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.

Cannot charge the 12 volt battery more than 10 volts. Is there a service manual available


You need to replace the battery. There is a bad cell in it. When a cell becomes bad you lose about 2 volts.

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.

Trying to charge my Garmin 396 with external power. The unit is showing "Battery Missing". However my battery is there.


I had this problem on an aftermarket battery I purchased last year. It worked well for several months but recently gave me the battery missing warning and would not operate the unit at all. I checked the voltage on my Garmin OEM and on the new one. The Garmin OEM, showed 8.1V on two readings, between the center and right terminals and about that between the two outer terminals. The OEM showed around 5.7 so that implied that it had some bad cells and not a broken wire. I tossed it and bought a new aftermarket unit last week. That one doesn't show a full charge and when I switched back to the Garmin battery it shows 00:00 time remaining, but still 8.1V. Maybe I should have just bought a new Garmin battery!

If the battery of my laptop is low i plug the ac power but still not operational


Hi Paul.
There are few possible causes for what you've described:
1. The outlet doesn't work properly - Try using a different one.
2. The power adapter is mulfunctioning or doesn't match your laptop - try using another original adapter or a generic one (make sure the Voltage is EXACTLY the same as your laptop requires and that it supplies enough Current).
3. The battery has gone bad or finished it's life-cycle - Replace the battery.
4. There's an electric problem with the power circuit on the motherboard - replace it in a service center...

Good luck and best regards,
Pelu.

My charger will not charge


1) Clean the battery contacts on the radio, battery and charger with a pencil eraser.
2) Test the charger by turning the radio on while attached to the charger (do NOT transmit, as this may cause damage to the unit). If the light on the charger comes on while the radio is turned on, you have a good charger, and a bad battery.
3) If the above test detects a bad battery, replace the battery.
4) Not sure if the battery is bad? Trade the battery out of a known good unit into this one to see if it solves the problem.

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!
