Battery replacement I have 2 of the above units. The battery has gone bad in both of them. I have purchased generic "replacement batteries" but I am not able to figure out how to disassemble the shaver without destroying it. Please give me instruction or tell where I can find instructions. my batteries are dead on my Norelco 6885XL. I need the battery number and instructions on how to replace.

    I have had this unit for over a couple of years... last couple of years it has been in drawer, not used, because it wouldn't start. Tonight, too much time on hands, thought I would try and take batteries out for changing. After unscrewing the philips head screws on head end, I took off the screws for the base. Bloody bugger started right up after I tugged on the smaller pin. Pushed it back in, it quit running, pulled it out after reassembling with forceps, and it runs. It is on battery charger now. Is that pin suppose to act like this?

The proper matched batteries must be used. They must be matched to the charging circuits. The batteries are using solder tabs to the circuit board. They are not user changeable. The batteries are solderd on to the circuit board.

Some industrial electronics suppliers can sell the batteries, or it would be best to order them from Philips. It would be best and safest for you to send the shavers to Philips service to have them change the batteries. The battery type depends on the model and series in the particular model. If the shaver is less than about 4 years old, many of the newer series batteries should be chargeable Lithium Oxide based.

I don't know your exact model, but most of their shavers use a security Torx tool to open them. The Torx screws are usualy hidden under rubber moldings, labels, or buttons that are glued on.

The security Torx tool looks like a 6 sided star with a security pin in the center. It is not compatible to the Allen standard key.

Do I have to change lithe on battery in my whal cordless hair clippers. They have started snagging hair not holding charge. I have had them about 8 years & lost manual .


8 years is pretty good for a rechargeable battery, I would say yes the battery needs to be replaced, although it may be cheaper to purchase a new shaver ?

Battery replacement


To open up your shaver, remove the lotion cover and remove all 5 screws with a small flat head screwdriver. They have a star head, but also a flat notch. Since they shaver is water tight, the first time you open it up it will be difficult, but if you pry off with your screwdriver it should pop off.
Towards the head of the shaver the batteries are soldered to the circuit board. Pull the tail end of the batteries out of the plastic holder and cut them at the top end as close to the batteries as you can, or CAREFULLY bend it back and forth to snap the metal. Dispose of the batteries responsibly as you would any batteries.

How do i replace the battery unit in a hq7390,solder it in or replace whole plastic battery unit?


The battery is soldered in. The easiest way to fix your problem is to purchase the part linked below from shaveroutlet.com. It is a complete shaver handle with all internal parts, including battery. It is compatible with your model and all you would need to do is snap your head assembly onto it

In older models if you leave it plugged in it will ruin the battery. It has to be unplugged after it is charged. Unfortunately it sounds like the battery is bad. Contact a service center to see if the battery can be replaced otherwise you may need to buy a new unit. The newer self cleaning models do not need to be unplugged after cleaning and charging.

Will not start..?


Battery is probably dead. Replacing batteries is possible but you will tear up the shaver getting it apart as the case is glued together. I suggest purchasing a lower unit. See shaveroutlet.com link below

My elderly father's remington razor MS3 2700 does not seem to be recharging, when it is plugged in. When the "on" switch is pressed, the red light flashes and it makes a tired noise. Could the recharge...


This model was not designed to replacement batteries. The case is glued together so opening it usually results in damaging the case.<br /> Instead of replacing the batteries, I suggest replacing the 'lower unit' part. This is the entire handle portion of the shaver and can be purchased for just a few dollars more that buying the batteries. You will find this lower unit part at shaveroutlet.com.

Battery replacement


The batteries are just 2 rechargeable Ni-Cd AA's, soldered together at one end to form a connection. I popped in two regular AA batteries, formed a connection between them, and it started spinning again!
