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 ?

You are certainly not th first person who hasn't been happy with the Arcitec model. If it never worked well for you from the beginning, there is nothing that will make it work now. It's a shame that you've waited past the 45 day return period.
Your old shaver, 6885XL, was a "Quadra" model. These were a popular model type that is now discontinued. If you still have it, it may be able to be repaired. If you would like to replace it with another Quadr model, you will find one at shaveroutlet.com. See link below
This model is virtually identical to your 6885XL except that it is a newer version

To replace, you will need to remove the back cover by removing the two screws. Take off back cover to access inside. You can unsolder the batteries from the circuit board but for easier replacement, it is sometimes suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries with small needle nose pliers rather than unsoldering them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can then solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs
If you are not able to do this yourself, you can have shaveroutlet.com do it for you. See link below
