SOURCE: cleaning base

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.

SOURCE: Braun 7526, how to clean without holder?

Yes, you can easily clean the shaver without the stand, as Russ described. However, you can obtain a replacement base for $18.99 at Shaver Outlet as of this writing. The link is HERE.

The top will not stay down for charging


This is a common problem with the clean/charge base for model 7526. The mechanism inside is broken. You can replace the upper housing that includes the locking arm or you can replace the whole system. Both options are available at shaveroutlet.com. See links below

It will not hold a charge from the stand but will from the cord directly. it also does not clean properly model syncro 7526


The stands for these Syncro models are notorious for breaking. If your shaver charges direcly fom the cord but not the base, it sounds like there is an electrical problem with the base...probably the circuit board is bad. Parts that you would need to fix it are no longer availale from Braun. You will need to replace the unit. You will find a replacement at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Charger arm will not stay locked in place to charge the razor


This is a common problem for older cleaning bases. The part is worn out. You will need to replace the upper housing of the cleaning base. You will find this item available at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

http://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-replacement-parts/braun-7000-series-syncro-clean-charge-base-replacement-part-p-118.html

If repairing the unit is not your thing, you can replace the entire unit instead. See item linked below

My Braun 7526 will no longer clip into the razor for cleaning and charging.


If the arm on the charging stand no longer locks down into place to charge the shaver, you will need to replace the arm or you can replace the entire charging unit. You will find both items at shaveroutlet.com.

My 7526 won't clean cycle


It is probably plugged up at the base. Take the cartridge out and turn it upside down> next clean the openings with a cotton swab< it make take a while as it can get gummy> That should fix the problem

Braun latch


I had the same problem.  Press the blue button to make the "head" of the charging mechanism pop up (probably already stuck this way), then pull it up slowly but firmly.  It should pop out with little difficulty.  Keep pulling it up until you've removed the entire head from the charger, but make sure you don't pull far enough to yank out the wire that attaches the head to the charger base.
You will expose a spring housed in a white tube on the base of the charger.  Pull out the spring, then reassemble.  The head won't pop up automatically anymore, but you'll be able to pop it up by hand--an easy tradeoff for a working clean and charge!
