All trimmers of this type-
Just put the tip underwater and it will come back on!
Don't know why, I just know it works. Thank you

Worked only three times and stopped working. After reading reviews on other sites I see this is a common problem with this unit. I will search for another brand.

I had the same experience as another user -- it suddenly stopped working. I tried fresh batteries also. Likewise I did not have the receipt so can't bring back. Won't buy another Phillips Norelco product again.

Used it about a month and it suddenly stopped working. Used a fresh battery that my tester showed was full power. Simply won't run now. The on-off switch is hard to use. I lost the receipt, so even though it is less than 45 days old, I have no recourse but to throw it away. If you need a nose trimmer, keep shopping!

Rated 4 out of 5 by John1942 Good product; note the importance of cleaning it
As happened to others, my trimmer suddenly wouldn't turn on after I had used it only a few times, even with a new battery. Fortunately I read the advice here to soak the blade end in warm soapy water for a couple of minutes, because that restored its functionality – even with the original battery!
I found it takes a while to get used to the unique cutting action and figure out how to make it do what you want, but then it works, at least for me, just fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hanzelsaysphilipsnomore Waste of material, money and time
For me the absolute last Philips product ever! Same bad quality as the rest of their products, an insult to the buyers of Philips products.

I have used this trimmer for 2 months and found it to be efficient and well designed for the purpose. However, like many others here mine stopped working. I replaced with new batteries but nothing...not reliable...avoid purchasing this product
