The Remington ES-1000 was probably the best slot-head shaver ever made by Remington. I cannot believe that the market demand was so low as to prompt a cancellation of production. I believe that the production run was limited to about 4 years or so. I have 8 of these shavers and keep a couple old Remington slot heads around as well. The ES-1000 was not perfect. The batteries were way too small and stressed so battery life was poor.You could not buy individual blades as you could with past Remington slot-head units.Also, the edge of the head was too exposed and sharp and when used for body shaving would tend to cut the skin.Slot-head shavers are superior for body shaving and for skin that is suseptible to shaving bumps.They are also great for young men that are prone to ingrown hairs.My guess is that the Norelco 3 head has taken it's place. Those shavers actually use 3 small slot heads. Rumor has it that shavers.com is trying to have a new slot head manufactured in Asia.

• Thoroughly clean the razor cutter area
• Pull off (straight out) cutters and lay aside
• Release spring clips and remove
• Gently pry up and remove rubber boot
• Pry case open starting at cutter end and bending up toward connector end
• Thoroughly clean razor interior area (blow out)
• Pull up motor and remove black oscillator bars
• Pry up the circuit board by releasing the cutter-end catch using a small tool to push it in while prying gently up on the cutter-end of the board and bending up
• Clean the board and turn it over
• Note battery polarity and mark on board if not present already
• Unsolder the battery tabs using unsolder braid. Be careful not to short the electrical circuitry as the batteries are electrically LIVE at this point.
• Remove the old batteries and fully clean off the circuit board solder-pads using unsolder braid.
• Mark the installation date on the new batteries in a place where it will be visible
• Install new batteries, making sure the polarity is correct (cut the tabs to a correct length if they extend too far through the circuit board)
• Solder the battery tabs being careful not to short the electrical circuitry as the batteries are electrically LIVE at this point
• Re-install the circuit board and other parts following the procedure in the reverse order (be sure to put a soft rubber pad over the motor to hold it firmly in place when the upper case half is snapped in place)
• Before installing the metal retaining clips be sure that the rubber boot is fully free and not pinched between the case halves
• Finalize the assembly by reinstalling the cutters and screen

Most likely, the rechargeable batteries need replaced. This model does not run directly from the cord. You can change them yourself if you can do some light soldering.
To replace them, you will need to remove screws on the back to take off the back cover. You can then remove the old batteries.
Batteries can be purchased at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

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.
