Repairing Sonicare Elite Pro
My Sonicare Elite pro after a little less than 2 years stopped working. To ascertain where the problem is I opened it up following the operator’s instruction of Philips which tells you how to permanently open it to dispose the Ni-Cd batteries. I found that there is only one battery (in other models I saw that there are 2 units, apparently serial wired) and the voltage across the battery terminal is 1,3-1,15 V. The green blinking LEDS seem to work all right when the charger is applied and the full set of lit LED should indicate that the battery is charged. But the vibrator does not work. It would help to know which is the operating voltage of the battery as it seems a bit too fat to be an ordinary AA 1,5 V battery.
Any help is appreciated.
