Who’d’ve thunk a toothbrush had so much in it. Is that a microprocessor and a serial comms port I see??
Got mine apart in no time at all. Checked the battery voltage (3.8V so that’s OK). The mode LEDs all light up, but the on switch doesn’t turn it on. It was quite wet inside though, probably damaged some of the delicate electronic wizardry. Not a great O-ring seal.
Thanks to ifixit for prompting me and helping me to have a go though.
Luckily I have a pro standard heat gun. Set to 150oC and gentle blow, the glue releases enough to slide a swiss army knife blade around the edges; the old screen cracks as it comes away .. but it was cracked anyway.
The problem then is fixing the new screen ..it comes pre-glued with strong contact adhesive and there is also glue on the old frame; as soon as it touches, it's stuck. I got mine very slightly off centre and when I tried to push it into place the new screen cracked.
Back to square 1. Worth another £27 for another go? Not sure.
!&&* if this is a 7/10 for repairability, I'm glad I wasn't trying to mend a Microsoft Surface pro!!
