To change, remove two screws on back and remove back cover. Remove plastic clip that is in the way of removing batteries. For easier replacement, it is suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries rather than unsoldering them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can then solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs

mcdevito75 here, There are 2 versions of batteries in Norelco shavers 1 system is where the batteries are soldered to a circuit board in which case you"d have to replace the shaver or find an appliance repair shop in your area, The 2nd is where you can replace the batteries your self but, you;ll need a set od torx screwdrivers available at any auto parts store, refer to Norelco online at Norelco.com for Battery replacement. Look for these torx screws on the back cover or by lifting the shaver head .
To change batteries, you will need to remove the two screws on the back to take off the back cover. You will then have access to th batteries.
Batteries are soldered to the circuit board. You can unsolder to remove but I would suggest that you carefully break the tabs off of the old batteries. This will leave the old battery tabs connected to the circuit board. You can then just solder the new batteries to the old tabs. This way you dont have to solder irectly to the circuit board.

Remove the bottom screw. Next, the on/off slide switch has to be lifted off carefully with a small flat screw driver. Its kept in place with a small spring steel clamp. After you've removed it lift off the steel clamp and remove the slide mechanism by carefully twisting it out of position. Once that's done it will twist open easily.
Replacing the batteries is not an easy job. You need to have a special Torx screwdriver to undo the screws.
The batteries are soldered onto the Control Board (it's unfortunately not just a case of cracking open the case and putting in batteries in an instant)
It may be worth speaking to your local Philips Service Center (refer to www.philips.com)
Your shaver should also be a Mains shaver - if you plug it in and it works full power immediately you've got a workaround. I usually recommend if you're replacing a shaver to spend a little more $$'s to get one that is mains and rechargeable so that when the batteries die, the shaver is still useable.
