Is your Philips Sonicare Toothbrush not charging? Use these possible causes and solutions to try and solve this charging issue yourself.
Handle is not fully charged
Place your handle on the charger. If you see the battery indicator light (below the modes) blinking, or if you hear a beep, it means that your toothbrush is charging. Fully charge your Philips Sonicare Toothbrush for 24 hours.
If the flashing light turns off at some point during charging, this is normal.
Exception: The DailyClean 1100 model does NOT have a battery light. The handle will beep twice when placed on the charger to indicate it is charging. You will not see a charging light. The code on the bottom of these models will start with an HX34.
Not using the original charger
Make sure that you use the original charger that came with your Philips Sonicare Toothbrush. The charger that came with your toothbrush may not be compatible with another Philips Sonicare Toothbrush. The DiamondClean series requires different glass chargers. Although the chargers may look the same, they are not compatible.
Outlet is not working
Try another appliance on the same outlet. If that appliance is also not working, the issue might be at the outlet. Try a different outlet to fully charge your Philips Sonicare Toothbrush. You might need to reset a GFCI outlet. If none of these solutions solved the issue, please contact us for further assistance.
Metal surfaces or other chargers may interfere with your charger. Make sure that the charger is not placed on a metal surface or near other chargers. Place the charger in a different position and try again.
For glass chargers or wireless pad chargers: Make sure that bottom of your toothbrush is touching the center of the charging glass or on the charging pad.
For Toothbrush handles compatible with the Sonicare App
Your toothbrush gets software updates when connected to the app. This happens through firmware updates. Some of these updates improve charging capability.
