How to disassemble case

When charger is plugged into base of trimmer, blue light only comes on intermittenly when trimmer is shaken. Something sounds loose inside. Is there a screw under the black "MAG" decal? It is off warranty.

    Turns out a wire came loose from the battery. I was able to solder it back on and it is still working fine. And, yes, there is a screw under the MAG decal to disassemble the case. Just peel it off and glue it back on when done.

Where can I get a new charger for my Philips bikini prefect

I can't find any images of what the charger is like, but if it is like a Braun Trimmer, the charger is part of the wall plug, in which case it may have a specially shaped plug that goes into the trimmer. In such cases, only Phillips will be able to supply a replacement. Click on Support or contact pages.

    On the wahl 8779 does the blue charge light go out when full charged

    Yes, the blue light goes out when fully charged. It should come on for at least a few seconds when it is returned to the charger base.

    My t860 will not hold a charge, and now I can't get it to work while plugged into the charger, can the battery be replaced?

    The battery can be replaced. There is a single AA NiCd battery soldered into the main circuit board.
    To open up the trimmer, first take the silver screw out (located near the lower back side). Then pull the trim guard off the top (should come off easily). Next, the rubber-like ring used for adjusting the trim height needs to be pulled off -- this can be difficult but just work your way around and ease it off. Finally, the metal clip on the end of the trimming head needs to be removed, and the plasic case can then be popped open, revealing the circuit board.

    If you're not comfortable soldering or disassembling it, it can likely be done at a local Batteries Plus store.

    You have to disassemble the entire case to get to the motherboard. Otherwise the user serviceable parts all have small access panels on the bottom. Did you try removing the battery? Toshibas can be picky at times. Remove the battery and let it sit for a few minutes. Then put it back in and try to start it up. Depending on what you tried to do to get into it you could have caused a data cable to come loose. There are numerous small flat multi-wire cables that connect to the motherboard. it's easy to get one to come loose and not realize it.

    I have the same problem with my Braun 7570 as the Jan.8, 2008 writer about the 7526 or 7680 shaver. The blue button came off but the shaver still works

    This button wears out or just fails with time, but is replaceable.

    Braun 7526 Syncro Body Housing with Trimmer
    $12.99, Fits Model: 7526, Type: 5493, Includes back case, front case with trimmer/switch, side grips and bottom 'plug',

    To disassemble the 7000 Series Braun shaver.

    Disassembly of the 7000 Braun shaver is basically the same as the 8000 series Braun shaver listed below. The 7000 is actually easier to disassemble as the plastic is much thicker and the bottom socket cover pops right off as there are less tabs and they are bigger.

    To disassemble the 8000 Braun Series shaver.

    Remove the plastic cover on the bottom that covers the corded socket. Be careful, there are a total of two tabs on the short sides and four very small tabs on the long sides. I usedmy fingernail to create a space big enough to insert the corner of a credit card in the center of the long side opposite the blue light indicator, then gently removed the cover. Using a screwdriver could damage the plastic.

    The two sides then pop off, they only fit on their respective side when replacing. Don't lose the two small black seals on the top of each side piece.

    There are a total of four screws holding the body together. Remove the screws, using the proper flat blade or torx screwdriver. The shaver will then split into. You can then remove the the Motor Drive Unit and the separate circuit board with the batteries.

    This would also be a good time to clean the goo buildup from around the shaver head.

    Assembly is the reverse of above. The Motor Unit will only fit in one way, there is a flat side and a angular side. Be sure the pin for the trimmer is placed in its proper hole, or it won't extend.

    Forfex trimmer FX766 won't charge

    It is most likely the battery, don't even try to open the case if you don't know what you are doing, Forfex will not replace the batteries in these small trimmers as they state it is too labor intensive, I am working on obtaining batteries for these units.
    They have to be soldered in.
