You can replace the battery yourself. The battery can be purchased from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Braun-Li-ion-Battery-Pulsonic-Shavers/dp/B002S8UWMI and to replace it you will need to remove the rubberized back from the case. The black rubberized back is snapped into place on the silver case so to remove it the first thing to do is to remove the retaining screw. This screw is a Torx T8 and you can see it inside the socket for the power cord. Once this screw is removed, carefully insert a small blade in between the edge of the back and the case at the end away from the shaver head and gently pry up on the case back. Once you get a large enough gap, you can grab the edge of the back with your fingers and pull it off the case working toward the shaver head. The edge of the back by the shaver head has a small lip that slips into the case so it needs to be slipped out of the case edge last. Now you will see four Torx T8 screws holding down the plastic back to the silver case. Remove these screws and pull the back off the case straight up. You will now see the battery you need to replace in its holder. Remove the old battery from its holder and push in the new one in the same orientation. Replace and screw down the case back, snap on the black rubberized back and replace its retaining screw. Charge up the battery and you are good to go.

SOURCE: Braun Syncro 7680 Electric Razor
Managed to fix it - actually was a 7680. Only do this if you:
1. have a small screwdriver set
2. are handy putting little delicate plastic pieces and springs together again
3. are prepared to face the possibility that you might break the shaver entirely
4. you are out of warranty so you don't care if you invalidate it
THE PROBLEM is caused by a small flat metal assembly that acts as a spring to hold the blue button in place. That is held by 4 small glue posts. The glue breaks down, the flat spring falls out of place and the blue button is no long in the right place.
TO OPEN UP THE SHAVER
a. gently remove the plastic cover around the electrical socket underneath, using a small flathead screwdriver to pry it open
b. the two metallic sides of the shaver can be pulled away starting at the bottom of the shaver
c. uncrew the four screws on the underside of the shaver
d. remove cutter block, battery/lcd block (make sure you don't lose the grommet around the lcd display
e. pull the spring and little plastic latch off the underside of the switch, make sure you remember how to put it back (took me almost 20 mins to figure out how to get that back afterwards)
f. slide the switch all the way up and pull it off the slide - you might need a little gentle force and a flathead screwdriver to coax it off - be careful you don't break anything here
g. remove the trimmer from the rest of the switch
h. put the blue piece back in place (mine had fallen out), then glue the flat metal spring back in place. I smeared brush-on crazy glue on the flat surfaces to hold it in place, I would imagine a four drops of reasonably strong glue on each of the glue posts would work best. Wait for the glue to dry and achieve strength.
i. slide the trimmer back into place, then the plastic latch and spring - this is the tricky part. Make sure the switch can slide on/off in all positions properly.
j. put the display/battery & cutter block back in place. put the back of the shaver on, hold the shaver together with your fingers and test the switch works in all positions without jamming. If so put the four screws back, followed by the metallic sides followed by the plastic cover of the electrical socket.

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
As for disassembly, it varies depending upon your shaver. Visit "http://web.archive.org/web/20041025223715/220.127.116.11/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.
