Question about Norelco Advantage 6705 X Electric Shaver
This one was new, out of the box. It worked for two days and then wouldn't shut off after using. I took it apart. I pushed on the switch directly and it still wouldn't turn off. You can't pull the batteries without cutting something. It's a piece of Junk.

The battery pack is soldered to the shaver's circuit board. Yes, it's a poor design in building something that people can't readily service unless they have a soldering gun, ******, and wick, plus patience. However, there are plenty complaints online already, and my shaver won't get fixed by b-tching some more.
There are 2 choices for replacement:
1. Bring or mail it to a service center to have the batteries replaced. The fee usually runs $29.99-$39.99, which includes the battery, parts, labor, lubrating your motor, cleaning the interior, cleaning/stripping the cutters, heads, and trimmer, plus return shipping.
2. To save yourself $26-33 bucks, make sure you know how to solder and have the equipment described above. you can find single NiCad AA with solder tab for $3ea or a pair for about $7.95+. Table the batteries together, solder a single tab across +/- on one side, and solder the others onto their respective tabs in your shaver.
For me, I'd love nothing than to hobby around and do it myself, but with 3 kids, a full-time, job, Wii, and other hobbies, it's easiest to just send it out... some services will guarantee to have it done within 2 days of receipt. You'll just have a lil beard to test it out when you get it back. :-)

To open up your shaver, remove the lotion cover and remove all 5 screws with a small flat head screwdriver. They have a star head, but also a flat notch. Since they shaver is water tight, the first time you open it up it will be difficult, but if you pry off with your screwdriver it should pop off.
Towards the head of the shaver the batteries are soldered to the circuit board. Pull the tail end of the batteries out of the plastic holder and cut them at the top end as close to the batteries as you can, or CAREFULLY bend it back and forth to snap the metal. Dispose of the batteries responsibly as you would any batteries.
Hope it helps you.

Same thing happened to my father's shaver. After working on it for about 30 mins, this is how I fixed it. You need to start with the top silver piece/cover. Turn it over so you see inside of it. Drop the 3 screens into the holes upside down (so they face out). You need to rotate the screens until they sit as low as possible. Now drop in the 3 blades, again sharp side down. There should be a triangular piece with 3 circles attached to it. One side is gray, and the other side has a black triangular piece. If you look closely each leg of the black piece has a tiny picture of a lock and an arrow. Rotate the black piece in the opposite direction of the arrow. Place the gray side down lining it up with the three blades. Now rotate the black piece, it will lock into position, and hold the blades in place! Finally, the silver head has a little hinge on one side. This hinge is flexiable. Bend it to a 90 degree angle, and slip it into the notch on the top part of the main body of the shaver. Close the head part, in my father's shaver I had to press a lever in the front to snap it into place.
Hope this helps!
