Your batteries are no longer capable of being recharged and need to be replaced.

If you are handy and can dissemble and solder, you can do this yourself, otherwise, you can send it off to a repair service that will do this for you.

If you wish to do this yourself, you'll have to take the shaver apart. There are two (2) small plastic caps on the bottom of the shaver that can be removed with a small pick or flatbladed screwdriver. Once those are out, you can unscrew the two screws that hold the shaver together and gently pry off the side panels.

This will expose the internal circuit board and the rechargable batteries that need to be unsolded. You can then reinstall NEW rechargable batteries and solder them onto the PCB (printed circuit board). You can also purchase a complete internal PCB with the batteries and everything you need, you just swap out the electronics for the new one, although this costs about $39, while the batteries alone are much less.

Put the shell together and reinstall the retaining screws and caps and you're done.

Here's a link to get the replacement batteries for your shaver. They also do the repair service, if you don't want to do it yourself.

Batteries can be replaced in most Braun shavers, while leaving the current circuit board intact. Braun didn't intend for this to be done, and as such does not sell the batteries alone (they include them on the circuit board). There are some aftermarket Braun shaver parts sellers that can supply just the batteries, but they charge a rather high price. Go to a website like "onlybatteries.com" and you can get AA NiMh flat top batteries that will fit your Braun for less than half the market price.

As for disassembly, it varies depending upon your shaver. Visit "http://web.archive.org/web/20041025223715/63.230.9.155/braun/Srv_Man/SHAVER/" for the older service manuals. More modern day ones can be found by Google searching.

Of course, if you're not comfortable doing soldering, then you'll have to replace the batteries along with the circuit board. Suppliers like "shaveroutlet.com" provide these parts, as VtToolMan mentioned.

Braun series 3 no longer holds a charge. what can I do?


It is not that young anymore. The rechargeable battery is (almost?) dead. It is almost impossible to replace it. I once tried it, took me more than a day yo put everything together and still it never was as before.
I have bought a new Braun (799) and I'm convinced this one will live longer. The rechargeable battery in this one, you can shave one hour before you need to recharge it. It lasts a week with me, or sometimes even longer, before I have to charge it again.

Perhaps you just use the shaver with the power cord, like we used to do for 20 years, and start saving for a new one?

You state that is works here so other than the charging not showing I don't see a real problem here. If it drains totally and then does not recharge it is one of two things. Bad battery or bad charger. Replace the charging station first.

The problem you've stated about your Braun model 8585 is related to old batteries. If the charging light still illuminates when you plug it in, you can simply replace the batteries which can be found at the link below

If it completely dead (no light), you will need to replace the circuit board instead. See here:

How do I open my Braun 9585 Pulsesonic shaver to replace the battery??


Hello

Remove the electrical cord from the base of the shaver.

Press down and slide off the panel on the front of the shaver.

Remove the two nickel-plated batteries. Use these batteries as a guide to purchase new batteries at a hardware store or home repair store. Recycle the old batteries when finished. (Many hardware and home repair stores have battery-recycling stations.)

Put the new batteries inside the shaver and press gently to pop into place.

Place the front panel back on the shaver and plug the electrical cord into the bottom of the shaver. Connect to an electrical outlet to charge.

The braun 5510 shaver.. rechargeable or not


If working properly, model 5510 will work either from the internal rechargeable batteries or directly from the cord. If your shaver no longer recharges, it needs to have the rechargeable batteries replaced.
