Well if it's not charging at all and you are not getting any lights, then you could have one of two issues. Either you have a bad power cord or PCB board. If it's just not holding a charge then you can replace the Batteries.

Braun 8585 shaver, charges fine, cleaning cycle acting strange where it thinks the razor is clean, but it is not. When new it cleaned at some level every time put in the cleaning base. Now it very...


The problem is the base, not the shaver. Most likely, the circuit board inside the base has gotten wet and is damaged. If this is the case, it will need to be replaced. You will find a replacement at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Unable to charge the shaver. The charging unit is plugged in, but it doesn't seem to be able to charge the shaver.


The cleaning base is the problem. It probably got wet inside and the circuitry is damaged. This is almost always why these go bad. You dont have to replace it to use your shaver as you now know that you can charge the shaver directly from the cord.
If you want the convenience of the cleaning station, you will need to replace it. You can find a new one at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Braun 7526 not charging the + light wont turn on? how can i fix this?


In your case, it's hard to know exactly what might be wrong without more information. Was the shaver perfectly fine and then all of the sudden won't turn on? Or was the shaver working for shorter and shorter periods over time and then just quit? Was it exposed to undue heat, such as left in a car or in a place that wasn't air conditioned in the hot summer?

Although the batteries in these shavers are fairly robust, if fully discharged and not used for a long while, it might be that they've got a "low level memory" and will need replacing. If you are handy, you could disassemble the shaver and replace the batteries. They are NiMh AA flat top batteries that you can buy on websites like onlybatteries.com. If you're handing with soldering, you can replace them yourself. If you're unsure about that, you can buy the batteries along with the circuit board as a complete unit that drops right into place. Shaveroutlet.com sells these.

Another thing is that if the shaver was dropped, there's a chance that a metal connector part has come loose and so the shaver won't function. Taking it apart, you can see if this is the case.

The Braun 7000 series are rather old at this point, so sending it off for repair is kind of out of the question, as the costs involved would be more than if you bought another shaver. If you're not wanting to spend the big $$ on the new 9000 series shavers, find a new old stock 8000 series shaver (they are better made than the 7000 series). You can search on "that auction site" and you'll find quite a few Braun 8000 (or 360) series shavers available for sale.

I just need to know where I can get new batteries for my braun syncro 7505. The batteries don't have any markings telling the volts or milliamps. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could help me with...


Yes, these are NiMH AA 1.2V flat top batteries. Replacements can be found on some battery websites (like onlybatteries.com). I'd get the 2200mAh rated ones, as they'll hold a longer charge than the 1650mAh ones. You will need two of them (the shaver has a 2.4V motor). This works for most Braun shaver models from 6000 to 8000.
