SOURCE: Norelco shaver 6866XL won't charge, light glowsred

The battery is probably one with multiple cells and one (or more) of them has shorted preventing the total from reaching a voltage that appears as fully charged.
If the cells are Ni-Cads, this is a common problem with them and when a battery-operated item of mine fails, I replace those older types with NiMH cells if the battery compartment can accept them.
I have 'restored' countless NiCads over the years by 'zapping' them with a fairly high current for a second or two; voltage isn't important as long as it is in excess of 2-3 volts but the source should have a few amps capacity.
This type of cell grows 'whiskers' that will cause them to short completely or develop a path that causes them to self-discharge faster than normal.

SOURCE: Norelco/Philips jet clean shaver cleaning bath no longer works

I have had three 1050CC shavers all with the same problem. Apparently other models have the same issue. After about a year of use, the unit reverses after dipping the shaver into the cleaning solution for a second. Two were replaced by Philips within the 2 year warranty period. I still use the 3rd one. There are several things you can try. If the cleaning solution is low this will cause the shaver to reverse and not clean. Add more cleaning solution. I have noticed that sometimes I have to add more fluid to the unit after a week of use. Sometimes it is necessary to fill the solution a little above the max fill line. Be careful though. Filling it too much above the max fill line can cause cleaning fluid to run out of the bottom after a cleaning cycle. If the above two fixes don't work, then press the clean button and after the unit reverses back up, wait about 5 or 10 minutes and press it again and it should stay down as long as there is enough cleaning solution in the unit. If you wait too long or too little to press the button, it won't work. I have noticed if I press the button immediately after it reverses the same problem occurs. Also if I wait 30 minutes before pressing the button the same problem occurs. There must be some sort of timing cycle. You may have to repeat this process a few times to get it to stay down and clean. This is the only way I can get mine to clean now. Obviously something is getting dirty or wearing out over time in the cleaning system. Since I have had 3 shavers with the same problem, I know many others have had it too. Philips must be aware of the problem. It is frustrating that they don't offer help on their own website and consumers have to band together to solve problems that they should be solving. The two year guarantee is very generous, but there is a design flaw with this product.

What does a battery with a lighting bolt on it mean


It is telling you to charge it or that it IS charging.

Not charging


The chances are that the battery has failed. The age of the device would indicate that the battery is probably NiCd - these batteries have a memory effect that means after a while the battery thinks that "fully Discharged" would be the state that is the most usual for the charger to be used most often. You will need to open the device to get the battery out to find the part number. You will then be able to order on from an online retailer.

Brand new out of the box Volitation 9053 wont take a charge. Charger never goes green to indicate full charge. At most I get 5-10 seconds of weak spin and then the red light on the ECS board flashes.\r\n ...


A 7.4 volt battery is two 3.7 volt Li-Po batteries in series. Battery has
expired, there is no saving it anymore in fact dangerous just having
around. Li-Po batteries are very sensitive to over charging and also
to being under charged, usually the device that's being operated by
this battery has a safety catch called a BLC (battery limit circut).
So battery won't drop below the safe voltage of about 20% of full
charge.
FYI Don't even mess with this battery anymore, replace it. When Li-Po
batteries blow up they have a VERY high temperature flash and can easily set a garage, house,ect on fire in a split second.
Have fun and be safe.
