To open the shaver body, you will first need to gently pry off the 'cap' on the bottom that surrounds the hole where the cord plugs in. Once removed the side grips will pull off revealing 4 screws. Remove screws to take off back cover and access insides. Inner parts simply lift out. Reassemble in reverse order

If the "reset" described didn't work all that well, as a last resort you can replace the batteries. You have two choices: put in a battery/circuit-board part replacement (drop in), or solder in new batteries. If you've got some soldering experience, I recommend replacing just the batteries. You can buy new NiMH AA 1.2v flat top batteries rather cheaply (less than $4 per cell) and using a soldering iron, take out the old ones and secure the new ones. Look for batteries with at least a 1650mAh rating. Good luck!

It is suppose to be rechargeable and have a 2 year waranty on it. send it bback and get a new one or just take it apart and use regular batteries.

Look on the back of shaver and you will see the little rubber points on the body of shaver. Gently pry these out and with a decent small screwdriver you can then remove the screws to gently pry apart the shaver . You will have to remember how the parts fit together, but there is not that many . The batteries are soldered together and you will have to heat the solder to remove them.

Testimonial: "Fast turnaround on the response with an very easy to follow answer."
If I understand correctly, the shaver is dead but all other components are in good condition. If this is the case, you should consider ordering a replacement lower unit. See shaveroutlet.com link below
Newer models made by Braun do not use all the same parts as your shaver so this would be a good way to go
