With a little bit of skill and patience, you can replace the rechargeable battery in your Braun shaver for less than $12.00 or so (w S&H included). I've replaced mine twice over the past 10 years (and the foil) and it's still running great.

You can order the replacement rechargeable battery online, I've used Electric Shaver Service in Nebraska for getting parts I needed.

If you want to buy a new one, try Shaver.com as they have your beloved model for $50.00

If you decide to do the battery replacement yourself, you'll have to be able to unsolder the old battery from the circuit board and resolder the new battery back onto it, once you open up the shaver.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: Braun electric shaver will not charge.

Batteries can be replaced in most Braun shavers, while leaving the current circuit board intact. Braun didn't intend for this to be done, and as such does not sell the batteries alone (they include them on the circuit board). There are some aftermarket Braun shaver parts sellers that can supply just the batteries, but they charge a rather high price. Go to a website like "onlybatteries.com" and you can get AA NiMh flat top batteries that will fit your Braun for less than half the market price.

As for disassembly, it varies depending upon your shaver. Visit "http://web.archive.org/web/20041025223715/63.230.9.155/braun/Srv_Man/SHAVER/" for the older service manuals. More modern day ones can be found by Google searching.

Of course, if you're not comfortable doing soldering, then you'll have to replace the batteries along with the circuit board. Suppliers like "shaveroutlet.com" provide these parts, as VtToolMan mentioned.

SOURCE: The braun 5510 shaver.. rechargeable or not

If working properly, model 5510 will work either from the internal rechargeable batteries or directly from the cord. If your shaver no longer recharges, it needs to have the rechargeable batteries replaced.

I guess by now you have either thrown out the shaver or found out how to take the cover off.
The secret is to remove the bottom cover plate (Cap) as described in the manual. There is a small slot at the back of the charging cord recess (see photo) that allows you to pop it off with a small, flat blade screwdriver. There are 2 screws under the cap, and 2 more at the top under the trimmer assembly, which is removed as described in the manual (the manual states there are only 3 screws holding the cover).
The batteries are AA NiMH, 1800 mAh capacity, which I hope to get at The Source (used to be Radio Shack in Canada).
When removing the batteries, make sure to carefully pry off the heat sensor which is attached to one battery with a dab of silicone (and which must be reattached later).
I have attached a few photos to show the slot in the cap, and the battery wire colours when you are reconnecting new batteries.

Hi
I have a Philips shaver (Philishave 990) can charge the batteries when it runs on AC power, not battery. Next time the power is gone and the battery re-charging it shows 2 on the display, then start it on the mains. Is it the battery is defective? Can it be replaced? Type? How can it be purchased.

Why is there no red light when it is plugged in?


You probably need to replace the rechargeable batteries. The batteries work in series with the shaver... if just one is completely no good in the battery pack, the shaver won't work. NimH batteries only last 2 to 3 years at best; older NiCd batteries far less. All rechargable batteries are made by either Matshushita (Panasonic) or Energizer (old Sanyo brand and before that the GE brand). Some mfrs build their own battery packs using rechargable batteries with TABS from these battery mfrs and wire them together end to end + to -, etc, like a flashlight (torch UK) to make the proper voltage. A Norelco brand is the same as a Phillips shaver.

Most likely, the batteries are dead and need replaced. You need two batteries and they can be found at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

How to remove rechargeable battery for norelco 7864


hi minglim, welocme to the forum!
    Replacing a Norelco Shaver Battery Things You'll Need:Torx screwdriver set Rechargeable Ni-Cd AA battery 1)Slide up the sideburns trimmer on the shaver .2)Try the various torx head screwdriver sizes to find the fit for the two screws holding the top of the back shaver cover on. Unscrew the two screws that are under the sideburns trimmer that hold the back of the shaver on. On some Norelco shavers, the back will now slide off if you apply downward pressure on the shaver's back. Other Norelco shavers have one or two torx screws on the base of the back cover on the shaver; if so, unscrew them also. Place the screws in a safe place. 3)Take the back cover off the shaver. Some shavers may have a strap fastening the battery down. Unfasten the strap if there is one. Take out the battery. 4)Replace the old battery with a new rechargeable Ni-Cd AA battery. Re-fasten the battery holding strap if there was one. 5)Replace the back shaver cover and re-screw in all the torx screws,

Norelco Quadra Action 7866XL suddenly quit working any ideas


It sounds like the rechargeable batteries in your shaver have degraded to the point that they can no longer be recharged, and as such, you shaver won't run, even with the power cord connected and plugged in.

To get the shaver working like new again, you need to replace the batteries or have it done for you. If you have the tools to desolder and resolder the rechargeable batteries, and can disassemble the shaver, you could do this yourself. However, most people find that having the shaver serviced for them is preferrable, since there could be a chance of damaging the shaver when taking it apart, etc.

If you wish to get an estimate for having the batteries replaced for you, contact www.electricshaver.com or you can call them at 1-888-476-1785

They are an authorized service and repair center for most major brands of electric shavers and typically get the repairs done in about a week, once they receive the shaver. They also sell most common replacement cutter blocks and foil screens for shavers, in case you need new ones now or in the future.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Battery won't hold its charge, could I get them replaced? Could I replace them myself? If so, with what type of battery?


Rechargeable shavers use either a NiCad or NiMd batteries.

In order to get the correct battery, you need to check your shaver model number and check the following link to see which your shaver uses.

http://www.electricshaverstore.com/search.asp?p=1&w=%5F&c=battery&t=s

You can buy it from them or find them elsewhere, if you wish.

You can do the repair yourself if you can disassemble the shaver case, which is usually held together with a couple of screws normally hidden behind plastic caps.

Then once the shaver covers are off, you can unsolder the old batteries and replace and resolder the new one in. You'll need a decent soldering iron to accomplish this.

When done, put the case back together and allow it to charge for a good 8 hours before using. It typically takes a few recharges to get the batteries able to hold a full charge, but you should be good after a week of use.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

How to replace batteriers in norelco quadra electric shaver


The rechargeable batteries are solder into the circuit board of the electric shaver. You'll have to use a soldering iron to de-solder the terminals/tabs from the PCB (printed circuit board) in order to get them out.

Then you'll need new replacement rechargeable batteries to solder back into the shaver.

You can get teh correct replacement batteries from Electric Shaver Service in Lincoln, Nebraska (if you're in the US or Canada). They even do service and repair work in about a week, if you want to have them fix your shaver for you.

Here's a link to the battery page with your shaver model's rechargeable batteries for about $15.00 (plus s&h)
