Question about Braun Pulsonic Rechargeable Cordless Men's Razor - Silver
My shaver will not charge. When I plug it in to charge, the shaver is completely dead. The charging light does not come on. I have checked the fuse for the plug, etc, and the problem is not there.
I ran into this problem several months ago. I just shook it and forced it until it retracted and never thought anything of it. The trimmer recently broke (still functioned but extended beyond its normal point) and I took it apart. I realized that there were a few broken parts inside (possibly because of my earlier experience). So I removed the few parts and now it still extends to far, but otherwise functions ok if I'm careful.
I would recommend taking yours apart and seeing if you can find any parts floating around which may be causing it to not retract all the way. It may be broken beyond complete repair, but you may be able to get a little more use out of it.
If nothing else, you can order a new casing for it from here
Here are the instructions for taking it apart:
The shaver itself is easy to take apart. The part on the bottom(opposite from the shaver mechanism) pops off with just a slight bit ofprying. Be careful not to break the pins though. Once you have thatoff, the narrow sides pop off pretty easily. Then you can remove the 4screws opening up the interior.
Be careful at this pointbecause there are a lot of parts that may fall out. (Perhaps take apicture as soon as you open it so you know where everything was whenyou opened it). At this point you can try your hand at fixing it (minehad 3 parts broken and loose inside), or you can simply switch it withthe new casing (Which i'm going to do when I get it). Good Luck!

Batteries can be replaced in most Braun shavers, while leaving the
current circuit board intact. Braun didn't intend for this to be done,
and as such does not sell the batteries alone (they include them on the
circuit board). There are some aftermarket Braun shaver parts sellers
that can supply just the batteries, but they charge a rather high
price. Go to a website like "onlybatteries.com" and you can get AA
NiMh flat top batteries that will fit your Braun for less than half the
As for disassembly, it varies depending upon your shaver. Visit "http://web.archive.org/web/20041025223715/22.214.171.124/braun/Srv_Man/SHAVER/" for the older service manuals. More modern day ones can be found by Google searching.
Of course, if you're not comfortable doing soldering, then you'll have to replace the batteries along with the circuit board. Suppliers like "shaveroutlet.com" provide these parts, as VtToolMan mentioned.

Your batteries are starting to degrade, but the good news is they're still holding a charge for a week, so you really don't need to rush to replace them at this point.
The flickering of the charged indicator is normal, as the shaver is still plugged in and the batteries are fully charged. The flickering is due to the batteries chemicals breaking down, and as such, the charge cycle keeps "topping" them off while it's still plugged in.
When you finally aren't able to get a decent amount of cordless operation and run times from your shaver, then you'll want to get them replaced, whether you decide to do that yourself or have it done by a professional service center, is up to you.
Here's a reference for your future use. www.electricshaver.com carries replacement (factory OEM) batteries for most brands of shavers and they also will provide the repair/replacement service for you, should you decide you don't want to do it yourself. You can also give them a call at 1-888-476-1785 and request a price quote, etc.
Anyway, your shaver is working fine and all you need to do is make sure you're not letting the shaver stay plugged in and charging constantly for more than a day, since any "extra" chargind isn't doing anything except keeping the batteries at a constant state of charge. Heat is a byproduct of charging and discharging any battery and as such, you want to allow for a cool down period before recharging them.
I tend to use my shaver until it is almost completely discharged before recharging it. By doing this, you can get the longest working life out of your batteries before you'll have to replace them.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Testimonial: "very helpful"
My Pulsonic Razor that I received for Christmas will not run on battery, or with the plug supplied. I have tried just about everything I can think of. Is there a way to solve this problem? I do not have a receipt as it was a gift and am quite certain it would cost me a small fortune in order to fix it at a Braun Service centre.
Please help me if you can. TY
