Battery Replacement on Norelco 6887XL

I understand that the battery is soldered in. I have a soldering iron but I just can't see where the battery is soldered in. The battery easily lifts off the white plastic cradle on the upper end but the lower end seems to be fixed. I have tried to heat up the end of the battery which appears fixed (so that the solder releases) but nothing seems to happen. Any ideas?

SOURCE: How to replace battery in Norelco 6867xl

You will need to remove the two screws on the back to remove the back cover. Inside, you will first need to remove the two white plastic pieces that the screws you just removed screw into. The larger one snaps in and will have to be popped out from the bottom on each side. The other one has two screws that need to be removed. Once these are removed, you will be able to better access the batteries.
The batteries are soldered to the circuit board but instead of unsoldering them, I suggest carefully breaking the solder tabs off of the ends of the batteries. This leaves the old tabs still attached to the circuit board and you can them simply solder the new batteries to those old tabs. This prevents you from having to put a hot soldering iron directly to the circuit board.

SOURCE: I opened up the case to my Norelco 5601X to replace the batteries

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 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

Does the Norelco 955RX Razor battery replacement require soldering?


Yes, the batteries must be soldered to the circuit board. Some have tried to simply sandwich the batteries in place to make contact but this method is a potential fire hazzard and almost certainly will result in eventual loss of contact.

What's the trick to replacing the batteries? There are thin metal flaps on each end that are soppose to be removed as I understand it, but I'm afraid I will break something if I force it more than I have.


The battery tabs are soldered to the circuit board. You need to use a soldering iron to melt the solder to remove the batteries. New batteries are then soldered in the same slots that the old ones were connected

Can I get replacement batteries for my Norelco 7735X shaver?


I have replaced batteries in several Norelco shavers, typically ending up with better end performance than with the original batteries.

Norelco shavers typically utilize two AA sized NiCad batteries with thin tabs spot welded on each end and the tabs soldered into the circuit board internally.

I have had best success with utilizing Sanyo Eneloop AA batteries, see http://www.google.com/products?q=Sanyo+Eneloop+AA+batteries&hl=en&scoring=p, which are NiMH cells with low self-discharge (i.e. hold their charge for over 6 months) and are free of the memory effects and internal self-shorting problems of NiCad cells.

The key to successfully changing the cells is to leave the original solder tabs on the circuit board and utilize the edge of a single edge razor blade (with great care) rocked back and forth between the metal tab and each of the ends (one at a time) of the original batteries so as to cut the spot weld free from the original batteries while saving the tab.

A single razor blade should do the job, though the blade will now be largely ruined for any further use.

Next carefully flatten the tabs (will be a little deformed by the spot weld break strategy).

Next carefully tin both the tabs and the ends of the new NiMH cells with a small amount of solder.

This tinning is not easy unless you use this strategy: Utilize small drops of "Harris Stay-Clean liquid" soldering flux, a clear (looks like water) zinc chloride liquid flux, e.g. dip a tooth pick into the flux and use just the small droplet of liquid flux which runs off the tooth pick onto the metal. After the flux is where you want the solder, touch a heated soldering iron tip already coated with a tiny amount of rosin core flux for electronic circuit joint soldering to the pre-fluxed area and the metal will easily and rapidly tin with solder.

For the new batteries, use only a tiny droplet of Stay-Clean flux right where you want the solder and touch the costed and heated soldering iron tip to the battery for just 1-2 seconds so as to minimize chances for any damage to the new batteries.

Once happy with the tinning of both the (saved) original batter tabs and the new batteries, hold the new battery in position and briefly touch the soldering iron against the tabs to push it into the battery end and fuse the two areas already tinned with solder.

I does take a little practice to get the above and physical alignments correct. It is helpful, though not mandatory, to use a temperature controlled soldering iron (e.g. set to about 500 F) with a fairly small tip.

Be sure to keep the Harris Stay-Clean flux, even fumes sealed in storage (I usually enclose the Stay-Clean bottle in a clear screw cap larger bottle) because just invisible fumes from this flux on any nearby iron or steel surfaces, over time, will promote rapid rusting. The Stay-Clean is a great product, just be careful with it during handling and storage.

Replacing batteries in Norelco Razor 7886XL


Chris, All rechargable shavers have their battery(ies) soldered to the main circuit board inside the razor. In order to replace the battery(ies), you will need to disassemble the shaver by carefully removing the molded plastic cover(s) that hide the screws (which hold the shaver together). Sometimes located under the shaver head on certain Norelco models, others are under pressed in covers on the back and/or front.

Once you've done that, you have to be very careful not to dislodge any of the mechanical connections from the motor to the cutting heads. With the board exposed, you'll see the batteries, soldered to the circuit board via tabs that are heat staked to the batteries. Note which way the polarity (+ or -) are located on the board. Take a digital picture to make replacement and reassembly easier when you're putting everything back together.

Now with a pre-heated soldering iron, melt off the solder on the battery terminals and remove them quickly. Do not heat the tabs any longer than needed, so as to avoid possible damage to the circuit board. With the batteries removed, you might have to open up the thru-holes where the battery tabs go in, in order to get the new ones in place. Solder them into place and you're almost done.

Now reassemble the shaver and allow the shaver to recharge for at least 8 hours.

If you have any doubts about doing the repair yourself, you can have the shaver repaired by a service in Nebraska that specializes in replacement parts and service for all brands of electric shavers.

http://www.electricshaverstore.com/

They usually can turn around a repair in a week from reciept.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Battery replacement norelco t7500 shaver


If you know how to solder, it's easy to replace the rechargeable battery in the Norelco T7500 shaver, thanks its beautiful mechanical design: You just remove the single screw at the bottom, and the entire charging circuit board & battery simply slides out, still attached to the shaver by a folded ribbon cable!
Then, you just pop off the plastic shields, unsolder the battery, and solder in a new AA 1.2V NiCd solder-tail battery. Or, you can use a higher-capacity AA NiMH battery for a longer run-time, at the expense of fewer recharge cycles for NiMH.
In either case, dispose of old NiCd batteries properly: They contain cadmium, which is an environmental poison!
