Re: Norelco doesn't work

I've changed out the batteries. You have to buy them on line cause they are two AA sized nicads that are connected with soldered tabs and have two free tabs that must be soldered in place. That means you have to unsolder the old ones. Make sure you notice the + and - sides of the old ones so the new ones are installed the same way. The case is opened by removing 5 screws. Note how a black plastic clip on top of the motor is placed cause it will fall out. The motor has to come out with the batteries and the circuit board under the batteries. The motor is connected to the circuit board with fragil thin metal leads that can break. One of mine did and I repaired it by soldering a short piece of thin, insulated phone wire. Mine worked really well until I let it run too far down before recharging and now my red light is on, too. I did get it to recharge by dismantling partly and reassembling; may be a faulty connection cause it went back to the red light and wouldn't run until I whacked it a couple times on my hand. It now runs, but still have red light which may mean its not charging. Looking for a manual to see what the red light means. I've also had it blink with a red light several times which may be a diagnostic light indicaton. Here's a link for the batteries, but there are probably other sources

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.

Norelco 6735X shaver:batteries replacing. I removed the 5 screws but the back case remained not removable. How to get to the mounted batteries? Thanks, Guido

If you have removed the 5 screws the back cover will come off. There are seals that make it fit pretty snug. You will need to gently pry the back cover off.

Need to replace the lotion dont know how

Don't use the NIVEA lotion, just coat your face with a sensitive skin shaving gel, like Edge or Gillette, then run the shaver over your face. The shave is much better and cheaper. I gave up on the NIVEA packets over three years ago.
