    I pryed off the 2 plastic sovers at the longer edge, exposing the 4 screws that held the case together.

SOURCE: Remington es1000

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.

STEPS

• 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

http://www.remington-products.com/manuals/ib_mftitaniumu.pdf

In the PDF instructions it describes how to remove the batteries. The instructions fail to mention that there is a spit of yellow glue that is holding one of the batteries to the curcuit board with a death grip. Undoubtedly, you will have to use a knife, not in the glue, but on the skin of the battery. Pull on the teather wire, and slice the battery skin around the glue.

If after removing the batteries, and you are not thouroughly discusted with the manufacturer, then purchase a couple of AA Ni-cad batteries solder the positive of one battery to the negative of the other. then solder the free positive end to the red wire, and then the blue wire to the free negative end. Then try to remember how to reverse the process and put it back together, without leaving any parts out. ;-)

There is a risk of injury by overheating the battery when soldering. That should be avoidable if you remember how to drop solder. Just like its name, it involves having the wire securely held in place. Then hold solder iron over the wire/battery end. Then take some rosin-core solder and apply the solder to the hot tip. Then make sure the newly melted solder lands on the contact. Keep in place until it cools and holds the wire to the battery.

If you think this is better than writing to Remington complaining that they did not make it easier and use contacts, instead of solder, so we can simply pop in a new set of batteries. Or maybe look at other manufacturers, and see if they are any better.

SOURCE: How do I open the Remington 9190 Electric Shaver

Remove the Two ( 2 ) Phillips Head screws on the Back side of the
R 9190 shaver near the Electrical Plug .

Pry off the Gray Rubber cover that those two ( 2 ) now removed screws went thru.
Now remove the Two ( 2 ) exposed screws up near the " Trimmer Switch "
Note: If you Popped off the " Trimmer Switch " during your efforts - DON'T WORRY . It will simply pop back in place when you are finished with your repairs.

I can't figure out how to open the case for battery replacement on my remington R650


You're not supposed to be able to open it. Take it to an authorized Remington repair shop.

My Remington r 650 s battery will not take a charge. How do I replace the battery. It looks to me to be soldered in


Yes, the batteries are soldered. You will need to unsolder the wires from the old batteries and then solder in the new batteries. You will find the correct battery type at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Will not start..?


Battery is probably dead. Replacing batteries is possible but you will tear up the shaver getting it apart as the case is glued together. I suggest purchasing a lower unit. See shaveroutlet.com link below

HOW TO OPEN CASE OF MS3 2000 TO REPLACE BATTERIES


The MS3-2000 was not designed to be opened. The case is glued together on the sides. It cn not be disassembled without causing damage to the case

Instead of trying to replace the batteries, I suggest that you change out the entire handle portion of the shaver called a 'lower unit'. It is very cost effective. You will find a compatible lower unit at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Te battery will not hold a charge.


Batteries in your shaver model were not designed for replacement. Disassembling the shaver will result in damage to the case as it is glued together.
shaveroutlet.com has a simple and inexpensive solution of replacing the 'lower unit'. See link below

Hello, How do I change the battery on the Remington TF300 shaver? and I don't know how to open the case to remove the old battery.


Remove the foil assembly and cutters. You will find 2 screws on the back near the top. Remove screws and you can then pry the front half of case off. You will then be able to access the batteries. There are two batteries connected end to end. You will find replacements at shaveroutlet.com. See link below. You will need to order 2 batteries

My elderly father's remington razor MS3 2700 does not seem to be recharging, when it is plugged in. When the "on" switch is pressed, the red light flashes and it makes a tired noise. Could the recharge...


This model was not designed to replacement batteries. The case is glued together so opening it usually results in damaging the case.<br /> Instead of replacing the batteries, I suggest replacing the 'lower unit' part. This is the entire handle portion of the shaver and can be purchased for just a few dollars more that buying the batteries. You will find this lower unit part at shaveroutlet.com.
