Braun Pulsonic 9565 Electric shaver.

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.

SOURCE: Braun Pulsonic Razor - Pop up trimmer will not retract entirely

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!

SOURCE: Braun electric shaver will not charge.

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 market price.

As for disassembly, it varies depending upon your shaver. Visit "http://web.archive.org/web/20041025223715/63.230.9.155/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.

SOURCE: Braun 5614 rechargeable cordless shaver light flickers

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!

SOURCE: braun 7570 shaver wont charge but wont run on mains lead

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

Try plugging the cord directly into the shaver. If it charges this way, your clean and charge unit is bad. A replacement can be ordered from the link below

You state that is works here so other than the charging not showing I don't see a real problem here. If it drains totally and then does not recharge it is one of two things. Bad battery or bad charger. Replace the charging station first.

If the shaver is completely dead and the charging lights no longer illuminate when plugged in, the circuit board will need changed. If they still illuminate when plugged in, you can just change the batteries.

You will find the batteries and also the circuit board with batteries at shaveroutlet.com. You can order which you require. See links below

This shaver model was very popular back in the 1990's. They aren't meant to last more than 10 years with regular use. They can be reconditioned, as replacement parts are available, but it's probably not worth the trouble. You've put your shaver to good use--it's time for a new one. You can offer up your shaver on eBay for parts as-is and actually make a little $$ (some people can make use of the parts, for those who repair these things). I'd recommend getting an 8000 series model. They are very well made and still quite a lot cheaper than the 9000 (Pulsonic) series.

My Braun shaver 8585 has died. Foil, cable, box, Clean and charge unit as new. Which Braun shaver replaces Braun 8585 and can utilise good pieces?


If I understand correctly, the shaver is dead but all other components are in good condition. If this is the case, you should consider ordering a replacement lower unit. See shaveroutlet.com link below

http://shaveroutlet.com/braun-8585-activator-lower-unit-p-364.html

Newer models made by Braun do not use all the same parts as your shaver so this would be a good way to go

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 Shaver 360 Complete #8985


the 110 plugin goes into a circuit which changes AC to DC for charging the internal NiCad batteries. If there is NO charge whatsoever in the batteries, the shaver will not work. If you have any electronics background a simple test with a VOM will determine if the bridge rectifier is putting out any DC.[you must disassemble the shaver] If you have no experience on circuits take it to a repair location.
