SOURCE: braun 7526 shaver switch
Managed to fix it - actually was a 7680. Only do this if you:
1. have a small screwdriver set
2. are handy putting little delicate plastic pieces and springs together again
3. are prepared to face the possibility that you might break the shaver entirely
4. you are out of warranty so you don't care if you invalidate it
THE PROBLEM is caused by a small flat metal assembly that acts as a spring to hold the blue button in place. That is held by 4 small glue posts. The glue breaks down, the flat spring falls out of place and the blue button is no long in the right place.
TO OPEN UP THE SHAVER
a. gently remove the plastic cover around the electrical socket underneath, using a small flathead screwdriver to pry it open
b. the two metallic sides of the shaver can be pulled away starting at the bottom of the shaver
c. uncrew the four screws on the underside of the shaver
d. remove cutter block, battery/lcd block (make sure you don't lose the grommet around the lcd display
e. pull the spring and little plastic latch off the underside of the switch, make sure you remember how to put it back (took me almost 20 mins to figure out how to get that back afterwards)
f. slide the switch all the way up and pull it off the slide - you might need a little gentle force and a flathead screwdriver to coax it off - be careful you don't break anything here
g. remove the trimmer from the rest of the switch
h. put the blue piece back in place (mine had fallen out), then glue the flat metal spring back in place. I smeared brush-on crazy glue on the flat surfaces to hold it in place, I would imagine a four drops of reasonably strong glue on each of the glue posts would work best. Wait for the glue to dry and achieve strength.
i. slide the trimmer back into place, then the plastic latch and spring - this is the tricky part. Make sure the switch can slide on/off in all positions properly.
j. put the display/battery & cutter block back in place. put the back of the shaver on, hold the shaver together with your fingers and test the switch works in all positions without jamming. If so put the four screws back, followed by the metallic sides followed by the plastic cover of the electrical socket.

You can try dryer power port, it's 220V, and you have to buy a adapter to replace the port on the wall accord with your Braun, or to buy a transformer (110 - 220).

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!

The trimmer is broken. This is a common problem with this model and only an authorized Braun repair center can help you with this. There is one in Evanston, IL that can accept shavers from all over the US. Their phone number is 847-869-7755
