Repairing Charging cord on Braun shaver cord

no--simply because there are live wire connections to the transformer that people will touch and then seek compensation for that carelessness
best if you junk it and simply buy a new charger

My toshiko trimmer is not getting charged, even after charging for 6 hrs it works hardly for 5 seconds and stops.what should i do?

mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the batteries won"t take a charge anymore. Refer to the Toshiko website at for battery replacement, however at times the batteries cannot be replaced as they are attached to a circuit board and, you"d need to replace the shaver.

the razor is warranted for 2 years if you want to contact Braun for replacement. You can try to tap the razor with the palm of your hand after taking off the shaver top and blades. Sometimes this will help dislodge anything that is keeping the shaver from making good contact inside razor.
Just don't beat it against anything hard.

Braun 7526 not charging the + light wont turn on? how can i fix this?

In your case, it's hard to know exactly what might be wrong without more information. Was the shaver perfectly fine and then all of the sudden won't turn on? Or was the shaver working for shorter and shorter periods over time and then just quit? Was it exposed to undue heat, such as left in a car or in a place that wasn't air conditioned in the hot summer?

Although the batteries in these shavers are fairly robust, if fully discharged and not used for a long while, it might be that they've got a "low level memory" and will need replacing. If you are handy, you could disassemble the shaver and replace the batteries. They are NiMh AA flat top batteries that you can buy on websites like If you're handing with soldering, you can replace them yourself. If you're unsure about that, you can buy the batteries along with the circuit board as a complete unit that drops right into place. sells these.

Another thing is that if the shaver was dropped, there's a chance that a metal connector part has come loose and so the shaver won't function. Taking it apart, you can see if this is the case.

The Braun 7000 series are rather old at this point, so sending it off for repair is kind of out of the question, as the costs involved would be more than if you bought another shaver. If you're not wanting to spend the big $$ on the new 9000 series shavers, find a new old stock 8000 series shaver (they are better made than the 7000 series). You can search on "that auction site" and you'll find quite a few Braun 8000 (or 360) series shavers available for sale.
