You do NOT need to remove the screw. The blades and comes are removed from the top so it is not necessary to take anything out from the underside.
Instructions should be included on the back of the pckage that the replacement heads came in. You can view the instructions at the link below

Battery will not charge on remington hair trimmer hc5550.

You can, but you need some experience with soldering.
Look for the other answers here in this forum, there are some descriptions on how to open the device.

In short: you have to remove the power button (be careful not to destroy it), then slide off the middle plastic part, remove a screw, then take off the upper main plastic housing, remove another two screws and take out the inner device which holds the motor and batteries.

The old batteries can be replaced by 2 AA-size eneloops.

Remington 5130 battery is fully charged and when you put it on it goes click. I noticed that one of the heads moves when you try ot turn it on. Removed that head on the unit works great. Put it back it...

It sounds like either the heads are packed full of hair particles and the blades can not turn OR one of the blades has been damaged and is causing it to lock up.
Try removing all of the blades and cleaning them thoroughly and also insoect the blades, particularly the one that moves when you turn it on

If replacements are required, you will find them at See link below

How do i relace the battery in a remington R5130. I cannot see how to take it apart. John

The plastic cover faceplate on the front where the on/off switch and LED indicator lights "pops" off. (you will need a sharp pen knife blade to get into the seam and start this process.) Once the faceplate is removed you will see 4 phillips-head screws that hold the two halves of the body together. Taking the body apart will reveal the two rechargeable batteries, but the bad news is that these were not designed to be replaced and are actually bonded (glued) to the control circuit board. This is a good example of engineered obsolescence the manufacturer wants their product to be disposable. I am looking for a razor that has rechargeable batteries that are also replaceable.

After two weeks use of my new Remington R5130, now one of the three heads keeps popping off during almost during every shave. Any suggestions?

My R5130 kept falling apart when I shaved. I really like Remington Shavers (Spectrum Brands) and have had good luck with them until the R5130 model.

Two points.
1.) -THEY SHIPPED ME A NEW HEAD ASSEMBLY (BUT)- The original one I got had poorly formed plastics tabs on the blade retainer (head) I Googled Remington Shavers and used their Consumer Service tab to request a fix. They sent me a new head assembly free of charge and yes it worked much better. However, it eventually the heads started falling off again.

2.) RUBBER BAND FIXED IT - I looked it over again and thought that the range of movement and forces on the assembly pieces was just more than the design could handle so I looked for a way to contain some of the movement. I slipped a single thin (1/16"x1/8") - 2" diameter rubber band around the three head assembly and the problem has been completely eliminated. I can shave normally now. The rubber band nearly disappears under the black head flanges so it doesn't even look bad. The shave is a little firmer now but it still has most of the flexibility of the original design.

This simple fix will be a hard one for Remington (Spectrum Brands) to adopt but you might help spread the word. I am sure they will avoid this problem in the next models.
