Question about Braun 360° Complete 8985 Electric Shaver
My Braun razor model #7526 won't charge with or without charger base. Is this something thats repairable? I checked the power cord, and it's putting out the correct voltage, but no lights on the razor light up.

Does the charge light on the razor come on when the shaver is in the base?
The base communicates with the shaver through the charger contacts, so if you
don't have good contact the shaver won't charge and the base won't know that a
shaver is present.
Check that the metal contacts on the base are clean and "springy", and not loose or displaced.
If the shaver charges fine in the base but you can't start a cleaning cycle, I'd
suspect the electronics in either the base or the shaver. Even if the mechanical
switch in the base were faulty, the cleaning-status LED's in the base should come on when it connects with a shaver.

This happened to me as well. Often the batteries will last longer than the rest of the shaver. You can obtain the batteries as cheaply as $12 a piece on "that auction site."
Opening a Braun 7000 Series Shaver
1) Find a thin metal object with no sharp edges (such as a nail file). Use your thumb and pull on the bottom end cord socket part, enough to cause a gap between it and the back shell. Insert the metal object into the gap in the center of the part. THEN pry it off. If you use a regular screw driver, you will likely cause gouges in the plastic. And the best leverage is in the center.
2) The silver side parts are held on by two tabs at the top. With the bottom piece gone, the side parts swing off easily. Don't worry about keeping track of which sides the silver trim pieces go on, as they're designed to fit on only one side (you'll see the cutout for the shaver head stem is off to one side).
3) The case is held together by 4 small torq screws. Use a torq screwdriver--do not attempt to do this with anything else. Be careful to turn the screws slowly, so you don't strip them.
4) With the screws removed, the two halves of the shaver will come apart. The remaining parts can be extracted without any special tools. Keep note of how they are removed, as assembly will be the reversal of removal.
5) Note that if you are replacing the batteries (there are two of them), you will need a soldering iron to detach them from the circuit board, unless you're replacing the whole part.
6) Reassembly is pretty much what you expect--the reverse of disassembly. However, the bottom cord socket part is tricky to get put into place. Pushing straight down on this part will not get it to go in, nor any other obvious way. It's best to get the prongs inserted on one side, then while pushing in on the prongs of the opposite side, apply pressure on the top side surfaces. The part should snap right back into place.
