    I know the bottom cover pieces have to be removed. But how do you release the catch? Does it take a special tool?

The "Braun 5520" doesn't have the 2 screws under 2 small caps on bottom, as described by so many on these boards.
The round plastic plug receptacle 'itself' is the release. (Twist-Release the outer ring.)
Look on the base, where you plug the AC cord in.... Just inside the rim, you will see two small 'recesses', opposite each other, that allow a wedge tool (like a large screw driver) to turn the rim counter-clockwise (left) 45 degrees, releasing the base and housing.
Once this is unlocked, slide the cover off and pop the black retainer cover off to reveal the "PC Board W/Batteries" module/assembly. (Batteries are NOT replaceable by themselves.)
There is a tiny (and I mean "tiny"!) resistor that burns out in the circuit board and causes the majority of power malfunctions in these models.
You can order a new PC Board (with batteries) for approx. $40.00. (+ S&H)
One place is: "http://www.electricshaverstore.com/get_item_5505631_braun-pc-board-w-batteries.htm".

Or, find other by Googling "Braun 5520 Circuit board assembly", and/or replace this model with your number.

To get the ring to turn you have to remove the ring assembly from it's socket and remove the two spring loaded lock pins that are behind it then put it back in it's spot just clips in then reassemble the razor then it will turn and lock

Ron_Ray, your suggestion was fantastic. However, I now cannot close the shaver - I can't seem to turn the plastic plug receptacle clockwise to save my life. Is there a secret for getting it to turn? Thanks again!

R9370 won't work


Any corrosion on the rechargeable batteries usually means that they've gone bad.
For an relatively easy to fix test, disconnect one end of one of the cells wherever it's easiest to solder back together. Then plug in the shaver and see if it works. The LCD may not work, but the shaver itself might.
Looking it up further, I see that it uses a 12VDC cord/charger. So if you try my suggestion, the LCD and shaver should work when plugged in, if the batteries are the problem.

First thing, reset the outlet. That's a common thing looked over. Next (if that doesn't work) is pull out the warranty papers because if it isn't the outlet, then it's the product. If you have had it for less than a year, they should allow you to use your warranty and have them fix it.

I am in Europe and need to recharge my Norelco shaver 5861. Will it damage the batteries if I use an adaptor and plug the shaver into a 220v outlet?


Model 5861 has worldwide voltage capability and can be charged from 100-240V without requiring a voltage converter. If your shaver cord has an American plug, you will need a simple adapter to fit European wall outlets. You will find this item at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

One morning the shaver was hot to the touch (I leave it plugged in because the batterys won't hold power) and it hasn't worked since. Will new batterys fix the shaver?


If the old batteries haven't corroded and ruined the inside of the shaver, you should be able to fix it with just changing the batteries. You will find batteries for model 3805XL at shaveroutlet.com. See link below.

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

To open the shaver, you will need to remove the 4 screws on the back and remove the back cover. 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

It sounds like your batteries are no longer able to hold a charge and are in need of replacement. With all rechargeable shavers, once the batteries are incapable of holding even a minimal charge, the shaver becomes unable to be used, sometimes even wih the power cord plugged into an outlet. My Braun shavers all worked for about a year after it would no longer operate on battery power alone, then the shavers all stopped working regardless of being plugged in directly to an outlet.

As you mentioned you are still under the warranty period, I would suggest you contact the company and request warranty service for your shaver.

if you weren't under warranty, I would advise getting the replacement batteries and doing a repair yourself.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

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', http://shaveroutlet.com/.

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.

Wahl 5000 mens shaver


I had the same problem. All the lights were lit but the shaver would not work even when plugged into an AC outlet. I took it to Mar-Beck Appliances in Independence MO and they said that it needed a new circuit board and the total cost of the repair would be $59.90.
