Question about Braun Syncro 7526 Electric Shaver
One day, while using the pop up trimmer to cut my week old beard off, it just stopped working and pulled the hairs out from the root. Upon closer inspection, I noticed the blades had completely stopped moving. I'm afraid the repair would be more costly than just getting a new shaver. Can anyone help? Thanks.
There should have been a little tube of oil in the package when you bought it. the baldes dry out and then won't move. take the oil and run a small amount acrossed the blades. let it sit for a few seconds and then turn it on. once the oil lubes the blades, they should start moving again.

If the oil lubrication doesn't work, then it might be that the mechanism has broken. Does the rest of the shaver work OK? You can get away with replacing just the trimmer (along with the casing) for only $12.99 at the Shaver Outlet. Follow THIS LINK.
Hopefully you or someone you know is handy to do the repair yourself. Here's how to open the shaver:
Opening a Braun 7000 Series Shaver
1) Find a thin metal object with no sharp edges (such as a nail file). Use your thumb and pull on the bottom end cord socket part, enough to cause a gap between it and the back shell. Insert the metal object into the gap in the center of the part. THEN pry it off. If you use a regular screw driver, you will likely cause gouges in the plastic. And the best leverage is in the center.
2) The silver side parts are held on by two tabs at the top. With the bottom piece gone, the side parts swing off easily. Don't worry about keeping track of which sides the silver trim pieces go on, as they're designed to fit on only one side (you'll see the cutout for the shaver head stem is off to one side).
3) The case is held together by 4 small torq screws. Use a torq screwdriver--do not attempt to do this with anything else. Be careful to turn the screws slowly, so you don't strip them.
4) With the screws removed, the two halves of the shaver will come apart. The remaining parts can be extracted without any special tools. Keep note of how they are removed, as assembly will be the reversal of removal.
5) Note that if you are replacing the batteries (there are two of them), you will need a soldering iron to detach them from the circuit board, unless you're replacing the whole part.
6) Reassembly is pretty much what you expect--the reverse of disassembly. However, the bottom cord socket part is tricky to get put into place. Pushing straight down on this part will not get it to go in, nor any other obvious way. It's best to get the prongs inserted on one side, then while pushing in on the prongs of the opposite side, apply pressure on the top side surfaces. The part should snap right back into place.
