SOURCE: Braun Shaver 360 Complete #8985

the 110 plugin goes into a circuit which changes AC to DC for charging the internal NiCad batteries. If there is NO charge whatsoever in the batteries, the shaver will not work. If you have any electronics background a simple test with a VOM will determine if the bridge rectifier is putting out any DC.[you must disassemble the shaver] If you have no experience on circuits take it to a repair location.

SOURCE: Braun battery replacement

Unfortunately this is almost impossible. The batteries are part of the circuit board, and Braun only authorize their service agents to replace the whole unit, and my local agent found that it had been discontinued. If you still want to have a go, two screws are hidden beneath the two grey plastic caps either side of the charging socket on the underside of the shaver which can be prized off quite easily. Once you have removed the screws, the small plastic section comes off. Now you can slide the outer casing off. A thin black cover at the back can then be unclipped, revealing the circuit board and batteries. The whole unit simply lifts out and would be easy to replace if you could find one! Rplacing the batteries would be far more difficult and risky. Good luck.

I have 6520. when i plug it into a wall jack i does not charge and does not show power from the wall jack any more. this means when the battery is out it will not work any more. please help

Model 6520: If the green light no longer illuminates when you plug it in, you have waited too long to address the battery problem and the circuit board is now damaged. Replacing the batteries alone will not help as it will still not be able to recharge. To repair, you will need a new circuit board but Braun has discontinued for this model. You will be lucky to find one at this date.

model 5520, 5525, 5550, 6520, 6525 and 6550 are all prone to this problem when you neglect batteries that no longer charge correctly. It is suggested that batteries be changed early on when you notice that they are a problem instead of running your shaver from the cord until it dies.

I have a Braun 5550 electric razor that no longer holds a charge. i believe the battery can be replaced but I cannot see how to remove the battery. Can you advise?

You can repair the shaver by replacing the batteries only if the shaver still works. If the shaver no longer does anything...will not run and light does not illuminate when plugged it, the circuit board is now bad and can not be repaired.

To open the shaver, remove the two plastic screw covers on each side of the hole where the cord plugs in on the bottom of the shaver. Remove the two screws underneath. You can then slide the entire outer case off of the shaver. Be careful not to disturb the trimmer as it is extremely difficult to reattach. Inside, you will see a black inner cover. Unsnap to remove it and access the circuit board and batteries.

You will find compatible batteries at You need two. See link below for item and scroll down for helpful installation video

Braun shaver 5790 doesn't take a charge

Hi. As far as the Service Docs tell me, your shaver should have a pair of batteries. In recent cases the batteries are protected on the circuit board with a type of resin which makes it diffiicult to replace the batteries.

However, the docs say the shaver should work with the cord even if the batteries are flat. Perhaps it's your cord that needs replacing?
