Question about Braun Flex Integral 6550 Electric Shaver

1 Answer

My braun 6550 model was recharged but no display seen any more. The shaver has been used for more than 7-8 years. But this time I use it when it is low battery & charging at the same time. I try to charge it few times but no response (no light & no display seen / not working any more) Please tell me does it mean the battery is dead, or I need to buy new model? Thanks for your help.

    If no lighs illuminate when you plug it in, you have waited too long to replace the batteries and the circuit board has been damaged. Becuase Braun has discontinued the circuit board for this model, you will need to buy a new shaver. If you liked this model well, I would suggest that you consider buying the similar model linked below from shaveroutlet.comhttp://shaveroutlet.com/shavers/foil-sha...

This shaver model was very popular back in the 1990's. They aren't meant to last more than 10 years with regular use. They can be reconditioned, as replacement parts are available, but it's probably not worth the trouble. You've put your shaver to good use--it's time for a new one. You can offer up your shaver on eBay for parts as-is and actually make a little $$ (some people can make use of the parts, for those who repair these things). I'd recommend getting an 8000 series model. They are very well made and still quite a lot cheaper than the 9000 (Pulsonic) series.

I need to replace the batteries, but I do not know what part number to purchase. The batteries do not have any part number on them. Braun 6550 shaver


You will find the correct battery type at shaveroutlet.com. See link below. You will need two batteries.

http://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-replacement-parts/shaver-replacement-battery-aa-nimh-p-108.html

I suggest that you read the installation tip on the item page as well.

Also, does the green charging indicator light still illuminate when you plug the shaver in to charge? If it no longer lights, don't waste your time with the batteries because your have waited too long to change them and the circuit board is now damaged. Unfortunately, circuit boards for model 6550 are no longer available from Braun

I want to replace the braun 6550 with the same shaver, but i cant find anyone who sells them so what is the replacement shaver


shaveroutlet.com may have a PCB that could work in your 6550 model but from what I discovered it is not the same as the one you currently have. It will make the razor function but the LCD will not be available to show battery life. you will have a red and a green light only. If you can live with this than I would suggest contacting shaveroutlet.com. I have the same problem as I have a model 6550 and I have been looking for a replacement PCB ..Printed Circuit Board but have been unable to find one. Call Brian at shaveroutlet.com. I plan on contacting him next week ...Feb 7, 2013 with same problem

Braun shaver won't charge


Batteries have an expiry date, Even if you're not using them they are still discharging. Even the regular AA type you buy at the shops.

Batteries can die even if there is a lack of use. And even regular rechargeable shavers that are used all the time have only a limited life a little shorter that=n what you've had.

Should you get new batteries or a new shaver? probably not, you're using 2-3 times a year. I'd recommend buying a cheap Braun or Remington that can take AA's.

My braun plusonic wasable 549 class 2 will not hold a caharge i bought it 5 monthes ago 


You may have ended up getting an older model even though you bought it 5 months ago. The rechargeable batteries lose the ability to recharge after some time (usually a few years). You may still be under warranty with Braun, so check.

Change battry


I don't believe that the cell unit can be changed. It is rechargeable, so if it is not recharging it is probably kaput or your cord needs to be replaced. I looked through all the replacement parts for your shaver and there is no battery available. Here is an address where you can find a place to have it service if you want to or at least speak to someone regarding the shaver.
