Norelco Advantage red light meaning and source of manual

My Norelco Advantage shows a steady red LED when placed in the charger and blinks in red several times when removed. I don't have a manual. Anyone know what the red LED means and what several red blinks are suppose to indicate. If you have a manual, does it discuss the red lights? Can't find a manual on line.

The manual has very little on the meaning of the light.
From the section on charging:
"1. First time charging requires a full 8 hours. Green Charge Indicator Light may begin to blink befire 8 hours has elapsed, however, continue charging razor for the full 8 hours. After the initial charge, the razor should be kept in the charging base and will recharge automatically.
Recharge at temperatures between 40 and 95 F. Charging at lower or higher temperatures adversely affects the life of the batteries.
A full charged razor will give approximately 36 minutes of shaving time.
2. Press ON/OFF button OFF. Place razor in Charging Base and plug Base into outlet. The ON/OFF button will light.
3. When the razor is fully charged, the light will blink green.
4. Return razor to Charging Base after shaving.
5. When the light starts blinking red, you need to recharge your razor. You will be able to complete the shave."
The only other mentions about charging are:
"IMPORTANT: To insure optimum battery performance, razor should be run until battery completely discharges twice a year."
"Always place razor in base first, then plug base into outlet. To disconnect, turn razor off then remove plug from base from outlet."

The steady red light showing when in charger shows that
it is charging. the blinking red light when taken out of
charger or turned on and off means it is not fully charged.
leave it in charger till red light turns green.

Turns out that a solder connection I made to the battery pack had failed but made periodic contact. Resoldered it and everything works fine, now.

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.

I no longer have the owners manual. What does it

According to the manual, the red light comes on while charging when the battery does not yet have enough charge to sustain a 3-5 minute shave. The green light stays on steady while the razor is charging, and blinks when it is fully charged. If your battery life is short, they might need to be changed.
