Question about Braun Series 5 570cc Cordless Rechargeable Mens Shaver
I considered whether there may have been water damage but I believe the shaver is designed to be washed through. It is less than 2 years old so I presume the internal battery should still be ok and it has always lasted well between charges. I can just return it but what do I do without my only shaver?
Return it and get disposable raizors until it is fixed.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your comments. I had suspected the battery and circuit board now you mention it. However, the razor is presently ok so the fault seems intermittent. My supplier has offered to undertake a repair but i was hesitant to send it when no fault is apparent. I have now bought a cheap Braun 340 in case i do need to send it away. Thanks again."

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".
(Fits Models: 5510, 5515, 5520, 6515, 6520, 6510, 6512 - Types: 5505, 5506, 5705, 5706)
Or, find other by Googling "Braun 5520 Circuit board assembly", and/or replace this model with your number.

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!
