothbrushes who are in the same boat as our customers with Braun brushes. At some point the batteries in Philips devices reach their end of life as well, so we naturally were hoping we could offer the same service we do for Braun brushes for Philips ones as well. The simple answer to this turned out to be no.
We have recently attempted to resuscitate a small number of different Philips brushes from customers who were happy to send them in on a trial basis. Philips have done quite well to ensure their brushes are constructed in a way that the chance of fixing them reliably are very slim. As we are striving to service all electric toothbrushes sent in by customers successfully we have decided not to add any Philips toothbrush to our supported devices. Our only recommendation for people who own a Philips brush which has reached the end of its life is to go for a Braun one next time.
