Hi,unfortunately there is no way to reset this counter,even after replacing battery it still stands there.Braun somehow prohibits user and/or unauthorized repair men to do such action.If you visit the following link there is a official statement by Braun states that" total number of shaves (cannot be reset)."
I am sorry,this is the fact.

    Hi,even I said it is not possible to reset it before ,now I found the exact solution that I have tested myself and it did reset the works ....
    Okay,please use the shaver till its batteries are exhausted and leave it "power on" at least 48 hours to let the built in memory battery (beside main battery) is exhausted as well.
    After 48 hours there will be no more power either in main battery or memory battery for LCD display / memory ..And recharge it ",Bingo" your counter resets itself and it shows "0" usage..
    Take care..if you have any problem please do not hesitate to ask in details.

Vintage braun 5563 electric razor 1970's i've lost the owners manual and would like to know the maintenance requirements, how long to charge battery, can the razor be used for wet shaving, etc?

I am not a razor consultant, but I would think something that old would not be wise to wet shave with:( did you try Braun 5563/manual in a google search? good luck!

Bought a Braun series 3 razor (#340 wet and dry). It hardly shaves the whiskers but it really messes my skin up. ( I was using a Norelco which did a pretty good job) I think there is something wrong...

You should be able to run your finger over the foil mesh on the Braun shaver to feel if there are any rough spots causing the problem you describe. If there is damage you may also be able to see it.

It could also be that the Braun shaver simply does not agree with your skin type. There are many people who are sensitive to different kinds of shaving methods. Foil shavers like Braun may not be the type of shaver for you

Canon MP130 - warning keeps coming up that the 'waste ink absorber is nearly full. What do I need to do to correct this, thanks for your help.

Hi Teasel850,

There is an internal counter that prompts this message. There is software to reset the counter called MPTool. But why complicate things when it can be reset manually using the following steps.

Reset Canon Pixma MP130 Printer
  1. Turn on the printer.
  2. Press the MENU key, and then SCAN, COPY and SCAN again - entered the service mode.
  3. Select NVRAM ACCESS further OK.
  4. Select SET ABS-M LEVEL and set value equal to zero.
  5. Select SET ABS-R LEVEL (if any) and is set to zero.
  6. Turn off the printer POWER button.
Best regards

Making a funny noise and not shaving well

8585 shaver gave higher tone and stopped cutting especially after a few days growth, even with new cutter and foil. Cutter wasn't pressing against the foil properly due to a bit of wear on the spring clip holding the cutter pin. Fixed with about 1cm of cigarette paper moistened and rolled into a 1-2mm ball. Stuffed that into cutter pin hole and rammed home with the cutter pin. Take the foil off and wiggle the cutter - if its feels loose, this might help, though the battery might just be getting old.

Is the Braun Activator8595 a good shaver for extra sensitive skin

The Braun foil shavers are well designed and I find they work well for sensitive skin if you prepare properly. Make sure you apply a hot towel to your face followed by a shaving conditioner. When applying the shaver, press lightly. Don't be afraid to go over the same areas several times to get most of the whiskers. Once you do this for about a week, your skin should begin to adapt to the sensation of electric shaving. You'll then be able to use the shaver more aggressively and get a thorough shave.

Not shaving close enough.

This problem is usually cause by a worn out shaving head (foil and cutters). Braun suggests that you change these every 12-18 months for best performance. You will find replacements at for your model 4501 Braun shaver. See link below.

It is also possible that your shaver is running too slowly due to an old battery if you've never replaced it. If you require a new battery, it can also be ordered from See link below.

To change the battery you will need to be able to do a little soldering. Open the shaver by removing the two round screw covers on the bottom of the shaver and then the screws underneath. You will also need to remove the foil and cutters and then the swivel frame which is attached by two tiny screws. Once removed, you will be able to open the shaver from the bottom and seperate the front and back. Remove the circuit board to easily get to the battery.
Note: The tabs on this type battery will work for most applications however they may be slightly different than some original equipment. For these instances, it is sometimes suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries rather that removing them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can them solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs

Shaver started making a much louder buzzing sound, no longer shaves as well and now hurts a bit to use. Can this be fixed?

Hello Robert, It sounds like the foil screen might have been damaged and is causing poor shaving performance. Typically, a screen will get small holes or tears in it after providing good service for some years, however, these very thin screen foils, can get damaged other ways too.

The best way to restore the best shaving performance is to replace both the foil screen AND the cutter head block (cutter head) as it could be possible that the cutter blades have become damaged or nicked and have caused the foil screen to become damaged, as a result.

I would contact and see if you can purchase a new set of the cutter block head and the screen foil for your particular Braun shaver model. As the Braun 360 is a tradename used on a couple of different model numbers, you really need the four (4) digit model number in order to locate the correct replacement parts.

Here's a link to their page with the various Braun replacement cutter blocks and foil screens. You might find your model number amoung them, otherwise, you can also give them a call at 1-888-476-1785 and ask them to assist you with selecting the proper replacement parts.

As you are no doubt aware, replacing the cutter head and foil screen is the best and simplest way to restore an electric shaver to a like new shaving condition and much less expensive than replacing the entire shaver.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
