Question about Braun Flex XP II 5790 Electric Shaver

Open Question

Razor wont turn on.

The razor just stopped working shortly after I started using it. It doesnt charge. The light doesnt come on. It seems that no power is getting to the actual razor with or without the stand. This happend within 6 months of getting the razor. I then just left it unplugged for a few months and happend to try again and it worked. Now it has stopped again and I was wondering if anyone had the same problem or new how to fix it.

SOURCE: I have a Braun razor,

Try removing the cord from the clean/charge base and plug the cord directly into the bottom of the shaver. If it charges directly from the cord, it is a safe assumption that the clean/charge base is not working correctly.
This unit is not repairable as the problem is, almost certainly, a faulty circuit board. You will need to purchase a replacement.
You will find a replacement clean/charge base for model 8585 at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

SOURCE: Norelco Electric Razor problem: Jet Clean System won't work

I have had 3 1050CC shavers all with the same problem. Apparently other models have the same issue. After about a year of use, the unit reverses after dipping the shaver into the cleaning solution for a second. Two were replaced by Philips within the 2 year warranty period. I still use the 3rd one. There are several things you can try. If the cleaning solution is low this will cause the shaver to reverse and not clean. Add more cleaning solution. I have noticed that sometimes I have to add more fluid to the unit after a week of use. Sometimes it is necessary to fill the solution a little above the max fill line. Be careful though. Filling it too much above the max fill line can cause cleaning fluid to run out of the bottom after a cleaning cycle. If the above two fixes don't work, then press the clean button and after the unit reverses back up, wait about 5 or 10 minutes and press it again and it should stay down as long as there is enough cleaning solution in the unit. If you wait too long or too little to press the button, it won't work. I have noticed if I press the button immediately after it reverses the same problem occurs. Also if I wait 30 minutes before pressing the button the same problem occurs. There must be some sort of timing cycle. You may have to repeat this process a few times to get it to stay down and clean. This is the only way I can get mine to clean now. Obviously something is getting dirty or wearing out over time in the cleaning system. Since I have had 3 shavers with the same problem, I know many others have had it too. Philips must be aware of the problem. It is frustrating that they don't offer help on their own website and consumers have to band together to solve problems that they should be solving. The two year guarantee is very generous, but there is a design flaw with this product.

Take it back and get an exchange one. Or, manualy check fuse, check wires conected to throtle and motor. If it all looks ok then its most certainly a wiring fault

Hi, my son has an electric razor quad bike with two 6 volt batteries. We have just replaced both batteries and the full charge light shows when you switch it on but it still wont start up. Can you...


The batteries should be 2 x 12v giving an output of 24v anything less than this the Razor Dirt Quad will not run. always make sure you buy genuine Razor replacement batteries.

My razor stopped working. The charge level lights on **** of razor blink when I turn razor on.


Hi -
How old is your razor? It's possible that the battery's shot.
One of the problems with rechargable batteries is that they have "memory". If you put them on a charger when, say, they're only at 50%, then over time they'll start thinking that 50% is actually 0%. This is why it's often advised to run your appliance down to nothing (your razor, your laptop, your rechargable flashlight) before putting it on the charger.

Alternatively, your charger might be acting up. Best recommendation would be to take your razor (and charger) to a shop to be tested. This is an expensive razor, and if you like it, it would make more sense (and be cheaper) to get it fixed rather than toss it into the land fill & buy another.

Good luck...

I no longer have the owners manual. What does it


According to the manual, the red light comes on while charging when the battery does not yet have enough charge to sustain a 3-5 minute shave. The green light stays on steady while the razor is charging, and blinks when it is fully charged. If your battery life is short, they might need to be changed.

Norelco Advantage red light meaning and source of manual


the steady red light showing when in charger shows that
it is charging. the blinking red light when taken out of
charger or turned on and off means it is not fully charged.
leave it in charger till red light turns green.
