Question about Panasonic ES 8077S Electric Shaver
Retainer that holds shave head on shaver broke off behind button on left side.
SOURCE: wet/dry Panasonic shaver stopped
My model is almost the same as your model ...
Problem: Model ES7037CMB - Over the past month the Panasonic shaver would turn on with 3-4 tries, but now will not turn on at all – the on-off switch must be bad after only 7 months of wet use. Before sending in I found this diagram:
Disassembly: Remove bottom Phillips screw & end cap, pop off each plastic side with fingernails (reinstall them from top 1st), remove 4 screws, remove 2 clips, take top off. Remove battery case and the on-off little, white plastic lever fell out. Slide off the white plastic/metal on-off slider & clean contacts with knife … my bottom contact was black & top was clean.
Assembly: Reinstall on-off slider (white plastic with metal contacts) by sliding back in grooves -- hardest part - place the on-off plastic lever on the battery back unit – I tried to put it on the case and could not get it to stay on. Slide the battery pack back in with the plug prongs in the holes in the end being careful not to drop the on-off lever. Test shaver. Stuff battery wires inside case – screw 4 screws and add 2 clips on, then final screw in the end after cap placed on. Easy once I knew how to put the on-off lever on the battery side – that was tricky. Total time was about 1 hour – next time it will be about 15 minutes. Works great! jgg 12-27-08. Think I will use it dry from now own since it had a lot of whiskers inside of it and maybe wash only the head as needed with baby shampoo.

Any way, the HQ5 head must fit in the 3 heads but will leave 2 of your HQ 5 heads free. But still the game can go on, wel u have to adjust some things in life.

Philips suggests changing the heads every 12 months. The indicator is instructing you that it is time to change them. You will find replacements for model 1060x at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

A 12 months old wet and dry shaver must have a defective battery after such long period of use.
The battery cell is weak and unable to hold charge.
You sure need a battery replacement. It's not necessary you get a Panasonic battery replacement as long as its the same size, shape and watt. You can get another battery from any electronics accessories store within your vicinity.
All you need do is disassemble the shaver, remove the old battery, use it as a sample for the replacement so that you can get the same battery size, shape etc..
To disassemble the shaver, first, take the shaver outside and use a can of air to clean the shaver. Repeat this at various stages of the dis-assembly, being careful not to lose any parts!
Remove the two screws at the bottom (the end that plugs in to the charger) of the shaver, and remove the bottom cover. Keep track of the two small washers, and a small flat plastic piece, about 10mm square that fits inside of the cover - these keep the unit waterproof.
Open the shaver head, and remove the blade assembly from the white plastic vibrating arm by pulling on it - it will pop off. Undo the two screws on either side of the arm, keeping track of the two small washers under the plate - these will tend to stay in place and stick to the metal plate or the plastic underneath the plate.
Press on the mechanism from the end you first opened, and notice a gap opening up where at the other end, just below the head latch button and hinge. Gently pry open this crack, and work the case apart. Keep the large O-ring that seals the case, and make a note of its orientation so that you can assemble it the same way.
This has been too easy, I know, so there is one headache. I have not figured out how to remove the sliding trimmer assembly. Because of this, I found it was necessary to pry the large black U-shaped plastic clamp from the vibrating arm at the same time you pull the innards out of the case
By now you should have access to the battery, and proceed for the battery replacement.
I hope you understand the above.
