Question about Norelco Advantage 5615 X Electric Shaver

1 Answer

Doesn't hold a charge or cut very well anymore

I've had my advantage for maybe 10 years. I have never replaced the heads or oiled anything. I just take the head apart and clean it periodically. About a year ago, I started having trouble getting it to cut. Now I need to go over my face again with a straight razor some days. Should I replace the heads? Then a few months ago I noticed it was having trouble maintaining a charge for more than a couple of days. Now I'm lucky if it holds a charge for more than a day. I keep it plugged in all the time now.

Heads for your model are no longer available. Shaver will not hold a charge because batteries need replaced. Batteries can be replaced but soldering is required. If you have cleaned it well and it does not cut, I suggest getting a new shaver.

SOURCE: I dropped the razor and the removable head section

The head assembly (the part that flips up) for your model 7775X shaver si comprised of three components; the heads, the head holder and the retainer. These are always sold seperately and you can find them available at shaveroutlet.com. See links below.

SOURCE: Arcitec razor 1050X will not cut whiskers

You are certainly not th first person who hasn't been happy with the Arcitec model. If it never worked well for you from the beginning, there is nothing that will make it work now. It's a shame that you've waited past the 45 day return period.
Your old shaver, 6885XL, was a "Quadra" model. These were a popular model type that is now discontinued. If you still have it, it may be able to be repaired. If you would like to replace it with another Quadr model, you will find one at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

This model is virtually identical to your 6885XL except that it is a newer version

Most likely, only the batteries need to be changed but it is possible that you have caused further damage due to leaving it plugged in continuously and the batteries may hae become corroded or leaked.

I have two Mecablitz 60 CT batteries. They are about 10 years old and have not been charged since March, 2004. Should I dispose of them or can they be repaired for a reasonable cost?


The couple of dryfit batteries I've looked at have been shot. I don't know how old they were. Take a decent modern battery charger (the ones at WallMart are good enough) that will handle 6 volt and AGM batteries. Clean the contacts and jury rig a way to connect the charger to the battery terminals. If the charger doesn't register anything, it's likely the batteries have died. They will actually completely dry out inside, becoming inert. I've used $20 AGM batteries from Batteries Plus and they seem to work fine (though you either need to make a battery adaptor, or cut out the side of the battery pack to get them to fit.

take one of the front speakers out and pull out the head unit and unplug a set of audio wires(front right, front left ect.) and hook it up directly from the radio to the speaker there for bypassing all the cars wires. If it works then there's a problem with the car's wiring(maybe an inline amp). If it doesn't work, then try a known good speaker from somewhere else(home stereo speaker for example) and connect it to the radio, if the speaker works, your radio is fine and there may be a problem with the speakers. If it doesn't work then you have a problem with the head unit.

My camera will not hold a battery chard, it last


How old is your camera already? Electronic gadgets powered by lithium ion batteries dies over time. if you had your camera and battery for over quite some time now say like a year or so, maybe the cells were drained dead and uncapable of holding electrical charge anymore. If that is the case you might consider replacing your camera battery with a fresh one.
