    My Sonicare toothbrush is not charging

    Published on 14 July 2023
    If your toothbrush is not charging, the troubleshooting tips below may help you find a solution.

    We recommend that you follow the steps in the order listed below. In between steps, check to see if the issue is resolved before moving to the next. 
    The chargers for all Sonicare toothbrushes are different and not compatible with other Sonicare models. We recommend charging the toothbrush by using the original charger that came with your toothbrush.

    Does your toothbrush not charge when it is plugged in? Your plug socket might not work. Try using a different plug socket to charge it.

    Try checking if your charging adapter or cord is damaged. If you notice any damage to your adapter or cord, stop using it immediately. Purchase a replacement in our online store.



    If you use a charging stand, pad or glass, ensure that your toothbrush is placed centrally on the charger. The toothbrush will release two short beeps or the battery light indicator will light up, confirming that the toothbrush is placed on the charger correctly.

    Ensure that the charger is not placed on a metal surface or near other chargers, as this may cause interference while charging.
    If none of these tips help, your toothbrush may be damaged internally. We recommend that you request a repair or exchange for your toothbrush.
