Why does my Philips Sonicare toothbrush turns on by itself?
There could be a failed seal either at the button or at the top of your toothbrush that has allowed water to go in. It’s possible that the circuit board is wet from the ruined seal causing the button contacts to go on at random times. I’ve seen this happen with my sonicare toothbrush.
If the button cannot be pressed, there may be something below the button holding it down. To fix this, remove the brush from the toothbrush. Then, remove the bottom of the casing with a flat head screwdriver. If holding the toothbrush, lights facing up, depress two prongs in either side inside of the toothbrush.
