Question about Philips Health & Beauty
It is more likely that the problem you are having now is a result of the batteries missing. The shaver is not made to be used without batteries installed and running it without batteries not only can cause a few different operational problems but can also be a hazard. If you need batteries, you can get them at shaveroutlet.com. See link below.
It is possible that your motor brushes are bad. You can not replace them but you can check them. Remove the motor from the shaver by removing the two metal clips that hold it in place. Then carefully and gently pry off the plastic back of the motor with a flat jewelers screwdrived. Dont stick the screwdriver in too far or you will damage the delicate brushes. You will easily be able to tell if they are worn out once you get the back off. If they are OK, you will need to put the motor back together. Snapping the back of the motor back on can be difficult and you will have to be careful not to damage those delicate brushes. If the brushes are bad, you'll need to get an old used motor from a shaver repair shop. I suggest emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for availability.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much - if batteries are needed, I can solder back in (still read 3V). I cut them out because they were old, and I didn't think needed."
Rechargeable batteries only have a limited life span. You can only use rechargeable batteries for your shaver within couple of years maybe but not necessarily mean for a life time. Yes, it is possible for it to work but not as functional as before because you haven't already used it for years now.
