Disconnect the blade and ensure the drive Lever is moving if it is apply pressure to the lever and make sure it still moves.

Dull razor blades after moisturizing stripe wears off

Expensive replaceable cartridges are only made to offer 4-6 "good" shaves for most people. Sorry - that's the deal. You can strop cartridges (in on direction only) on denim and pick up maybe a dozen more - search youtube for examples. I finally gave up on carts and moved to a straight razor; a razor or two will last for a lifetime with good care. There IS a learning curve for safe use and maintenance procedures. Find a straight razor forum if you want great shaves and good advice on what to buy, what not to buy and how to be safe.

Double edged safety razors are also a very good alternative for better, smoother shaves and WAY less expensive blades. Same advice - find a razor forum to save money, buy right and avoid nicks.

How do i change the battery in panasonic es-rt51 electric shaver

Panasonic ES-RT51 battery problems?
If your razor battery runs down after only a few shaves e.g jumps from 60% to zero Let the razor completely discharge by leaving it switched on until the blades stop moving completely. (This can take over 24 hours so be patient) When they are stop moving recharge the battery and you will find the battery will charge and discharge just like new!
(This may take a couple of discharge cycles). Only charge the battery when it is flat after this and the problem SHOULD not reoccur.

I have a Philips Norelco 7310XL razor and I have a problem. I recently moved, and in the process, something happened, and my razor isn't working. When I turn the razor on, the blades turn slightly and then...

It sounds like maybe one of the blades is damaged and it is jamming the whole thing. Try taking apart the head assembly and then insert each head one by one turning the shaver on in between each one. This should identify if one is damaged and causing the problem

If you require new heads, you will find them at See link below

I have a Homedics PC200 which I have owned and used for at least 10 years. Is there a way to replace the head or sharpen the blade? It "bites" my boy's scalp when I use it.

go to a razor shop or electric appliance shop and ask for the replacement blades for your model. You can usually unscrew the blades with phillips screw driver. Be careful when replacing the blades to adjust them properly so the top blade doesn't extend over the underlying blade.The blade that moves should be retracted 1\16 of an inch

Wahl razor's not cutting, how do I fix it?

have you tried taking apart the blades and replacing them so that they line up together? Have you had a professional shear sharpener look at your blades? mabie all they need is to be sharpened again. Blades like knives or scissors need to be sharpened every once in a while. Also try replacing the blades with a new ones. The blades may have worn out. also try oiling the blades every once in a while.
