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.

To open model 8985 you will first need to gently pry off the 'cap' on the bottom that surrounds the hole where the cord plugs in. Once removed the side grips will pull off revealing 4 screws. Remove screws to take off back cover and access insides. Inner parts simply lift out.
If replacement parts are required, you will find all components for this model at shaveroutlet.com

Most likely, the switch mechanism is broken inside and will need to be replaced. This part comes with the outer housing of the shaver and is available at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

While holding the neck, pull up hard on the charging piece with the blue button.... You will not break it, it will go right back in after...
DO NOT try to remove the whole neck, just the button piece will come up, an inch or two (NOT OUT COMPLETLY) The wire will only allow you to pull it up 1"-2" so dont try to remove it....
Then look inside and you can see a spring, it's not attached to anything it's just resting in a hole. Pull it out and then push the top charging piece back down till it clicks in...
Now it will stay down on its own... I had the same problem and this work around solved it.
