It is advised that you change the batteries when you realize that they are no longer charging properly. Most likely, only the batteries need to be changed but it is possible that you have caused further damage due to leaving it plugged in continuously and the batteries may hae become corroded or leaked.
If you decide to attempt to change the batteries, you will fin the correct type at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

My philips 6849 rechargable razor will not hold the charge for very long ,how do I correct this problem,? I have had this razor for about three years


The problem is that the battery pack is worn out and need replaced. You will need to see if this unit has one or two batteries. You will find these batteries at shaveroutlet.com. See links below for these two types

Battery will not hold charge


Go to Wal-Mart Electronics dept. and buy a DR9576 Digital Camera battery pack for $14.00, then pry at the seam between the front and back parts of the razor after removing the trim head, dust collector cup, and beard rake assembly from the top of the trimmer and separate the two halfs of the razor. This should allow you to easily remove the battery holder-circuit board-charger plug assembly and pull outthe battery pack which consists of two NiCad batteries which are glued together so as to have opposite polarities next to each other. Carefully using a flat blade jewelers screwdriver, pry the metal tabs off of each end of the batteries and take the DR9576 battery pack which is already joined together in the same configuration and place the flat bar tab onto the end of the pack. Hold the battery holder with the wired side of it facing down, and carefully insert the end of the battery pack you just set the bar style tab onto in the end that has the charging plug closest to it so as to have the plastic "springs"
holding the metal shorting tab {flat bar tab} up against the battery pack. When you do this, be sure to align the battery pack so as to have the other end positive terminal lined up with the red wire with the metal tab on it. As you insert this end of the battery pack into the holder, insert the metal tabs with the wires on them in between the batteries and the plastic holder so that they are pinched up against the ends of the batteries. If you did this right and didn't let the tabs fall out of place, you now have replaced the old batteries with a pack with almost twice the storage capacity as the originals had. Reassemble the razor in the reverse order that you took it apart in and plug the charger into the razor for approximately 36 hours for the initial charge. Also these batteries are NiMH which do not suffer from battery memory which means that they do not have to be nearly dead before they can be recharged in the future. your trimmer should now be fully functioning after complete charge for the first time and should give you years more service while holding the charge for in incredibly long time. Congratulations!!!

Need to change the batteries in a Stanley bar flex light. lost instructions. how do you change the batteries.


I know this thread is old, but I just had to change the battery pack in mine. I could not locate a 4 pin battery pack so here's what I did:

You'll need: 3 NiMH 1.2v AA solder tab batteries, Razor blade, #1 Phillips driver, Kapton tap (standard electrical tape will do), soldering gun/iron, spare 18awg wire
1. Use a razor blade to remove the black sticker from the bottom of the flashlight base, it covers the magnets
2. remove the three outer phillips screws (the inner ones hold the magnets in and can stay installed)
3. Pull off the bottom plate
4. Pull out the battery pack and disconnect it from the flashlight at the 4-pin queeze connector
5. Remove the outer wrap and end protectors from the old pack keeping the end protectors in tact
6. Assemble the 3 new batteries in the same configuration as the old pack using Kapton tape, connecting + to - at the same two spots (use the old pack as a reference)
7. Carefully desolder the 2 wire leads from the old battery pack
8. connect up the 2 power wires to the same two spots as the old pack and insert the temperature probe between two of the batteries as in the old pack
9. Put the end caps on the new pack and wrap the entire thing in Kapton tape to simulate the plastic wrapper you removed
10. Install pack in to base, secure bottom plate and re-adhere black sticker(if needed you can use non-foam double-sided tape or spray adhesive)

The old pack was rated at 1300mAh and I used three 2000mAh each for a total of 6000mAh so theoretically the light should run for about 6 times as long between charges.

After charging razor will not turn on no power how to open razor to replace battery if that is the problem


Most likely, the battery just needs to be changed. Open the shaver by removing the two screws near the bottom on the back of the shaver.<br /> You will find the correct battery at shaveroutlet.com.

Hello,

You will find a battery pack for model 6711 at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

http://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-battery-pack-for-most-norelco-more-p-278.html

To open the shaver, you will need to remove the lotion packet cover on the back revealing 4 screws. There may be a screw near the bottom also. Remove screws to take off the back of the shaver and access the insides.
For easier replacement, it is sometimes suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries rather than unsoldering them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can then solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs
