I have a HX6930 the was beeping twice then once when charging and lower button was flaky.
I used this guide to disassemble the HX6930. I used the iSesame pry tool - it can’t be beat. I went slowly around the outside edge of the base 2-3 times prying very slightly at each move. The end cap came out nicely for such an old toothbrush.
I found water inside all over. A “High 5” for Phillips in durability. It appears the top seal is defective. I’m not sure on a solution for this as it is below the press fit top plastic retaining ring. Probably going to use some water proof plumbers grease on reassemble.
I’ve ordered some replacement batteries and will install a new one when it arrives. The hardest part of all was applying pressure on the Li-ion cell and heating the solder points to finally release the battery. Probably easier to just cut the tabs and remove the cell and then clean up the solder holes. I used the copper mesh to clean up the solder.
anyone else think that Apple is moving to make its computers more like its mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, etc.) inside and completely unrepairable and unupgradable?
For me, the whole Apple experience has been buying a well built machine with a rock solid operating system that was VERY expensive compared to competitors but with the ability to enhance and upgrade was very reasonable - not a throw-away computer it seems.
A recent ugly experience made this clear when my MB Pro 2016 with Touch Bar machine went black. No power nothingl. I tried everything first then to the genius bar. I had TimeMachine backups on High Sierra. I get to the Genius bar, the guy wants to take it to the back room (anyone else feel like that sounds like a sauna line besides me?). He comes out and says they’ll need to send it in for repair (I knew that).
MB Pro back a few days later - ‘new logic board’ inside. I spent ** 4 days ** restoring -> 2016 software (Sierra) on it clean due to fixed 2 TB SSD! Prior, simple disk copy worked.
My Mac Mini late 2014 1.4GHz i5 with 4 GB RAM sluggish at best as OS X El Capitan (10.11.6) averages 6-8 GB RAM routinely. The OSX is constantly moving active memory from RAM to HD (the base 5400 rpm HGST 25K500-500 HD).
Booting was 15-30 seconds and from application to application.
Shame on Apple!
I decided to swap out the HD with an SSD. I decided on a Samsung EVO 1 TB SSD. I followed this EXCELLENT guide and replaced the HD with the SSD without much of a problem except removing the HD SATA cable was difficult and I broke the cable. Ordered a replacement. Now, my Mac Mini Late 2014 boots in about 5 seconds and literally flies from application to application like my old Mini did or probably slightly faster.
Bottom line, Apple should have NEVER put the 5400 rpm HGST HD in a machine with such low memory as the operating system typically uses 6-7 GB RAM.
So get rid of the HD for a SSD! Don’t waste your money with the PCIe slot either (yes the connector is there) but more $$ than a sata SSD!
