    My 3 year old razor needs battery replacement. I've opened it and found that the twin battery was fastened to the base. I'd appreciate to know whether is clipped or welded to the motor pods. Thanks

    shaved ok yesterday, today will not operate, also no charge indicator indicating wanting charge

  • Anonymous Mar 25, 2014

    I dropped the shaving head, the blades fell out. I reassembled the heads, tried out the shaver to find the heads will not rotate. When the start button is pressed, a click is heard but no rotation.. When shaving head hinge is open, the spindles rotate without any problem. Any ideas?

Apparently you need to change the heads within two weeks after the red LED first starts to flash, otherwise the memory chip inside needs resetting. This also poses a further question. How does the unit know the heads have been changed or not ?

It means they want you to buy a new shaver head. U dont need too, and the light will automatically go off after 7 shaves from when it first came on.

The red light showing the shaving head remains on and the shaver discharged the shaver is one year old


Philips suggests changing the heads every 12 months. The indicator is instructing you that it is time to change them. You will find replacements for model 1060x at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Red light at bottom flashes even when razor ids fully charged. What can causrethis?


When the battery is almost empty (when there are only 5 or fewer shaving minutes left), the battery symbol lights up red.

Make sure that the battery does not have a memory effect. What I suggest is taking the shaving head unit off and running the shaver till empty, then recharging. Check if the red light is still flashing.

There's also a head indicator at the bottom of some shavers.

To remind you to replace the shaving unit, the shaving unit symbol flashes (all types) and you hear a beep when you switch off the shaver (RQ1090 only). This happens at the end of 7 successive shaves to remind you to replace the shaving unit.

Without knowing what model you have it's difficult to diagnose further.

Red L.E.D light won't stop flashing


Shaving head check indication After two years of use the red shaving unit symbol î will flash for 30 seconds during 7 shaves to indicate that you should check the condition of the shaving heads. This indication is based on an average shaving time of 3 minutes per shave. When the shaving head symbol flashes, all other symbols and lights are out. When the shaver is switched off, the shaving unit symbol disappears. When the red shaving unit symbol starts flashing, you should check the shaving heads for possible damage. If the shaving heads are damaged in any way, they must be replaced in order to obtain optimal shaving results

Head Replacement LED still flashing


this is the solution I recieved from tech support from norelco. Here is the conversation: I do not know if that makes any sense or not but will wait and see how it goes.

andy soni: the 3 blades icon keep coming on
Charlie : Sorry for the delay in my response, as I was facing some technical difficulty.
andy soni: I replaced the blades
Charlie : I would like to inform you that though even you have replaced the new heads the indicator stay remain till 2 weeks.
Charlie : The replacement head indicator will remain visible for 2 weeks to remind you that with new shaving heads you will guarantee yourself optimal shaving performance.
Charlie : After 1 week the beeps are audible for 5 seconds. After 2 weeks the beeps are audible for 10 seconds. After 2 weeks it automatically disappears.
andy soni: the head does not flash or anything is that normal it just stays lit
Charlie : Yes, Andy. And it will disappear after 2 to 3 recharge cycles.
