The power screw is the correct way to adjust the problem you describe. If you have attempted to adjust it as instructed in the user manual and have not had satisfactory results, there may be a problem with the clippers. Most Wahl clippers have a 1 year or longer warranty. You can call Wahl for warranty service at 1-800-334-4627
1st remove the blade. Once the blade is off grab the blade drive between your fingers, if it moves side to side without any spring pressure than the drive arm is loose from the armature. If that is tight, than the armature may be loose and lifted out of alignment. There are two screws on the right hand side of the case which hold the armature. If the screw is phillips head it is standard thread, if it is torx head it is reverse thread. loosen these screws and press down firmly on the armature. The top of the armature should be even with the top of the motor coil. If the drive lever as mentioned earlier is seperating from the armature then this should be warranty repaired by the manufacturer.
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.
