SOURCE: Norelco model 5885 XL Battery replacments

I just installed two brand new Eneloop cells and it will only charge up to 35 minutes on the display (I had been able to get up to 52 minutes with the original NI-CAD's). I also discovered that it would not recognize the capactiy on the minute meter until I drained the batteries and recharged the unit. When I went to drain the batteries they ran for 2 hours and 15 minutes!!! But again the display only shows 35 minutes right now after an hour charge when it says FULL. I'll leave it on the charger and see what happens. I used a pair of needle nose pliers and "rolled" the metal tabs off the NI-CAD's. Snapped the one on the negative side but got the positive side off clean. I couldn't get the strips to solder back to the new Eneloop batteries so I had to use electrical tape which seems to be holding fine. The battery holder holds the positive and negative terminals against the old tabs just fine. Also I learned that if you hold the power button on long enough it will cycle through a test function. It will go to zero minutes and all the way up to 35, then turn on and go back to zero stopping at the appropriate cleaning cycle times (takes about 40 seconds to do the test so don't touch the power button until it's done). Not sure if the batteries will still go 2 hours and 15 minutes after being charged in the shaver, but they do when chaqrged outside the shaver. Just my two cents!

SOURCE: rechargable battery run down

The problem is that your rechargeable batteries2.gif have become degraded to the point that they won't take and hold a charge. Because the batteries2.gif have become so badly degraded, that even with the power cord plugged in, you still can't use the razor with AC power either.

If you want to have the shaver repaired for you, you can contact www.electricshaver.com or give them a call at 1-888-476-1785 to get an estimate of the repair costs. Typically it takes about a week or less once they receive your shaver. They also stock most parts for many brands of shavers, including your Braun. I've used them for getting parts for several of my shavers and found them to be a very good company.

If you're handy and have a soldering iron you can disassemble the shaver and remove (unsolder) the bad batteries and solder in a new set. There are two small caps on the bottom of the razor that cover the screws that hold the body havlves together. Remove these with a small pick or small flat bladed screwdriver and remove the screws and carefully remove the body halves and that will let you get to the main board and the batteries.

Simply heat up your soldering iron and melt the end tabs off the batteries and remove them. Then solder in the new ones and make sure they are properly secured and have adequate solder on the tabs for a good connection. Put the covers back on and install the screws and and the caps and your all set for recharging the shaver. Let it charge for at least 8 hours and you should be all set!

So whether you decide to have the repair done for you, or do it yourself, I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards

SOURCE: Braun 5614 rechargeable cordless shaver light flickers

Your batteries are starting to degrade, but the good news is they're still holding a charge for a week, so you really don't need to rush to replace them at this point.

The flickering of the charged indicator is normal, as the shaver is still plugged in and the batteries are fully charged. The flickering is due to the batteries chemicals breaking down, and as such, the charge cycle keeps "topping" them off while it's still plugged in.

When you finally aren't able to get a decent amount of cordless operation and run times from your shaver, then you'll want to get them replaced, whether you decide to do that yourself or have it done by a professional service center, is up to you.

Here's a reference for your future use. www.electricshaver.com carries replacement (factory OEM) batteries for most brands of shavers and they also will provide the repair/replacement service for you, should you decide you don't want to do it yourself. You can also give them a call at 1-888-476-1785 and request a price quote, etc.

Anyway, your shaver is working fine and all you need to do is make sure you're not letting the shaver stay plugged in and charging constantly for more than a day, since any "extra" chargind isn't doing anything except keeping the batteries at a constant state of charge. Heat is a byproduct of charging and discharging any battery and as such, you want to allow for a cool down period before recharging them.

I tend to use my shaver until it is almost completely discharged before recharging it. By doing this, you can get the longest working life out of your batteries before you'll have to replace them.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Batteries for your shaver must be soldered in place. You will find battery pack for this model at shaveroutlet.com. Link below

http://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-battery-pack-for-most-norelco-more-p-278.html

To replce, first open the shaver by removing the two screws on the back. The back cover can then be removed and you can access the batteries. For easier replacement, it is sometimes suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries rather than unsoldering them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can then solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs

If you are not able to do this repair yourself, shaveroutlet.com can do it for you. See info link below

How to remove rechargeable battery for norelco 7864


hi minglim, welocme to the forum!
    Replacing a Norelco Shaver Battery Things You'll Need:Torx screwdriver set Rechargeable Ni-Cd AA battery 1)Slide up the sideburns trimmer on the shaver .2)Try the various torx head screwdriver sizes to find the fit for the two screws holding the top of the back shaver cover on. Unscrew the two screws that are under the sideburns trimmer that hold the back of the shaver on. On some Norelco shavers, the back will now slide off if you apply downward pressure on the shaver's back. Other Norelco shavers have one or two torx screws on the base of the back cover on the shaver; if so, unscrew them also. Place the screws in a safe place. 3)Take the back cover off the shaver. Some shavers may have a strap fastening the battery down. Unfasten the strap if there is one. Take out the battery. 4)Replace the old battery with a new rechargeable Ni-Cd AA battery. Re-fasten the battery holding strap if there was one. 5)Replace the back shaver cover and re-screw in all the torx screws,
