You have to gently pry off the rubberized grip on the front of the shaver. You will then be able to access the two screws at the bottom. You will also need to remove the clip that is under the blades at the top

You will find batteries for your model at See link below. You will need to order two

Can I replace my Remington Titanium MS 5200 shaver's battery myself and where do I buy the battery?

You will find compatible batteries for model MS-5200 at See link below. You will need two

To open the shaver body, remove one screw on the back. Also partially remove the 4 outer screws found on the metal plate under the cutters. Once these 4 screws are removed you can partially remove the top part of the shaver body (the parts with the trimmer on it). Then you will need to gently pry off the rubberized grip on the front of the shaver. This will reveal two more screws. Remove these to seperate the front and back of the shaver and access the batteries.
You will need to remove the wires from the batteries by melting the solder with a soldering iron. Solder in the new batteries and reassemble. Charge for 24 hours before use

The batteries are soldered into place. You will need a soldering iron and electrical solder to replace them. Unsolder the old batteries from the circuit board and solder in the new batteries

If you are not able to do this repair yourself, can do it for you. See information at the link below

Norelco shaver doesn't recharge.

If the shaver won't hold a charge it usually means that the batteries need replacement. This requires disassembly and soldering skills. It's not hard to do but if you're not handy with a soldering iron a shaver repair shop can do the work for you. However, if you have to pay to have it done and if the blades are more than two years old and need replacement, you might be better off just buying a new shaver.

My shaver will not hold a charge. What could be the problem

Remington model R-9500

Your shaver will not hold a charge because the shavers internal batteries need replacing. If you know how to solder, you can do it yourself or you can have it professionally done. You can purchase batteries or professional repair service from See links below.

If you feel this is something you want to try yourself, you will need to remove the back cover of the shaver. You will easily notice two screws on the back. There is a third screw that is near the very top on the back and it is underneath the trimmer where the trimmer connects to the shaver. Remove these 3 screws to take off the back cover.
Inside you will see the batteries. You will need to remove the metal clip that helps secure them into place. You will then need to use a soldering iron to remove the wires from the ends of the old batteries. Solder the new batteries to the wires and put everything back together in reverse order
Once the job has been completed, charge the new batteries for 24 hours.

Rechargeable Shaver will not turn on even when connected to A/C.

Jessy, Your rechargeable battery has finally degraded to the point that it is no longer capable of being recharged. Also, once rechargeable batteries get to a certain point, as yours have, the use of the power cord won't allow the shaver to operate either, since the battery can't pass the electric current through them to the motor, etc.

The good news is that for a few dollars, you can have your electric shaver working like new again. The batteries are replaceable, but you'll have to either disassemble it yourself, or have this done by a qualified service center, as it requires the ability to de-solder and re-solder it onto the motor circuit board.

If you want to have it done (or do it yourself), you can contact or call them at 1-888-476-1785 and request a quote for having the service done by them, or ask them to verify the correct replacement batteries for your Norelco shaver. Typically, the proper battery for the Norelco 7710 shaver is part number 13810584. This is a Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni Mh) Rechargeable 1.2V with solder tabs, AA size.
You'll find that for a very low cost repair, you can extend the working life of your rechargeable shaver by many more years. I've done this many times myself and find I've saved literally hundreds of dollars, especially given the rather high cost of new electric shavers today.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Replacing batteries in Norelco Razor 7886XL

Chris, All rechargable shavers have their battery(ies) soldered to the main circuit board inside the razor. In order to replace the battery(ies), you will need to disassemble the shaver by carefully removing the molded plastic cover(s) that hide the screws (which hold the shaver together). Sometimes located under the shaver head on certain Norelco models, others are under pressed in covers on the back and/or front.

Once you've done that, you have to be very careful not to dislodge any of the mechanical connections from the motor to the cutting heads. With the board exposed, you'll see the batteries, soldered to the circuit board via tabs that are heat staked to the batteries. Note which way the polarity (+ or -) are located on the board. Take a digital picture to make replacement and reassembly easier when you're putting everything back together.

Now with a pre-heated soldering iron, melt off the solder on the battery terminals and remove them quickly. Do not heat the tabs any longer than needed, so as to avoid possible damage to the circuit board. With the batteries removed, you might have to open up the thru-holes where the battery tabs go in, in order to get the new ones in place. Solder them into place and you're almost done.

Now reassemble the shaver and allow the shaver to recharge for at least 8 hours.

If you have any doubts about doing the repair yourself, you can have the shaver repaired by a service in Nebraska that specializes in replacement parts and service for all brands of electric shavers.

They usually can turn around a repair in a week from reciept.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

How to replace batteriers in norelco quadra electric shaver

The rechargeable batteries are solder into the circuit board of the electric shaver. You'll have to use a soldering iron to de-solder the terminals/tabs from the PCB (printed circuit board) in order to get them out.

Then you'll need new replacement rechargeable batteries to solder back into the shaver.

You can get teh correct replacement batteries from Electric Shaver Service in Lincoln, Nebraska (if you're in the US or Canada). They even do service and repair work in about a week, if you want to have them fix your shaver for you.

Here's a link to the battery page with your shaver model's rechargeable batteries for about $15.00 (plus s&h)

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

How to replace battery pack for a Norelco 6885xl electric shaver

The battery pack is soldered to the shaver's circuit board. Yes, it's a poor design in building something that people can't readily service unless they have a soldering gun, ******, and wick, plus patience. However, there are plenty complaints online already, and my shaver won't get fixed by b-tching some more.

There are 2 choices for replacement:

1. Bring or mail it to a service center to have the batteries replaced. The fee usually runs $29.99-$39.99, which includes the battery, parts, labor, lubrating your motor, cleaning the interior, cleaning/stripping the cutters, heads, and trimmer, plus return shipping.

2. To save yourself $26-33 bucks, make sure you know how to solder and have the equipment described above. you can find single NiCad AA with solder tab for $3ea or a pair for about $7.95+. Table the batteries together, solder a single tab across +/- on one side, and solder the others onto their respective tabs in your shaver.

For me, I'd love nothing than to hobby around and do it myself, but with 3 kids, a full-time, job, Wii, and other hobbies, it's easiest to just send it out... some services will guarantee to have it done within 2 days of receipt. You'll just have a lil beard to test it out when you get it back. :-)
