Question about Norelco Advantage 6705 X Electric Shaver

1 Answer

Won't charge up, won't run

I think I have destroyed the charging circuit in the razor. I pushed the on-off button while the razor was charging in its charger. The razor is now dead and will not charge.

The charger shows an AC output of +/- 10 VAC under no load, so I assume it to be OK.

I plan to connect two AA's to the motor to see if it is still OK.

Are charging circuits available for this razor?
TIA,
Bill Edwards

    U sure? The input connections on the circuit board located under the batteries in the razor feeds what looks like a small full wave bridge rectifier. This also appears to be short circuited.



    Since all the devices on the circuit board are epoxy covered, it is hard to tell what anything is and the charger itself is a small black epoxied cube. That's why I asked if the circuit board was available.



    The motor is fine and runs OK on a couple of AA's.

Razor heats up when i charge it and it won't turn on


Most likely, the batteries are bad. If the charging light still illuminates when plugged in, you should be able to change the batteries to fix the problem.

I have a Braun razor, 8585. When I connect the stand to the power, the light indicating the level of fluid come one and is accurate. When I put the razor in the stand, the charge light flickers but no...


Try removing the cord from the clean/charge base and plug the cord directly into the bottom of the shaver. If it charges directly from the cord, it is a safe assumption that the clean/charge base is not working correctly.
This unit is not repairable as the problem is, almost certainly, a faulty circuit board. You will need to purchase a replacement.

My toshiko trimmer is not getting charged, even after charging for 6 hrs it works hardly for 5 seconds and stops.what should i do?


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the batteries won"t take a charge anymore. Refer to the Toshiko website at Tosiko.com for battery replacement, however at times the batteries cannot be replaced as they are attached to a circuit board and, you"d need to replace the shaver.

Norelco SmartTouch-XL razor, stopped working won't charge


It is doubtful that the battery is bad because they dont normally go bad suddenly. Usually, they will degrade slowly and hold a charge less and less before they stop working.
It sounds like you may have a loose connection somewhere. Check the leads from the circuit board to the moto and also the tabs that connect the battery to the circuit board. These sometimes break.

Razor charged but not running


You didn't specify how old you model is.
Generally I would say, the battery is failed.
You might try taking it to whereever you bought it and politely ask for a replacement. Its also a good idea not to leave these in cars during sub freezing weather.

The on/off mechanism on my dads braun 6520 is stuck. It won't turn on.


Hello running girl, Have you looked to see if maybe the "lock-off" feature hasn't been engaged?

If you look at the razor, right above the on/off and sideburn trimmer selector, you should see a full bar that goes all the way across the shaver. Push this up toward the shaving head to unlock the razor and the shaver should work fine again.

This is a Braun design feature there to help prevent the shaver from accidently getting turned on when packed in your luggage, etc. and running down a fully charged shaver.

There is nothing like reaching for what you thought was a charged and ready to use shaver and discovering that it got switched on and ran the batteries down.

Other than having the lock off feature engaged, I can't think of anything that would cause the switch not to turn on, unless the shaver was dropped and damaged. If that's the case, you will want to have it looked at to make sure the printed circuit board hasn't been broken, etc.

Typically this isn't something that most folks can undertake a diagnois and repair, so I'd suggest you contact www.electricshaver.com or call them at 1-888-476-1785 to get an estimate for repairing it.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Shaver suddenly stopped working


I had the same problem with mine right after the two year warranty expired.

BUT I FIXED IT!!!

The problem seems to be bad engineering. Apparently the cleaning solution works its way into the circuit board of the shaver.

I took the razor apart (you need very small phillips screwdrivers), there are six screws. First remove the foils, then the blades (just pull them up). Two screws are where the head rotates. after removing the head, there are two more screws underneath the head. There are two more screws on the bottom under plastic caps beside the charging terminal. You can now gently slide the razor's hardware out of the case by pulling up on the head mounting arms while holding the case as you normally would shaving. (This sounds confusing but should be obvious as you do it.)

Looking at the circuit board i noticed some white residue on the board. I gently cleaned the board with small amount of alcohol and q-tips, being careful not to catch any cotton on the components of the board. At this point you can at least confirm that the motor is not burnt out and the batteries are charged by placing a flathead screwdriver between the positive terminal of the battery and the motor. It should come on if the motor and batteries are okay.

Next you hit the reset button at the bottom-front, then see if it comes on using the on/off button. You can do this step with the razor disassembled or assembled.

Hopefully this works for you. Now if only i could figure out a way to clean and refill the cartridges instead of paying $5 for 5 cents worth of cleaning fluid.
