If you still have it I have one I dropped. The body is still fine, and the batteries charge. A piece broke off inside the cutting blades. Let me know if I can help. Thank You, Jeff

I have a philishave 905 and the original batteries were 600mAh 1.2V Ni-Cd. Once (6 years ago) they were replaced with 700mAh Ni-Cd without any problem. Recently I had the batteries replaced again in a...


Warning ! NiCd and NiMh are two different technologies that require different type of charger !

Never replace NiCd with NiMh because a charger designed to charge only NiCd won't be able to detect end of charge of NiMh.

There is a risk of overheating and destruction of batteries and worse, destruction of the appliance !

(At the opposite, a charger that can charge NiMh can charge NiCd))

My toshiko trimmer is not getting charged, even after charging for 6 hrs it works hardly for 5 seconds and stops.what should i do?

mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the batteries won"t take a charge anymore. Refer to the Toshiko website at for battery replacement, however at times the batteries cannot be replaced as they are attached to a circuit board and, you"d need to replace the shaver.

Norelco shaver sudden power loss

I hope you are observing the following:- Recharging only when the batteries are almost completely empty. Continuously recharging or continuously using as a corded razor will reduce life of batteries Charge only when the indicator in charge meter starts blinking. It appears that your batteries are gone. Hope you have replaced the batteries with the new ones. Use a good brand

Shaver was running slow and then died. Replaced

Your original symptoms sure sound like dying batteries. Brushes can wear out. Check if it runs better if you change the orientation of the shaver. Does holding it upside down make it work better or worse? If the speed changes, its probably the brushes. You can buy new brushes, but the Norelco repair place will probably give you a hard time since they want to repair it for you so you have to insist. I have made brushes for the shaver by filing down brushes from some other motor, but this is messy and doesn't always work.

I have a Braun 360 and I haven?t had a problem with it for over 2 years, now all of a sudden the cleaning station is making continuous clicking sounds and it will not register, clean or charge the shaver....

I can't suggest anything for cleaning station but for direct connection of shaver please follow the possible solution below.
Your Rechargeable batteries (built in) could have been dead..and needs to be replaced.Normally they die in 2 to 3 years depending on the frequency of usage.
But before taking it to a repair shop ,make sure you check the power cord / adapter as well,
because sometimes one of the lead cracks at the point that it attaches to shaver for charging,which the power cord/adapter needs to be replaced.You can ask one of your friend to borrow its adapter for testing purposes.
If you wish you can describe the problem more details than I may suggest something else.

Not holding charge

It is likely that your rechargable batteries are no longer capable of taking a charge and have become degraded to the point they need to be replaced.

Without a model number, I can't provide you with the disassembly steps to open up the shaver and the correct replacement batteries.

Once the rechargable batteries have degraded to the point that they cannot hold even a minimal charge, it could become possible that the shaver won't operate even with the electric power cord connected directly with a power outlet. Hence, it is a good idea to replace the batteries soon to also prevent damage that can occur to the internal electronics by leaking batteries

You can go to and look for the batteries for your model number. You can also contact them directly to get an estimate for having them do the repair service, if you wish.

Hope you find this info Very Helpful and best regards!

Battery won't hold its charge, could I get them replaced? Could I replace them myself? If so, with what type of battery?

Rechargeable shavers use either a NiCad or NiMd batteries.

In order to get the correct battery, you need to check your shaver model number and check the following link to see which your shaver uses.

You can buy it from them or find them elsewhere, if you wish.

You can do the repair yourself if you can disassemble the shaver case, which is usually held together with a couple of screws normally hidden behind plastic caps.

Then once the shaver covers are off, you can unsolder the old batteries and replace and resolder the new one in. You'll need a decent soldering iron to accomplish this.

When done, put the case back together and allow it to charge for a good 8 hours before using. It typically takes a few recharges to get the batteries able to hold a full charge, but you should be good after a week of use.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
