There are 2 removable plastic plates on either side of the power entry connector> Pry these off with a knife and remove the 2 screws. Next slide the razor out of it's case. The batteries are soldered in.

Braun series 3 no longer holds a charge. what can I do?

It is not that young anymore. The rechargeable battery is (almost?) dead. It is almost impossible to replace it. I once tried it, took me more than a day yo put everything together and still it never was as before.
I have bought a new Braun (799) and I'm convinced this one will live longer. The rechargeable battery in this one, you can shave one hour before you need to recharge it. It lasts a week with me, or sometimes even longer, before I have to charge it again.

Perhaps you just use the shaver with the power cord, like we used to do for 20 years, and start saving for a new one?

How do I open my Braun 9585 Pulsesonic shaver to replace the battery??


Remove the electrical cord from the base of the shaver.

Press down and slide off the panel on the front of the shaver.

Remove the two nickel-plated batteries. Use these batteries as a guide to purchase new batteries at a hardware store or home repair store. Recycle the old batteries when finished. (Many hardware and home repair stores have battery-recycling stations.)

Put the new batteries inside the shaver and press gently to pop into place.

Place the front panel back on the shaver and plug the electrical cord into the bottom of the shaver. Connect to an electrical outlet to charge.

Where are the rechargeable batteries located and can any rechargeable battery work as a replacement?

The battery is inside the shaver body. You must remove the rubberized grip to access the screws to disassemble it. You can not use any rechargeable battery. The battery is lithiun ion. The correct battery is available at See link below

I have a Braun 5525 rechargeable razor purchased in 1996. It no longer recharges, and in the charge window displays a jagged line rather than a battery image. Is this a problem with the internal cell, and...

In that case, the circuit board in also bad. This happens when the batteries aren't changed in a timely manner. You can buy a circuit board with batteries at See link below.

To open the shaver you will need to remove the two plastic screw covers on the bottom on either side of the port where the plug fits in. Then remove the screws underneath. The outer case will then slide off the bottom. You may need to reposition the travel lock to get it all the way of. Then unsnap the black plastic back of the inner case and remove it. You can then lift out the old circuit board. Reassemble in reverse order.

You will need to replace the battery pack. Depending on when your shaver was made, it may have one of two different battery types. You will ned to look inside to see which you need before ordering.

To open, remove the two round screw covers on the bottom of the shaver. Remove screws to remove bottom of shaver. The outer case will then slide off the bottom. Push the trimmer up to be abl to take the circuit board out. BE CAREFUL not to detach trimmer oryou will not likely get it back on yourself.
Your battery(s) will be one of the two types below found at

Be sure to read the Note on the second link concerning instalation

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 own a Braun Electric Shaver Model 6525 Flex Ultra Speed. I plug it in and nothing! I am pretty sure the rechargeable battery needs replacing and I don't know how to open the razor to replace it. Also the...

if the shaver is DEAD and the green light no longer illuminates when you plug it in, the circuit board is almost certainly bad. The circuit board will burn out if you run the shaver from the batteries for a long time after the batteries have stopped charing properly.
you can purchase a new circuit board which has the batteries alrady on it. it just needs to be dropped in place inside the shaver.
you will find this part at see link below

Need to replace 5569 rechargeable batteries

If you are handy and know how to solder (and have the tools required), you can probably do the replacement yourself.

At the bottom of the razor are two plastic caps on either side of the charging port, you'll need to pry them out with a sharp pick or thin knive tip. Once removed, you can get to the screws that hold the front and rear case halfs onto the main shaver chassis where the PCB with the rechargeable battery is soldered onto the board.

Unsolder the battery and solder in the new replacement battery and put the case back together, making sure all the parts are in the correct posistion, and you're ready to recharge the shaver and start shaving again.

To find your replacement battery, try Electric Shaver Service. They also do repairs, so you might want to get an estimate if you don't want to do the repair yourself, etc. They're reliable and fast in getting shavers repaired and back to you quickly. 1-888-476-1785

Here's a link to the page with your battery on it and the toll free number to call for estimates too.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
