It sounds like your batteries are no longer able to hold a charge and are in need of replacement. With all rechargeable shavers, once the batteries are incapable of holding even a minimal charge, the shaver becomes unable to be used, sometimes even wih the power cord plugged into an outlet. My Braun shavers all worked for about a year after it would no longer operate on battery power alone, then the shavers all stopped working regardless of being plugged in directly to an outlet.

As you mentioned you are still under the warranty period, I would suggest you contact the company and request warranty service for your shaver.

if you weren't under warranty, I would advise getting the replacement batteries and doing a repair yourself.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Thank you for your help. I bought a Braun, and threw that hi-priced junk out. I believe it was the best solution. Thanks again!

It sounds like maybe one of the blades is damaged and it is jamming the whole thing. Try taking apart the head assembly and then insert each head one by one turning the shaver on in between each one. This should identify if one is damaged and causing the problem

If you require new heads, you will find them at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

SOURCE: Norelco/Philips jet clean shaver cleaning bath no longer works

I have had three 1050CC shavers all with the same problem. Apparently other models have the same issue. After about a year of use, the unit reverses after dipping the shaver into the cleaning solution for a second. Two were replaced by Philips within the 2 year warranty period. I still use the 3rd one. There are several things you can try. If the cleaning solution is low this will cause the shaver to reverse and not clean. Add more cleaning solution. I have noticed that sometimes I have to add more fluid to the unit after a week of use. Sometimes it is necessary to fill the solution a little above the max fill line. Be careful though. Filling it too much above the max fill line can cause cleaning fluid to run out of the bottom after a cleaning cycle. If the above two fixes don't work, then press the clean button and after the unit reverses back up, wait about 5 or 10 minutes and press it again and it should stay down as long as there is enough cleaning solution in the unit. If you wait too long or too little to press the button, it won't work. I have noticed if I press the button immediately after it reverses the same problem occurs. Also if I wait 30 minutes before pressing the button the same problem occurs. There must be some sort of timing cycle. You may have to repeat this process a few times to get it to stay down and clean. This is the only way I can get mine to clean now. Obviously something is getting dirty or wearing out over time in the cleaning system. Since I have had 3 shavers with the same problem, I know many others have had it too. Philips must be aware of the problem. It is frustrating that they don't offer help on their own website and consumers have to band together to solve problems that they should be solving. The two year guarantee is very generous, but there is a design flaw with this product.

SOURCE: Trying to register a philips razor 7300 series

On the www.philips.com/welcome page click "Register Product", "Browse", "Personal Care", "Men's Shaving", "7000 Series", 'Go to the Second Page', 'Select either 7345XL or 7385XL'. Those two models are part of the 7300 series of razors. They may not be the exact razor, but the registration should still go through.

If the lever won't advance even when there is no film in the camera, then I would say there is a problem. (p.s. You haven't told us the make and model)

You are problable correct in thinking that the blades are clogged up. Unfortunately, you are also correct about the terrible design. The blades on Arcitec models can not be removed from the head assembly for cleaning

complaints can be made to Noreclo at 1-800-243-3050

Replacement head assembly can be purchase from shaveroutlet.com. See link below
