    Here is the link to the operation & repair of the shaver. Apparently they know of this problem, becasuue the instructions say to drain the battery evey six months and recharge.



    I say it should have a reminder built-in, for the money I paid for it.

In the PDF instructions it describes how to remove the batteries. The instructions fail to mention that there is a spit of yellow glue that is holding one of the batteries to the curcuit board with a death grip. Undoubtedly, you will have to use a knife, not in the glue, but on the skin of the battery. Pull on the teather wire, and slice the battery skin around the glue.

If after removing the batteries, and you are not thouroughly discusted with the manufacturer, then purchase a couple of AA Ni-cad batteries solder the positive of one battery to the negative of the other. then solder the free positive end to the red wire, and then the blue wire to the free negative end. Then try to remember how to reverse the process and put it back together, without leaving any parts out. ;-)

There is a risk of injury by overheating the battery when soldering. That should be avoidable if you remember how to drop solder. Just like its name, it involves having the wire securely held in place. Then hold solder iron over the wire/battery end. Then take some rosin-core solder and apply the solder to the hot tip. Then make sure the newly melted solder lands on the contact. Keep in place until it cools and holds the wire to the battery.

If you think this is better than writing to Remington complaining that they did not make it easier and use contacts, instead of solder, so we can simply pop in a new set of batteries. Or maybe look at other manufacturers, and see if they are any better.

Need a power cord for Relaxzen massage cushion model 60-2907P04


This is not just a "power cord", it a 12V 1A wall wart. You can probably get a suitable substitute on ebay, but you'll have to figure out what the size of the adapter plug is to mate with the Relaxzen cushion. See the link for a pdf showing this

Philips salon pro ceramic AC hair dryer electric cable is damaged


I had to disassemble the PHILIPS SalonPro Ceramic HP4890 to fix the damaged power cord. With no previous experices in this models of hairdryers, it was hard to find the way to take out (slide) the main plastic cover. I had to force the front plastic ring to come up and free the main cover; the main covers slides and then the side covers can be separated (triangular recess screws) to access to the interior of hairdryer. I forced the front ring with the tip of a screwdriver so the piece was damage, but not broken, later I came up with the idea of using a nylon thread (or fishing line) to surround the ring and pull to avoid the damage. No doubt that these hairdryers are not made to be disassembled but not impossible. Hope I help.
