The cap of the refill & charge station has not been placed back on the refill & charge station after the refill bottle was placed in the docking station. Make sure you turn the cap clockwise. The battery might also have a cap on its charging, you may need to completely kill it, let it run all night till dead and completely recharge it, let it charge all day or night. A new battery may be needed. This is one thing. The droplet symbol indicates a build up of residue on the sensor. { made to prevent you from buying non philips cleaner} it sounds like a GOOD cleaning will help, ive posted the philips cleaning article on the shaver.

You've turned the travel lock on - hold the power button down for about 3 seconds and it should turn off and on normally again.

SOURCE: cleaning problem

I had the same problem. I was able to take the cleaning base apart. There are two little latches on the inside that when popped off, allow the cover to come off. It does however take some massaging to remove the cover. Once this is removed, take all the parts off until you get to the electric motor in the base. My suggestion would be to see where the motor attaches to the PCB and use a DMM to measure the voltage across the motor to see where the (+) terminal is when the motor is supposed to be in use. You will notice that the voltage supplied to the motor is approx 12V. This is the same voltage that the cord supplies (DC). Cut the motor free from the board, and directly attach the power cord ends to the motor terminals to see if the motor spins. You might want to take the motor out of the base for this part. What I noticed to the be the problem is there is a fine line between the where the motor is spinning free, when it turns the gears efficiently, and when it is in too far and binds up (which is more than likely the problem you are having now). Adjust the motors position until the gears turn smoothly. Now you can reattach the motor leads to the PCB. REMEMBER to hook them up in the correct holes, otherwise your motor will pump fuild out instead of pumping it back in. If you wish to test this before fully putting it back together, you will notice that there are two posts near to motor that stick up through the PCB. Those are used to measure the amount of fluid in the container. Simply bridge these with some wire or an alegator clip so that the cleaning base will think that were is a full container of fluid.

SOURCE: Shaver will not charge or clean in the base

All you have to do is take the base apart. Turn it upside down, and there are two plastic clips on the rear portion of the base. Press them in with a key or screwdriver and wiggle the base a bit to remove the inner portion from the outer shell. Make sure you unplug the unit and remove the cleaning cartridge before doing this. Once it is apart, place a small wedge underneath the portion of the electric contact that sticks out to touch the shaver, and press the back of that portion out so that it slightly bends the contact strip and makes it stick out a little further. Then remove the wedge and put the base back together. It will work again, as the contacts can now protrude to touch the shaver and run the cleaning and charging cycle.

Bought Braun 790cc shaver. Came with the cleaning station.The cleaning station doesn't dry the shaver. Can i fix the problem myself or i have to take it to a service centre?

Doesn't it clean with an alcohol type solution? Once cleaning has finished and is no longer being pumped through the head, by the time your next shave is due the following day the residue will have evaporated from the shaving head

Red light at bottom flashes even when razor ids fully charged. What can causrethis?

When the battery is almost empty (when there are only 5 or fewer shaving minutes left), the battery symbol lights up red.

Make sure that the battery does not have a memory effect. What I suggest is taking the shaving head unit off and running the shaver till empty, then recharging. Check if the red light is still flashing.

There's also a head indicator at the bottom of some shavers.

To remind you to replace the shaving unit, the shaving unit symbol flashes (all types) and you hear a beep when you switch off the shaver (RQ1090 only). This happens at the end of 7 successive shaves to remind you to replace the shaving unit.

Without knowing what model you have it's difficult to diagnose further.

You can make sure you have a nearly empty old cart in your shaver cleaner base, and then run some rubbing alchol into shaver or even some mixed with some soap to help break down the oils in the stubble crud. If you can put some also in a spray bottle and use it to clean with a little force, that will help some.

Same here, only the hose in mine is shooting it out the opening where the shaver is cradled. I can't find where the hose is supposed to be.

The shaver head symbol means the motor isn't starting, which all the support info assumes is because the heads are too gunked up with hair and congealed moisturizer etc, so clean it. In my case it was because the motor had seized - I completely dismantled the razor and turned the cog attached to the motor spindle by hand while turning the razor on, which was enough to free it up and kickstart it - you'll need some torx screwdriver bits - remove the battery cover (it may be a bit sticky since it is wedged against a rubber seal that it may have stuck to, but it does just lift off, there's nothing to snap), remove the black plastic retainer underneath that which hides a couple of screws holding the head assembly (you may need to prise the battery up to get at them) - undo them and you should be able to pull the head assembly off and push the motor up from underneath to free the plate holding the three cogs driving the head - beneath that is a big cog attached directly to the spindle, spin that by hand while starting the razor and it should hopefully spring back into life since you'll have freed the seized spindle.
