Toy not working? Try these quick tips to solve common problems - let's get this show back on the road!


Try new batteries

Try your toy with new batteries and it might spring into life. Always remove batteries when your toy is not in use. Some toys will drain batteries if you leave them in while not in use, so always take batteries out when you put your toy away.


Have you put in enough
of the right kind of batteries?

Different toys take different numbers and different types of batteries. Double-check the instructions that come with your toy - either on the packaging or in an enclosed leaflet. The 'specifications' section of product page on our website will also tell you which batteries.


Have you put the
batteries in the right way?

If your toy doesn't work it could be because you've put the batteries in the wrong way round. Double-check the instructions and make sure you've put the batteries in the right way round.


Check the battery

Some vibrators, especially bullets, are supplied with the batteries already inserted. These often have a small paper disc in the battery compartment that needs to be removed before you can turn the vibrator on.


Are the batteries
sealed in plastic?

The batteries included with some toys are wrapped in a clear plastic seal. The batteries will not work while the seal is in place, so you'll need to carefully remove it.


Is your toy

Make sure you have charged your toy for the recommended time. Double-check the instructions - a rechargeable toy normally has a light that flashes during charging and a solid light to indicate that it is fully charged.


Don't use rechargeable

It's best to use normal batteries rather than rechargeable ones. Rechargeable batteries can be slightly bigger and may cause issues when securing the battery compartment. We do not recommend the use of rechargeable batteries in any of our toys.


Is the battery cap
screwed on tightly?

With many twist-base toys, you must ensure the base covering the batteries has been tightened as much as possible - sometimes an extra twist can make the toy work. Sometimes on older toys the springs can get compressed so they don't maintain contact well with the battery - a gentle tug on the


My toy smells funny!

Most rubber, PVC or vinyl dildos tend to smell very strongly due to the nature of the materials and the manufacturing process. Unfortunately, there is no quick solution to removing this smell. However, it should gradually fade if washed regularly with warm water and Lovehoney Fresh Toy Cleaner.
