I have this issue as well.

The tear down guide doesn't go into the mechanical portion at the head of the brush.

I have mine open and there is an opening on the back inside that allows me to see some of the gears and they look functional. I can't figure out how to get in further to find the malfunction. Specifically, on mine, the metal 'pin' only vibrates. It is missing the up-and-down motion I recall from before.

I guess I can't add pics to the question as I'm not the op?

Most likely one of the gears is stripped that turns the brush shaft. You would need to take the brush apart to get a better idea. Here is a tear-down guide to inside the brush. Open it up and post some pictures of the inside if you need more help.
