The batteries in my Panasonic ES8003 need replacing but not sure how to remove them, any help please

Posted by on

  • tommylad Nov 18, 2008

    I've had the ES8003 shaver for years and love it. However, it will no longer hold a charge, not even for one complete shave. I hate to think I have to replace the entire shaver just because the batteries are old.

My Panasonic shaver quit after several months due to a dirty switch. You can see the batteries in this video. Look at this video on how to clean the switch and look at the batteries... mine would not charge or run until I cleaned the on-off switch. You probably could replace the batteries with standard Sanyo eneloop NiMH but I have not tried ... they looked to be about the same size as those in the Panasonic and cost about $10 but I am not for sure if a standard size battery will fit. Take a look at the video that I put on YouTube. J

Love my ES8003 but the batteries last maybe 1 charge.

I called Panasonic after a fruitless search on the web for batteries and they had none.
They did refer me to Turnpike Appliances which has changed its name or been swallowed up by
smallappliances .com.

If you go to the smallappliances.com site you can search Panasonic men's shavers and find parts for the ES8003. Unfortunately, batteries aren't listed. You need to CALL (1-800-628-3911) smallappliances.com in order for them to special order (meaning you can't return them) the batteries.

Cost of the batteries with shipping is about $42(USD) to my location in California.

To access the batteries, look at the bottom of the razor, there are two very small phillips head screws that attach the base piece of the razor to the body case/internals. The base piece can only attach one way so look at it carefully before unscrewing to make sure you know which way to reattach it. A set of jeweler's screwdrivers is what you need. I actually had better luck removing the phillips head screws with a flat head screw driver...

After removing the screws the base piece should fall away. Lift the razor internals out by grabbing the body case with one hand and, with the other hand holding the foil, lift straight up and out removing the internals from the body case. Note which way the internals came out of the body case so you can put them back in correctly. Gently set the internals down flat on a towel, etc. There are some delicate electrical connections at the bottom you don't want to break. Notice that the two batteries have polarity poles of different lengths. Make sure you note which end is longer, which end is shorter and replace the batteries the same way.

After installing the new batteries, put the razor back together the opposite way you took it apart making sure the rubber seal/plastic trim piece that keeps water out (just below the foil) are seated correctly.

Charge batteries and shave away!

How do you get inside the tomtom 910 to change the battery please.Is there a maual? Cliff


There is no real manual for this, I have done it before though and have typed out the directions here for you, plus a link for the new battery if you need it:

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.

New Battery:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000WVUFUW?ie=UTF8&tag=dependascient-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000WVUFUW

1) Remove 4 screws under ends of rubber strips on back. (All screws are Torx number 6)

2) Remove back cover. Front frame around screen comes off easier now.

3) Remove 2 screws in round top circuit board. Remove 4 screws from lower circuit board. These two boards may have a glue connection. Do not worry if it separates

4) Lay back circuit boards to unplug battery. Note flat ribbon cables are fragile. The 3 wire plug is the battery. Unplug wires to battery from receptacle on circuit board.

5) Remove front screen by pressing a screwdriver against the small metal tags that follow the edge of the screen. The tabs need to be pushed in slightly to allow you to lift the screen out. It may need some leverage, but be careful not to put the screwdriver to far behind the screen as there are a couple of thin cables for the connections.

6) To remove the hard drive you may need to unscrew the vertical black tags about 2 cm long. These simply come away and are grasping the business card size silver box IE the hard drive. The rubber end caps are pressed in, pry out with small screw driver.
7) Remove battery and replace. Note the two sided sticky tape around battery. When putting more tape on, be careful you do not put to much around the right hand end as it will connect with the thin cable when you put it all back together.

9) Reverse assembly. Mine works fine now, good luck. (and so does mine! BLP)
Footnotes: I did not have a Torx #6 screwdriver nor could I buy one locally. I found a #7 mini star bit works just fine. Source: Harbor Freight item # 93316, 6 piece Mini Star Bit Set - $3 PMVN - 9/19/2009
I am not advertising but Batteryship.com included with the battery #5 & #6 torx screwdrivers, a very small philips (star), a straight screwdriver and a plastic pry tool. Whatever I paid more than another place it was worth it.

When disassembling do not remove the battery clip. Just pop out the battery from the front (experienced having to reassemble that whole thing). Also having a set of tweezers to put the electrical connections back together helped a bunch.


Thanks

How i will initialize my SIM card?Should i enter my SIM PIN number?


Hi


Remove the battery from your phone. Slide off the back cover of your phone to get to the battery. Gently lift the battery from its compartment to remove.

Insert the SIM card into your phone. Once your battery is removed, insert the SIM card into your phone. Look at the image on the phone to see how to insert the SIM card correctly. Make sure it is pushed all the way into place.

Replace the battery and turn on the phone. Replace the battery back into its compartment and replace the back cover. Turn on your Nokia 2610 phone, and it should boot up. The name of your wireless provider will appear when your phone is turned on.

Allow time for your phone to read the SIM card. Once your phone is booted up, it will say initializing. This means that it is reading your SIM card information. Once your SIM card is read, your phone will go to the home screen. Your SIM card is now activated, and you should be able to access all of your information.

Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

How is the backup battery charged and or changed


Remove top (side thumbscrews)
remove main battery cover and battery
unscrew stylus holder from back (1 screw)
unscrew black plastic inner top (4 screws)
remove top gasket
unscrew back (6 screws)
carefully remove back
CAREFULLY NOTING THE POLARITY OF THE PLUG:
carefully unplug connector from back
unscrew plastic cover over the speaker & backup battery from inside of back cover (4 screws)
replace battery w/ Digikey #P084-ND
23x2mm 3volt 30mah lithium battery ~$6 USD in 2010. aka Panasonic #VL2320/VCN
this requires you to re-solder the ex. leads to new battery*
*WARNING ASSUMES YOU ARE ABLE TO CHECK THE POLARITY AND KNOW HOW TO SOLDER SMALL ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS.
YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN HERE AND ASSUME THE RISKS THAT THIS TYPE OF GADGET HACKING ENTAILS!

(Optional - find an original replacement battery from Panasonic with the correct leads attached and just plug it in. This is much safer.)

Reverse operations and you are back in business.

Hi please do a hard reset on the BlackBerry smartphone.
1) Remove the battery cover from the back of the BlackBerry smartphone.
2) Remove the battery, and then reinsert it after a few seconds.
3) Replace the battery cover.
If the display is still not working, verify that the battery is charged by trying it in a different BlackBerry smartphone.
If the battery is working, download the latest BlackBerry Device Software and install it using the application loader tool in BlackBerry Desktop Manager.I hope this information will be helpful to you

Hi, to replace battery, you need to undo the 4 screws hold the back casing. When these are removed you can open the back, revealing the battery. There is a black plug that pushes into a white socket on the pcb, with 4 wires coming out of it that goes to the battery. Pull this plug out and the battery then comes free. Hope this helps.
